Adobe Business Catalyst vs. WordPress

Sean Parnell - Saturday, March 14, 2015

For small and mid-sized business, WordPress has become the defacto web content management software (WCMS) of choice. However, is it the best?

We’ve developed and edited hundreds of websites in both WordPress and Adobe Business Catalyst, and we’ve found the latter to be a much better option for SMBs. This is why we became an Adobe Business Catalyst partner four years ago.
