Umbraco & Ucommerce
Content Management and e-commerce hand in hand - the best of both worlds
What is Ucommerce for Umbraco
Ucommerce is a webshop package for the Open Source CMS Umbraco, merging a popular and free Content Management System for .NET with a powerfull e-Commerce framework, thus giving you the best of both worlds.
The Ucommerce philosophy
The Ucommerce platform is built by people with many years experience in building enterprise class e-Commerce solutions. After realizing that no two e-Commerce projects are the same and what we really needed was some fleksible and customizable tools to build solutions with, we started developing Ucommerce based on our Framework First philosophy.
This means that instead of trying to build one huge platform that suits every need, each feature in Ucommerce is built as a basic "tool" that you can use out-of-the-box, or choose to customize or rewrite to suit the needs of your particular project.
But not only is Ucommerce built as a set of tools that will seriously cut down on development time, we also have a full featured demo store that you can start out with, thus cutting many initial man hours off a project.
What is Umbraco
Umbraco is a .NET based open source content management system with the flexibility to run anything from small brochure sites right through to complex applications for Fortune 500's and high volume websites.
It is known as "The Friendly CMS" because of its simple yet powerfull backend that editors love, and an absolutely amazing community surrounding it. Oh, and it is Open Source meaning free!
Why choose the Ucommerce and Umbraco combination?
Content editors love Umbraco. There is no "bells & whistles", no disturbing colors or no bloated features. Yet it is extremely powerfull, easy to use and very easy to expand. After being introduced to Umbraco Web Content Editors usually go: "Is that it? That's easy! And I can manage everything now!".
Although excisting within its own section in Umbraco, the integration between Umbraco and Ucommerce is seamless. In fact when we have done usability testing of our backend and asked people if they noticed when switching between the two systems or section, they usually answer: "There's a difference? I didn't notice".
Even though Umbraco is a free product and Ucommerce is commercial, our free version is so powerfull that it can power almost everything. And because of our flexible framework/API you can customize how you use our product just as much as with an Open Source product, and this includes our Free version.
