Kentico is a great CMS and is highly adaptable.

I have built couple of great sites for my USA based client using kentico and the client is quite happy with the performance and maintainability of the site. Using kentico i have saved great amount of my development time as great feature like user management, single sign on using Facebook ,google and many other great features are just out of the box in kentico so you are not required to code them from scratch. Also my client is also quite happy since he can edit/change the content on the fly on his own and also he can see the business performance easily from the kentico dashboard which he can use in his business strategies and planning.

Pros

1. Highly configurable and adaptable according to your business need and requirement.
2. You can use things like Macros, custom modules etc to design configurable website.
3. Kentico provides great marketing campaign inbuilt for you website which you can configure from kentico admin panel to sent promotional mails ,offers etc
4. Provides support to wide range of approach like portal engine, MVC etc.
5. You can design great website by just dragging and dropping the webparts.
6. Site editor can easily manage the content displayed on the site and can also change layouts by dragging and dropping the component.
7. Provides feature like ecommerce also.
8. Provides analytics also to your website which you can see from kentico admin panel.

Cons

The only con that i can think of is that the price is on bit higher end.

An interesting CMS option

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.

Kentico CMS is no doubt a wonderful way of managing ecommerce sites.

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.

I've been working with Kentico since version 5.

Pros

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

Cons

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.

Should Provide Chat Customer Support, normally Kentico`s support team asked to send email for this issue, when we call them.

Great CMS system with easy-to-navigate admin interface

much faster and easier than our old CRM

Pros

Easy to use/navigate/learn
simple interface
room for us to grow and use even more functionality into the future without additional cost

Cons

There's always a learning curve with any new system, and the initial work required a developer to get the site up and running to our specifications.

Great for Content Managers

Pros

From a content admin perspective Kentico is easy to use. I can easily create blog posts and manage my company's website.

Kentico could use some work with their email marketing features, they aren't very user friendly and can be confusing to work in.

Excited to see even more

Pros

It's fairly easy to use and seems to have a lot of capabilities. Excited to see what marketing automation offerings are available.

Cons

Pretty slow to get onboarded and to implement new changes. I want to be able to use it quickly and efficiently but every upgrade and/or customization seems to take a lot of time.

Kentico does the job

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.

Novice appreciates ease of use

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.

Kentico is the last CMS you will ever use!

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.

The best CMS/EMS i have ever seen.

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.

Six years using Kentico CMS and it keeps getting better

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.
