Back in 2015, Magento 2 was launched with the promise that it would allow for a more streamlined, faster shopping experience. Performance was at the forefront of considerations when Magento 2 was developed and following a period of learning, most agencies will now only build on Magento 2 (not Magento 1.x).
Ensuring that you locate a suitable partner for your website development, particularly a Magento 2 migration is integral in ensuring the process is as smooth as possible. Having successfully launched a number of Magento 2 websites, Verve are perfectly positioned to help you with this process.
Why Should I Upgrade?
Considered as the top eCommerce solution , Magento 2 has thought of both the trader and the customer in its developers from Magento 1.x.
In comparison to Magento 1.x, the admin area of Magento 2 has a much clearer, organised menu system allowing for straightforward navigation and updates of products or text.
The customer experience in Magento 2 has been improved through overall performance and feature enhancements. In an effort to reduce abandoned carts, Magento 2 checkout provides less steps and a higher level of customisation.
Magento claims that websites in Magento 2 will load up to 50% faster than Magento 1.x versions. This can only be a positive when Google has indicated that site speed is one of the signals used to rank pages.
Full page Caching
In order to reduce loading time, full page cache is extremely beneficial to a website. This feature is particularly important for avoiding downtime during periods of high traffic
Tidy up and Streamline Processes
Unnecessary licenses and add-ons can affect load time on your website. A migration to Magento 2 provides a perfect opportunity to perform housekeeping on your website. In addition to removing unneeded extras, there may be other functionality that would assist with your businesses goals and processes.
