By working with MDOQ, BeanBagBazaar gained the operational efficiencies and process innovations to drive down the costs of both migration to Magento 2 and ongoing support, whilst retaining that open source flexibility – something that Shopify just could not do.

“With the sunsetting of Magento 1 we spent a great deal of time reviewing alternative platform pro’s and con’s, both commercial and operational. We have always been a company passionate about driving up product quality and customer service, whilst pushing operational costs down. Magento 2 was a clear winner on many fronts in the review, but our understanding of the drastically increased development costs made it really hard for us to make a business case. However, when our development agency introduced us to MDOQ and showed us the efficiency and cost gains it brings, it made the numbers all add up and I’m delighted to say we had a very smooth and cost effective migration to Magento 2 – something we all hoped could be achieved.”

Philippe Galland, Head of Sales & Marketing at Bazaar Group

Life after Magento 1

The increased costs of migrating to Magento 2 have been the biggest concern for most merchants and a show-stopper for many when considering their options for ‘life after Magento 1’. Let’s face it, the smaller merchants are being forced to move to Shopify because of the perceived increased costs of migrating to Magento 2 and supporting it ongoing. Certain sources are indicating we are losing the Magento 1 merchants hand-over-fist to Shopify because of this.

Avoiding compromise

Beanbagbazaar.co.uk (Bazaar Group) are one retailer who have found a way to avoid compromise.

Beanbagbazaar.co.uk are the UK’s premier soft furnishings retailer formed originally manufacturing and retailing their own brand of bean bags, now as a multi-award winning company driving innovation in product development for living spaces. As you would expect they drive the same culture of innovation through to all retail channels and thus, selected Magento Enterprise 10 years ago as the platform of choice.
When platform migration once again became a business necessity (due to Magento 1 sunset), then the company reviewed all their options. Magento was the platform of choice but for one big question: Could the expenditure be aligned with those from Magento 1?

At first, this appeared to be an unrealistic expectation. however by working with MDOQ, BeanBagBazaar and their agency were able to find the operational efficiencies and process innovations to drive the costs down for both migration and ongoing support, whilst retaining that open source flexibility – something that Shopify just could not do.
