Want A Fast, Secure, Open Source CMS? Try UMBRACO
An easy-to-use Interface
One of the main advantages of Umbraco is its simple, secure user interface, which enables businesses to find all the information they need as quickly as possible, maximising their productivity. Content is also very easy to customise, which will certainly appeal to copywriters and content managers that are eager to switch from a CSM that doesn’t offer this level of versatility.
Supported by Umbraco HQ
This content management system is led by a profitable, pioneering company, Umbraco HQ, which delivers outstanding professional and open-source support for all users. Umbraco also offers worldwide training opportunities and support from qualified Microsoft software developers, who are the best people to use for developing this site. The company also has a large partner network who can assist people with their Umbraco projects, wherever and whenever.
With the WebMatrix, you can publish your website to a hosted server without hassle, and you can also make use of WebDeploy to automatically configure the server. For many developers, this is one of the most important elements of a content management system – no matter how good something looks in a local development environment, it eventually needs to be installed and configured to work on a live server. WebMatrix and WebDeploy help to take the stress out of this process, which means more time can be spent on development and live testing.
Multiple Site Support
A superb digital library
Umbraco has a convenient digital library where users will have instant access to step-by-step guides and more than 100 video tutorials. In addition, the company offers a premium support service that cost the equivalent of $4000. However, many businesses will be happy with the free version.
A truly dedicated Team
The people behind the brand are very passionate about their work, and comprise a close-knit team that regularly contribute to online forums. They describe themselves as ‘natural-born Umbracians’ and ‘just human beings’, and include some of the world’s leading experts in digital technology.
As an open-source content management system, Umbraco allows you to modify the source, should you wish. However, with open.NET and REST APIs, you don’t even need to make any modifications, and you are free to upgrade to the new version at any time.
