Best of Breed with no technical debt

The debate of ''Best of Breed vs a Suite CMS'' is ever ongoing and there's no right or wrong here - we even wrote an entire whitepaper about it. Choosing the right tech stack can have a big impact on your business. So what sets Umbraco apart from the rest?

Free and open source

With Umbraco, you will have no licence fees, hidden costs, or limitations on our open-source version. This means you can spend your budget on the actual development of your website. Lovely, isn't it?

If you need additional services we offer hosting, direct support, and multiple add-on products to further strengthen the platform. But you can use Umbraco for an entire implementation lifecycle without ever paying us a dime.

Best of breed

There is a reason we always mention 'customizable' and 'flexible' when talking about Umbraco. We've realized that there are only so many use cases that can be covered out-of-the-box with any CMS.

Instead of forcing extra features into the product that you'd never use, we've built Umbraco on a solid foundation that you can build upon and morph endlessly until it's just right for your goals.

No technical debt

The Umbraco CMS is in a constant development cycle from both the open-source community and Umbraco HQ. This ensures that you can always have an updated CMS where bugs are short-lived and squashed regularly.

It also means that any code written by you or an agency partner won't come back to haunt you later on. Using an open-source CMS means you always have access to the code and can take it with you if you want to change platform or agency.

What can you do with Umbraco for professional services?

Let us show you! Umbraco is not plug-and-play but requires development before it meets all of your demands. No single company are the same as another - that's why Umbraco is a perfect match with its
functionality, scalability, and flexibility of the CMS.

So how about we start with some proof from real-world projects that are using Umbraco to meet all of their needs?

The perfect marketing platform for lead generation

Umbraco is perfect for businesses that focus on lead generation.

With a clean codebase, you get a fast website. And with the flexibility it has, you can build the website just the way you want it to.

Umbraco is SEO-friendly and offers an easy-to-use form builder that you can connect directly to your Marketing Automation and CRM, or connect with anything through Zapier.

A great example is this case from Mercedes-Benz Private Lease where they increased test drive requests by 132% and had a 143% increase in their conversion rate of online orders.

A CMS built for editors

You don’t need a bunch of technical skills to be an editor in Umbraco; we've made it streamlined for you - even if you have hundreds of editors. And with the extendible back office, you can make the workflows fit exactly to their needs like with our case from HH Global or our case study on Dirkzwagers's website with 150 authors and 7500 articles.

Integrated workflows in the Backoffice ensure that you and your team won’t get interrupted and can always stay focused on the context and the content you are creating. 

Create a page, add text, upload and crop images perfectly for the page and write catchy SEO titles and descriptions - all without leaving the page you are working on.

Do you need to restrict areas or permissions for each editor? That's no problem with our user permissions, where you can use our built-in permissions or create your own, depending on the need of your organization. 

Keep your tech stack intact

A best-of-breed approach allows you to use the tools you know and love. You’re not forced into using anything you don’t want to; you can “just” integrate it.

Do you use HubSpot? Zapier? Active Campaign? ERP-Systems? E-commerce? A custom-built platform?

With a thoroughly documented API, your developers can integrate almost anything and make it work with Umbraco - and we encourage that, too! Our community of developers is always creating and sharing a selection of technology partner packages, packages, and extensions, that you can use right away.

 

Here are 3 inspiring solutions that all rely heavily on integrations, and made it work like a charm with Umbraco: Groenhart, Zenegy, and Berenschot Digital.

B2B portal and eCommerce

Umbraco also works as an e-commerce platform, and with the built-in member management features, you can build an entire B2B portal with gated content and even e-commerce functionality if you want to. 

You can check our case studies from Berenschot Digital or Groenhart to see how they did it.

While the Umbraco CMS does not come with eCommerce functionality out of the box there are several ways for you to use Umbraco as an eCommerce platform. The simplest way is to go with one of the eCommerce packages developed by our technology partners.

With our open-source code and open APIs, it's also possible to build and integrate your own solution with Umbraco to make a completely customized setup that fits your needs.

Multilingual editing for global websites

Finding it hard to edit and manage a website with several languages? 

We got you covered with Umbraco.  Our CMS ships with a simple way to manage multilingual websites. You can even edit language versions side by side with our split view feature, making it easier to translate from English to Spanish without having to switch between windows or tabs in your browser.

When your company expands into a new market it only takes a few steps to set up the new website for your targeted market and language, so you can focus on what matters most.

A scalable solution

When choosing a CMS, the question of best-of-breed vs suite solutions inevitably comes up. (For more, see our whitepaper on the topic)

With best-of-breed solutions like Umbraco, you don't have to fear code bloat or switch to a specific ERP, CRM, or marketing suite to make it work. Instead, you will have the flexibility to make it yours and fit your needs! 

You won't be limited by extra user costs or license fees. This means that there won't be a limit to the site architecture; you can pick the one that fits your needs without worrying about restraints or extra costs.

If you need a multisite setup, we've made it possible to set up with reusable project components using Baselines. If you need to make sure that multiple websites look and feel the same, you can do that too. And if you need to make updates you can do it in one place and push the changes to all of your sites in a fast and efficient manner.

Permission structure and user groups

When handling large-scale publications on a professional website, you need a clear permission structure for your users. This can often be an overly complex experience, which requires a lot of manual work.

     Unless of course... you choose Umbraco:

  1. A new team member is only a single invite away
  2. The onboarding experience is intuitive out-of-the-box and requires very little customization (if any)
  3. You can pick from predefined user groups or create your own to easily control user permissions. Administrator? Content editor? One-time contributor? Anything is possible.

Consistent brand and design

With complete design freedom, your website can look exactly like you want it to, so it can tell your brand story just like you want it to.

The Umbraco CMS makes it easy to go mobile-first with your design, and you can even preview and see how your latest changes will look on various devices. 

Frontend developers love working with Umbraco because they can use whatever frontend code they prefer - without the CMS getting in their way. Templating in Umbraco starts with your markup, not with you trying to modify something that is already there.
