Magento Development

What's so special about Magento?

The Magento platform is built with open-source code, allowing full flexibility and control over your store, and making it the ultimate eCommerce solution.
 

Where should you start?

The development process starts with a marketing brief of the business and a functional brief of the upcoming website. During this phase, decisions are made regarding the website's architecture (site structure, product types, filters, etc.) and the website's functionality (stock management, external integrations, payment gateways, etc.). This step is crucial to making a successful website. The brief will serve as the foundation of your site development. During this phase, you will choose either template-based development or development from scratch. In some cases, you can combine the two methods to achieve optimal resource spending, branding and functionality.

Okay, what's next?

The brief is transferred to our certified developers with two main point in mind: integrations to external business solutions, and relevant extension setup.

Extensions

Magento is built in a modular way that allows flexibility when it comes to extensions. Aside from the core system, you can also install a wide array of extensions that expand the platform's capabilities. These include:

* Sales/Social Media - Allows users to login through their social media profiles, minimizing friction.
* Cart Abandonment - Sends automated emails to potential customers who have left items in their shopping cart.
* Checkout - Simplifies the checkout process to improve user experience and maximize conversion rates.
*Store Management/Stock management - Optimizes the product-importing process and manages ongoing stock 
* Shipping methods - Configures various shipping methods that suit different needs (economy, express, etc).
* Customer Management
* Performance Optimization
*SEO Extensions
* Site Speed Optimization
* Google Analytics Extensions
and the list goes on...

Integrations

In the digital age, it is impossible to disconnect your "digital branch" from the rest of your business processes. You need to integrate the digital aspects of your business to work in tandem with the rest of your tools in order to handle a large amount of customers and orders. This is one of our platform's strengths. Magento is built with integrations in mind and allows full integration to third-party systems such as CRM, ERP, payment gateways, shipping, and more. This saves time and prevents human error.
Here are a few examples:
ERP, CRM - SAP, Oracle, Priority, SugarCRM
Payment Gateways - PayPal, Pelecard, Icredit, EasyCard, Tranzila
Marketplaces - Amazon, eBay, PayPal, Rakuten
Shipping - FedEx, DHL, UPS

Didn't find a solution to your problem?

 Thanks to Magento's open-source code, we can develop solutions tailored exactly to your needs. Whether it's related to marketing, functionality add-ons, or anything else - we've got your back. The cost and development times vary based on the complexity of the problem.

The Perfect Architecture for Your Store

The development process begins with a characterization of the site's marketing and functional operations, based on the customer's needs and the type of business. At this stage, decisions are made about the architecture of a site (category trees, product types, site cuts, etc.) and its functionality (inventory management, external systems, clearing mechanisms, etc). This stage is the most important part of building the site, and it serves as a basis for strong compatibility between your site and your business purposes moving forward. At the end of this stage, you will decide how the site will be built: whether you will develop based on a template that meets the requirements of your site, or whether you'll use a custom development that enables the construction of a unique site from scratch, with full flexibility for any marketing and functional need.

Extension Development and Integration

The famous flexibility of the Magento platform is made possible by, among other things, its modularity. This means that in addition to including a base system that comes with a variety of options, Magento also makes it possible to easily assimilate a huge selection of add-ons that provide specific solutions for optimizing the site according to the needs of your business. Magento allows for the addition of store-smart management plugins (inventory management, shipping forms, customer club management), site performance optimizers (SEO, site speed improvements, statistical tools), and the list goes on ...

Custom Development Solutions

With regard to the open source on which the system is built, custom modules can be developed for every functional and marketing need (the time it will take and the cost of development are determined by their complexity). To get started, contact professionals who know the code of the site and are authorized by the global Magento. You can read more about our Magento experts here>.

Always By Your Side

It is important to know that the development of Magento does not end once the site is launched. After developing the site, the Girit team will accompany you as part of the SLA package, helping you every step of the way as you adjust to your new Magento store - providing training for the management system, bug handling, and ongoing monitoring of the site's integrity and performance.
