Umbraco is a No Go

Umbraco is used as the main website for one of the business units. With that being said, it was used for the whole organization as a core point of content for technical documents and reference materials for our product. It addressed the problem of not having a functional website and met security needs.

At Attityde ApS, Silkeborg we develop all our customer solutions with Umbraco. If the customer demands anything else, we send them away! From giant to tiny companies, and through the use of Umbraco, our projects are always a success thanks to the flexibility of Umbraco. 500+ Umbraco sites and counting... Even our own website, intranet, and special products are based on Umbraco. We would be able to provide the same fantastic solutions if it wasn't for Umbraco... and we wouldn't want it any other way.

One of the client of my company will migrate several web site to Umbraco CMS. For now we are in a learning phase and start to test the workflow with Umbraco and several plugins like Ucommerce and uSync. Our client would start to migrate one or two sites and their application first, and they intend to migrate other of their applications and web sites later.

We create our website, so it is used by the whole organization and all our potential customers. We manage Umbraco CMS by a person in the marketing department, and a little work is done by developers. We also change Umbraco a little to suit the needs required by the marketing department as very important.

Easy to use CMS

We currently use Umbraco to build our company company website. It's a great tool and very easy to use, it allows me to [have] different roles from editor through to admin. The CMS is simple to use, each employee has been able to use it independently with very little training.

The system has allowed us to integrate our digital marketing into web pages, so for the end user, the process of completing forms is seamless.

We have been so impressed with the umbraco CMS that we currently use this tool to deliver [our] website to our customers.

The main reason we chose this tool was we wanted a site that could be updated and maintained by anybody, and we wanted to avoid having to wait for the development team to make a simple change to the site.

Umbraco CMS is the content management system for our entire website. It is used by the whole organization, but mostly the Content team, which uses it for publishing, and the Technology and Events teams. It addresses the need for a powerful, yet customizable management system that can host a wide range of content and media types.

Currently we have one client that uses Umbraco CMS. It filled their need of moving off of static HTML pages to a .NET CMS system that did not have prohibitive costs/licensing fees. The client only has one developer on hand, so this provided a way to democratize content updates across a larger user base.

Other than helping to implement Umbraco for some of our clients, we use Umbraco CMS as an alternative to WordPress for a couple of our microsites. We typically only consider Umbraco for our clients (and teams) when they have one or more tech-savvy resources to help instruct and troubleshoot issues when they come up.

From a business perspective, Umbraco is very flexible (and open source). It allows for more freedom in design and data architecture (vs WordPress). For some clients, that is a necessity.

Umbraco is used for custom projects (websites) for various clients. It is used as as framework (ASP.MVC 4) and content management system. It allows fast development of new websites, created from scratch. It allows non-professionals to create and manage content. Unlike PHP-based Drupal, Umbraco is based on ASP.Net and well fits into our company infrastructure.
