I had the opportunity this week to travel to Boston (Westborough actually) to meet with the folks at Wakefly for a day of CMS training. As I mentioned in my previous posts, I’m working on a project to redesign my company’s website and purchasing and implementing a new CMS is at the very heart of the project.
For those of you unfamiliar with Wakefly, they ” …deliver positive ROI driven results through the use of online marketing, including search engine marketing and web design and development.” A key element in making all of this happen is a CMS called Kentico.
I really, really like Kentico and I’m thrilled that Wakefly is one of their premier partners. I’d like to blog in detail about why I think Kentico is such a superior CMS but for now, I’ll leave you with my Top 3 favorites features:
- The administrator has the ability to manage multiple sites from a single UI. Those site can share content and settings
- It provides you with the ability to schedule content publication
- It has a built-in and customizable workflow as well as versioning and unlimited rollback
I’m assuming that these features are not entirely unique to Kentico. In fact, I know they’re not as I’ve worked with other CMS solutions. But what makes Kentico stand out is its ease-of-use and almost “dummy-proof” navigation. Two features (or shall I say, “benefits”) that I find are hard to come by in other CMS solutions.
Like I said, I will post in more detail regarding my experiences with its implementation and how it works once our new Binary Tree website goes live. Stay tuned!
