Why choose Kentico. Technical pros/cons

Frank Kerkhofs asked on April 7, 2016 12:04


A customer of ours would like to be convinced on why he would go for a Kentico implementation. We already have a good sales pitch on the functionalities(easy to use, online marketing automation,....). But we would like also some technical benefits to convince them.

Today they use Umbraco CMS, but this is just a side note, since this is also a .NET CMS.

Can any of you help me out here on the unique selling points for using Kentico but this from a technical approach.

Hi Frank,

Although you'll might find some answers here, it's probably easier to contact your local Kentico sales manger. For Benelux that is Bart Omlo. Your colleague Dennis (I've met him during the Benelux User Groups) probably has his contact details (or use sales@kentico.com).

For me personally I'd say there are a lot of out-of-the-box features but you also have a lot of places you can hook onto as a developer to create customizations the Kentico-way if needed.

Your selling approach should not be on the tool, it should be based on what their problems are and how you can fix them. If you decide to use Kentico as the tool to fix them, spectacular! If you use Kentico and another tool to fix them great. At least you know your tool sets and what they can and can't do.

My experience being technical, I can say, development is your simple asp.net project or website. So it really didn't take a long time for me to adapt to it whereas with some other CMS solutions I've worked with have been very difficult to adapt and code to.

As David mentioned, contact Bart or someone in sales as the will do some of that leg work for you if you're a new partner/customer.
