The customer owns the Magento marketplace for selling different parts of technic and coveralls. On the one hand, the platform is quite popular and has stable quarterly profits. On the other hand, Magento store is online for several years and of course over time some changes to the web application are needed. Therefore the client set 2 main goals for the cooperation on e-commerce project:
- UI/UX enhancements and design changes in order to make the service more modern and attractive for current and potential customers
- Increasing the efficiency and perfomance of the site by reworking some parts of the system
Expanding the service, attracting customers and creating optimal conditions for shopping are key points. The e-commerce platform is the basis of business, which is why the client concentrates his efforts on it.
Magento development started its work on the project in the shortest term. The highest priority task for the software engineers was performance optimization and increasing the productivity of the Magento store. On the way to e-commerce platform modification the team executed three steps:
- Old code investigation in order to understand the logic of the existing software. This is an important stage, where engineering team explored the source code to understand how the system works in general as well as to identify parts of the app that have to be modified.
- Modifying the existing software. This is a responsible part of the job. At this stage, certain parts of the code were rewritten and modified in order to improve the performance of the service.
- Revalidating the modified software. At this stage, the entire store was tested to verify the following: a) Performance optimization was successful. b) Modifications in the code did not cause side bugs c) The e-commerce platform works properly.
In addition, the services of software development team included Magento consulting. The team gathered recommendations regarding potential parts of the system that could be improved and regarding SEO optimization.
The next and no less important task – e-commerce platform redesign and UI/UI enhancements. Design team offered the new concept of customer’s existing Magento store. This design helps to accomplish the following tasks:
- Increase influence on consumer’s shopping pattern. In fact, online shop design significantly affects shopping behavior of the consumer. The longer the person spends its time in the shop, the higher the probability of making a purchase. The new version of the design combines modernity, convenience, efficiency and attractiveness for buyers.
- Optimize available shopping space of the e-commerce platform. Shopping space optimization helps to optimize the online store as a whole and contributes to the rational arrangement of functional elements & shopping items.
