What do you like best?

The support from Solodev is outstanding! Their team of dedicated professionals is highly responsive to emails and prompt to resolve issues. They listen to concerns and needs. I'm especially appreciative of their willingness to show corrective steps taken - so you can learn as you go along. They treat all levels of CMS knowledge with kindness, patience and respect. They also bring helpful ideas and solutions to the table. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Navigation and layout isn't always intuitive and the site is not as user-friendly as WordPress. Solodev recently made upgrades - some good, some bad: Being able to drop and drag photos for uploading is a notable improvement as is the updated layout. Other features I frequently used and relied on were removed, for example the button for embedding a YouTube video - it now requires the video to be added through Source. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I cannot say enough about the benefit of having Team Solodev support! I am confident that they will handle an issue and follow-up with me without my having to ask for a status update. This is a big time saver and allows me to focus on other work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I loved the layout of the website. I also thought the one-on-one training of the CMS was helpful. The staff got back to our concerns quickly. They are timely with responses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I felt that we did not receive the best customer service for the price that we paid. I also feel that there were issues with the CMS that made the back-end difficult to edit. While I loved the overall website design, I don't know if it was worth having to work-around the difficulties of the CMS. I felt like much custom coding was needed for simple functions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would agree that Solodev is timely with their projects. I have enjoyed working with members of their team. They have done a good job at training us how to use their CMS including bringing us to their corporate headquarters to learn the software. Sometimes their CMS feels clunky and I have trouble finding things, so it might not be good for beginners. It takes time to learn but its unique features make it worth it. I hope that eventually, they will fix bugs that are in their system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Problems mostly deal with the CMS back-end. I do not like how you are unable to custom change URL. Solodev did not have the most intuitive back-end, because my co-worker and I had to find workarounds to change small things. We also would have trouble finding the location of files, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Solodev provides almost everything we need to run our website content strategy. It’s intuitive, easy to use, and we can train people on the platform really quickly. I love that my team can make updates without touching code or breaking things. We’re also able to manage users really effectively and review drafts before publishing. Finally, their service is awesome! I wasn’t expecting to get the kind of dedicated support that helps us solve problems quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The online documentation is pretty solid but there are few articles that could use additional guidance. They have a built-in library of managers for adding features like a blog, but it helps to have a developer handy if you want to style things a specific way. Some integrations are easier than others, and a few require custom help. Good news is they offer support to do more advanced API work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you’re looking for a platform that solves a lot of the problems and headaches of WordPress, then this is the closest you can get. Nothing is perfect, but if something breaks, you’re not alone in the woods. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I recently had to cancel a major event that was promoted on our website. I needed to rapidly update the content but my hands were full. Not only did Solodev’s support team take it on, but they made several recommendations to help improve the mobile experience. For me, the service is the key. Their people go the extra mile, so I’m really investing in peace of mind. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

i like that i can communicate through email with them. whenever i have an issue or question they are always there and will always get back to me and not very many companies do that. we were also able to go to solodev offices and get a small training frmo them on how to upload recipes the right way and what to do and what not to do when it comes to pictures. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

they sometimes take too long, i feel like noone on their team speaks spanish and at least a couple people should. another thing that is sometimes frustrating is that when something is requested such like a change or improvement, the turnaround time is a little long. the turnaround time could be a little faster that way we can all make changes qicker in the office Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think that Solodev is going in the right direction. it is hard to communicate and have our spanish site be perfect beause when we implement thing i believe that a spanish speaker should review it on their end Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

right now we are working on getting the recipe area fixed and making sure all the recipes are updated to the new template. this means going over all of the recipes in english and in spanish and making sure everyone on the teams agrees. also the pictures need to be of high quality so that the website is up to date Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

With Solodev, I feel like our marketing team is equipped to handle multiple assets at once. I love the CMS’s integration with Salesforce especially. It saves me considerable effort by streamlining the information between platforms.

On top of the Salesforce integration, the ability to easily manage multiple sites in one interface and easily deploy updates across our entire ecosystem is second to none. This is one of the best multi-site management tools I’ve ever come across.

Finally, whenever I’ve had an issue arise with the CMS, the Solodev support team has been nothing but helpful and courteous while they explained the situation to me. They know my role and they understand my team’s goals. It’s significantly more personable than other platforms we’ve used in the past. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Can’t think of anything in particular that I don’t like. With any new piece of software, there’s a learning element. The interface itself isn’t exactly the prettiest, but design comes second to functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Solodev may not have the name recognition that other CMS players have, but they more than make up for it with their functionality and ability to create custom solutions. If you need a content platform that is secure, stable and flexible, then it's worth taking a closer look at. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It really is made with marketers in mind, but it would give a development team enough room to make changes as they saw fit too. And with so many options for third-party integration, Solodev seemed like the perfect fit for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Solodev really lets us consolidate and manage our content marketing and digital strategies into one intuitive platform. It also allows us to design websites and experiences like real designers. There are no pre-baked themes or templates that force us to fit inside “the box” and design around the limitations. We can take the user experience wherever we want, and that’s one of the reasons why it works so well for us.

One of the biggest advantages of Solodev is the integration with our martech apps, including Salesforce and Pardot, which are essential to our marketing and sales programs. I like how we can set permissions, so a lower level a user doesn’t accidently break our website when updates are made. I have found this to be problematic with other platforms.

The service is probably the other winner for me. When I have questions, I have someone responding quickly and they’re usually familiar with my project - it’s not just a call center. Their development staff helped create a few custom portals to meet our needs that we had trouble with on another CMS. I also like how secure Solodev’s platform is compared to other popular open-source websites I’ve used in the past with previous companies.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The CMS required a bit of a learning curve, but once that was overcome, now using it feels like second-nature. I don’t have much of a technical background, but the Solodev development team answered whatever questions I had. I feel really comfortable using it now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It’s an excellent solution for any marketing team needing greater control over their website. It’s not like those free, DIY solutions that ultimately run up costs in hidden development fees and don't handle larger business needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Solodev helps our team automate so many elements of our website. We have the power to “schedule it, and forget it” when it comes to certain content elements. It consolidates everything we once had spread across three or four online channels into one streamlined hub. We also needed something very customizable. As an agency we didn’t want generic websites and cookie cutter pages - and Solodev really delivered on that flexibility.

What do you like best?

I am by no means a technical person. I have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, and I was initially nervous when I found out we were using a new CMS. However, as a content creator, I find the Solodev platform relatively easy to understand. The interface makes sense, and I like its user permissioning. I’m confident that people who don’t need to touch our content can’t touch our content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
