Sitefinity: Content Management Strength and Usability

04/27/17 at 02:29 AM | Published Under Search Engine Optimization by Andrea Quinn

Isn’t it reasonable to expect a useful, time-tested content management system (CMS) to be used by prominent businesses? If so, Sitefinity, developed by Teleric, counts Dannon, Air Asia and Gatorade among its many users, and for good reason: Sitefinity, a high-end CMS, delivers web-based content management, e-commerce and robust marketing tools.

Sitefinity CMSWhy is web-based content management desirable? Because it provides access wherever there is a browser. Tablets, laptops, mobile devices and of course desktop computers all allow for access. Another common praise from reviewers about Sitefinity is more dramatic: Sitefinity has innovated the presentation element of content management systems by making it simpler to add content and have it display well on a multitude of devices.

But Is the Sitefinity the Right Platform for You?

When comparing Sitefinity to other content management systems, one consideration is licensing fees. Sitefinity tailors their licensing toward different user bases, and it can be argued that the so-called “enterprise” user has the most to gain, given the money spent, for this content management system. We look forward to sorting through the options and prices  with you and helping you make the smartest decision.

Noteworthy Sitefinity Features

  1. Usability! Sitefinity is intuitive and easy to use.
  2. Given Sitefinity’s commitment of resources to development, updates are timely and ongoing as is support.
