Blueberry‌CMS vs Adobe Business Catalyst

As Adobe Business Catalyst partners who actually developed the BlueberryCMS website platform, we are uniquely qualified for this comparison. First of all, we loved Adobe Business Catalyst, let’s just make that real clear to everyone. Even though we kept waiting for major improvements, we believed Adobe BC was once, the best product on the market. It helped us scale our website production level to a very healthy place. Then, one day in 2018, Adobe announced End of Life for Business Catalyst. The platform will disappear on March 26, 2021. Let’s begin by making a list of all the great features Adobe Business Catalyst had on their platform.

  • Web Apps
  • Customer Database (CRM)
  • Reports & Analytics
  • Hosting & Email
  • Dashboard
  • Site Manager (CMS)
  • Blog
  • Events
  • Ecommerce
  • E-Mail Marketing
  • Web Forms
  • Secure Zones

Updates and improvements

The fact that Adobe Business Catalyst had all of these features under the hood really appealed to us because we were able to help all of our clients no matter what their business goals entailed which was a major part of our expressed mission at Sprout Creatives. We never had to deal with technical server updates, plug-ins or website crashes because the security of Business Catalyst was superb. We explained to our clients they were investing in an appreciating asset. This was true until Adobe stopped adding new features. Luckily, the Adobe Business Catalyst community stepped up to the plate and began developing applications where Adobe simply dropped the ball. Now, we want to take the ball into the end zone with BlueberryCMS. As you can imagine, with football season back in full swing, we’re a little excited.

Times have changed and BlueberryCMS is a big improvement for Adobe Business Catalyst at a much better price point. BlueberryCMS has more than double the features for less of a monthly investment. You’ll never have to worry about technical updates, external plug-ins or necessary external applications with BlueberryCMS. We promise to constantly create new features and application programming interfaces (API) to help our web designers and marketing agencies. We spent countless hours listening to what the Adobe Business Catalyst partner community wanted in a new website platform and from their valuable feedback, we built these upgrades into our experience to produce a better product. Now for BlueberryCMS, the customer experience is what we deem as the most important part of our business model. We are you. We are web designers and software engineers who intelligibly decided to create a better product.

Here are just some of the features we have in our platform:

  • Reports & Analytics
  • Hosting & Email
  • Dashboard
  • Site Manager (CMS)
  • Customer Database (CRM)
  • Data Collections (aka BC WebApps)

BlueberryCMS and Adobe Business Catalyst are vastly different. BlueberryCMS is a gigantic upgrade. We’ve built in more logical features than Business Catalyst ever had. Our drag and drop web page designer will be dual mode so you can design the way you want, when you want. We know you struggle with collecting content from clients. We all do. So trust us when we say, we feel your pain. BlueberryCMS will have content collection workflows to make that component of web design easier. Our workflows request the website content in an organized fashion that the development team can then use immediately. On our platform, you can choose Bootstrap or Foundation as your responsive website framework.

Having the power to post across multiple social media platforms just makes sense. So, we built this feature right into the backend of BlueberryCMS. With zero technical website maintenance, superior customer service and detailed explanation videos, your entire team will increase productivity. BlueberryCMS also offers automatic backups on all of your files. And lastly, our white label marketing materials can even help your account executives explain the benefits of our website business solution to your clients.

We are excited to serve our incredible community of web designers and marketing agencies and thank you for taking the time to learn about our passion. Till next time!
