Simon Antony Limited are very pleased and proud to announce we are now an Umbraco Gold Partner and were in fact the first to qualify in the North West of England - see full details of the certification on Umbraco.com

Taking it to the next level

Being an Umbraco Gold Partner is a big commitment, especially for a small company like ours. For larger companies, it's easy for them to throw a few £££'s at registration, have some certified developers and get the badge. However for Simon Antony, it's more about developing a culture. It means that not only do we have a qualified in-house team with a proven track record as successful Umbraco level 1&2 developers, but also that we've staked money into Umbraco to ensure that Umbraco succeeds as a business.

Going 'Gold' is key to the continued success of our business - we rely upon Umbraco work and we do it very well. Like a lot of other Certified Umbraco Partner development specialists, we have direct access to a wide range of advice and support within the large Umbraco open source community and now with Gold credentials, this expands to having direct contact with key Umbraco staff within Umbraco HQ itself. We even have unlimited access to Umbraco tools and add-ons that we now take advantage of in our products and sites we provide.

For you and your business, this means increased efficiency and access to a knowledge base that extends far beyond the walls of our offices in Stockport.

At the time of writing, there are only 38 Worldwide and none in the North West - until now

As it stands (July 2014), there are only 38 Umbraco Gold Partners worldwide and 13 of those are in the UK (including us)!!!

Being an Umbraco Gold Partner is very important to us as a company and it's something we take very seriously. At the time of writing, we are the only known Umbraco Gold Partner in the Greater Manchester Area (UK July 2014). 

Gold Partner Benefits

Using an Umbraco Gold Partner means you will have the assurance of a team well versed in Umbraco development and have extensive experience implementing Umbraco websites. The table below also shows you all the other benefits that we can take advantage of and these will automatically pass through to yourselves and your projects.

Gold Certified Partners have direct access to support & architectural advice from Umbraco themselves. Should we find ourselves in a situation or project that we cannot find an answer or solution for, we can hook directly into Umbraco HQ and can request bug-fixes under a guaranteed SLA - how's that for service!

Being a Gold Certified Partner also gives us unrivalled access to all the Umbraco Professional tools such as Contour (Forms on steroids), Courier (deployments made easy) and Concierge (health monitoring of your website) at a much-reduced cost.
