Migration to Magento 2
Your e-Commerce business deserves the best upgrade.
UPGRADING TO MAGENTO 2 IS A MUST NOW!
As of June 2020, Magento 1 will no longer be supported.
WHY UPGRADING SHOULD BE A PRIORITY OF YOURS:
Magento 1 no longer supports:
- Future security patches
- PCI compliance and security norms for credit cards processing industry
- New server configuration updates
- Compatibility with new extensions
- Upcoming features, such as Progressive Web Apps
- and more…
Magento 2 brings significant benefits:
- Faster website and stability
- Enhanced shopping and checkout experience
- Improved search engine
- Automated abandoned cart reminder emails
- Decreased bounce rate
- and much more!
If you were considering investing more in your Magento 1 site: please keep in mind that as of June 2020, Magento 1 has reached its “end of support” from its maker (Adobe Magento). While us, MageMontreal, will still be offering assistance to Magento 1 store owners – any investments in a Magento 1 store is not future proof, it must be for immediate benefits only. The spending in a Magento 1 store must be done knowing that this money will soon be lost, as that work will not be ported over to the new Magento 2 platform. Therefore starting to plan the migration to Magento 2 is a must.
Let us import your data and do the heavy work for you.
WHY MAGENTO 2 IS SIMPLY AWESOME
It brings a ton of improvements over its predecessor Magento 1.
The speed is better, the architecture is better, the development work is more efficient, the admin interface is much prettier and easier to use for a client.
When it was released at the end of 2015, it had bugs, a ton of them… and back then there were really few plugins, so almost everything had to be a custom job, which was not too great for the early adopters of the platform. It took a good two years for this new version 2.0 to mature into a stable platform, after 2017 and version 2.2 it’s now a truly great piece of software with pretty much all issues worked out. It’s now reliable, and there is a huge ecosystem, with a large selection of plugins and themes.All in all, this new version is a success. Nevertheless, to make Magento 2 so awesome, the makers of Magento had to break with the past and build the new platform in a very different way which is not compatible with Magento 1. Therefore a migration from version 1 to version 2 is not a simple button to click. While some stuff from your old site can often be salvaged, the project’s scope is more akin to a website revamp… with a discount. The good news is the data migration (customers, orders, etc) will be migrated in a hassle free and reliable way.
