"Torchbox is a top notch agency that has developed the best CMS (Wagtail) I've worked with in my career, and I've been using content management systems for over 15 years. Being able to use the same firm for both our content wrangling and implementation needs has made the process incredibly smooth. I can not recommend them highly enough."
Tim Allen, IT Director, Wharton Business School

How we're helping our clients

We’re helping the UK public sector, global tech giants and international universities implement Wagtail at scale. Here are some of the ways we are helping our clients:

1.
The UK NHS
We hosted +15 NHS technical architects and developers at our office for a NHS Wagtail sprint. We helped solve the biggest (workflow, API and infrastructure) challenges they are facing implementing Wagtail for the massive NHS.uk site.
2.
Google
We’ve hosted Google Cloud engineers at our UK offices to help run Wagtail seamlessly on Google’s internal infrastructure. Wagtail already powers several high-profile sites and Google is now running a project to standardise on Wagtail for its marketing sites.
3.
Oxfam America
We ran an intensive sprint on-site in Boston with Oxfam America’s in-house technical team. We helped set up the basic infrastructure and processes and now provide ongoing support and mentoring as they switch their CMS from Mezzanine to Wagtail.
4.
California College of the Arts
We ran several on-site sprints in California with the CCA comms and tech teams. We’re supporting with multiple projects - e.g. using Wagtail’s content API to share events and content across different Wagtail sites/intranets.
