We are Team Easy Updates ManagerBased in the UK, we love creating the tools that over 3 million WordPress sites rely on!
Our aim is for Easy Updates Manager is to “just work” – elegantly and effectively. To do this, it needs a solid foundation. Advances in features must not be through “quick hacks”, but through a base that can support users and all the different things they want to do for years ahead.
We never hear from the vast majority of our users on any of our plugins; they “just work” for them. But, where users do have issues and questions, we’re committed to timely support provided by our knowledgeable software engineers rather than by drones who are just following a script.
For years, Easy Updates Manager has pioneered unique features in managing WordPress site, such as enable and disable updates, automatic updates and ability to configure core, plugin and theme updates individually.
The Easy Updates Manager Story
Easy Updates Manager is a world-leading WordPress update management plugin, with over a million downloads (from wordpress.org), and over 100,000 active installs.
Since January 2018, it has been owned and run by UpdraftPlus, the creators of the world’s number one WordPress backup plugin. Easy Updates Manager was created by Matthew Sparrow and Ronald Huereca around 3 years ago out of the desire to simplify the update process, removing the need for tedious login and manual requests to updates. It also allows to disable updates of custom developed plugins and themes. With Easy Updates Manager users benefit from a plugin that automatically updates WordPress website to keep it up to date and bug free. The plugin quickly proved popular, and enjoyed glowing reviews. Eventually, Matthew Sparrow and Ronald Huereca decided that they lacked the necessary time and resources to carry out all of their ambitions for Easy Updates Manager’s expansion and was grateful for UpdraftPlus offer of an acquisition.
After acquiring the plugin, the team at UpdraftPlus committed itself to increasing Easy Updates Manager’s pace of development, giving it a new breath of life by making improvements and adding features that would further enhance its capabilities. Their latest release of the plugin already involves a complete re-factoring of its internals, a modernised and solidified foundation for future improvements.
This, however, is just the beginning. Ultimately, UpdraftPlus is committed to ensuring that Easy Updates Manager goes from strength to strength, and that it remains the best and most popular way to automatically update WordPress websites.
