6 reasons to choose Enonic as your hybrid CMS

Morten Eriksen on

There are a ton of reasons why you should replace your old content management system with a CMS from Enonic. Here are the best.

Your business deserves better than a dusty old CMS that has neither the flexibility nor the scalability to deliver the type of digital experience that your customers are increasingly learning to expect.

There are many reasons why you should replace your old content management system with a CMS from Enonic. Here is the top list.

1. Flexible and scalable

‘Future proof’ is the name of the game when it comes to a CMS that will allow your digital experiences to sing for years to come. And future-proof means flexibility and scalability for both developers and content editors alike.

Enonic supports the agile and flexible, continuous roll-out of changes to make sure your digital projects remain agile, and scales to handle anything you might throw at it.

2. Intuitive and effective content management

Enonic’s Content Studio makes editing and publishing content easier than it’s ever been. Take the headache out of content management with a responsive system that includes simple permission editing, allows you to track changes, and lets you quickly publish everything from a complete site to specific content items.

Enonic also enhances your productivity with an admin interface that supports large, small, and mobile screens (for on-the-go editing). Plus, with a powerful repository navigator you can search through all of your content in the blink of an eye. There’s even a split screen mode so you can work on the details and see the final result in a live preview. Seriously, we’ve thought of everything.

3. Image handling

Managing and re-using images across your content can easily turn into a major bottleneck, slowing things down and causing unnecessary aggravation. It should be easy, but most systems will force you to do edits in other image applications and you might end up having several variants of the same image in your CMS.

Enonic supports intuitive image handling, with editors handling zoom, pan, focal point and metadata all in one place. And no more unnecessary image duplication.

4. Responsive page editor

Your business is unique, and your pages and content should reflect that. Enonic allows you to tailor every single page and piece of content to your exact needs and specifications. Need to create a responsive landing page on the fly? We’ve got you covered. Have to customise and configure your own page templates? Check. Or perhaps you want to edit rich text directly on the page?

Whatever it is you need to achieve, our Content Studio can make it happen. Plus, using Enonic’s split screen functionality, you can work with your content and page layout at the same time to get instant previews of your changes.

5. Excellent customer service

Enonic will never leave you high and dry. Got a question? You can reach us by phone, email and web chat anytime. We also know how powerful a passionate community can be, so we provide a Slack community and a forum.

And it doesn’t stop there. Our network of solution partners can help you build and enhance your digital experiences by delivering complete projects and resources.

6. Headless

Last, but not least, Enonic offers headless CMS capabilities. Headless basically means that you can re-use your content across applications and websites, without it being bound to a specific format.

Our headless CMS is a content hub—it is one place to manage content across systems, giving you full controll and making it easy to re-use content on any platform, whether it be mobile, desktop, wearables, snippets, IoT, or what have you.

Also, developers get what they need with Enonic's headless CMS. We provide a powerful API through GraphQL—meaning your developers get full flexibility and freedom to build the solution they (and preferrably you) want.

And best of all, it doesn't have to be one way or the other with Enonic. If you want a traditional CMS and headless capabilities, Enonic's got you covered with our hybrid CMS approach.
