Choosing a Sitefinity Partner - Three Things to Look For
By: Jonathan Read
Just like there are a lot of different websites and a lot of different CMSs, there are a lot of different things you can do with Sitefinity. If e-commerce is going to be an integral part of your company’s site, it’s important to find a Sitefinity partner that not only knows how to handle it, but has experience tackling the challenges that come up in development and deployment. The same idea applies to mobile web development, third-party integration, cloud technologies, and any other must-haves that your organization knows it needs. As you’re talking with a potential Sitefinity partner, be sure that they’ve got real-world experience with the tech you need, and not just the “know-how.”
2. Partner Tier
While each Sitefinity partner is going to have its areas of strength, Sitefinity has set up a system of partner tiers to help companies considering a Sitefinity deployment choose which partner is the best fit. All Sitefinity partners meet a certain standard of quality, but the partner tiers give you a good idea of the experience each partner brings to the table. Sitefinity’s partner tiers are determined by a number of factors, including the number of sites built in Sitefinity, the number of clients currently working with the partner, and the number of Sitefinity certified developers working with each partner.
