Overall Satisfaction

ExpressionEngine is used by myself and by a number of my clients to make managing the company website dead simple.
  • Accommodates any custom design
  • Ease of use for non-technical clients
  • Scalability and flexibility for future growth
  • Third party modules aren't always up to date with current version.
  • Updating process is a bit cumbersome.
  • Clients actually update websites built with EE because it's simple to use.
  • Conversions are more a function of UI / design but I will say last week I had a client inform me that they had a 34% increase on a contest they run after a redesign done in EE.
  • Wordpress,Drupal,Joomla!
In my opinion ExpressionEngine is a far better system than these primarily because you aren't inheriting pre-built front end code (all of these systems work on this model) and clients have found EE easier to use than even custom configurations of these three.
It just works. Their support team is really top notch as well.
Is really well suited to accommodate any modern website design, including mobile friendly responsive website designs. Can't think of a scenario where it hasn't been a good fit for a client yet, again because of it's inherent flexible nature.
