Brand New Gold Partner from the Netherlands

Written by:

We would like to give a warm welcome to our newest Gold Partner theFactor.e! 🎉 The digital agency has been proudly doing several big projects with Umbraco, and they love that it’s open-source and based on .NET. But mostly, they love it because it’s truly user-friendly. They are committed to Umbraco and strongly believe in it. That’s why they continued their Umbraco journey by becoming a Gold Partner. theFactor.e is here to tell you the rest:

Hello everyone!

We are theFactor.e.😄 We started our journey in 1995 and have since grown into a full-service digital agency with more than 70 dedicated employees. Our offices are located in Groningen and Amsterdam. 

We specialize in creating and developing websites, platforms, apps, and other digital products for different kinds of sectors, such as finance, healthcare, government, and education. What differentiates us from other agencies is that our main focus lies in creating business value and co-creating with our clients, resulting in user-friendly digital solutions. 

Where is your end-user located? Billy the lab will drive there🚚

We frequently do usability tests with the end-users of our clients to optimize their digital products. In fact, we do not design or create anything without involving actual customers, because they are the experts on how to use the digital product. All tests take place in “Billy”, our usability lab on four wheels.

Our clients are highly involved in every phase of strategy, design, development, and optimization. Umbraco allows us to effectively accommodate our clients’ wishes. 

Transitioning to Umbraco - the friendliest CMS

We have a long history with .NET development, so when we wanted to choose an open-source CMS, Umbraco was the obvious choice for us. Umbraco offers everything we were looking for while being a secure, well-supported platform. On top of that, Umbraco has a big and active community - also here in The Netherlands with the popular Dutch Umbraco User Group (DUUG). 

Our developers love how scalable, secure and user-friendly Umbraco is. And of course that it is Microsoft .NET. The Umbraco CMS works great for editors and developers.

We’ve been working with Umbraco for some years now and have already accomplished a number of exciting projects with it, such as Academie Minerva, Elker and Noorderpoort.

Continuing the journey as an Umbraco Gold Partner🥇

We prioritize putting the human aspect in everything we do, so we needed an open-source CMS that helps to make the work of editors and content managers easier. The functionalities within Umbraco are user-friendly, fresh, and intuitive. We’ve found a good match between our clients’ needs and Umbraco. That’s why we’ve decided to take the next step and become an Umbraco Gold Partner.

''We see a growing demand for the Umbraco CMS, so being a proud Gold Partner shows our commitment and our belief in Umbraco. It's a great addition to the other CMS's we offer to our client base.''

- Arjan Wessels, Commercial Director
