Overall Satisfaction with Umbraco 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.
  • Simple to use
  • Different people can be assigned different roles
  • Easy to keep the site updated with the latest information, no technical knowledge needed
  • Accessibility features can be turned on
  • If you miss an update on the software, issues can happen if you jump to far ahead of where you are
  • Search could be improved on the site
  • Has helped us to create more engaging pages that push people to complete the online forms
  • We have seen more people buy from us since we launched our new look website
  • We can easily update the content without waiting for the development team to make changes
We previously used WordPress, however this was not easy to use, it was a complicated system and was limited in what we could achieve, there was a big outlay in buying bolts on and ensuring the system was safe. We found we where spammed loads, we tried to make it work however after a year we decided to leave WordPress behind. The company did evaluated Adobe but the dev team decided that Umbraco was the best tool to meet our own needs.

Umbraco CMS is the perfect tool for a company that is looking to keep their website updated. The simple to use tools and templates means updating and creating new pages is easy. The WYSIWYG editor is a nice feature, however, for accessibility, there should be some more guidance on what is suitable to be used on the CMS.
