#switchtowordpress — Sitecore to WordPress

Work faster. Be better.

WordPress powers over one-third of the web—that’s 10x as many websites as the next largest CMS. Nothing comes as close to its scale. By harnessing the power of the world’s most popular way to build a website, Rareview transforms your site from fine to prime. But Sitecore migrations are hard work. You need infrastructure and support, security and performance, and—ahem—someone like Rareview to handle the tough stuff. 

#switchtowordpress and unlock the benefits of a site run on WordPress by Rareview.

01. Increased Usability

Imagine making complex changes with just a few clicks. With quick editing, easy access to backend components, and built-in preview functionality, once difficult changes in Sitecore now take fewer steps with WordPress.

02. Improved Performance

Optimized for security and scale, statistics prove WordPress’ overall performance is consistently better than Sitecore. Services are specifically developed for the needs of high scale enterprise users, and WordPress has revolutionized website performance across the globe.

03. Flexible Functionality

Due to its open source nature, WordPress gives you the freedom to build whatever you want, choose from a massive library of plugins and components, and connect with the largest Web community in the World. With improved forms, search functionality and direct support, WordPress outperforms Sitecore across the board. Support In terms of direct support, WP outperforms SC, at least from a VIP perspective (the dedicated Zendesk, launch, etc.).

04. Lower Cost

Sitecore and other platforms thrive off contracts, locking in companies with websites that are expensive to maintain. That’s not ok with us. We think you should be free to explore the power of the open Web—without being locked down. With WordPress there are no contracts, and free open source materials keep costs even lower. Support In terms of direct support, WP outperforms SC, at least from a VIP perspective (the dedicated Zendesk, launch, etc.).
