Overall Satisfaction with Evoq Content

It is used to manage our customer support site and software sales site. We utilize the Answers, Discuss, and Gamification aspects of Evoq. We also provide an area to download updates. We've extended Evoq to provide our own solutions to various business problems. We also install Evoq on sites for other clients.
  • Evoq is very extensible. As long as you can program in ASP.NET, you can customize it for any solution you may need.
  • It has great user controls and granular permissions for users allowing you to control access not whole sections of the site, individual pages, or even parts of a page.
  • Some of the modules you can purchase allow you to derive far more value than what you pay.
  • It can be a bit heavy-handed when it comes to styling. It's sometimes necessary to spend a little extra time to overcome styling issues.
  • Up until version 8 of the core DNN platform, implementing single page applications (SPAs) required extra efforts.
  • It is very difficult to split a site across multiple servers for load balancing
  • Our time to market is much faster with Evoq than with other platforms. Out of the box it is more secure and capable than most alternatives.
It is well suited for intranets and corporate websites where multiple people or teams will be updating content. It's overkill for small sites but even then, it is much more secure and robust than competitors like Wordpress. Additionally, the API encourages modules to remain separate from the platform. No mucking around with PHP.
