Overall Satisfaction with Concrete5

We currently use it for one of our company websites. This website acts as a marketing tool for us as well as a means for us to utilize Concrete5 as part of our business. If we are to provide Concrete5 implementation services, it's good for us to run a Concrete5 website ourselves.
  • Concrete5 is really good at providing a functional WYSIWYG for managing website content. It's the only CMS we tried that truly acts as such without any major issues.
  • Similar to the above, in-context editing is a great feature. It allows non-developer savvy people to see exactly what they're doing.
  • One click update is really handy. Don't have to download a bunch of files locally, then upload it, and then run a separate update process in order to update Concrete5.
Concrete5 is probably the most user friendly for clients. I selected Concrete5 mostly because I found out about it and didn't really believe its capabilities and had to try it out. It pretty much is what a non-tech savvy person would want in a CMS for content management.
It is well suited for clients who want us to recommend a specific CMS and don't have a preference or much experience with using another CMS. It isn't quite as appropriate when clients are already using another CMS.
