7 Things BCMS Can Do vs WordPress

  • All in one price

    While WordPress is a free and open-source platform, creating a website using WordPress isn't free. You'll still need to pay for plugins to create a secure and stable website. With BCMS, everything is included in one price. One of the benefits of this is that as your business grows, the cost doesn't change, keeping the price point predictable and manageable.

  • Out of the box solution

    If you compare BCMS with WordPress, BCMS offers an out-of-the-box solution. By signing up for BCMS, you're just a few steps away from creating your website all in one place. You won't need to install any additional plugins. A WordPress site requires the installation of plugins for almost all additional functionality other than basic blogging with a default theme. There are a lot of separate plugins in WordPress, which makes setup complicated, but manageable, whereas BCMS bundles everything into one package.

  • User permissions

    BCMS offers built-in fine-grained user permissions. For every team member you add to BCMS, you'll be able to specify what they can see, create, edit, or delete. For example, you can invite a content editor who can only edit blog entries. That way, your team has access only to the relevant information inside the BCMS, and you keep the data secure.

  • Speeeeeed

    WordPress speed is greatly affected by content, installed plugins, and themes, while BCMS is one of the fastest CMSs out there. We spent a lot of time optimizing BCMS for huge amounts of content.

  • File storage and management

    BCMS comes with built-in file storage, folders, and optimization. Having your files organized into folders and sub-folders saves a lot of time and headaches. Plus, for every image, you can specify the exact size and image quality you want to get from the CMS. That way, you don't need to worry about compression and image quality.

  • First class support

    With WordPress, you have to fill out a support form and wait for a response. With BCMS, you won't need our help often, but when you do, we'll be here.

  • Multiple languages supported

    Both WordPress and BCMS can be used to translate your website into multiple languages. WordPress recommends using a paid plugin, which starts at $99 a year. BCMS allows an unlimited number of languages - out of the box.

Why Developers Prefer BCMS to WordPress

  • Reliable development

    Both BCMS and WordPress have developers working on the product. Most of BCMS's elements are built inside BCMS, such as image optimization, custom inputs, multilingual support, and so forth. WooCommerce is a bit more fragmented, heavily relying on plugins, which may not be updated by developers for bugs regularly.

  • Full control over your code

    With BCMS, developing websites doesn't mean installing a bunch of 3rd-party plugins you have no control over. Instead, you will be able to develop any functionality just by using powerful BCMS custom inputs, custom functions, plugins, events etc.

  • Use it with any programming language or framework

    BCMS is an API Headless CMS, which means that you can consume content from BCMS from any codebase you want. PHP is nice, but... This creates a barrier for a lot of developers unfamiliar with PHP. Plus, then you can't use beautiful Next.js, Gatsby, or Nuxt.

  • Native REST API, GraphQL API, and SDKs

    BCMS comes with Rest, GraphQL, and different SDKs to use with your favorite tools. You might have heard of Headless WordPress. Right now, it is still unreliable, extremely slow, and developer-unfriendly.

  • Native SEO

    With BCMS, every single line of code is written by you and your team. That means - you have full control over the HTML and content on your website. Technical SEO 🚀.

WordPress was a pioneer. It's time for BCMS to take over.

What WordPress has done for the Internet is mind-blowing. It’s a great company with a genuinely pioneering product. Modern Headless CMS solutions like BCMS wouldn’t be what they are today without them.

That said, you’re asking a great question. WordPress is a generic CMS meant to satisfy many audiences, needs, and industries.

If you’re okay with a slow website by default, installing many plugins (most of them paid), BCMS probably won’t be a good fit for you. But if you care about producing super-fast, endlessly customizable, stable, and secure websites - you’re in the right place.

Our users love
what we do
“We've been using BCMS for the past two years, and we love it! With a very intuitive CMS, it is easy to manage websites without a single developer on the team. And because there are BCMS widgets for all kinds of needs, managing content feels like playing a game. It made our job at Saturized easier and gave us more time to focus on what matters most - our clients.”
