Contact Heather

We contracted Heather to help us with an Umbraco project, she did the back-end integration while our team handled front-end dev. She started by giving us an incredibly thorough and detailed breakdown of each component. There were no surprises when it came to cost or timeline. Each week as the project progressed we had internal check-ins where she would keep us up to date on her progress and raise any concerns that may have come up. Our project had some unforeseen items come up and Heather was completely flexible and willing to do what it took to get those items hammered out. In the end, the project turned out great - we are happy, the client is happy. Our team loves working with Heather and will do it again without hesitation.

Amanda Garceau
Director of Technology, Subtext Digital

Heather's knowledge and skill with Umbraco has been critical to the ongoing satisfaction of our clients and project success. Her ability to boil down functionality requests into solutions and action items has made her an indispensable member of all my Umbraco projects.

Stewart Ellis

Heather is an innovative thinker, who sees the whole picture but takes it one piece at a time to produce a seamless end-product. She successfully created and implemented her ideas in creating several web-based communication vehicles for us at Chubb which resulted in increased profitability for a newly-created entity. Anyone who utilizes her expertise and creativity will not be disappointed.

Heather is extremely detail-oriented. Her passion and creativity ensure that she consistently delivers elegant and intelligent solutions to whatever problems or projects are brought to her table. She is able to fluidly transition between the mind-set of a marketer, a developer, a consultant and a business leader. I would be thrilled to work with her again in the future.

Valerie Zlotsky
Marketing Manager, Intermedia

Heather Floyd strikes the perfect consulting balance between delivering to your exacting specifications and offering new solutions you do not even know to ask for – yet make everything so much more efficient. Working with Heather allowed me to concentrate on business rather than wrestling with systems. Heather is highly skilled and was always ahead of the curve in possibilities to build our business. She created custom solutions for our international news agency that were so advanced they were able to be used without upgrade for the better part of a decade. We highly recommend Heather Floyd to any business looking to scale up.

Working with Heather and her team is amazing. It's one thing to create a fabulous looking website; but, for a website that sends a clear message about my business and gets me clients is artistry.

Plus, I feel Heather really understands my business, listens to my ideas, and gives me great insight on the most effective way to make it happen. She has the patience of Job for working with this computer challenged business owner.

How to Plan External Data Integrations for Your Umbraco Site

It’s extremely common for a corporate website to require integration with some sort of external data. In my work, I have encountered variations in the ways that data gets pulled-in, and the ways it gets used on-site. An important thing to remember about Umbraco is that when a site is architected properly, it works seamlessly with anything you can access through some sort of common interface – basically anything that ASP.Net can handle, Umbraco can utilize. I’ve found that there are three important questions to consider when designing your integration setup

Recommended Tools to Manage Digital Projects with Remote Team Members

Collaboration within a project team is, of course, necessary. When members of that team are geographically dispersed or include people from different organizations (for instance: freelancers, consultants, and clients), having the right tools to facilitate that collaboration efficiently is essential. Over the years of working with various teams, I have come to appreciate having certain tools available as part of any project. Ideally, your project management process includes all these tools.
