Overall Satisfaction with Cascade Server

We use Cascade Server to build and maintain the Website. The product allows us to easily expand and customize our website on a daily basis.
  • We can customize the edit screen to add form fields which allows us to then customize the output.
  • We can set permissions to view or edit content on a very granular level.
  • We can customize the site template as needed.
  • Cascade has few pre-built templates or plugins, so our site is a fully customized build.
  • XSLT formats can be challenging to edit.
  • We have been able to leverage GA stats to track the conversion rate of our visitors.
WordPress offers a wide range of prebuilt templates, but Cascade Server offers great customization for folder structures and workflows.
Overall, we have found Cascade Server to be an excellent CMS for an enterprise level website. We have segmented our news and events content onto separate platforms, WordPress and Helios, due to ease of use and to mirror the web architecture at our university.
