From my experience, Lithium has been designed to suite the larger corporation type of needs. While that doesn't exclude the need in other business, you certainly get more "bang for your buck" if your community is in the area of big business and you are looking to meet very unique needs for a large range of customers. Those unique needs are what communities are so great at providing, it is customer feedback that is highly accurate and dependable. An online community such as vBulletin I presume may have been suggested to you to meet less demanding needs. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, you may find an alternative to suite you better. Take care 🙂
