What is an Umbraco website?

By Woven Agency, Tuesday July 24, 2018

Umbraco? Don’t they make football shirts?

Er, no. That’s Umbro. Umbraco, on the other hand, is an open-source CMS (content management system) that lets your web developer build beautiful, powerful and flexible websites. Which is where we come in, because not only do we use Umbraco, we’re also an Umbraco Certified Partner, which means we’ve demonstrated our abilities to such a degree we can proudly call ourselves an Umbraco agency.

The benefits of Umbraco

Content management systems make it very easy for website administrators to update their websites – without any requisite design knowledge. So most of the actions you take on your website, such as posting and editing content, can be done with just a few clicks.

The power and flexibility of Umbraco means you can create any website you want, so it’s as suitable for a small start-up as it would be for a multinational mega-corp.

Far from being just another CMS, Umbraco is an expansive community containing over 200,000 developers across the world. This means we benefit from – and provide benefit to – a huge, knowledgeable and experienced developer community; benefits that we pass onto our clients, ensuring they get the best Umbraco user experience possible.

We also love Umbraco here at Woven because of its flexibility, seamless integration with MS Office programmes, suitability for ecommerce, and the simple way it lets you publish and manage content. You can edit and delete content at a moment’s notice and schedule it to be uploaded at any time.

It’s also fast – a crucial asset in a digital world, where slow-loading sites can turn off an impatient readership and negatively affect your search rankings.

As such, Umbraco is a vital and powerful tool in an era where content is king.

The benefits of choosing an Umbraco agency

To become an Umbraco Certified Partner agency, your developers need to have passed Umbraco’s official training courses. And because our web dev team passed with flying colours, Woven are on Umbraco’s extremely prestigious Certified Partners list – see here for yourself.

This is great news for our clients because it guarantees they’re working with an agency that has an Umbraco-verified skill level. It proves to them that we’ve been given the seal of approval from the highest authority – Umbraco themselves.

As an Umbraco agency, we have access to Umbraco’s online training courses, one-to-one knowledge-sharing with Umbraco HQ specialists and to the larger Umbraco community as a whole. This means we are constantly analysing and improving our Umbraco abilities to give our clients the most up-to-date and memorable Umbraco experience possible.

Which means you’ll be in good hands when you choose us to handle your next project.
