Welcome to the family: Nedfinity from the Netherlands becomes Umbraco Gold Partner
Hello, we’re Nedfinity 😊
We were found 18 years ago, in 2000. At that time it seemed like a lot of agencies were creating beautiful website designs, but the back office of those websites wasn’t good. Nedfinity started out with the philosophy to change that - we sought to create both an appealing design and strong technical solution.
We started out 2 people and today we are 18. Our company has two locations in the Netherlands: headquarters in Zwolle and an office in Amsterdam. Our clients range from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
Curious about our company name? The first part derives from (Ned)erland which is how you spell the Netherlands in Dutch, while infinity represents infinite possibilities on the internet.
Once upon a time we needed an open source CMS...
In the beginning we worked with our own CMS. Eventually we reached a point where we either had to build another version of this CMS or go for an open source CMS based on .NET. We chose the latter, because there’s an ongoing development of the system, broad community of users and no vendor lock-in for customers.
Then we started to use Umbraco, stopped developing our own CMS and didn’t look back. In the past we worked with other CMSs and they cannot compete with Umbraco in terms of flexibility and developer-friendliness. We love programming in .NET and we see Umbraco as the best open source .NET CMS out there. Why do we think so?
“We value close collaboration with our clients in that we work together in outlining the strategy early on and provide marketing and support services after the development is fulfilled, for example, that could be paid advertising, SEO and marketing automation. For all these aspects, Umbraco helps us to create an optimal implementation and the best customer experience,” Renzo Koning, Managing Director, Nedfinity
In daily practice Umbraco stands for a great experience both for developers and end-users. It’s really nice that you don’t have to be a developer to change things in the back office of Umbraco.
Our experience is that we can implement our additional functionality in a lean and effective way where Umbraco is not limiting the possibilities, a tendency that other CMSs sometimes have. That’s very important to us, because we do a lot of development in combination with other systems.
We love that our developers have a lot liberty in programming. Umbraco is very open in terms of API connections. We can link various web services and API’s in a swift and smooth manner.
...and then decided to become a Gold Partner
Being Umbraco Gold Partner helps us increase our visibility and get new clients. Before some clients would actually ask us why we’re not a Gold Partner.
It is also about being informed about the newest things of Umbraco and the short lines to the support from HQ. It helps us bring our customers a better CMS and better support.
We see the partnership as an acknowledgement of our knowledge and passion for Umbraco. We are now part of a selected group of Umbraco Certified Gold Partners in the Netherlands!
