Comparison Table

The Market
Accessible technology stack
The technology stack of many enterprise content management systems is antiquated. On top of that, they charge inflated license fees and high update and maintenance costs for outdated, rigid, and inflexible technology.
Our technology stack is based on the latest open source standards and is fully accessible. Symfony PHP framework provides many reusable components and enables companies to stay ahead of the competition by pushing their experience with no limit.
Flexibility for customization
'Standard software' only covers certain standards - as the name suggests. Besides, functional extensions are often manufacturer-dependent, which makes independent development impossible.
You can extend the platform to meet your specific needs without purchasing additional niche solutions, through a DXP/CMS framework that can enable any customization, and flexible feature enhancements.
Ease of integration
Limited interfaces make it necessary to adjust your processes to the software. Small scale vendors often cannot meet the requirements of enterprises for integration of software into their existing infrastructures.
Integration is easy because our software adapts to your processes - not the other way round - to ensure your digital experience remains seamless; whether in the cloud, on premises or by APIs with headless content-as-a-service.
Seamless customer experience
Lack of ability to support a consistent, personalized digital customer experience across your websites, online shops, portals, blogs, apps and future touchpoints.
Pimcore delivers a consistent customer experience across the entire customer journey with multi-site, real-time behavioral targeting, personalization, analytics, and marketing automation.
Time to market and total cost of ownership
Many CMS systems are only suitable for the administration of websites, which means building and maintaining the necessary integrations between your PIM/MDM, DAM, CDP, commerce platforms and other marketing software, become costly, complex and time-consuming.
Pimcore is more than just a CMS. Its digital experience platform (DXP) includes digital commerce, CDP, PIM/MDM and DAM modules. Solutions can be deployed in less than six months, which results in a faster time-to market, while lowering your total cost of ownership by using a single digital experience platform.
