Description

The customer’s goal was to redesign and optimize the website built with Magento that would provide a solid platform for improving user experience and increasing sales revenue. Before we started, 2 companies had already worked on that project during 2 years.

Proceeding with the development, our team had to face a range of issues with slow performance and other bugs. For instance, the main page was loading more than a minute. Because of the lack of optimization, 1500+ requests were sent to the database. Our development team has decrease that amount to 100 requests without caching.
