Sitecore Module Review

December 18, 2017

3.5 out of 5 stars
What do you like best?

The platform is pretty user friendly. The site structure and hierarchy is fairly easy to follow and the editing capabilities are straightforward for the most part.

What do you dislike?

It's very finicky. Some times the modules don't let you edit like you could previously and you have to discover work-arounds for some things. Also, you should be able to copy a page template and then just replace the content on the new page but when you do that, it copies over all the new content you implement and they shouldn't stay tied together like that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to figure out a lot of work-arounds so when that happens, make sure your team documents them so the other users will have that same knowledge

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

We are able to quickly build new landing pages that we can distribute to our markets in other countries for their own use.

Rigid Web Platform

Marketing & Communications Manager at The Woodruff Arts Center

1.5 out of 5 stars
What do you like best?

That you could find agencies that worked with it and also that you could find tutorials on how to update the website since it is popular.

What do you dislike?

I disliked the fact that we would update content and most of the time the formatting would get messed up. We had to learn some basic "tricks" and code in order to try to figure it out but it was very frustrating if we wanted to give some content updates to someone new who didn't know that Sitecore had issues. Also, it was rigid and we wanted to make things look a lot better but we were stuck in our template.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It was a very rigid platform and I wouldn't recommend it to organizations looking for something versatile and flexible. Marketing couldn't even do basic updates sometimes to the home page due to our restrictions.

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

It was the back end to our Woodruff Arts Center website. The benefit is that we needed a website and this fit the purpose.

4.5 out of 5 stars
What do you like best?

I like the robust nature of the tool.

The ability to customize or use out of the box.

In addition, the Customer Experience module which is able to personalize content & provide uiq1ue analytics.

With the workflow module, we segment localization to the countries, they update content & the workflow send to the webmaster for accuracy of brand and template presentation.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the separation of the marketing vs. the developer side. In order to make template adjustments one must be a developer to get the manuals. This demands a test for .net.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product, easy for marketers, however need experts to develop templates.

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

We had a brochure type of sharepoint website and converted to Sitecore. It has the marketing ability for content management, easy for localized countries, personalization, analytics for personalization, and responsive.

We are now a lead & education driving website.

What do you like best?

Thoroughly enjoy using Sitecore more so than others. We have switched from another platform to this one and so far we have liked it. We are currently going through a content migration that will be going on for a little while.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes loading time is a bit long. The screen will freeze and I will have to reload. This can be frustrating. I usually log out and give it some time and try again a bit later. Hopefully this is something that will improve over time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely would recommend.

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

Problems that are being solved include innovative marketing techniques and operations. We believed we could achieve a lot by using Sitecore and thought it was our best bet. This system is a lot more efficient.
