"Flexibilty to suit any need. Also re-usability if you program your custom items correctly."

What do you like best?

The part I like the most about Sitefinity is the ability to make it my own. Almost everything can be customized to meet business requirements. From graphics and templates to widgets and form submissions. There is a consistent look and feel that is unique to us while correct information appears only where it is expected.

What do you dislike?

The part I found challenging was trying to setup a new app and the online documentation hadn't been updated.

However, I contacted support and they got back to me quickly with the correct instructions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know what you want before you get started. Sitefinity can do it, but you need to have a clear direction and stick with a single unified plan otherwise it could take years to implement.

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

The business problems revolve around reaching prospective students and getting them to engage in the community we have built. Sitefinity has given us a platform to announce the new exciting things that make our school so great.

Can be hard to implement third-party customizations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you choose a good vendor that can help with your day-to-day support should you need it.

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

It is helping us immensely with crafting personas and delivering a customized user experience. It is also giving us the opportunity to provide a more dynamic web presence.

"Sitefinity CMS review"

What do you like best?

.NET base CMS with many features out of the box. Intuitive interface and expandable with a developer team.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is going up since progress did the acquisition. On the plus side the support team us much more responsive and features are getting added and fixed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good product but you need a team of developers to customize it to your needs. Out of the box there are multiple features available and very useful. You definitely need a UI developer to design your template. Unfortunately, we didn't find any useful template on the sitefinity marketplace. Our developers find their documentation informative but not always up to date to the latest version and their support are very responsive. The type of SLA for the support response, depends on the support package/license you have.

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

We use it for our intranet to manage and host our internal operations and documentation.

"One of the most 'User Friendly' Content Management System"

What do you like best?

We have been using Sitefinity for more than 8 years now and find it one of the most user friend CMS to manage the website, if implemented correctly. It provides many out of the box widget like News, Events, Cards, Rich text editor, Image Gallery which can be easily drag drop on the page and within minute you can create a new page using any existing template. Also, for developer, it provides the flexibility to build custom modules and utilities API which can be consume by any frontend medium (mobile app, website).

What do you dislike?

Not easy to upgrade to latest version, if by mistake one deploy the latest version DLL, it change the database and you cannot rollback to old version. The Export/Import feature is not advance enough and randomly breaks. By default Sitefinity store some of the changes like labels & Message, Search Index on ‘File System’ which cause issue when you have a Load Balance environment, there you have to manually sync the file on all environment which is not ideal. Also, there is lack of native Analytics support, it integrate with Google Analytics which means dependency on 3rd party system when creating reports.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The way implementation is done is the key when using any CMS, same goes with Sitefinity CMS, if the content is properly structure in backend, then it would be very easy to manage the website, else, if there are a lot of rich feature, it would require complex content architecture, thus require more time to manage content. Also, try to use the default widget provided by Sitefinity wherever possible, which would allow you to take full advantage of Sitefinity DataAccess, Advance Cache, thus improving the overall website performance. Also, when using Sitefinity personalization, make sure you first have the content strategy.

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

Personalization, one of the key feature for any new website. Sitefinity allow simple but effective mechanism to make any page or content within the page personalized. We are using this feature for some of our Banking websites which have a lot of content and pages. There we need to target user based on their behavior, location, time etc. Here Sitefinity plays an important role to achieve our target audience.

Content and Website hosting with lots of features but very expensive

Pros: We switched to Sitefinity for our website hosting. The transition was seamless and it offers a lot of features including ecommerce and check-out purchasing. Easy to edit some web pages and a nice design template. Our website looks very modern and slick.

Cons: The price is the main issue. We ended up not using many of the features we thought we needed for Sitefinity so the price wasn't worth it for us. But overall, a very expensive solution compared to WordPress. Their page builders aren't as easy as wordpress. Their content block features make it difficult for non-web developers to build webpages.
