E-commerce Website Redesign
Website Redesign, Optimisation and SEO
When we first met Tomas from Megapump, his online shop website was already running. But his website did not perform well and had some serious technical issues. We changed and upgraded the existing e-commerce website design and functionality. The website engine was based on older technologies and the loading time was nearly 13 seconds.
After resolving the main technical issues and optimising the performance, we managed to push the loading time down to less than 4 seconds. This had a significant impact both on the website visibility in search engines and on sales.
2017 Project Update Cart-to-Cart Migration
The internet is quickly evolving and new standards are applied every day. These changes have to be reflected in every website from time to time. In order to make this website more competitive, it was necessary to improve its code base.
The challenge was, that the original e-commerce platform OpenCart was not offering the desired level of improvements when upgraded to the latest version. The best solution was therefore to migrate the entire shopping site to a completely new platform, Prestashop.
This was not easy to accomplish, for a website with hundreds of products and an existing customer base. However, with careful planning and the right set of tools, the migration went very smoothly.
In terms of design, we kept the look and feel very similar to the original site. This was done to minimise confusion for existing customers and to keep the necessary resources to a minimum.
