BRISBANE, Queensland—Nov. 16, 2021 — WP Engine, the world’s most trusted WordPress technology company, today announced The Code Company as its first strategic partner in the Asia-Pacific region. With a team across Australia, The Code Company is a specialist technical agency that helps media companies discover the best way to build, operate and monetise their publishing platforms with WordPress.
With over 5,000 agencies worldwide, WP Engine’s global Agency Partner Program (APP), the largest in WordPress, helps agencies of all sizes use the world’s favorite CMS to grow their business by driving creative, engaging experiences that deliver clear impact for their clients. WP Engine Asia-Pacific experienced 47% growth in agency partners in 2020.
“We are incredibly proud to recognise The Code Company as our first strategic partner in the region,” said Mark Randall, Vice President of Sales APAC for WP Engine. “In the dozens of solutions we’ve partnered on together, I’m proud of the best-in-class enterprise WordPress solutions we’ve built for our joint clients. The Code Company team’s inventive solutions deliver clear and compelling results for clients helping to modernise their technology stack, obtain greater creative flexibility and most of all, grow their digital publishing business.”
“Two of the greatest fears of any digital publisher involve their site crashing under traffic spikes, or worse, having their site hacked or compromised” said Ben May, Managing Director at The Code Company. “This is why we don’t hesitate to recommend WP Engine. Having a partner that takes great care in our clients’ site performance, stability and security means we can focus on delivering value.”
Customer Case Studies
The Code Company’s clients include eBay Ads, Mumbrella, Nine Entertainment, Drive.com.au, Private Media, Her Campus, God Save The Points and the GFG Alliance.
- eBay Ads – eBay Ads is the central hub for advertising on the eBay global marketplace. Up until 2020, the business had no centralised platform and some regions operated from individual landing pages. The Code Company created a frictionless digital experience that helped bring the global brand of eBay Ads to life, with SEO in mind.
- Nine Entertainment – After the historic merger of Fairfax Media, and with an ambitious timeline before the annual upfronts, Nine needed to release a new corporate website to reflect the direction of the new brand and a unified message. The Code Company migrated their old site from Sitecore to WordPress and developed a data model for one of the largest and most complex media businesses in Australia. The end result was a WordPress native solution that allows Nine’s internal team to manage their business unit’s complex structure with relative ease.
