  • Positive: as a free product out-of-the-box and having a .NET technical expert on staff, Umbraco has had a tremendously positive ROI for us

  • When used for the appropriate clients, Umbraco typically helps get a customized layout and data structure to market faster than some competing CMS platforms.
  • For clients that may not understand data relationships on the back end, the content management in the admin panel helps them visualize what's happening.
