Overall Satisfaction with ExpressionEngine

I used ExpressionEngine as a student worker in the IT deparment while attending college. I worked as a Web Developers Assistant running ExpressionEngine from the IT perspective as well as all the other departments on campus. I learned ExpressionEngine and then started training others across campus. It was a really interesting experience. I would work on projects for people in the different departments as well as try and help them learn it so they could be independent with the software as well.
  • Very user friendly for both IT as well as other departments using the software.
  • Has everything necessary for running a website for a University.
  • Laid out in a way that it's easy to describe to someone through email or over the phone how to do something.
  • Making the icons a little bit better to understand, bigger.
  • Copy and paste functionality a little bit better.
  • A bigger section to write in so you don't have to scroll as much.
  • Definitely better customer service.
  • Easy to pin point problems and troubleshoot them.
  • Positive in the way for someone not specialized in IT can use the product well.
I have only used ExpressionEngine while working in the IT department. I know they changed software right before I started there and they were so impressed with the new software ExpressionEngine vs the old software they got rid of. It does seem hard to compare ExpressionEngine vs competitors without using a competitors software, but looking that way ExpressionEngine has everything that I ever needing while working with it so I wouldn't want anything else.
I believe they will renew it because of all the positive feedback everybody working with it had. I have no decision in the matter because I do not work there currently. However, when I left my supervisor sat down with me to discuss everything I thought about ExpressionEngine because I was the one person working on it constantly. She then decided from that conversation they were going to stick with it!
Is the software user friendly?
How easy of a process is it to create a new webpage?
How will this benefit the company?
