What do you like best?

Some backend features are cool, great backend search tool and methods of combining assets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not much of an online comminity for help and a lot of customizations are very tricky. Can be pretty cumbersome. Not as easy to use or troubleshoot as say, Drupal. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It would be easier to use a more universal CMS such as Drupal. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This CMS (or at the least the version my company uses) is in a file structure and it's fairly easy to organize content within the system (related content within folders by subject area). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I like about the CMS is also what I don't like --- in this organization, you cannot export URLs and all items are assigned a CMS ID. It's also difficult to delete content from the structure and the system is clunky and antiquated. Withdrawing content isn't the easiest and previewing your new or updated content is not ideal either. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you have governance set up from the very beginning of your project to ensure the CMS doesn't quickly become and overwhelming archive of content. It would also be advisable to have limited roles in the CMS so that there aren't too many contributors in the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

CoreMedia is the CMS that we use for our main website, so it has allowed us to have a web presence which helps us to meet many of our business goals. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

the flexibility of the tool is great. I like that in most cases it's easy enough to be used by the content writer and does not necessarily require a web author to be able to use Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

the same flexibility that I like is also one of the things I dislike about it. In a highly matrixed organization with distributed authorship it is difficult to lock down the layouts and templates and only allow for certain components to be on pages (or at least our installation of it is) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

the software is great and the company is wonderful to work with. I would suggest getting recommendations on implementation partners and talking with customers that used those implementation partners. They are the biggest struggle in dealing with the software Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We are a week from going live with our new site using CoreMedia and it is leaps and bounds above the SharePoint Publishing solution we were using previously. We have been able to have a more flexible web authoring environment and it will allow for better experience once we start translating sites. The set up seems to be the most difficult, I think once we get live and are in maintenance mode the ability to share content across the site using collections and teasers will be a huge time savings.

What do you like best?

It is scalable for any size of association and site needs. It is an exceptionally stable CMS. It works with various sorts of working frameworks, for example, Windows and UNIX (Linux and solaris). Underlying php structure gives sublime extensibility and can be used to create hand crafted answers for big business level customers, partition of substance and configuration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Due to CoreMedia's energy, there is a great deal to oversee. Software introductions are by and large more troublesome than they ought to be. There are traps to get the server-side reserve to invigorate, yet the documentation is inadequate around there, which can prompt a lot of dissatisfaction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

This tool offered an all effectively united multi-site and multi-lingual establishment, cooperating like nothing else. The execution was overflowing with issues since we were attempting to coordinate it with a considerable measure of interior frameworks and the CoreMedia bolster foundation offered a lot of assistance. It permitted growing totally committed expansion based applications and arrangements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

CoreMedia is flexible and quick and as a content application it is useful for marketing chunks in developed sites. The best part of this application is easy and smooth standardization of content UI-its look and feel. It is easy to maintain permissions with this application.

It is great for handing large websites with multiple content pages and sub-sites under it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is complex to understand and not easy to learn by users or the editors that are not using the full wesite on daily basis. Its user interface is not easy to remember and navigation is also a bit complex.

It sometimes does not provide reliable translation and is confusing sometimes in terms of literal translation to be understood by end user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a good application for handling applications which are large and are handled by developers for content and not by editors. This is developed keeping developer in mind and is not easy to understood by content writers in the case. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We provide services for marketing and e-commerce solutions to users. This application is helpful as we have large website to maintain and editor or developers works on large content editing and handling. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
