"Lots of options and storage, but not very user friendly"

What do you like best?

I really like the speed of the upload process for Idev CMS and also the lack of downtime/crashes they have as a website. The content library is easy to use and the CMS is fairly easy to navigate through.

What do you dislike?

The system does not take changes as fast as it should, and if someone else is on the editing page it will become very difficult to publish what you want to. It also is not user friendly for those who do not have a strong knowledge of web design/html/css. The turnaround for the ticketing system time is also ungodly slow. I would not recommend this to a small company either since American Eagle has much larger clients that they deal with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare other solutions prior to going with idev.

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

Able to change some things without contacting American Eagle is nice. It is also nice to have the ability to add different admins and give them different roles.

"iDEV CMS for our web site"

What do you like best?

Easy to use and intuitive. Very short learning curve, and that comes from a non-IT guy.

I have used / tried to use a number of different CMS systems and by far the CMS AmericanEagle.com offers is the easiest and most effective system I have found. Next to their people, their CMS is the greatest asset for our web site.

After using the AmericanEagle.com CMS I dont want to use any other system.

What do you dislike?

Not much. Maybe change the colors of the background, but that is a small point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look closely at what AmericanEagle.com offers and compare it to other software platforms. You will find what I did; AmericanEagle.com has a much better product and they keep re-investing in the product to make it better.

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

We are solving the problem of replacing an outdated and barely functional web site with a state-of-the art web site that does and excellent job reflecting our company.

The benefits include greater web traffic and a much better user friendly experience. The greater traffic has resulted in stronger sales revenue.

What Web Content Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Feature rich flexible platform with plenty of standard features"

What do you like best?

This is a full featured platform that is simple to learn and easy to manage. The integration with Hawk Search and idev Broadcast email is convenient and proves to be a powerful marketing tool. The ability to quickly create or edit content saves us time and money. Integration with our external inventory system gives our customer a real time window into product availability.

What do you dislike?

The WYSIWYG content plugin could be a bit more user friendly however with a little practice and some basic HTML code knowledge our content team has it down pat.

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

We needed to streamline content management and provide a simple to use ecommerce platform that didn't need an on site IT staff to maintain. We were able to grow our business without adding content management and website maintenance staff.

"Excellent "

What do you like best?

We find idev extremely intuitive.

My company tried so many CMS systems before moving over to American Eagle and so glad we switched. The real asset is the customer service support. My group can be difficult to train but AE had us up and running in record time.

What do you dislike?

Honestly we had so many problems with other systems we having nothing to complain about with idev.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your looking for an easy to use CMS with high quality support it is an easy decision.

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

We need to simplify the ordering process for our customers. Our business is based on customization and American Eagle worked very closely with us to build a complete eCommerce experience that was attractive and extremely user friendly.

"My Experience: Quality, user-friendly product that allows great flexibility"

What do you like best?

americaneagle.com's idev platform offers great flexibility. it is an out of the box solution so you aren't bound to countless customization changes but you have the flexibility where you need and want it. i have used idev for several years and appreciate the upgrades that americaneagle.com provides. evolution is constant and you want a solution that can evolve as you need it. better than the tech, and it is solid and proven, the company behind it all is committed to providing the best solutions to meet your needs.

What do you dislike?

i'm in the process of upgrading to the newest version of the idev platform and i guess my gripe is that i didn't have to go through my own red tape to get the new system in place. as is the case with any technology, i want the newest thing now. waiting a couple of months, given the size and scope of what we are doing, isn't bad but wouldn't it be great if i could get it today?

Recommendations to others considering the product

idev is worth your time to compare and i believe after your due diligence that you will be impressed with the features, flexibility and support. i've personally used idev for several years and i am in the process of bringing over our entire web platform of 40+ sites to gain the benefits of the new features.

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

the primary objective was to bring our digital solutions to a more modern and relevant reality. after our man hub site was completed we branched out to create a platform of connected sites to better leverage the technology across the association. this was a huge win for the association with increased member benefits and a lift in the professionalization of the association's digital properties. the additional benefits have been increased annual growth in visits/pages/time and sponsor interest. these are great gains regardless of the industry.

"Robust CMS for new or power users"

What do you like best?

The idev CMS provides a powerful platform for beginning or advanced site managers. It also allows for easy content sign-off. It is flexible enough to create custom content and is one of the few CMS I have seen that allows robust form/database integration. The tools provided make it easy to edit almost any part of your website and to manage contests. polls and lists.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike. All of the features that I would expect are present as well as a few unexpected features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Functional and powerful, idev provides all of the tools necessary to manage our site and out lists.

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

We are a B2C event company and we need to make sure that the public is aware of our event. At the same time we are selling corporate sponsorships and need to have a professional appearance.

"Complete in functionalities and strong in ecommerce"

What do you like best?

AE programmers can do what ever you ask them to do, they make all customizations possible. The design and usability is awesome. The speed of the site is OK. The CMS is strong and reliable. AE emplopyees are friendly and are always willing to help you sell more.

What do you dislike?

They need more technology for SEO and the admin is a bit slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good option.......they have it all in the site to help you sell more and very friendly people. You will not be a number on their client list, it will be a personal relationship with the account manager.

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

Revenue geneeration is my main focus. The site is perfect since it has all the tools to build a well functioning and good usability home page, product listing pages, product detail pages, shopping cart and checkout.

Organizing web pages for events. Its a great central location to pool everything together.

"Idev review"

What do you like best?

The history-restore feature is actually quite useful when dealing with large scale content.

What do you dislike?

lack of widgets

lack of customization

lack of extensions or plug-ins

can't even ftp into own server

jquery or javascript not allowed on content pages

navigation module is poorly designed

too many modules and widgets that didn't actually do anything

lack of attentiveness to UX on the backend

Recommendations to others considering the product

Horrible all in all. Complete lack of customizations, and when you pay for them they do not follow instructions or follow through with objectives.

E-commerce is horrid

not responsive or mobile out of the box

costs more money than its worth

too expensive for what you get

not even comparable to wordpress

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

"OK platform; would not recommend for large-scale CMS needs"

What do you like best?

It did the job! It did indeed publish content and allow us to host a site. Very basic, however.

What do you dislike?

Lack of customization; we were very limited to what we could do, and when it came time to redesign our site and make it more nimble, AE did not have any of the capabilities needed (like separate links for articles on a sub-section of our website so we could share them on social media).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a very basic CMS, this will work. But if you want something more customizable that has a vast bank of widgets and the like, you can't use AE. Wordpress worked great for us and the user experience was incredible. Unfortunately, I do not recommend AE.

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

We used AE solely for content; it was used for a online industry newsletter, so our needs were fairly basic. We did not have any e-commerce needs, etc. The benefits were not great enough to stay with the CMS tool; we switched to Wordpress when we re-designed and re-launched our site.

"Frustrating and Time Consuming "

What do you like best?

Probably the navigation, although that's a stretch.

What do you dislike?

The system doesn't allow you to do much with creativity. Photos, charts, slideshows are practically non-existent, and different fonts are beyond the question. It is not SEO friendly and overall needs a lot of improvement in order to stand out in a crowded CMS space. The layout is very difficult to update as well. Did I mention it is not free either?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just use Wordpress or Joomla.

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

The reason for using AE was because our Company's online newsletter was on it so we were forced to used it. Even though we did manage to put a daily newsletter on AE, we would get continuously frustrated of how limited its capabilities are.

The CMS was very user friendly and easy to learn. Helpful SEO tools as well.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to mention, overall the CMS does everything we need with no issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We run a non-profit volunteer based organization, so ease of use was key for us. This platform met all of our requirements and is very simple to use.

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

Needed an easy to use CMS that had good SEO exposure. We also needed a system that was easy to support and could style content easily.
