We’re thrilled to announce that we have become a Umbraco Gold Partner, the friendliest and fastest-growing open-source .NET content management system (CMS) in the world. It’s a recognition of our knowledge and proficiency in the software and means our clients can expect efficient project execution, on-time delivery, and reliable support.

Umbraco has evolved since its creation in Denmark in 2000 from a niche product into an open-source platform used by more than half a million companies and web solutions globally. These range from small business brochure sites to complex multilingual corporate websites for firms including McDonalds and Mercedes Benz.

For years, Umbraco has been Embrace’s go-to CMS for building websites. It’s scalable, secure, and offers fantastic support. Umbraco is our foundation to create sites that are easy to update, well-designed, adaptable, offer a great user experience, and ultimately do what they are needed to do. Umbraco is founded on a collaborative community that works together to move the platform forward. We’re proud to be part of it and enjoy the support, camaraderie and potential that comes with it.

What does it mean to be an Umbraco Gold Partner?

Umbraco Gold Partners are accredited for their knowledge of the platform and proficiency in tasks like installation, building, configuring, and extending the product. Now that Embrace is a Gold Partner, we have a direct line to Umbraco HQ, with access to priority support and architectural advice and can request bug-fixes under a guaranteed Service Level Agreement. So we supercharge our productivity, and our clients get an enhanced service.

Making clients, developers, marketers and editors happy

Embrace is a creative agency that defines, designs, writes and builds brand experiences for an omni-channel world. We can take a project from positioning, understanding audiences and developing effective creative right through to delivery of a website.  As specialists in healthcare and finance, security is a top priority for our clients. Umbraco meets the highest standards, since it uses the Microsoft Stack and Microsoft Windows servers and benefits from the core security protection built into those systems.

Also, importantly for our clients Umbraco makes it easy to implement sustainability best practices with mindful design, development and hosting of websites.

Our developers appreciate that Umbraco creates clean code and allows for seamless integrations into other solutions. Client-side page editors love its flexibility and granular design approach, in which content can be created, edited and accessed from the front end and placed anywhere on a single page. Overall, we’ve found it to be the best CMS for facilitating the creativity that we bring to business challenges and supporting our clients in their onwards growth.

Umbraco Cloud boosts capability

In recent years, we’ve been working more and more on the Umbraco Cloud. It’s the same familiar CMS but hosted on Microsoft Azure – the most innovative cloud platform on the market. It automatically upgrades, so there’s no need to manually update for new features, bugs fixes and security patches. Working on Umbraco Cloud boosts the capability of the CMS with a range of tools and features to minimize time spent on setup and configuration, allowing us to get into the productive phase of development super-quick.

Going for gold

Our journey to Umbraco Gold Partner status has been a natural progression as we’ve gained more expertise and affinity with the CMS through years of specialisation. We’re glad we made the investment in training and time to become top-level ‘Umbracians’. And we look forward to using our favourite CMS in the years ahead to enable the creativity that unlocks potential for our clients.
