Over a decade’s experience creating upgrading Magento online shops.
Magento 2 is a very popular, and very comprehensive ecommerce platform. As a result, It’s inevitable that bugs, or security flaws crop up from time to time. When this happens, you need to upgrade magento. The very active Magento community along with the core team work to develop fixes, which are rolled out periodically in the form of Magento patches.
We see 3-4 upgrade patches per year on average, and these often include functionality and performance improvements as well as solutions to bugs. So in addition to fixing issues, you typically get extra bells and whistles for your shop!
Updating your website can be very straight forward, however it largely depends on what extensions/add-ons your website currently uses. The closer Magento 2 is to it’s vanilla package, the easier it will generally be to upgrade, as extensions can sometimes cause conflicts, or fail to work when major updates are applied.
As part of your upgrade process, we will create a staging environment for your website, on which we will implement the updated patch. We will then report back on any add-on conflicts and advise if there is any cost to replace / update them.
After a thorough check by both our experts and your team, and once all parties are happy, we will propose a date/time to roll out the changes to your live website (typically outside of main business hours). Throughout the entire process we take regular backups, to ensure full recovery should any problems arise.
While not technically an upgrade, our team have conducted plenty of migrations from the old Magento 1, to Magento 2 platform.
Our team can help you to move seamlessly to the latest version of the platform, taking your existing data with you, to minimise the change / impact.
