Welcome to the family: Equator becomes Gold Partner
Hello! Nice to meet you! 😊
We are Equator. We’re a Digital Transformation Agency. Since launching in 1999 we’ve been working toward creating the world’s best Connected Experiences that truly enable our clients to out-pace the competition. During this time, we’ve transformed many well-known brands, won many awards and grown to be among the top 5 UK agencies in our sector.
We love Umbraco!
There are many reasons why we think so highly of Umbraco. Since our first implementation, we’ve found Umbraco to be a fabulously effective, flexible and well-supported product that we’ve used for many different types of web experience. The key things that influence our decision to choose Umbraco are:
- enterprise features and functionality;
- empowers our customers;
- open source;
- community engagement and support;
- certification process;
- Umbraco is tried and tested.
It’s wonderful to have such an editor/user-friendly CMS at our disposal. Umbraco gives us all the flexibility/ extendibility we need to meet our clients’ requirements.
Our road to Gold partnership
We use Umbraco extensively and as a result, are actively involved in the community. We host the Glasgow Umbraco meetup, we’ve presented at Codegarden and are active in the online Umbraco community too.
We have created digital experiences on Umbraco that have won awards for a host of brands including Malmaison, AXA, BP, B Bank and SSE. And our Development Team Leader Carole is an Umbraco MVP! 😊

So, we’ve been developing our relationship with Umbraco over a number of years and decided that this year we’d look to move to Gold Partner in order to have a greater level of involvement in influencing development.
We’re an active member of the community so in addition, it’ll be fantastic to get more insight into the direction the Umbraco business is taking too.
As well as knowledge and influence, we see a lot of value in extended on-project and business development support from the Umbraco team. We also see a lot of value in the commitment to our staff and, after 10 years of developing over 250 websites for some world famous brands, we look forward to the opportunity to showcase our work on Umbraco's website.
Overall, we are very excited about this next chapter and happy to be a closer part of Umbraco's journey!
