dotCMS 5.1 fuels positive reviews on G2Crowd, with enterprise brands praising the platform’s user-friendliness and high-quality cloud hosting support

MIAMI, FL. — dotCMS, a leading open-source Java CMS, continues to receive positive reviews on G2 Crowd, a peer-to-peer verified review site. 

Following the pivotal rollout of both dotCMS 5.0 and dotCMS 5.1, the open-source headless CMS has received 25 positive reviews, including 7 from enterprise companies with 1,000 employees or more. 

Due to its overall score of 4 out of 5 stars, as well as the overwhelmingly positive response from enterprise companies, G2Crowd awarded dotCMS with a “High Performer Summer 2019” status.

One verified reviewer remarked that "[dotCMS] is an efficient and powerful tool for managing content." It's true, with the enhanced Content Type Builder and Edit Mode Anywhere, dotCMS 5.1 streamlines the creation and publishing of content for marketing teams. That’s why many reviewers rate dotCMS high for content authoring and rich text editing.

Another dotCMS Cloud user remarked that, “[dotCMS] support is amazing." dotCMS Cloud is a platform as a service solution that offers a flexible and adaptable AWS infrastructure for keeping up with the latest innovations in the marketplace. 

dotCMS is renowned for the close relationship it maintains with its community, and this too was mentioned by reviewers. “[dotCMS] listens to customers and integrate[s] feedback into updates,” one verified reviewer said.

A Headless CMS “Powerhouse”

One review identified dotCMS as a “stable powerhouse”, and continues by highlighting the “simplicity” of the headless CMS. “I've used other CMS programs such as Shopify, Magento, Wordpress etc and I found I was able to dive straight in and get started,” the reviewer stated. 

“it's a [Hy]brid CMS and it's great for headless developments [as well as] standard content management,” another reviewer remarked. 

“Because each reviewer is verified, G2 Crowd reviews play a vital role in the technology buying process, so we’re pleased to see dotCMS customers speaking openly and positively about our platform,” said Alexandra Barcelona, dotCMS’s Director of Marketing.

“We’re happy to see G2Crowd act as yet another channel of communication between us and our vast community of users, which consists of SMBs as well as enterprise brands,” Barcelona added.
