InvestorCom needed an agile, cloud-enabled content management system (CMS). The company was using a custom-built solution to build websites for clients in HTML and then managing Azure servers internally, but without a full team of developers and designers, that approach was no longer viable.
After evaluating the market, InvestorCom decided Progress® Sitefinity® Cloud was the best fit. As a cloud-based platform, Sitefinity Cloud offered the InvestorCom team an intuitive, user-friendly CMS that made it easy to create and manage client websites without having to monitor servers or do any coding.
“We tested other solutions, and Sitefinity was the platform with the least friction that enabled us to achieve the look and feel we were going for with our websites,” Hopkins added. “This was critical for us, since we knew our CMS would be a tool we use daily— our clients can change their minds and request changes at any minute.”
Some specific capabilities of Sitefinity that stood out to the InvestorCom team include:
Scalability: Since InvestorCom completely manages the sites for clients, providing a worry-free experience is paramount. With an easily scalable cloud solution, InvestorCom doesn’t have to worry about limitations— Sitefinity Cloud is highly performant and available regardless of a project’s level of complexity or visibility.
Page templates and widgets: When migrating 40 client sites to a new CMS, you need to be efficient and less reliant on IT for development tasks and content changes. Page templates and custom widgets help accelerate this process, minimizing time spent creating pages and displaying certain data on the site.
Scheduling: In many instances, publicly traded companies will need information to go live when the market opens. By scheduling new content and changes, the InvestorCom team doesn’t need to pull long nights or early mornings in the office to ensure it gets published.
