Magento is the market-leading, open-source, e-commerce platform that is used by global brand giants, such as Nike, Ford, Nestlé, Nespresso and Samsung, to create unique and powerful shopping experiences for their customers.
ExtraMile recommends Magento because it offers unbeatable flexibility and future-proofing. A highly scalable platform option, it has been built to meet the demands of even the largest online store and is shipped with a whole host of features, ‘out of the box’. If they don’t meet all of your requirements, there is a dedicated online marketplace that extends the standard implementation, offering free and paid extensions.
Magento offers infinite possibilities: creating personalised shopping experiences, boosting conversion rates, offering custom pricing for specific customers, targeting ‘unknown’ site visitors, and using ‘rules’ to increase sales and average order values.
The high performance of Magento enables you to focus on growing your business and not your IT infrastructure. Business teams can easily create and schedule a wide range of content without having any IT involvement.
ExtraMile has a wealth of experience in building and customising Magento websites, working on projects for clients that include, amongst others, EFC Fencing, IP Work Stations and SciLabware.
All Magento sites developed are built with the future in mind and will be compatible with future updates. The custom-built modules use the inbuilt ‘Magento API’ to ensure they are future-proofed.
