Enterprise Content Management

Umbraco Customization

Umbraco's CMS is a powerful and flexible Content Management System is open source and allows our developers to modify the platform to suit your specific needs. We choose Umbraco because it does not force us to create solutions that work for Umbraco first, and the client second. If you need a fully integrate website with backend or third-party tools and processes, Umbraco is our go-to product. 

– Reasons Why –

Content Control

Content contributors have varying degrees of education and understandings of the corporate philosophy towards content, strategy and accessibility compliance. Umbraco separates the presentation layer from the content editing layer to ensure that a contributor never departs from established protocols or content requirements. 



Sleep soundly knowing that the Microsoft .NET based Umbraco CMS is safe. Stay up to date with patches from both Microsoft and Umbraco.


Creative Control

Umbraco is structured to give designers and front-end developers ultimate control over how your content is displayed. 



The Umbraco system can handle heavy traffic loads due to the aggressive caching system that's baked into the software. 

Content As Data

Some CMS approaches think of content as simply strings of text, images, or documents. Umbraco's model is to think of the content on your screen as part of a larger, underlying data model. This allows you to use your content in multiple places, integrate it with external systems and APIs and divorce your content from the requirements of the User Interface.



Umbraco's back-end technology is based upon Microsoft web tech, Station Four's vertical of choice for software development. Our developers can create incredibly detailed integrations and customizations of the platform within our native languages and software development systems. 

Longevity & Support

A modern website is the hub of all of your organization's digital activity. It must be customized to be able to collect information and coordinate activities across a wide range of systems and tools. When you're evaluating making customizations to a website CMS, you need to ensure that your solutions will have longevity and will be supported by a robust community; Umbraco and Microsoft are well-established players in the industry and continue to grow. 


Cloud Hosting

Your relationship with your customer doesn't end after your project is completed. Ensure that you can guarantee continued success by offering your customers a ticketing system that can ease post-project communications and keep your team on track with support tasks.
