Overall Satisfaction with Episerver Content Cloud

We use EPiServer to manage the content on our corporate website across multiple languages. It is used mostly by the marketing department with support from internal development. The plan is to eventually roll it out to other departments to manage their content in the future. It has allowed us to offload content updates from the development team onto the content creation teams. Technical knowledge is no longer a requirement to manage the website.
  • Translation/localization support
  • Workflow management
  • Flexibility
  • Deployment (when using a test environment)
  • Reporting
  • CMO across external sites
  • Increased efficiency (updates moved from developers and into the hands of content creators)
  • Real-time updates
EPiServer had the right mix of features and cost for what we were looking for. We especially liked the robust translation and localization options since we needed to support multiple languages in many different locations. The support options have gotten better and better over the years as has their update schedule.
In our experience it does a great job of handling hundreds of pages across multiple sites and languages. It might be overkill if you only have a single site in a single language with a few dozen pages. You also need to invest a good amount of time in initial setup and future custom development. If you're not ready for that, EPiServer probably isn't for you.
