The most common business cases we encountered are:
- Official company website — the client can use the CMS to control the content presented on their website. No IT team is necessary to make content-related changes.
- Intranet — an internal network for the client’s employees, entirely managed by their organisation.
- E-commerce — an online shop with a sophisticated shopping cart and integrations with multiple payment systems.
- Advanced search engine — Umbraco utilises Examine as its search and index engine. We can extend and develop this feature to provide a complex search system with multiple parameters and operators. The client can use it as a part of client-facing website or in an internal data repository.
