Initial idea was to build a shop on Magento 1.9. The platform, until we introduced new Magento 2 platform to the Client. He was excited to wait for a new Magento 2 platform launch to ensure long term support and growth of his new shop. Wide extension market and flexibility were one of the main points of his decision to start with Magento.
As this was our first shop on Magento 2 platform, little challenges started popping out as we started. We gave an extra effort in unexpected details; fixing platform bugs, translating the whole platform to the Croatian language, debugging extensions etc. The scope of work also included a full redesign with a goal to be customized to company‘s visual identity, responsive, lighter, faster, with improved user experience and easier, intuitive navigation.
Our back-end developers made a pretty good story with three different statuses of products making new additional value for customers and a new range of assortment of products for the Client.
One of the product modules allows products currently not in stock, which usually would never be in stock again, to still be ordered by automatically adding them on special request contact form. Those kinds of products then may be acquired by the Client from the manufacturer and sent to the customer on this special request without returning them to stock again.
We‘ve imported all product info, URLs, and content from an old, non-Magento platform. Since no attribute and attribute sets were present on the old platform, creating them and applying them as filters will solve much of the search and filtering problems.
Launching this shop is just the beginning since the client is full of new ideas, fully focused and fully engaged in using all the advantages of this platform.
