Why you should choose Umbraco
Content editors to the front
Umbraco prides itself on being “the friendly CMS”, and that rings true from the moment you log in to the system.
By design, Umbraco puts editors first, and ensures that every new feature or user interaction is easy for an editor to work with. Most importantly, onboarding a new editor is easy, with very little training required to get up to speed.
Custom tools for your business
Content apps, custom dashboards, and more, means we can create a unique CMS experience tailored to your business.
Seamlessly manage multiple websites through a single Umbraco instance, with the ability to add additional hostnames and new sites with ease, on a single set of server resources (meaning big savings for your business).
Integration with your existing systems
With the ability for our developers to add extra capabilities or functionalities with ease, Umbraco is designed for extensibility.
Powerful search engine
Umbraco uses Apache Lucene – one of the fastest and most powerful search engines – to build an impressive search experience for all your content in one place.
Umbraco is well-maintained, updated, and regularly audited by security experts. Breaches are rare, and patches tend to be easy for developers to apply - meaning we can keep your product safe and secure, at all times.
Comprehensive User and Permission management
A user-friendly publishing workflow with multiple roles (Admin, Editor, Writer, and Translator) allows you to maximise effective team management.
Speed is everything when it comes to conversions and Umbraco sites are built to be lean and fast, without being bogged down with dozens of packages required to make it run.
Custom landing pages
Umbraco allows you to build pages with a range of elements such as rich-text, headlines, images, videos, Google maps, custom forms, and more, as required.
No plugins or packages required, if you need to reach international markets. Adding a new language is simple, and your editors can update pages with side-by-side editing to make the translation process easy.
Support for Headless
Calico has built an extension to Umbraco to allow support for Headless, a content management system that provides several benefits for you: reduced hosting costs, improved website performance, and faster development.
Easily control all of your SEO elements, including Open Graph requirements and meta information. For further optimisation, you can also edit your URL structure directly in the Umbraco CMS.
Umbraco can grow with your organisation and be continuously built upon as your needs change. From lean single sites to expansive enterprise systems, Umbraco will evolve to meet your needs.
