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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Compare other solutions prior to going with idev. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not much. Maybe change the colors of the background, but that is a small point. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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We are solving the problem of replacing an outdated and barely functional web site with a state-of-the art web site that does and excellent job reflecting our company.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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We find idev extremely intuitive.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They need more technology for SEO and the admin is a bit slow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It did the job! It did indeed publish content and allow us to host a site. Very basic, however. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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.

What do you like best?

Probably the navigation, although that's a stretch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just use Wordpress or Joomla. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
