“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
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.
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.
