Why use Heartcore?Why use

Umbraco Heartcore is the same Umbraco you know and love but allow its data to be used on any device with an internet connection. There is a great article on the pros and cons of Heartcore here Umbraco Headless In brief, you can use your Umbraco data on any device. For example if you have multiple different points of sale devices, you could keep your product and customer information structured with Umbraco and use Headless to allow the data to be served to your various devices


Umbraco for every device now? But can you not use

Umbraco comes in two parts, the Umbraco part and the website part. What you need for point of sales devices, smart watches is just the website part and the data from the Umbraco part. Heartcore provides this.


Our greatest asset is being able to have complex technical discussions with specialists and translate that information into plain English that everyone can understand.

We also understand that technical people often get pigeon holed into 'do this and don't ask questions' which leads to people not thinking about the actual problem.  By keeping a flat organisational structure and removing 'project management' as much as possible we always look at the problem from 'how does this solution solve a business problem and move things forward, both for the us and our client'.  Reframing the problem in this manner, we are able to look at problem from a business and technical perspective recommend different approaches, the various trade-offs of each one free from any constraints.

Our technology speciality is Sitecore, Umbraco and .NET and we help companies build digital solutions and providing our wealth of experience and insights in delivering complex IT projects in the form of bespoke consultancy and CTO as a service. 

Jigital have over a decades experience delivering complex 'enterprise' level digital solutions leveraging Sitecore and Umbraco for clients all over the world
