Migration to Magento
We are often been engaged to upgrade, improve and integrate existing Magento stores and we can quickly convert stores built on other ecommerce platforms to the Magento platform as older systems become outdated or unsupported. We offer a number of services to on-board clients to the Magento e-commerce platform.
If you have an existing Magento build but can't get active support, or have a core code system that has been overwritten that is stopping you from upgrading please give us a call, as we can often fix things within a few days and get you back up and running on the latest version of the software. We can also offer simple SLA's and hosting to keep it all running smoothly too.
Hosting must be right with Magento for it to run properly. There are a number of settings that need to be configured on the server for your store to run quickly. Dedicated hosting is the only real option for serious traders. We can scope and support all types of Magento hosting and are pioneers in the UK for reliable and effective cloud hosting of the Magento solution on Rackspace Cloud Servers. As a silver partner to Rackspace and UKFast we can negotiate attractive pricing for our clients in mutli-server dedicated or Hypervisor driven private cloud environments in London and the USA.

Magento is the smarter e-commerce solution allowing scalable integration with back end systems such as ERP and CRM. The customisation options are unparalleled with a huge variety of effective plugins available including the One Step Checkout tool that really ramps up basket to sale rates.
With search engine visibility being so important your business will need a solution that delivers. The Magento platform works to the XML site map standard and includes tools for linking up to Google Base.

Magento includes easy to use web content management tools so that anyone can add or edit content on their e-commerce website.

The Enterprise environment offers a host of extra features including instant rollback and enhanced caching to improve load times on heavy traffic implementations.

Why Choose Magento Ecommerce?
We get asked this question by a lot of clients, particularly those who engage us to update an outdated site they already have.
Quite simply we believe that Magento e-commerce is the best e-commerce solution available today. With an open source licensing model, many implementations have no licence fee making for a far more attractive period of return on investment for your e-commerce project. The Enterprise environment also allows larger SME's and Corporate clients to leverage the true scale of the Magento platform when integrating to back office systems such as MS Dynamics, Sage and Oracle and many others where a web services API is available.
Factor in fast build times, ease of use for non-technical staff with the Magento CMS in Enterprise and the range of customisation and hosting options, from dedicated servers through to cloud hosting that make Magento e-commerce truly scalable.
