If you are in the ecommerce space, you will have likely seen the release of Magento 2.0 which is set to revolutionise the way we manage ecommerce. An enhanced version of its predecessor, the new platform provides a far more scalable solution that is easier to maintain. The new system ensures a better conversion rate and greater overall user experience to that seen in Magento 1. A vastly improved admin panel has also been included to simplify the day-to-day management. Magento 2 is an essential upgrade for any existing Magento merchant.
Migrations & Upgrades
If you are on Magento 1, you will be considering migrating your store to Magento 2 in order to retain ease of upgrade and future proof your business. Many merchants will be making this move over the coming months. Having been through this exercise many times with our clients, we draw on hands-on experience to make it a painless exercise. Migration and upgrades are carried out by our in-house team, ensuring we take a cautious approach – testing and reviewing the connectors within your store before, during and after the process.
Magento 2 is still a new platform. Like the first edition, the ‘out of the box’ solution is built for the general market. What sets great stores apart and pulls the conversion up is the upgrades and adjustments that we are aware of and constantly test for. This is the core reason we refer to Loudon Design as conversion led – there’s a lot more to what we do than creating great-looking websites.
Ecommerce is unlike any other design area in that it is benchmarked like a sales team. The website has Key Performance Indicators and owners understandably expect a positive return for these large investments.
Do you have a CRM? EPOS? Payment gateways that you must have on your new store? We specialise in custom integrations with third party backend solution providers. Our development team are well versed in the mainstream extensions and fully up to speed when it comes to connecting the dots from Magento 2’s core and the various systems merchants need to operate their business seamlessly. The key to increased revenue in ecommerce is high degrees of automation, so we focus on helping our customers take advantage of the available integrations that achieve this aim.
Magento 2 offers a substantial increase in performance over its predecessor. The performance is improved by the presence of a separate database for order processing, increased browser rendering, smarter image compression and static content caching.
