Overall Satisfaction with Concrete5

I currently build websites for my freelance clients using Concrete5 CMS. Concrete5 allows my clients to edit website content directly on the webpage. This enables my clients to quickly and easily update their website with little to no programming knowledge. Since is a PHP based CMS system, it also very easy to install on a clients web server.
  • n webpage content editing.
  • Very easy to use and understand.
  • Short learning curve for Web Developers.
  • PHP Based CMS system.
  • Improve ability to create web page navigation
  • Happier customers because they can easily update their website content.
Concrete5 compares very well to other content management systems such as Wordpress, Drupal, Expression Engine and Joomla. Concrete5 seems to have the easiest learning curve from development standpoint and much easier to use for the end user.

The Concrete5 marketplace and constant improvement of Concrete5 by its developers are the major reasons why I will continue to use this product. The marketplace has hundreds of add on modules that can improve the functionality of your website. The developers of Concrete5 have many training videos that help web developers get up and running with a Concrete5 website in very little time.
