Overall Satisfaction with Episerver Web Content Management

I have worked with Episerver for quite some time now and I (or future client of ours) couldn't be happier with the tool. Having also looked into its competition and trying it out for bandwidth etc., Episerver CMS stands out the best.

It is being used only on my system right now, but I am trying to go full fledged on recommending this portal to our sister companies and others. The software has been designed very neatly and the content editor section of the tool can get a little better than the current look. But all in all, it has been a far better experience when compared to others.
  • The content management framework has been built very nicely and it completely stands up to the promise that it makes of being the best in the market. Not that I've tried all of the other products, but choices ruin decision making and I'm sticking to this one.
  • They are constantly working towards bettering themselves and that's the promise I need from my content management platform company. Reiterate and improvise.
  • APIs are one of my greatest accomplishments that this product has as they are extensively available and are very developer friendly.
  • We had a little bit of an inconvenience with the User Interface content display of some of the pages on the portal, but we're sure that will be taken care of in the near future.
  • Actual implementation for out of the box product test drive was a little time-consuming. With the help of the support team, it was all good. Would be good if we wouldn't need to contact anyone in the future though.
  • Documentation could be better.
  • The cleanliness of the product is too damn good, hence efficiency is doubled and gets work done much faster and with a clean mind.
  • APIs and libraries or modules implementation is easy which helps during make/test setup time.
  • Nothing negative as such for now. We need to get more used to it.
Bandwidth, Drupal 8, core APIs.
The companies that have had hands-on experience with powerful content management tools can give this one a go and may think of moving over. Companies, small or large which have periodic implementations or multiple web pages can certainly be handled by Episerver. There are very few scenarios where Episerver couldn't be used in an organization and ours has extensively used it due to its API, HTML, search engine optimization easiness, so it's like a merry-go-round for us.
