We're a veteran Sitecore partner.
We were an early adopter of Sitecore’s CMS when it first arrived in the U.S. market in the mid-2000s. We’ve grown with Sitecore to become the largest Sitecore certified solution partner in North America with more than 50 Sitecore Certified developers on staff. We’ve performed more than 90 enterprise-level Sitecore implementations and completed hundreds of Sitecore-related projects.
Velir is one of 13 partners (out of a field of hundreds) in North America to be awarded Platinum partner status. Sitecore's Platinum partners deliver on a complete vision for customer experience management at scale. Sitecore works closely with Platinum Implementation Partners to build joint business plans, provide guidance on market and technology developments, and share information and strategies through early release programs and Global Leadership briefings.
Sitecore Partner Specializations
In a field of over 1,000 partners globally, only a small fraction of Sitecore partners have demonstrated going above and beyond with related technologies. These platinum partners are recognized as having achieved specialization status. Velir is proud to be one of two agencies in the world to be awarded all six specializations offered by Sitecore:
Customer Engagement Platform (CEP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Email Campaign Management (ECM), Mobile, Social Media, E-Commerce (Ecomm).
Sitecore MVP Awards
Each year, Sitecore evaluates the developer community and hand-picks those who stand out from the crowd. It’s impressive to have one Sitecore MVP on your team — there are currently over 8,000 Sitecore certified developers in the world. We are proud to have 6 of our developers be recognized by Sitecore with "MVP status" since becoming a partner. In 2015, we received our first Digital Strategist Sitecore MVP.
"The Sitecore MVP Award celebrates the most active Sitecore community members from around the world who provide invaluable contributions by solving problems and discovering new ways to transform technology."
Sitecore Site of the Year Awards
Each year, the Sitecore gods hand down the coveted “Sitecore Site of the Year” awards. Many sites are considered, few are nominated, and only the best win. We owe much of the credit to our amazing clients, who made the following awards possible:
Velir's Sitecore Services
There are no limits as to what’s possible with Sitecore. Below is a list of some common services we provide to our Sitecore clients. We also provide best-in-class Sitecore support services to oversee your ongoing web and CMS operations. We have a full staffed team of analysts and developers dedicated to supporting your Sitecore website and server infrastructure, available on-demand.
First-time Sitecore Implementations
Your first Sitecore implementation is the most important. It lays the foundation for all of your future web operations. You need a trusted partner that has experience implementing your custom solution with the future in mind. We have performed over sixty enterprise-level Sitecore implementations, and we’ve completed hundreds of Sitecore-related projects.
Sitecore CMS Audits & Rescues
Even the most well planned strategy and creative for a new website can fall apart if the implementation doesn’t include an equally strong solution architecture, integration of third-party technologies, and a focus on optimizing the experience for the Author or Marketer. If you have a Sitecore solution that is under-performing, our leading Sitecore-certified team can conduct an in-depth CMS audit to identify where the issues are and get your website back on track.
Sitecore Digital Marketing System
Sitecore’s not just a CMS any more, it’s a full blown Customer Engagement Platform. With the Sitecores Customer Experience Platform (CEP) and supporting Sitecore xDB, organizations can realize the power of marketing engagement automation. Our teams have implemented high-value Sitecore CEP and xDB solutions for clients who require more sophistication out of their digital marketing presence.
Sitecore Content Migrations
These days, most organizations have existing content and related digital assets that are either residing in an old CMS, or scattered about disparate systems at your company. We have the skills and the staff needed to safely migrate all your web essentials over to Sitecore. We have a library of custom scripts, tools, and a proven methodology to tackle any migration.
Sitecore System Integrations
Enterprise web solutions need more than just a CMS to operate. Most websites rely on various other systems or databases to create a seamless experience for the end users. Our Sitecore solutions are designed with extensibility and flexibility in mind. Whether we need to hook into your CRM, E-commerce, Billing, or other mission critical system, we use Sitecore as the hub that ties it all together. We’ve performed some of the largest and most complex Sitecore integrations — many of which involved dozens of sub-systems.
Multilingual Sitecore Solutions
Many of our clients run global operations and their web content reaches audiences all over the world. As a CMS that originated in Europe over a decade ago, Sitecore’s inherent multilingual capabilities are proven and have a reputation for being the best in the industry. Although Sitecore is well-equipped, a proper multilingual implementation requires a partner with experience designing complex information architectures.
Sitecore Print Experience Manager (PXM)
We are proud to be the first (and one of the few) Sitecore partners to implement Sitecore’s Adaptive Print Studio (APS) - now named Print Experience Manager (PXM). PXM allows your CMS to act as the absolute system of record for all of your content, both digital and print. Through a tight integration with Adobe InDesign, rest assured that your content will remain consistent across all of your channels. PXM typically generates significant ROI for companies who are currently duplicating efforts by managing content in two locations — one for web, and one for print. With PXM, you can do it all in one place — Sitecore.
Sitecore Training Services
While Sitecore is an extremely user-friendly CMS, there are concepts that are specific to Sitecore that administrators should be familiar with, and conventions that editors and other users should be aware of. Velir's Sitecore certified resources host ongoing training sessions throughout projects to ensure that your staff is ready to hit the ground running.
