There are dozens of content management systems out there — and plenty of good ones. According to the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant For Web Content Management Systems (CMS), there are seven different solutions in the Leader Quadrant alone, and seven more tapped as Challengers or Leaders. So it’s no surprise that clients approach agencies and marketing companies with their own CMS preferences in mind.
That said, it’s just not practical for a small-to-medium agency to build and maintain a team of experts for every CMS on the market. It’s particularly impractical when you’re talking about an enterprise-class CMS like The Sitecore® Experience Platform™.
Large global organizations rely on Sitecore across their entire web ecosystem. When an RFP specifies Sitecore, the project is probably a huge opportunity for your agency, representing a substantial chunk of business. You can’t afford to sit on the sidelines just because you don’t have Sitecore expertise in-house.
Time to bring in an expert who can help your agency with Sitecore implementation — but it pays to be careful. Finding a partner who can truly deliver for your client while protecting your company’s interests can be tricky.
To find a Sitecore expert, the independent research and analysis firm Clutch is a good place to start. But there are five key things you should consider as you evaluate potential partners.
We’ve outlined these in our free whitepaper, which also includes an interview checklist for agencies to use when contacting Sitecore firms. Download your copy now.
