Magento 2 is the latest version of an e-commerce platform used by 1 in 4 businesses. Released in 2015, Magento 2 was welcomed with open arms their dedicated fans thanks to the important improvements it brought in terms of technology, modularity, and performance.
Hysop understood the importance of having an updated webshop and that’s why they asked Baldwin to help them with their Magento migration. The client saw the migration process as a great opportunity to make an inventory and decide what needs to be kept and what needs to be removed from the new, improved webshop.
Development & design
A meeting with the client gave us all the insights we needed regarding the requirements. We established the navigation, the menu, the product grid and the modules that needed to be installed on the Magento 2 webshop. Hysop had a special request: to first have to approve a customer account before the customer can see their prices and products.
The front-end is clean, simple and product-oriented. Magento 2 sculpted the back-end into a modern design, which is a lot more user-friendly than the previous version. And our client is really happy about it. Our clients had the chance to easily maintain their webshop, without having to be some certified computer Jedi.
Having a webshop up and running is not enough. That’s why we made sure our SEO module is installed on Hysop. It comes with a series of tracking and SEO features developed an extensive 1st hand experience and research. 👌
