Award-winning projects

It’s great when your hard work gets compliments from clients. But being recognized on a professional level also brings a lot of joy! At our office, we’ve got a huge pink “Tree of Fame”. We hang there every award, medal, certificate or other prize as a constant reminder that our efforts are worth it.

Here are some of the awards we’re especially proud of:



Umbraco Awards 2020

Best Custom Solution for three years in a row

This year, Perplex won two Umbraco Awards with Athlon’s international content platform: the Best Gold Partner Solution and the Best Custom Solution. This makes us the only company in the world having won the Best Custom Solution for three years in a row!

Dirkzwager is the most visited

According to a recent research among the top 50 law firms in the Netherlands, Dirkzwager is placed on number 14 when it comes to the number of lawyers working there. But Dirkzwager’s website is by far the most visited from the list! Furthermore, the top position is thanks to the monthly visits from unpaid search results.

How did we achieve this?

Two awards for WPD

During the Umbraco conference Codegarden in 2019, the website of Wagenborg Passagiersdiensten (WPD) got not one, but two awards. According to the jury, it’s the perfect example of a full-service platform so it deserves the Best Custom Solution award. What an honor!

Best Gold Partner Solution

The Best Gold Partner award also went to the WPD’s website. In this category, the jury compares the entries of the Umbraco Gold Partners and gives the award to the most impressive case. This award is a great recognition of our hard work. Curious to see what makes the WPD platform so special? Read the case!

The accessible website of VieCuri

In 2016, VieCuri became the first hospital meeting the accessibility standards in the Netherlands. We optimized the website taking into consideration the official accessibility guidelines and, after performing an audit, the Dutch Accessibility Foundation rewarded it with the “Drempelvrij” (in English: “without barriers”) certification mark.

Umbraco’s MVP

Daniël and Jeffrey were both honored with the Umbraco’s MVP (Most Valuable Person) title. And we’re so proud of them! Jeffrey is Umbraco’s MVP for three years in a row – that’s quite an achievement as there are only 15 MVPs in this community with more than 220k members!

But how come there are two Perplex’ers among the MVPs worldwide? Among the reasons is the fact that Perplex developed the Security Package: an Umbraco extension that enables users to view login and account-related activities. This contributes to Umbraco's general level of security and makes it easier to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

ChangeMyCar wins the Fleet Industry Award!

ChangeMyCar won the coveted Fleet Industry Award! The award is given annually during the Fleet Europe Summit in Barcelona to an organization that offers remarkable and innovative products, tools or services. It’s the most important award in the field of fleet management.

Best Custom Solution award

with the Mercedes-Benz Midlayer

We built a complicated connection between the various Mercedes-Benz databases within Umbraco. This allows the users to assemble a car by themselves and see the result in the preview module.

Best Editing Experience award

with Dirkzwager’s platform

The platform tracks whether the preset conversion goals are achieved and gives valuable insights to the users. The algorithm translates the data into a conversion ratio which stimulates the lawyers to write better articles.

at Codegarden 2017

One of the standard functionalities in Umbraco is creating web forms. Perplex created a plugin that upgrades this module, making it even more effective and easy-to-use.
