What Finalsite Composer Users Have to Say...

"Composer is an easy platform for people to learn, especially for those who aren’t well-versed in these systems had no problem learning it. The elements provide us the opportunity to make our pages more engaging. It gives us a lot more flexibility in terms of layout, which helps with making more engaging content. "

- KIMBERLEY EVES, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS
GREENWICH PUBLIC SCHOOLS

"I was super impressed with Finalsite Composer from the beginning. It's really intuitive, and it goes a step further by having already built-out capabilities that hadn't even occurred to me. I kept thinking 'wouldn't it be nice if Composer could do this,' and then I would find out it can! You can just tell the software was really thoughtfully developed, built based on years of experience and requests, layers and layers of requests, and tailored to a website editor's needs and experience."

Alyce Callison, Website and Digital Communications Manager
Germantown Friends School

"It's a testament to the ease of using Composer that someone with little or even no web experience can learn it quickly."
