A few days ago, we officially launched a new initiative we are really excited about: our Agency Partner Program. As an open source platform, collaboration is key to ensure the framework's growth but also to build a strong product and community. With that purpose in mind, we started to have some conversations and join forces with different WordPress agencies who share our vision and values.
Today, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with 10up, one of the largest WordPress-centric agencies in the world and a leader in building headless CMS experiences.
10up is a digital agency that aims to make a better web with finely crafted websites, apps, and tools for content creators, leveraging open source technologies like WordPress and React. The company's portfolio includes projects with brands such as Microsoft, Google, and Facebook.
Furthermore, 10up is also well known for its many and different contributions to open source projects, including Frontity.
In addition to the Link Component and Auto-Prefetching features, one of their most recent contributions to the framework is the ElasticPress package, which allows you to enhance your Frontity theme by supercharging the search experience with ElasticPress. You can add this functionality to your Frontity project just by installing the package, without having to modify your theme (this is one of the greatest things about Frontity's extensibility!). Kudos to 10up for their fantastic work on it!
Nowadays, publishers have a big challenge ahead of them with users demanding better experiences in the digital space. Since we launched Frontity Framework last year, dozens of WordPress publishers have asked our team about consulting services and for help on their migration to Frontity. It was great to see an increasing interest in using Frontity at an enterprise-level but, unfortunately, we didn't have an efficient way to help them all and fulfil the custom requirements these projects usually need.
One of the main goals of this partnership is to connect these companies who are looking for professional guidance with 10up's team of experts.
On the other hand, we aim to help 10up grow their business by bringing in new opportunities, support them as they work with Frontity and empower their development team. They are already familiar with Frontity but thanks to this new partnership, they'll have a deeper understanding and knowledge of what the framework is able to provide for their clients.
We're really excited to share expertise with such a great team as the one at 10up, and believe that their knowledge, strengths and contributions will have a very positive impact both on Frontity Framework and on its open source community.
When companies share the same values, they can work together to better solve challenges. This is what collaboration is about. Having the support of one of the brightest agencies in the WordPress space is not only the best way to inaugurate our Agency Partner Program but also to keep pushing our mission of helping people build websites with WordPress and React easily.
We're just getting started and can't wait to do more together!
We invite you to visit the 10up Partner Page to learn more about how they can help support your Frontity project needs. If you have any questions, feedback, or would like to know more about this partnership, do not hesitate to get in touch.
