Welcome to the club: Webmind from Sweden becomes Gold Partner
Hallå! Hello! Hej! 😄
We’re Webmind, a Swedish web agency founded in 2004 in Gothenburg. We have recently also opened a new office in Örebro. Jens and Emma run the agency together, supported by Ragazza, their pet dog, and a set of fine full-time employees and interns.
Our agency specializes in Umbraco and Ucommerce and is actually the only Ucommerce powerhouse in Sweden.
We’re happy to be dedicated ambassadors in the Swedish Umbraco community as we organize and host the Swedish Umbraco Festival 😊🦄
How we “met” Umbraco
Back in 2014 we were looking for an open source CMS to complement the CMS that we had created. Our top requirements were MVC, .NET and it had to be user-friendly.
We decided on Umbraco and since our first case with Umbraco we haven’t worked with any other CMS.
What we love the most about Umbraco is that it’s open source, flexible, secure and expandable. We know that Umbraco is often called the friendliest community, and we could not agree more!
Before Umbraco we worked with our self-developed CMS, but it was hard for us to further develop and maintain the system. Our clients were also struggling with using the CMS and we wanted to work with something more user-friendly that our clients could easier comprehend.
How we decided on taking the golden step
Celebrating the golden partnership in style! Here also together with Friend Maker, Helle, from Umbraco HQ.
This is an important goal that we have had ever since we first started working with Umbraco.
“Being an Umbraco Gold Partner gives us the opportunity to contribute more to the community and build a closer and stronger relationship with Umbraco HQ.” Jens Josefsson, CEO, Webmind
Over the years we have invested a lot in the community and today we are in a position were we have both the right resources and competence to contribute further.
So now we felt that the timing was right for us to take that next step.
We see many benefits with becoming a Gold partner:
- The title helps us to differentiate ourselves when it comes to marketing. We also get assistance with different marketing and sales material.
- We get to send one of our developers to the “Gold Partner Academy” and give all our developers access to Umbraco TV.
- We can develop a closer relationship with HQ and participate at the partner summits.
- We get to contribute financially to the HQ and to the development of the plattform.
- We get technical support from Umbraco.
- Last but not least, the title conveys safety and more trust to our potential new clients.
Yes, we went all in! Cake, champagne, confetti, custom made decoration, Danish flags - what a celebration!
We have been waiting for this moment for so long. Webmind is very proud to now belong to the exclusive group of the most amazing agencies in the world!
