WESTBOROUGH, MA – Wakefly, an award winning website design, development and online marketing firm, and Sitecore, the leading provider of .NET Web Content Management System (CMS) software, today announced that three .NET web developers from Wakefly have recently successfully completed the Sitecore Certified Developer training course, bringing the number of in-house Sitecore Certified developers at Wakefly to four.
By passing this extensive week long course, Wakefly’s .net web developers have proven mastery of key Sitecore concepts, tools, features, and functionality.
“This achievement for Wakefly opens up a plethora of opportunities and possibilities. Not only can we now serve more Sitecore users in delivering a turnkey CMS solution to meet their needs, but we can now also provide more expert knowledge, training and advice to our customers, all while exceeding their expectations. Both Wakefly and Wakefly’s customers benefit from this win-win situation,” says Jared Barboza, the Professional Services Manager at Wakefly, Inc.
Wakefly has already utilized their newfound expert Sitecore knowledge in the development and production of several successful Sitecore websites and redesigns for companies including Quantech, Picis, LYNX Medical, and many more!
Wakefly’s philosophy regarding building unique, custom features running on Sitecore is to do so in such a way that they become reusable for future projects, thus speeding up the development time and ultimately saving the client money. To achieve this goal, Wakefly conducts a thorough analysis of all the necessary project requirements prior to development and predicts how this new feature could benefit other clients. Wakefly then develops a plan whereby the feature may be re-used or re-utilized in other areas. For example, Wakefly built a home page slider to be used as a home page animation for one client. This feature was built with a base control that is easily configurable to be styled and applied to any page.
Sitecore redefines how organizations engage with their customers online, powering experiences that can sense and adapt to a customer’s needs to increase revenue and customer lifetime value and satisfaction. Sitecore was the first Web Content Management system (WCM) to incorporate marketing automation, intranet portal, e-commerce, Web optimization, social media and campaign management technologies into a cohesive, integrated open platform. Sitecore’s software makes it easy for businesses to identify, serve, engage and convert new customers online.
