Migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2 –
a better store equals better business

Magento 1 was incredible when it was new. Today, it limits you unnecessarily. Lack of support means less security. Content management is only made more challenging and your customers will not wait.

Old technologies produce old results. Migration to Magento 2 allows you to join the best and run a store that is suitable for your products and your customers.

We will guide your business through all stages of migration, ensuring a smooth transition from a 'used to be good' store to an excellent one.

Moving the store from Magento 1 to 2 – step by step

ANALYSIS OF THE EXISTING STORE ON MAGENTO 1

In this phase, we analyze the entire source code of the store on Magento 1. We also discuss the most important functionalities of the store for our client. At this stage, we assess all existing integrations and modules to find out if they will be needed on Magento 2.

The next stage is to collect all existing web addresses on the store (products, categories, CMS pages) to plan a list of redirects. This is crucial during the migration so as not to lose the store’s position on Google.

Finally, we prepare documentation based on which our programmers and project managers can implement the project to achieve the most effective results.

PREPARATION OF A TEST VERSION OF THE STORE

At this stage, we prepare a test server for our client so that they can see the results of our work as soon as possible.

Throughout implementation, we use the SCRUM method, which means that our client can influence any changes and modify the existing backlog within the budget while building a new website.

At this stage, we also transfer existing customer data and orders to the new store.

IMPLEMENTATION

Finally, it's time to implement the new version of the website. We try to do this in a way that keeps the previous platform available, which is important for processing possible returns that are requested during the migration and provides us with a reference for analyzing any possible issues with the new version.

GUARANTEE

For 3 months after the implementation is finished, we operate on a warranty basis. This means that when an implementation that was described in the documentation does not work, it is repaired by our team free of charge.

For us, each action we take is an ongoing partnership, meaning that each patch/bug is investigated and fixed by us.

MONITORING

For Alekseon, the store launch is never the end of the adventure. This is where our greatest competitive advantage begins. With us, the client receives a 24/7 monitoring system.

We monitor not only the operation of the store itself, but also server logs, application logs, servers themselves, memory, and processor usage. This allows us to know when something is not working on the website even before our clients do.
