Overall Satisfaction with TerminalFour Site Manager

We are using TerminalFour as a content management tool for our websites. We create custom templates that are then used by novice users who we've trained in on TerminalFour. It's being used across many departments and schools. This helps us give power to users in departments who are not technically savvy like us developers/designers. This makes it possible to keep our websites fresh and current because many more people can make changes. TerminalFour has proven to be a flexible and easy to use system for our end users and though it's not perfect I would recommend it to others.
  • Easy to navigate site management.
  • Customizable templating with not much limitation.
  • User management by groups.
  • Selective publishing.
  • It can be a bit buggy with media library management.
  • The html editor can act pretty wonky sometimes with the html it translates things into.
  • The navigation builder tool is pretty confusing.
  • Increased employee efficiency.
  • Happier internal customers because changes are much easier than they used to be and we can often empower them to make their own changes to their websites.
  • For our application owner it's become a huge project that consumes all of his time. Not ideal but it's working for now. Knowledge sharing the more intricate pieces can be really difficult.
WordPress is obviously a fantastic product. TerminalFour was more appropriate for our needs as determined by a team before my arrival. I think WordPress is better and cheaper but going with TerminalFour offered the opportunity to work with a smaller company to whom we mattered.
It's an extremely flexible solution. It can be a nightmare to work with if not properly planned out or fantastic if well thought out. If you have a team and an application owner with a plan it's a great option.
