"TinyMCE has allowed us to stand apart from our competition. We can now say that we have a solution that truly allows our users to customize how their content looks as easily as they would a Word document, but still keep our own branding."

Justin Witz|CTO and Co-Founder, Catapult

"I have five developers under me on this platform and the amount of time we spend with TinyMCE to implement or upgrade it is minutes. The overhead is so low, development-wise, compared to other tools that it’s practically non-existent."

Tim Craver|Development Manager, Allied Solutions

"TinyMCE is so easy to use, and we don't have to worry about text editing anymore. Without Tiny, we would have had to put somebody full time on building a tool like that, which could easily have cost $100,000 a year, not to mention the ongoing costs of maintaining an expensive tool."
