Do I Need Magento 2 in My Life?

Support, updates and security patches for e-commerce platform Magento 1 came to an end in June 2020.

Retailers using Magento 1 are now responsible for finding and fixing security holes on their website or risk their business becoming vulnerable to hackers. And keeping on top of these fixes could become a costly long-term exercise.

However, there is a solution. Our highly experienced web design and development team is at the ready to help you migrate your Magento 1 site over to the much-improved Magento 2 platform with the minimum amount of fuss.

How Will I-COM Work With Me?

The first step will be a free consultation where we will assess your website and your company’s requirements. After this, we will work with you to develop a roadmap that will lay out clearly how we will upgrade your website to achieve your business’s vision, goals and objectives. Finally, we’ll move on to development and testing.

Your dedicated project manager will walk you through every step of the process and give you a clear timeline of what you can expect and when from your Magento 2 migration.

What Are the Timescales?

Magento 2 is a new platform, which means you should expect it to take the same length of time as any new website build. Typically, we’d allow between three to six months, but this will vary depending on:

  • Design requirements
  • Complexity of the data
  • Level of customised functionality required
  • It’s also a good idea to allow for plenty of time for any last-minute contingencies.
