Why we chose Umbraco

Umbraco is a premium open source content management system, which means we can create technically advanced and secure sites, without a costly license fee. This makes it perfect for brochure sites as well as more complex developments with bespoke functionality.

It offers the best of both worlds – the diversity of open source, and the support and security of the Umbraco HQ development team. The CMS is extremely flexible, enabling you and your team to control your site’s content with ease. Intuitive modules mean you can create forms, crop images and preview all your changes across different devices.

There are also a host of extensions to take advantage of, such as email marketing integrations or royalty-free image search functions.
