What is Umbraco?
Umbraco is an open-source content management system based on Microsoft ASP.NET (pronounced dot net). Because it works well on Microsoft servers, it is a preferred choice for local authority customers, and in fact, HeX began doing development work with Umbraco in 2017, during a partnership with Broxtowe Borough Council.
The council was transferring their website and online forms to Umbraco procured through Meritec. As the council didn’t have an in-house web team, HeX took on that role, consulting on usability and accessibility practices and, later, being the go-to agency for website tweaks and ad-hoc developments as part of a website maintenance package.
