The open-source CMS vendor hopes to go beyond just a content offering by acquiring commerce solution Vendr and Backoffice UI builder Konstrukt as part of the deal.

“We believe that in order for Umbraco to stay relevant we need to look beyond just content. We want to be able to offer a powerful commerce offering that is well-integrated with Umbraco and that can be added to Umbraco projects where needed. And we believe Vendr to be just that,” said Kim Sneum Madsen, CEO at Umbraco.

Elsewhere, Progress has released the latest version of its Sitefinity CMS, Payload CMS has been releasing several new features as part of its Launch Week, and there are more than a few industry events on the way in the coming weeks.

“I’m super excited for the future of Vendr in the hands of Umbraco, taking the product we have nurtured and giving it the opportunity to grow and realize its full potential.”
