creation of a new eCommerce site

Introduction to Magento development by The Pixel…

A Project Manager will spend time with you to determine the exact requirements of the project. Working alongside our technical system analyst, we will gain a full understanding of your existing setup and begin to work out how the project will interface with your systems.

As part of this process we will be able to confirm the project requirements and highlight any potential risk areas. Upon completion of this stage we will be able to refine the budget with the added knowledge and deliver a finalised confirmation of the budget along with an implementation plan that provides an indication of how the project will be managed.At the start of the project we will evaluate the analysis conducted to date and create User Stories to form the basis of our initial sprint plan leading up to the release of the first user acceptance build.

project cycle

From discovery, to development, integration, testing and launching…


Every successful project starts from a solid foundation. Our discovery stage ensures we have a very good understand of the project requirements and accurate specifications can be made.
Magento development


An iterative process that brings ideas to reality, without delays. Working through the project requirements list in priority order, delivering constant progress combined with ongoing client reviews and feedback sessions.


A new setup still needs to work seamlessly with your existing systems, any ERP integrations or third party systems will be developed in conjunction with the main website development build to ensure a swift project delivery.


Critical to any successful Magento development build is a complex and well planned testing routine. Unlike a traditional waterfall build our agile process ensures testing is constantly reviewed and feedback passed back to our development team.


Launching a new site correctly is critical to its ongoing success, providing a smooth transition with a minimal amount of downtime (if any!) together with a clear considered strategy to avoid disruption to your search engine rankings.


Downtime and site issues hurt your business and affect your image, so you can be assured that with the comfort and security of a support package that The Pixel is closely watching over everything so that you don’t need to concern yourself with such matters.

We will always create bespoke modules over hacking core Magento code or un-tested poorly coded modules on the marketplace.

Ensuring Magento fits seamlessly into your existing systems is a crucial component of a successful eCommerce solution. Not only will your customers receive a swifter service, but you’re also able to push wider profit margins through a more streamlined chain of sales and stock management.To accomplish this we have built a powerful and flexible framework that integrates into a wide range of third-party ERP, CRM and payment gateway systems. We have successfully integrated our framework into setups including SAGE 50/200, Access, NaVision and 3EX, so you can be confident that we have extensive knowledge of what is a complicated yet essential aspect of your eCommerce solution.Most of our complex website builds will require some form of system integrations. This can range from ERP system, to CRM and third party shopping platforms such as eBay or Amazon. With a wide range or integrations already developed our team can ensure your requirements are fully met and a seamless experience is received.
