When we started WholeGrain Digital in 2007, we were London’s first specialist WordPress agency.

Eight years later and amongst increased competition, we continue to grow and are thriving! We currently work with more than 300 clients ranging from lifestyle businesses to big brands like Rightmove, the UK’s largest property rental portal.

All of these brands trust us with their websites, and they demand that their sites are reliable and secure. We partnered with WP Engine to help us support these objectives amidst our continued growth.

We find many clients have been burned before by agencies that sold them custom and commercial CMS’ and then locked them in to hosting with them too. It is therefore important for us, and our clients, that we host sites with a WordPress specialist like WP Engine. Our relationship with WP Engine is a true collaborative partnership. It enables us to work effectively together and leverage WP Engine’s technology and support to ensure our clients’ sites are fast, reliable, and secure.

We build strong relationships with our clients and we earn their trust by always giving them honest, impartial advice. Hosting is important, and it’s one area where our customers rely on our experience. It’s not just about recommending a hosting company, but working with our customers to ensure that we understand their exact needs and can identify the right solution for them.

Working with WP Engine was a no brainer for us, they’re WordPress specialists and create an environment of close collaboration, which means we work together to find solutions to our clients’ technical challenges and create great outcomes for our customers.

Working with WP Engine’s team of WordPress specialists, coupled with access to award-winning technical expertise and best practices, gives WholeGrain Digital a competitive advantage in its industry and enables the agency to deliver incredible digital experiences for their clients.
