Overall Satisfaction

We use the software to manage 8 websites for all our affiliates. This product allows us to share information between the domains and gives us great control over how that information is managed and displayed.
  • Repeaters - This allows for us to programmatically build webpages without the need to build each page multiple times for multiple offices/products
  • Templates - With the use of templates, we can assign it to a page or site uniformly to provide perfectly spaced pages every time.
  • Support - Like Johnny on the Spot, the support team is quick to reply and always provides links for learning more.
  • UI - We are on 7.0 which has just about reached end of life, however v8 is out and am looking forward to seeing the UI made more intuitive
  • Terminology - Without reading the entire HUGE manual, the widgets and web parts available in the software are not self explanatory.
  • Steep Learning Curve - It takes months to become familiar enough with the system to diagnose minor issues.
  • I must agree that that once over the learning curve, that employee efficiency and effectiveness has gone up.
We have far too much invested, both money and time, to move away from this product. With the release of v8, we anticipate smoother transitions in the future.
This is great and flexible for medium to large size businesses with pages in excess of 100. The built in web parts provide functionality right out of the box allowing for just basic understanding of JavaScript and other database languages.
