Move to the best solution

To be aware of buyers’ preferences, it’s vital to ensure that your online store operates
quickly, while looking modern and being intuitive to use. You should keep track of trends
in customer experience, to make sure your shop grabs attention, allowing customers
to navigate easily, and in a profitable way. If it’s time for you to modernize the former
interface
of your online store and fill it with more functional features,
Magento 2 migration is a great choice.

Why upgrade to Magento2?

  • Prestory

    Initially, design flexibility was the keynote forte of Magento 1. Users could compound and integrate modules as they desired, regardless of site structure recommendations. However, this wasn’t so user-friendly, resulting in poor performance. ‘Magento Slow’ was the most frequent complaint. In response to this, an improved version was released. This fact prompts an obvious reason for Magento 2 migration.

  • Now

    The number of security patches and extensions to Magento 1 is diminishing day by day; soon, you’ll wake up to see that your online store is a relic of a bygone age. From Nov 2018, Magento 1 won’t be supported and no security issues will be patched. Hence, if you aim to develop your business and be on top of your game, you need to consider upgrading to the latest Magento version now.

When is the best time to consider Magento 2 migration?

If you’re asking ‘Should I upgrade to Magento 2?’, think about your customers and try to imagine the experience they’d most enjoy, while surfing your site. In facilitating their usage, you’ll facilitate your business goals. Perhaps you need to fix or change something within your existing website…

  • Acquire modern
    marketing tools

    The tech world is always moving onwards. New features need a renewed base for installation. Former functionality isn’t sufficient to solve new challenges. You need something ground-breaking. However, the newest tools require the latest software. In this case, a Magento update is necessary.

  • Boost
    performance

    If your previous version is demonstrating low performance, working slowly, and becoming overloaded, it’s fatal for overall site operation. This can lead to bad SEO ranking and poor customer behavior. If your customers aren’t visiting your store regularly, it’ll damage your discoverability and your business. Magento 2 will help solve this.

  • Strengthen your
    security shield

    Former versions are vulnerable to hackers, who can interfere with the code and harm your business. Improving on previous versions, Magento 2 has solid defenses, preventing data theft (such as access to credit cards and other personal information). It offers better security.

  • Gain
    support

    The Magento community is enthusiastically improving the CMS. However, only Magento 2 is supported, helping you find solutions to possible malfunctions. Previous Magento versions don’t offer this greatly expanded technical support.
