Magento 1 to Magento 2 Upgrade


Magento has been at the forefront of ecommerce technology for over ten years. Over 200,000 businesses use the power and flexibility of Magento to drive their sales online. In recent years the second major evolution of the system, Magento 2, has grown to maturity.

June 2020 marks a major milestone for Magento, because Magento 1 officially reaches ‘end of life’. That means that there will no longer be security patches released for the older generation of Magento stores. The good news is that Magento 2 includes all the features that were great about Magento 1, taking them to the next level. The key benefits of Magento 2 include:

  • Improved scalability
  • Greater speed
  • Modernised admin tools
  • New system integration options
  • More focus on mobile-optimisation
  • Improved security

We’re expert at guiding businesses through the process of upgrading from Magento 1 to Magento 2. Contact us to find out how we can help you to navigate through the ecommerce jungle.
