Using The Friendly CMS

Our Work with Umbraco

Known as 'the friendly CMS', Umbraco is a future-proof, flexible, and cost-effective open-source content management system.

We've been an Umbraco Gold Partner since 2015 and have been working with the platform since way before that. 

Our Umbraco expertise has seen us deliver a range of websites and digital services, including API based integrations with legacy software and platforms. 

We love it so much, this site is even built with it.

It's free!

Possibly our clients’ favourite part - the main Umbraco CMS is free to use, meaning the website budget can be spent on building the site and features that matter to you and your customers.

We have held Gold Partner status since 2015. This status means we are a knowledgeable team with up to date skills and close relationship with Umbraco HQ.

As part of the Gold Partner scheme, we're committed to each of our team completing formal accreditation, and we also have regular contact with Umbraco HQ, and early access to new versions and features - meaning our clients can stay a step ahead. 

The CMS for your Composable DXP

As organisations grow in technical maturity, many are choosing to build their own digital experience landscape, picking and choosing the tech stack that best serves their customers. 

These composable DXPs (digital experience platforms) allow businesses to keep control of their customer and employee experience, and Umbraco's seamless integrations mean it can be the perfect CMS for organisations using a DXP strategy.
