To help you decide whether migration to Magento 2.0 is right for your business, we have compiled an easy-to-follow, condensed e-book that can guide you through the benefits of Magento 2.0, and provide simple steps to make migration easier.
Why change from Magento 1?
As of 2015, Magento 1 has not received new updates or features and, although it is still supported, is likely to quickly become out-of-date, as well as vulnerable to malware.
Magento 2.0 has more ongoing support and updated features, but performance has been the USP of Magento 2.0. Compared to the original version, Magento 2.0 can process more orders per hour, and has a faster add-to-cart response time.
Not only does Magento 2.0 have the flexibility and versatility that made its predecessor so popular, but, unlike the original, it has not compromised on performance for these features.
Migrating to Magento 2.0
The prospect of migrating an entire eCommerce system to a new platform can seem daunting, but it needn’t be difficult or costly if you follow best practices and identify key areas at risk of data loss or incompatibility.
Another crucial step is to ensure that your employees are fully trained, and have all the tools they need to carry on business as usual as soon as possible after the system migration. This will cut back on the amount of time required for training immediately after the conversion, which will mitigate loss, as the sooner your staff can begin to adopt the new system, the sooner they will feel comfortable using it.
Migrating your eCommerce system is nerve-wracking. Nobody wants to be left behind, but then again, the consequences of a bad move could be damaging.
Our new e-book takes the mystery out of Magento 2.0 and guides you through the process of migration with a discussion of the benefits of migrating, as well as suggestions on timing, best practices and aftercare. So, if you need to know more about Magento 2.0, download our free guide.
