Overall Satisfaction with Cascade Server

I used Cascade Server when I was managing my residential housing website. I found that while I was able to input text and pictures quite easily, I found the other features less accessible. Facets such as, background design and enhancements, were difficult to navigate and took away from the overall experience of website development. At another position, I used the software for a similar purpose, but again I was not pleased with the ease of use. As an individual who is at a beginner level with website management, I struggled to produce the creative ideas that I wished to implement. I would prefer an interface that allows for easy transitions and apparent features.
  • Text editing
  • Picture implementation
  • Basic display functions
  • User interface
  • Media implementation utilities
  • Basic start-up guide
  • Lack of accessibility
  • Poor navigation utilizes
  • Decrease in employee efficiency
Cascade Server was the software I was required to learn. I have no further experience or suggestions for this software, other than its usage in basic website development functions. AutoCAT software allows for immediate access to basic functions of design, as well as the introductory tour, which provided the necessary start.
I am a basic website developer. I understand that other colleagues have experienced the various abilities for this software. However, for me, I am not able to design the creative ideas that spark at a moments notice, because of the general inaccessibility. I believe that this software has advanced since my last usage, but continues to have room to expand.
Cascade Server has its appropriate uses and its faults. I would recommend this software to a beginner level website developer. It is necessary for the basic functions of marketing, however, it lacks intricate tools to further progress advanced innovation. My biggest complaint with the system is its lack of accessibility to its users. I would prefer a software that can be easily managed on another interface, and provide the necessary skills for immediate usage.
