Percussion management and technical support has been stellar. I have appreciated their proactive approach in product enhancements.
Have a good idea of what the product is able to do beforehand. Then dream it!
I like the versatility of the product. I can work with small groups or
We were in straight HTML pages. We didn't have a specific information architecture hierarchy set-up. I would do more research on front end.
It took me a while to implement, but the work was being done by one person, and we had no information architecture in place at the time. It was built as it was implemented, I had three other areas of responsibility also at the time.

Our project was a complete overhaul of the university's website. In addition to moving to a new CMS, we implemented a new architecture, repurposed old content and developed new content, and integrated a complete new design. The team at Percussion did a superb job leading our set up of CM1 and content migration. Our 3rd-party partner (not Percussion) responsible for the design and front-end programming fell short on deliverables and missed numerous deadlines. Percussion jumped in and handled the front-end programming and did a fantastic job in helping us make up for lost time and meet our original go-live date.
We are very pleased with CM1. However, customers should understand that because of the power and flexibility of CM1, the CMS requires a higher-level of user than some products. To be clear, users do not have to be front-end developers or web designers but users do need to have above average technical competence.
We like most that we are not stuffed in a box and limited in how our site can evolve.
If we could start over, our organization would allow more time for the site launch. The extent of our project and size of our website was a tough challenge to accomplish in eight months.
Percussion did a superb job leading our deployment of CM1. The coaching sessions set us on the right track from the very beginning.

When I became the Website Coordinator, we did not have a content management system and were trying to teach Dreamweaver to stakeholders who wanted to update their websites. The President also informed me that much of the information was out of date and that Google searches often showed information that was supposedly removed from the site. I knew immediately that a CMS had to be implemented quickly to reign in rogue files as well as giving stakeholders the ability to make minor updates easily and quickly. Selecting Percussion as our CMS gave us the ability to quickly import our current site into a CMS and Percussion’s ease of use led to many contributors being added to the site. Once implemented 1,000’s of updates were made to the site and out of date files removed within months. Shortly after that new templates were easily made and the site was converted to a responsive design. We are currently reworking the site tree and refreshing all content on the site. The Percussion support and design teams have taught us much and we would not have been so nimble without their guidance. Percussion’s ease of use and talented staff have helped us succeed in creating a modern website that is responsive, SEO friendly, ADA compliant and constantly being refreshed.
Research the Amazon Bucket S3 capabilities.
Ease of use.
Should be able to simply highlight a bunch of assets in a folder and publish them.
All of the future updates in their road plan is needed and I am glad to see them. Eventually need to make the interface work on mobile devices.
Just make the CMS and website redesign at the same time.
