Episerver Content Cloud

Overall Satisfaction with Episerver Content Cloud

Episerver CMS is used in the whole organization. We have around 200 editors. It solves the overall communication for students, employees, and visitors. The solution has many integrations with other systems for example education information, jobs, student record information. It solves many problems for both users and editors. For example, we use Episerver for creating welcome letters for new students. Previously this was done manually with pdf:s, tables, and HTML pages. This has saved a lot of time for the editors but it also gives the students a better experience. We have also created a student web that collects student records, courses, schema, etc. in one place. This makes it very easy for the student to find information and it has reduced questions to our service department with 30 %.

Episerver is a CMS and is not quite comparable to SharePoint or Teams. WordPress is a great product but not as sophisticated as Episerver.
Episerver CMS is well suited for a site with many editors and pages. You will find that it is fast to get going and develop for, and thanks to the large community you will find help and suggestions. It is easy to make integrations with other systems. A scenario where it is less suited is for example when building complex forms.
