In an era when so many high street retailers are falling behind their sales projections and eCommerce is driving more growth to market than any other sector, there's never been a better time for retailers to bolster their online profile or web start-up companies to flourish. As the leading eCommerce platform – more Googled than the term eCommerce itself - Magento is by far the most fertile soil to foster online growth for your company.
Our clients range from global brands to web start-ups and, as a versatile and tractable company, our expertise is in aligning the ideal Magento eCommerce package to each client's specific needs. It's why we've enjoyed such long-standing relationships with so many of our clients after initially developing their Magento site, from continued support onto hosting services and online marketing to suit the demands of their particular business.
Simply explained, Magento is an open source content management system (CMS) for eCommerce that offers feature rich methods of selling and promoting products, organising customers, and retaining secure payment methods. From the perspective of a trained Magento developer, the platform can also be easily adjusted through additional coding to provide specific customisations to suit the needs of any given client.
One of the biggest reasons for Magento's success has been its range of Editions, from the license-free Community Edition to its two premium Editions, Professional and Enterprise. The tools and feature-sets across each Edition are scaled to reflect the needs of different sizes of business, whether you're an independent web merchant, growing company, or large online retailer.
Magento Go brings a fourth solution to the table under a 'Software as a Service' (SaaS) license. Payment is subscription-based across four separate streams of service, providing an affordable plan for any small business. Magento then hosts the site and provides its expert support service at no additional cost to your monthly plan.
Whether your particular business suits the open source Magento Community Edition, top-tiered Magento Enterprise package, or agile Magento Go service, The Pixel is ideally positioned to offer expert advice and dedicated service across the board.
