Umbraco Gold (1)

Building websites with Umbraco

As an Umbraco Certified Gold Partner, we've built thousands of Umbraco websites, from simple but effective brochure sites that drive enquires to fully-integrated digital platforms that transform organisations.

Umbraco

Powerful websites that deliver results

We’re an Umbraco Certified Solutions Gold Partner – one of only 100s globally and just a handful in the UK – and have developed over 1,000 Umbraco-based web platforms.

 

This has enabled us to build a vast code library of common functions including a lot of specific functionality that we have developed for housing sector clients. It’s also helped us become familiar with the most popular back-office systems and typical integration requirements.

What is Umbraco?

Umbraco is an open-source .NET-based Content Management System that we use to build enterprise-level websites. It's one of the most deployed CMS on the Microsoft stack with over 500k installations and is one of the most popular server applications. The platform has been designed for ultimate freedom and flexibility, well known for its great editing experience.

"Umbraco is by far the most easy-to-use CMS we've ever come across - a very comfortable fit for anyone familiar with using Windows."

Mark Hesford, Communications Manager, Northwards Housing

We make complex integrations simple

Prodo has extensive experience of integrating with a range of third-party systems to develop online services that enable customers to transact with you real-time, online.

 

Systems we’ve integrated Umbraco with include: CRM systems, specialist housing management systems, document management systems, payment gateways, booking systems, sports data systems - we’ve even integrated with an IBM AS400 for any IT historians reading this!

Getting to now your needs & goals

We like to call this the Discovery phase - sounds magical, right? We're going to spend some time discovering everything we need to know about your business and what you need from your new website so that we can establish a solid, shared understanding of what's required. Through this stage, we'll create a specification, wireframes, sitemap and more.

Bringing your website to life

The Build phase is the exciting part - where you'll start to see all of the concepts and ideas come to life. Our in-house team of designers will work with you to understand your likes and dislikes to get a feel for the direction you want to take. We'll also get familiar with your brand guidelines, taking into account things like fonts, colours and logos. You might see moodboards, stylescapes and ideas early on to establish we're going the right way.

The nitty-gritty part

Our experienced Development team will work hard to transform your designs into a living, breathing, working website that meets all of the requirements and specification we'd agreed. Front-end developers will craft the code behind the designs into a fully-responsive web interface, whilst back-end developers will spin up the CMS and link up to the front-end. We'll also loop in with your technical teams or third-party suppliers as needed to connect APIs or third-party systems. 

Deployment

Releasing your website into the world

After rigorous testing on our side, we'll go through some final stages ahead of the website launch. We provide CMS training for your team so that you've got everything you need to work with your website going forward. Our Inbound team will also get involved to make sure everything from an SEO perspective is set up correctly.  

Support

Ongoing maintenance and support

Once live, you'll have a warranty period to help fix any bugs or issues missed during testing. After that, you'll get access to one of our Support packages, where our dedicated Customer Success team will work with you to keep your website secure and running smoothly - across things like technical maintenance, content support, security updates and new functionality.
