Coding. Tech Architecture. Front-End Development. And A Robot To Boot.
At One North, we live at the intersection of marketing and technology. We’ve made it our mission to empower our clients to find the right balance among the two in order to create compelling digital experiences that strengthen their most important relationships.
We bring a best-of-breed technology approach to every engagement and work to create a marketing technology ecosystem that caters to each client’s unique needs and goals. From Content Management and Experience Platforms, to Marketing Automation and Hosting, we help our B2B and Professional Services clients ensure the technologies they use seamlessly work together to power their marketing efforts.
Our teams partner closely with clients to ensure our recommendations are always in tune with business strategy and technology innovation, and they guide clients on how best to simplify the process, optimize their efforts and enhance their brand experiences.
One North is a Platinum Partner and key player in the Sitecore community. With 30+ Sitecore certifications, our team of developers, strategists and account managers help clients get the most out of their Sitecore investment.
We’ve partnered with Microsoft to develop a hosting environment within Azure specifically for Sitecore websites. With hundreds of applications hosted in the cloud environment, we are a leading provider of hosted applications within Microsoft Azure.
Our teams have also built more than 40 digital experiences – websites, blogs and microsites – utilizing Open Source technology, including WordPress and Keystone (node.js).
When our clients tell us they’re invested in their digital brand experience, we know that means they’re also concerned with its availability and evolution. That’s why we have a team dedicated to ensuring the applications we provide continuously perform and thrive.
One North offers ongoing improvement and managed hosting services that provide a worry-free, predictable and high-touch experience for our clients. We go beyond simply “hosting” applications. Our configuration management process provides the necessary flow of information amongst application, hosting and deployment teams and allows for seamless troubleshooting and support.
Whether we designed and developed a client’s Sitecore application ourselves, or its ongoing management was transferred to our team, we provide exceptional service to keep it growing. Clients rest easy knowing that our developers are familiar with their code base, our hosting architects are constantly working to protect the servers that keep their applications running and our deployment engineers are ready to install any necessary changes along the way.
