Welcome to the family: Screenmedia from the UK becomes Umbraco Gold Partner
Hi there! 👋
We’re Screenmedia - an innovation partner for mobile, web and the internet of things and are made up of a multidisciplinary team of strategists, planners, designers and technologists.
We’re located in Glasgow in beautiful, sunny Scotland and our 50-strong team work with innovative clients from all over the world.
Why we see Umbraco as the friendliest CMS
We decided to work with Umbraco thanks to its ease-of-use, creativity, and out-of-the-box scalability. It’s perfect for web designers, developers and content creators alike and offers the power and flexibility to run anything from pure publishing sites, right through to complex applications for Fortune 500 companies, to some of the largest media sites in the world.
Because Umbraco is open source, you get all the great functionality you'd expect, without the hefty licence fees. In fact, we think it’s the web and mobile’s friendliest CMS.
Unlike many other systems, Umbraco does not provide any default visual templates. Having 100% control of templates and markup that enables us to create designs that meet our client's unique requirements is definitely one of our favourite features.
“Umbraco offers everything that site owners, content managers, designers and developers need to create and maintain sites of the highest quality and modernity,” Colin Banks, Technical Project Director, Screenmedia
And if you run more than one site or share content between sites, the licence-free value really comes into its own. In one instance we successfully ran as many as 23 microsites off one installation.
From a broader perspective, lower costs, less reliance on customised products, and a broader field of collaborators on open source tech really appeal to us too.
We've looked at Ektron, Sitefinity, Kentico, and many other content management systems, and although they all have their plus-points, not one is as complete as Umbraco.
We also love the fact that Umbraco has invested in developing a network of certified developers, trainers and partners to prove their Umbraco mastery and this cohesive network is reflected in the recommendations we receive both from past clients and Umbraco itself.
8 years of history - Umbraco Gold Partner today
Our history with Umbraco goes back to 2010, and since the launch of our first Umbraco site, we’ve been working hard to become one of its leading UK developers, so naturally, we’re delighted to be recognised as one of the Gold Partners from all over the world.
Screenmedia are long time developers of Umbraco. Which is why we realised that the support Umbraco HQ was providing and the kudos of becoming a Gold Partner, would have a direct correlation in client confidence and trust in anything we developed using Umbraco.
So imagine how delighted we were when we were certified as Umbraco Gold Partners! We can’t wait to see what the future holds.
