Your cheat sheet to prove the business case for WordPress to even the biggest skeptic

It’s no secret that finding the right platform to drive growth and innovation is a crucial part of your digital strategy. You may be considering a shift and have probably been told that the only path forward is with a proprietary closed-source DXP. That is not even close to the truth.

From Disney to The White House, enterprises have been utilizing WordPress solutions to solve complex business needs for over a decade. You may be sold on the benefits of WordPress, but need help convincing others on your team, here is your cheat sheet with all the reasons why WordPress is the PROVEN solution for the Enterprise.

Own Your Roadmap

One of the most compelling reasons to adopt WordPress lies in its freedom from restrictive licensing agreements.

Unlike proprietary solutions that tether you to specific vendors, WordPress empowers you to own your roadmap entirely. With no lock-in vendor licensing, you’re free to customize and expand your platform without constraints, putting you in control of your digital destiny.

New innovation/technology drops into the market and you want to try it out? With WordPress you can turn on and off integrations as needed, allowing even more innovation and iteration on your digital platform. 

Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Higher ROI

Cost-effectiveness is a hallmark of WordPress, offering a refreshing alternative to traditional enterprise solutions burdened by hefty licensing fees.

From implementation to maintenance, WordPress delivers significant savings without compromising quality. Scale Consortium members have found that businesses save on average 35% on TCO over proprietary systems. This translates to a higher return on investment and allows marketing teams to iterate and focus on new initiatives. By minimizing upfront costs and maximizing efficiency, WordPress drives measurable results and boosts the bottom line.

This can create unwavering brand consistency irrespective of geographic regions or product lines.
