    Leading Global E-commerce Platform

    Magento 2

    Magento is an open source e-commence platform built in PHP which was originally launched in March of 2008. Its launch proved to be a bit of a game changer as before this date most e-commerce platforms were exploring the licensing business model, whilst Magento, being open source was basically free to develop.

    Over the years various updates and upgrades were rolled out to Magento with enhanced features and security protection, but this changed on November 17, 2015, when Magento 2.0 was released. Rather than being a further upgrade of the original Magento platform, Magento 2 was a complete revamp of the structure and functionality, taking it to the next level. Magento 2 is now one the leading e-commerce platforms globally, with an estimated 250,000 websites using the various versions of Magento.

    If you are thinking about a new product/e-commerce driven website, you want to upgrade and provide on-line sales, or you are not happy with your current platform or provider, then get in touch with us here at Piranha Digital for an honest chat and competitive quote.

    E-commerce UX/UI

    Web Design

    A good Magento website can be a great Magento website when outstanding creativity is sympathetically incorporated into the web build. At Piranha we have a dedicated team of interface designers who work alongside the Magento developers to design and create Magento websites that are carefully crafted to appeal to the target audience and drive conversions through the website, whether this is online sales, product enquiries or the start of a long term business relationship.

    Our design process always starts with an initial briefing meeting, looking at the objectives, the brand, corporate tone, colour schemes, product ranges and a review of direct online competitors. From this initial briefing, our creative team develops visuals and styles for all sections of website, focussing on usability, the customer experience and brand integrity. Working closely with the individuals creating the content, the designers arrive at the final structure and designs ready for the Magento 2 developers to work their magic.

    Piranha Digital first started developing Magento e-commerce websites in mid-2009 not long after the first official launch in November 2008.

    We knew Magento 2 was imminent, and after allowing a short bedding in period and assessing the availability and reliability of extensions, integrations and plugins, started developing in Magento 2 in 2016. Since this date, all our Magento design, build and development projects are done in Magento 2.

    Benefits Of Magento 2 Over Magento 1

    Magento 2 has improved performance and scalability – Magento 2 has an enhanced indexer that helps to increase its query performance speed. The indexing is a process used to convert merchant data, such as prices, by creating index tables and updating them regularly to improve the performance of the web store. Magento 2 also uses Varnish cache, which makes it easy to cache requests. This enables more than one admin users to create and edit product information.

    • Improves efficiency of backend operations

    Additional Benefits of Magento 2

    Magento 2 has an Improved Checkout Process

    With over 60% of users reportedly abandoning checkouts, this is a real key improvement in Magento 2 which has a greatly improved checkout process. Also, shipping, review and payments are displayed on two different pages. This simplifies the checkout process and improves customer experience. In addition, Magento 2 also provides a way for visitors to be recognised as guests.

    Magento 2 is Mobile Friendly

    In response to the growth in mobile browsing, Magento 2 is more mobile friendly and fully responsive, further improving the experience of website users viewing the site on mobiles and tablets. The Magento 2 admin panel is also touch-screen friendly. This makes it easy to manage the Magento store using a mobile phone or tablet.

Magento 2 is easy to upgrade. The upgrade helps to improve e-commerce security and the experience for your customers.

    Our Conclusion at Piranha Digital

    There are many e-commerce platforms to choose from, but for us and our clients, in most cases Magento 2 ticks all the right boxes. It is licence-free (lower cost) it is flexible so we can design and build websites ‘on brand’ and it certainly packs a punch when it comes to advanced features.

    The fact that it so widely used is another great benefit because the wider website development community is developing and releasing independent tools and features that can be incorporated into the Magento core at relatively low cost. If you want a website at a fraction of the cost of a bespoke build but with most of the features of sites costing £millions, then Magento 2 is for you.

    Is it now time for you to upgrade to Magento 2 so that you can benefit from all these features?
