What do you like best?

TERMINALFOUR is a web-based application and is very useful for colleges and universities in managing their current status and promoting the institution for further admissions. This tool is a good planner in making strong strategies to empower the organization with the best policies. The users can capture the benefits of making solid plans and ideas for implementation. The software is very beneficial in allocating the organization with well-reputed institutes. It comprehends all details and guide the visitors to come again for further process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This application compares the organization and it’s very important to maintain the web page with secured hands. Otherwise, the information can be skipped and it can create problems for the organization. The internet should be of good quality to promote this tool and the users should be aware of everything for installation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

TERMINALFOUR is an excellent application for all types of educational institutions. It doesn’t help to promote our page on social media, but, also provides solid strategies to rank the page on Google. So, our website is referring to our whole organization and everyone can see the page with a single click. The management has not done anything except to install this application in the system and the remaining work is making this tool. So, I must say this software is running a campaign on social forums with great responsibility. Our institution is getting more admissions and we can guide everyone without any trouble.

What do you like best?

Friendly interface and visible directory helps keep everything in view. The analytics screen is very descriptive , it tells you what's up in an instant and transitioning is generally smooth. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit expensive, It doesn't offer something to set it apart from the rest. Like a key feature which no one else has. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Everything is there, just gotta find it on the screen without worrying. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It is helping us engage more with our students digitally but we cannot tell if its actually effective because digital traffic isn't necessarily transforming into physical traffic. So we feel it should do more. It is helping us develop an online community for our students and we've been more successful in that ever since terminal four. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a content strategist, I've found it easy to manage and update content with the Terminal Four content management system. I learned the CMS during a one-day training and have found the Knowledge Base helpful for any questions that have come up since training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm very happy with Terminal Four and only have small quibbles with the CMS. For example, while the company says that editors should be able to copy and paste content from Microsoft Word without retaining formatting, we have found that formatting sometimes stays with the text, which causes issues with how the content displays. Our work-around is to first paste copy into the Notepad app (which strips all formatting and leaves only plain text) and then copy and paste into Terminal Four. It's an extra step but not a big deal. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We're creating a consistent look and feel for all content on our organization's website. The CMS has helped us create a much cleaner, more up-to-date look for the site. This is especially important during the pandemic, when our customers cannot visit our organization in person and are more likely to turn to the website for information and answers.

What do you like best?

TerminalFour is relatively straightforward and simple to use. I would consider myself a "light" user of the product (i.e. staff reporting to me have been the main ones updating and publishing content), yet I find it relatively easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally I run across something that is not as intuitive as one might think. I'm a user at a department level, and our primary administrators in MarComm/ITS provide training for university staff. There are some tips and workarounds I remember learning in training that I never would have figured out on my own. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For us, it has been a good solution for a complex institution with many different departments and users/administrative staff using the system. I am not sure if it is more complex a tool than necessary for a very small business - but worth considering if that may be the case. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

As a university, it allows MarComm/ITS staff to assign administrative privileges at the department level and have many users in T4 whom are able to update their respective department pages within approved templates.There are checkpoints in place to ensure only approved content is published.

What do you like best?

What I really like best of TERMINALFOUR is that it has almost everything to be the best web content management tool out there. And something that I like the best from it is its easy-to-use interface, you can search, track and find everything in just one place. Also, media library and preview function makes it pretty reliable. Also web management tool has an out-of-the-box ability of doing things without causing issues while jobs are done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This software is not perfect at all and has issues like every other solution out there and I have to say that one issue that bothers me is that RSS feeds sometimes are clumsy or stuck in time, my team and I couldn't find the reason yet, we've reached with technical support and they will help us soon. So far, this software doesn't have anything else that encourages me to dislike TERMINALFOUR or any of its features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommended TERMINALFOUR for those who are encouraging to achieve and master how this tool work and cooperates with its functions across the workflow and the GUI interface alongside with users and clients as well. Also, taking advantage of training sessions is pretty important if you want to take all the best that this solution actually offers to its users and third-party clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

TERMINALFOUR has helped us a lot with our business problems so far, thanks to this software we were able to get into web editing, managing, overseeing and maintaining issues that were solved in a very quickly way. Clients and third-party users are able to see how websites are done and finished without losing anything from their sight. Also they would see data and metrics progress in order to improve client-provider engaging methods. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The interface is makes web design simple, but you can still go into the HTML code if you choose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We had several training sessions for this and, although it is very simple to use compared to strictly writing in HTML, not all tasks and fixes are intuitive and we had to rely on our T4 trainer to help with much of this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely take advantage of the training sessions and ask as many questions as possible. Our rep was fantastic with helping, but we were constantly working on the site and coming up with problems for them to help us work through Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Web design for our department website. The cataloging of old articles posted is great, but it did take some time to work this out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I've used T4 (TERMINALFOUR) for just over 4 years and there are many aspects of it I love. The modular system of 'Page layouts' (templates) and 'content types' (user input areas) allows for complete control over how your webpages are built and managed.

The user management aspect of the system is also very good, with groups and individual users it makes organising user access extremely easy.

The T4 'Extranet', or community help, has been an invaluable training resource. The webpages allow us to teach new users how to easily use the system with very little input from our team needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When bugs are discovered and T4 has been notified, unless its completely site critical their response can be delayed and take rather a long time get resolved.

Due to T4 being non-responsive, it is almost unusable on mobile devices.

Although the T4 'Extranet' system holds some very useful infromation, it can be rather hard to find if you're new to the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Brilliant all round content management system. Specialises in hosting large scale websites, as its modular layout and use of 'Page layouts' (templates) caters for the quick and easy implantation of new pages. If you have a small website with fewer than a hundred pages, this may not be for you. If you have a site with thousands this may be just what you're looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We can easily manage and control all of the users who have access to edit our University webpages. Allowing us to make sure only users that are trained to an adequate level can edit our content.

The modular system of T4 allows us to have complete control over our website, with no limitations whatsoever to what design features and functionality we want.

Hosts our entire University website (1000's of pages) and hundreds of users with ease, while we, the administrators, can still easily keep control over what goes on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
