IT Effect and Umbraco

Our first Umbraco website was developed in 2010 here in Wellington and we were hooked.

Since then we have had the pleasure of creating many beautiful websites with Umbraco.

See "Our Work" to learn more about the sites we have created.

Why do we love Umbraco?

Content Management:

Most sites we build have a high content management component. They are always changing with new and updated content.

Fortunately for us Umbraco is super easy to use. Every time we run a training session the feedback is the same "its the easiest CMS I have ever used".


Microsoft Technology Stack:

Like many of our customers we develop on the Microsoft stack and wanted a CMS that allowed us to use the tools and technologies we are familiar with.  

Umbraco allows us to easily integrate .NET controls. It also provides programmatic access via the API which is easy to use direct from Visual Studio. 



We work with a wide range of designers - none of whom want to compromise on their design.

Umbraco uses best practice web standards like XHTML, CSS, jQuery to let you control event the smallest markup details.

If it can be built on the web we can build it in Umbraco.
