"Episerver, a complete offering for digital transformation"

What do you like best?

Episerver is a complete offering, and their solution enables all aspects of digital transformation for a client. I appreciate the versatility in the product suite, which makes it appropriate for most business segments. The platform provides solutions for marketing automation, campaign management, digital commerce and content management just to mention a few. The fact that you can choose whether you want to run solutions in the cloud or on-premise makes the offering even more compelling.

What do you dislike?

Episerver is a huge platform, and it is growing at a very fast pace, as a client or a vendor it is a challenge to keep up with new functionality or acquisitions to the product portfolio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you work through an experienced Agency, have a look at the partner section at www.episerver.com and ask Episerver for how long they have been implementing Episerver and how many certified developers they have. Do not look at your Episerver implementation as a pure technology project, make sure that your vendor can provide strategy, UX/design and development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The platform is the perfect match for any company wanting to be successful online. Focus is mainly on those who have a strategic view on digital and want to follow up and increase sales, lead generation, brand awareness. I think companies with a global footprint is an especially good match as the platform works very well in multiple markets.

"Episerver Commerce after 1.5 years"

What do you like best?

Good support for programming C# ASP.NET and free choice of frontend frameworks that can be used. Strong and large community. Good support both from Episerver and other developers on forum. Good integration with Episerver CMS, and increasing support of new UI for Commerce Catalog.

What do you dislike?

Pricing. IMHO Commerce UI is a "dinosaur with a kick". Old ASP.NET forms application hardly fit in year 2017. Some of the old api's can sometimes be confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read "Pro Episerver Commerce" book. Avoid using old api's and approaches as much as possible. Use new UI for catalog management in Episerver CMS as much as possible. Read blog posts and formus on world.episerver.com frequently.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a great and stable platform for implementing wide spectrum of e-commerce applications. Long time on the market. Incremental improvements. I wouldn't trade it for any other similar platform at time being.

"Always finding new ways to use Episerver "

What do you like best?

Ease of use and scalability. We add a tremendous amount of content to our site because it is much faster than our previous CMS. Users / Page Views / Time on Site continue to increase each year. Personalization is a powerful feature and we are just starting to scratch the surface of Episerver's capabilities.

What do you dislike?

We do not dislike anything about Episerver. When there is a problem, Episerver or our implementer are there to solve it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Explore the personalization capabilities with Episerver. We have a lot of fun creating and tracking our content and how it is performing with each group.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

eCommerce, multi-language/multi-country. Integration with Marketo has been crucial to our marketing strategy in 2016.

What E-Commerce Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Episerver, A single content and commerce platform for the upper mid market"

What do you like best?

Out of the box, Episerver offers features that other platforms don't offer by default such as unlimited CMS editors, plug and play e-commerce, content targeting, on-page editing, unification of content and commerce, and more.

What do you dislike?

The lack of a multi-tier content staging feature which controls deployment for content, assets, and code. This would be a really great feature to have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Episerver is not like other CMS platforms which I have experienced and I know a lot of them. They have been extremely thoughtful about how the system interacts with the editors and how that impacts the end users. If you haven't seen a demo of this software, I'd highly recommend it..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Content editing and speed to market was a big problem for us. Now with Episerver, our marketing team can see the what their content will look like realtime and also what it will look under different circumstances e.g. mobile, personas, etc. This has allow us to create a vast amount of additional content in substantially less time.

"Really great and stable product for both editors and developers!"

What do you like best?

I really like that it's a stable CMS that is easy to use for editors and easy and fun to develop for developers. It's very easy to customize anything you would like for a new sites and you can use the latest frameworks and technologies like Azure, .NET MVC etc which increase productivity. I've been developing EPiServer sites for 10 years+ and also tried a lot of other CMSs and I can honestly say that this is the best. Other CMSs maybe have a few more functions on the paper but does a crappy job on the core CMS parts. EPiServer CMS has focused on what you actually need as developer and editor and refined that to near perfection. It's easy to build a pretty nice site with EPiServer even for a junior developer and a pretty unskilled editor. But it's also possible to create a large enterprise site hosted in the cloud for 10 coutries. I like it!

What do you dislike?

Community part. It wasn't EPiServer who built it to their defence. Skip this addon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Buy it, use it!

Really great enterprise search solution with EPiServer Find btw.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EPiServer is a great tool whether you use it to build a fancy site to sell porsches like www.porsche.se or build a government site like www.regeringen.se. It's also a great tool for exposting internal systems like customer portals since it is easy to integrate vs basically any system using standard methods in .NET. The EPiServer Find enterprise search solution makes it easy to create a user friendly search solution for any type of information from any system.

It's catching up with more robust ecommerce solutions, but you can't expect the same level of integrations that other platforms have.

Developers can create the functionality your business needs without fighting against the CMS, and actually utilizing all the features that it provides. The only true .NET MVC enterprise platform.

What do you dislike?

Some of way the application works with the database limits options for deploying new code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Efficiency and re-usability are the two largest drivers behind our implementation.

"Great support"

What do you like best?

The support from the team to encourage the optimal use of the platform.

It's not clear that the partners are fully trained on capabilities and we have a lot of "bespoke" rather than out the box solutions.

We are delivering the marketing assets to represent our brand rather than simply transactional. It is helping engage consumers.
