    Pros

    The CMS is not too difficult to learn, the website is attractive.

    Cons

    The EMS features are really built for specific industries. The conversions are build for e-commerce, which isn't what my company does, therefore every out-of-the box solution needs customization.

    It's interesting to work through a third-party partner to implement a website and work through their developers to customize, rather than working with Kentico representatives. I have never had that experience with a CMS.

    Pros

    It provides customers with all powerful, effective and comprehensive tools plus customer centric solutions in order to create stunning websites. It is one of the fantastic CMS that is frequently used for E-Commerce websites. It consists of very excellent features to handle site contents in a better way.

    Cons

    When I talk about cons I hardly find even a single. It is quite expensive software so that people can not easily buy this software. Sometimes while designing simple templates, it takes several steps so in this way it wastes time of the users. I would like to suggest one thing that is chat customer support should be available in this software.

    Easy to build custom websites. Enterprise Marketing Solution is a really powerful tool to personalize content.

    They don't have a solution ready to use for small companies. I'd like to use the Kentico in small companies but we can't meet the budget.

    Kentico is a great mid level cms. It is more cost effective and makes more sense for small and midsize businesses who want a quality cms .

    Pros

    It is more affordable than say a site core and the support is better. Tool has shown progressive improvements over last 5 years and growing community of people who support the product vs. curse it

    Cons

    Marketing features like email submission need to be enhanced and there are a few more areas in the enterprise level like multi site management that need to be improved upon. They work, just not the greatest.

    My organization switched to Kentico during its last website update. The change in managing the content and graphics is remarkably better than our previous, outdated platform. As my HTML knowledge is limited to what I've learned on the job, Kentico's set-up and navigation make it very easy for me to update content, rearrange sections and pages as needed, update form fields, add and edit visual graphics and more. I'd recommend Kentico, particularly for buyers who have to work with marketing/communication colleagues with varying levels of CMS knowledge. My only wish is that we would have tapped into Kentico's built-in analytics instead of maintaining our Google analytics.

    Pros

    The system allows for multiple logins at one time and is accessible remotely. Appreciate the clear hierarchy of content, the overall design, and ease of navigation. The History to compare and identify prior content changes is a great feature. Also, appreciate the log of system errors in identifying and tracking problem points within the site.

    Cons

    The "Help" articles are technical, as they should be, but often challenging to understand for novice users with little CMS/HTML knowledge.

    I have used Kentico for 4 years and I have used a new version each year. Kentico is the most feature-rich CMS I have ever used (I've used all the top-level or most popular CMS). Each year they upgrade to a new version and that comes with many new capabilities and usually a faster more simplified user experience. There support is second to none. I have never had question that lasted more than a few emails (about an hour), and if its a bug, they fix it in 7 days or less. I can't say enough about Kentico!

    Pros

    All the features, scale-ability and ease of use.

    Cons

    There is a learning curve.

    I am a PHP developer/graphic designer and being working on different web projects for more than 10 years. The CMS platforms that i have ever used so far includes Wordpress, magento,Drupal, Joomla,CS-cart & X-cart. After 1.5 years spent in Kentico 7,8,9, i will highly recommend Kentico to a medium large corporate or organization because of lots of out-box functions,the way to integrate with html/CSS page design(transformation) and way to build the custom code. Kentico is also supported to be the strongest CMS in handling marketing campaign and web analytics.

    I started using Kentico 3.1a and the product has improved with every new version. The Kentico team have listened to the consumer and added or modified the product so that is relatively easy to use whether you are a developer or content editor. Product support is fantastic, either fixing issues very quickly or providing a work around. The widget based layout option is great and opens up so many page layout options for Editors without needing to do any coding. The cost of the product can be a bit daunting for small business but the product does deliver in functionality. Would I recommend Kentico, short answer, yes.

    I have been using Kentico CMS since version 3 (currently in version 9). I've seen the Kentico CMS grow into an incredibly feature-rich platform. Advances made with their EMS (allowing for website and email automation) continue to raise the bar. For my team, each new challenge that is set for them is one that is easily met through Kentico's features or their ability to customise something that plugs in nicely. For the single website operator, Kentico is not the most cost-friendly offering. But for larger organisations that have a requirement for several websites ... the unlimited sites licenses become very cost effective.

    Pros

    Feature set continues to improve with every upgrade (and the upgrades are regular).

    Cons

    Pricing can be very harsh.
