An open source CMS with all of the benefits of the Microsoft .NET framework – this is a real ‘cake and eat it’ situation.

The Umbraco CMS platform has been taking the internet by storm and for good reason.

For many ‘open source’ has come to mean compromise, but with Umbraco there are no compromises needed. The CMS is based on Microsoft .NET technology and offers a feature-rich and professional CMS that can power beautiful, elegant online experiences.

A Close Partnership

At true, we are very proud to be an Umbraco Platinum Partner and have extensive experience in implementing the CMS both in the ‘paid-for’ cloud package and our own CMS setups.

We have a strong, collaborative, and close partnership with Umbraco HQ and are passionate advocates of the Umbraco community. true’s tech team recently spoke at the annual developer conference, Codegarden, for the second year running, as well as Umbraco’s innovation conference, Umbraco Spark earlier in the year. true are also members of both the community back-office team and the core collaborators team to help shape the future of the platform. So much so, that true’s Head of Technology, Matt Sutherland, was recently awarded the Umbraco MVP award, an accolade only given to a handful of people annually who have gone over and above in their contribution to the community.

In addition, true’s tech team plays a key role in the developer community, from hosting hackathons, speaking at meetups including hosting a recent event at true HQ for umBristol.

Always Innovating

Technical innovation is key to keeping the agency and our clients ahead of competitors. We have an ongoing R&D programme that allows us to get familiar  with new technologies, new implementation techniques and embrace innovative ways of thinking about technology. This is an integral part of the weekly tech team meetings but also the way the wider agency thinks about technology.
