Finding a reliable CMS

Web developers across the world choose Umbraco as their CMS and in this blog, we’ll examine some of the reasons why clients of all sizes and sectors partner with an Umbraco agency, like Yoyo, to achieve the best results from their project. We’ll also explore what businesses should look for in an Umbraco developer - and what to expect when you work with an Umbraco agency.
But first, let’s start with a brief background to Umbraco…
What is Umbraco?
Known as "The Friendly CMS”, Umbraco was first created in Denmark in 2000 as an Open Source Content Management System and is now one of the most widely used CMS platforms used to run enterprise level websites for multinationals including Mercedes-Benz World, Microsoft, Carlsberg Group and many more.
But of course, behind every great Umbraco website is a great team of Umbraco developers, working at the highest level to achieve a successful digital solution for clients ranging from start-ups with a simple online presence to global organisations requiring complex, high-performing, multi-channel sites.
Why choose Umbraco?
As a team of seasoned web developers, we believe Umbraco ticks all the boxes for our clients’ needs. And then some.
Firstly, it’s built using Microsoft’s .NET which not only keeps websites secure and safe from cyberattack, but also offers huge flexibility for both our clients and our developers. By integrating technologies from an existing CRM system or email platform or adding apps or business functions such as ecommerce and user-generated content, Umbraco can be fully customised to meet the needs of the current business and to withstand future growth and higher volumes of traffic, making it the ideal platform for scaling businesses who want a truly flexible, future-proof digital solution.
Everyone involved in the creation of a new digital solution - from designers, developers, content creators, website owners and non-technical admins value Umbraco’s user-friendly interface, speed and flexibility. Once live, clients can take control of creating site content, editing, version control, adding blogs or videos and future publishing while Umbraco’s community of members and developers are on hand 24/7 when expert support is needed.
There’s little point in having a gorgeous website if no-one can find it, so Umbraco makes it easy to add technical features and elements to ensure Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) best practices are upheld - crucial to boosting visibility and visitors. And because Umbraco is an open-source CMS, once the website has been built, there are no additional licenses, fees or ongoing monthly costs.
