We've been using the leading Umbraco Content Management System since version 2, we're shortly moving to version 8, so you could say we're quite experienced implementors. All our developers are Umbraco Certified and we're regular attendees of the annual Codegarden developers meet up in Denmark, so we're delighted to become one of the UK's 32 Certified Partners.
Partnership guarantees our Umbraco verified skill level, ensuring that you're in safe hands, and it's a knowledge partnership so we have direct dialogue with their development team.
Sometimes, it transpires, we're even ahead of them - we recently developed a bespoke solution using Umbraco for Senator Group, the UK's largest furniture manufacturer. Senator own a number of brands which they market independently as well as collectively and, in different territories such as the US. So we developed a 'headless CMS' which provides a single platform with one central repository of products which are published in the different relevant sites. Territory variations, such as metric and imperial measurements, are also managed in the system. It's completely bespoke but then, what do you know, last week Anders Sorensen came over from Umbraco's HQ in Denmark and gave us access to the beta version of their new headless CMS! Great minds think alike as they say.
As developers and designers, we love Umbraco because it's open source and so completely flexible. There's no fuss and no limitations, it's a framework that doesn’t get in the way of whatever we need to make it to do. This flexibility makes it the perfect CMS for both low and high complexity projects.
And our clients love Umbraco because it's so user friendly it makes it really easy to edit and add content, and to control how it's displayed. It's a tool that helps bring content to life without any frustrations resulting in significant increases in the frequency of content updates.
There's nearly half a million Umbraco sites globally now including many big brands, and we've built dozens of sites ourselves using Umbraco, of varying scales. We're pretty chuffed with a recent site we've developed for Universal Skills, see www.universalskillsgroup.co.uk which includes a custom course booking tool - a nice piece of bespoke dev by senior developer James. We also designed a new brand for Universal. And we're getting close to finishing the new Senator Group site, which is a monster!
