Our Magnolia Services
Priocept has been working with Magnolia since 2009, and is one of only a handful of Magnolia partners in the UK. We have worked extensively with the Magnolia product suite, providing both development and consultancy services to a wide range of clients. Priocept also has considerable expertise in the Java Content Repository (JCR) and Apache Jackrabbit technologies which underpin Magnolia, having been working with JCR and Jackrabbit since 2008.
We work with clients on everything from one day of Magnolia consultancy to provide technical advice or user training, through to large implementation programmes and long term support and operation of Magnolia based websites against a formal service level agreement.
