Magento 2 is ushering in a new era in eCommerce innovations, and with the available extensions, you can stretch the functionality of your eCommerce store.

Why Migrate to Magento 2

Magento 2 has features that rival that of other eCommerce platforms and other than a wide range of extensions, you will benefit from features such as improved performance compared to Magento 1, user-friendly checkout, secure payments and so much more. While you will need an extension for every department of your online store, you will need a blog and sales rep management extensions to ensure increased conversions and scalability.

Blog Extensions

If you have reached the point of having sales reps on your store, then you need to manage them and ensure that they are working at their best. It is not wise to send them out to sell your products.

With the proper Magento 2 extensions, you can effectively increase the productivity of your sales reps, and it will reflect on the success of your business.

See what some of our customers say about us!

  • Over the past 30 years of my career I have had the opportunity to work with a number of IT professionals. I have never worked with someone as good as Mike. He is incredibly responsive even for the smallest requests and makes major changes happen at a very fast pace. I am, repeatedly, impressed every time I have an interaction with him. He is so respectful of his clients and understands, especially with someone like me that has limited IT knowledge and capabilities, how to speak my language so that I understand what is going on. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to drastically improve their IT capabilities and web design whether it be a small company or a large one.
