Considerations of price and ease
When considering return on investment (ROI) with regard to long-term cost savings, support, security, flexibility, scalability, and ease-of-use for marketing communication, and ease-of-development for IT, all research pointed to the selection of a decoupled solution. After extensive evaluation, Agility was determined to be the best fit.
Agility provides the flexibility of a headless solution, along with the added benefit of a traditional CMS, which includes many built-in features for the exceptional content experience, like Page Management. This solution will provide the quickest time to market, require the least amount of assistance from IT, be the simplest for marketing communication to employ, and after all associated costs were considered, provide the greatest return on investment versus the other viable CMS candidates we evaluated.
Full control and functionality
The evaluation team at CPIE decided that Agility would give them greater flexibility than the other systems they looked at.
- They were able to easily adapt and add functionality to their site with their own team. It will make integrating with 3rd party systems like Higher Reach, Salesforce, and PeopleSoft seamless. If they were to use a hosted solution, one where the website is hosted on external servers, they would not be able to integrate Higher Reach in the same manner they are now.
- Agility’s architecture made it possible for their team to create custom code that makes that integration possible, all while keeping the website hosted internally.
- Also, having full control of the web service, the website code, and the content gives them the ability to handle current or future functionality that may be needed for the website.
Agility was the only system we reviewed where we had 100% confidence that there would be no limitations to our development.
