Firefly Sitecore Accelerator
Introducing Firefly

Reduce Development Time from MONTHS to WEEKS

How?  Most websites share the same general components.  To accelerate development, Engagency has developed a method to rapidly build and deploy new CMS implementations using pre-built functionality such as a blogs and search, pre-build page types such as articles, landing page, and events; and a selection of pre-built content modules such as embedded video. 

Firefly contains all the top things that people have asked us to create over and over for the past 10 years. It provides a great starting point while still leaving plenty of room for your site's unique requirements.

The Benefits of Using Firefly
Fast
Core functionality is in place. So the project focus shifts to applying design, customizations, and migrating content.
Affordable
The cost is a fraction of what it would cost to start from scratch. It’s like starting with a WordPress template, but getting the full features of Sitecore
Adaptable
Starts with a gray-scale version of key functionality and then enables a design pattern to be applied on top of it. This allows for design and branding flexibility.

The Firefly Process

What Our Clients Have To Say

Profile Card Example
"We struggled for almost a year to find the right team who could help us move forward. From the moment we met [Engagency], it was very clear that they had a solid ethos for how they developed web applications. They had a real discipline around how they built and tested things. That was a great signal from the start that they would be a strong partner."

VP of Digital & Performance Marketing
Consulting Firm

Profile Card Example
"It was awesome because [Engagency] didn’t have any idea what sort of backend modules or fields they needed to build until they saw the finished product. It’s a tough job to build out a site when the creative team is asking you to make it look identical to the designs they made without any knowledge of how it worked on the backend."

Website Manager
Consulting Firm

Profile Card Example
"We needed a bespoke solution with custom components and an elegant design that could convey the maturity of the content in a detailed way. It also required a fair amount of sophistication in terms of the analytics and curation we wanted to support. It required someone that with intimate knowledge of Sitecore and how it could be used to support what we wanted. That’s what encouraged [our agency] to bring [Engagency] onto the project."
