It can be hard to know which content management system (CMS) is right for you and your business.

With so many CMS solutions on the market, researching the ins and outs of your options can become laborious.  

We’re here to make things easier by doing some of the homework for you. 

In this article, we’ll discuss reasons why you should consider choosing Umbraco CMS for your next digital project. 


What is Umbraco CMS?

Umbraco is a popular and powerful open-source platform for building content-managed websites and web applications. 

Umbraco has been Bravo's platform of choice for over 100 projects, ranging from simple brochure websites to complex eCommerce and online membership systems.

6 reasons to choose Umbraco CMS

1. It’s easy to use

Known as 'The Friendly CMS', Umbraco makes it easy and intuitive for you to manage and update your website’s content. You can create anything from simple blog articles to responsive campaign websites. And you’ll only need minimal trianing to get started. 

Using Umbraco, you can schedule your content, preview how it will look on multiple devices, and even roll back your changes with one click if you change your mind.

We’ve moved lots of clients from other content management systems like WordPress and Kentico over to Umbraco and the feedback has always been resoundingly positive.


2. It’s reliable and robust 

Umbraco powers more than 700,000 websites across the world. Built on Microsoft .NET technology, it contains a range of robust security features.

Teams of experts at Umbraco HQ (based in Denmark and North Carolina) perform regular security checks to update Umbraco CMS. And they also work with third parties to make sure any critical bugs are fixed ASAP.


3. It’s free to use

As an open source platform, there are no licensing fees to use the Umbraco content management system. This means you can use an enterprise-level system for free, potentially freeing up funds to be directed into other areas of your business.
