The other day, I was in a team meeting witSitefinity CMS- The Clear Choiceh a web development agency from Maryland who has been developing on Sitefinity with increasing frequency. I was interested to hear what their experience was with their clients during the CMS selection process. They don’t work exclusively with Sitefinity, but they have been finding that our features, price point, usability, and extensibility are leading them to recommend us more and more over our competition. 

When I asked why, their answer was simple: they give clients demonstrations of CMS’s under consideration, describe the relative features and capabilities, and clients are virtually sold on Sitefinity. The agency was continually amazed how often prospective clients they’re bidding for have never seen demonstrations of the CMS’s under consideration. Side by side, Sitefinity is winning the day.

With Sitefinity 5.4 due out this week, it made me wonder, what is your process for picking a CMS with your clients? Do you show them each one side-by-side, or do they accept your recommendation sight-unseen? Have you found one method yields better long-term success? Love to hear your thoughts. Cheers!

BTW: What is the latest version of Sitefinity that you’ve tried? We’ve made many improvements lately, with major performance enhancements (2-3 times) included in 5.4. Click here for a demo if you’re intrigued. Click here for What's Inside 5.4.
