70 people, 4 locations, 1 platform.

Our people are specialists, all focused on delivering exceptional customer experience for our clients and their customers.

Our goal is to be the best Sitecore Agency in the UK. Why? Because too many agencies build it to be just a CMS. It’s much more than that.

Sitecore is an experience platform. That’s why all aspects of our business from strategy to support is aligned to doing what’s right for the platform, empowering our customers to get the maximum value from their investment.

Our strategy is guided by the Kagool leadership team.
