Overall Satisfaction with Kentico

Kentico is used across all branches of our organization. Our websites (river and ocean cruises-based travel) is based on it. We build landing pages, create offers, provide brochures through it, and much more. Some of the visitors actions are tracked, so it is possible to measure site's effectivenes for marketing needs.
  • It has a very intuitive module-based way to create page layout.
  • It is mobile friendly.
  • It is customizable.
  • You will build skills to use modules and build pages quickly.
  • You can add Bootstrap an HTML to you existing widgets and achieve a wide variety.
  • It uses a folder structure to organize content, so unless you watch out, your file tree can get hard to search.
  • Form builder is good, but may be improved.
  • More options for WYSIWIG editor would help non-technical people to style their content in rich text module more efficiently.
  • Sometimes it gets hard to find a wanted item in a media library.
  • It connects with consumers by providing integration with social media.
  • It helps search engine optimization.
  • It provides analytical tools to measure and improve site effectiveness.
I recently started learning Sitecore which resembles Kentico in some aspects, and I find Kentico to be more user-friendly and intuitive. Sitecore is a more robust system, but in my opinion it gives content administrators too many options, and has a way steeper learning curve. So, I prefer Kentico.
Content Author / Administrator
If a simple site with static pages is needed, then Kentico maybe a bit of overkill. But if you have a lot of dynamic data feed like our company has, than it is a wise choice. Although not widely used, the system is still respectable, and there are digital agencies that offer good support for it.
