Overall Satisfaction with ExpressionEngine

Expression Engine is used as an option for building new client websites on a flexible CMS platform. It is used by the developers when building new sites and then we train our client on how to use the CMS for making updates on their own website.
  • Expression Engine is flexible so you can mold it to your specific needs. This is useful because you can utilize the platform for all your projects and continually improve on it and re-purpose features that you've built out.
  • It's extremely user friendly so clients love it!
  • As a Project Manager working with great developers, I never had any complaints with the way the CMS was built out. It was always really simple for me to work with.
  • Increased efficiency - it allows for very quick updating of news, press releases, photo libraries, and other new content. You don't need to prep and request updates from a developer because so much content can be managed by project coordinators, project managers, or account managers. Also, the client has the opportunity to make their own updates!
  • Open Source - secure, reliable, and quickly evolves.
Expression Engine is certainly for more advanced website development than a templated site such as WordPress or SquareSpace. But for this reason, it allows you to have freedom in the creation of your website and still maintain a very user-friendly management system. It is not cost prohibitive, so if you have the development chops, it's a sure fire way to build a solid website.
Expression Engine works great on sites from small to large. When built well, the content is organized in a fashion that makes updating, adding, or removing content quick and simple. It allows for flexibility that you can't get from a template site, but is not so expensive or complex that it becomes prohibitive. I highly recommend the product.

Using ExpressionEngine

5 - Development and Account Management
Although my new company has not used ExpressionEngine for any of the client work I have been involved in here, I would most definitely renew ExpressionEngine for any project I am working on.
