Magento Enterprise is our weapon of choice. With the largest team of Magento Certified Plus developers worldwide, we have a proven track record in delivering large scale Magento implementations that enable our clients to realise the greatest return on their investment.
Our experience in eCommerce stems back to the late 90’s. Much of our work relied on bespoke solutions, designed for each customer’s requirements. Our early CMS platform offered an affordable entry into eCommerce and was chosen by brands such as JVC, Polaroid and Hitachi for it’s modular design, integration features and customisable user interface.
Our decision to adopt a third party eCommerce platform was driven by a number of factors. We required an enterprise level solution that was very strong in the areas of catalogue management, merchandising, personalisation, segmentation, content management, loyalty and multi-channel retailing. It was also important that the platform provided flexible integration options with the leading eco-system products, third party systems and market places.
It had built a good reputation as an upcoming eCommerce platform
It had developed a loyal following of developers through the open source Community Edition
The Enterprise version offered an affordable entry point for businesses who were serious about their eCommerce future
It was based on PHP and offered a lower cost of ownership to it’s Java based competitors
Clients maintain ownership of the solution and are not locked to any particular solution integrator
Over the past 4 years we have extended the Magento framework to incorporate suite of custom modules that drastically improve both functionality and performance. Our code stack takes Magento to the next level and creates a competitive advantage for our customers by providing them with access to the tools and features needed to execute a ‘best of breed’ omni channel strategy.
Magento Enterprise is inherently a desktop centric solution - it has its own patterns and front-end practises which make developing a responsive website complex and time consuming. We have pioneered the way for responsive design by re-architecting Magento’s CSS framework to support creative freedom and supreme performance.
We have extended Magento’s standard checkout process to support a robust ‘click and collect’ process comparable to the more expensive omni-channel platforms like Hybris and Demandware. This module also features an option to accommodate the specific needs of a franchise business model.
Anyone who has attempted to implement subscription ordering on Magento understands the limitations of the native functionality -recurring orders are limited to a single product on a per order basis, PayPal express is the only payment option supported (not available in Australia) and the order management functionality available to the customer is very restricted. Our robust subscription module provides an intuitive user experience and streamlines the management process. We have also fully integrated the solution with both SecurePay and eWay to ensure PCI compliance in relation to credit card storage and payment processing.
Our highly optimised single step checkout process incorporates a number of value added features to streamline the user experience and improve conversions. This module supports a responsive design, contains mobile optimised input fields, allows users to create an account post checkout, overcomes PayPal rounding issues, supports DPID validation, integrates with advanced freight calculators, eliminates unnecessary fields, features a post checkout survey and integrates with leading payment gateways and fraud protection tools. The checkout can be easily customised to accommodate the specific requirements of your business and is available in a number different design layouts.
Our robust site search module delivers functionality comparable to SLI and Celebros at a fraction of the cost. The native Magento integration with SOLR does not take advantage of the features available. Our comprehensive integration utilises the power of SOLR v 4.5 to support a semantic site search across all website assets - categories, products, pages, blocks, widgets, blogs and stores. It is continually learning from past activity to generate accurate results that improve conversions. All indexed search results are stored in memory to ensure near instant load times.
Magento is renowned for its powerful attribute management and faceted search. We have taken this fantastic solution to the next level by developing a robust extension that utilises SOLR v4.5 to deliver enhanced functionality and exceptional performance. We started by overcoming the fundamental issue of unfriendly URL parameters that pose duplicate content issues. We architected the module to leverage Magento’s full page cache and support multi-select options across all attributes. This provides the added benefit of SEO friendly landing pages for dynamic filter combinations. Best of all, the module does not rely on any third party extensions that compromise performance and scalability.
