Platform Migration

Although we are specialists in Magento & WordPress over the years we have had experience in most of the major platforms. We do offer a Platform Migration or Translation service for clients who perhaps have outgrown their existing platform or indeed if they want to jump into a more advanced or more appropriate platform.

As there are many combinations of ways in which a site can be migrated I won’t list them all, as each requirement will be unique. Saying that, there are trends of migration as one platform becomes better than another, at the moment a few of trends that I’m seeing are:

  • Joomla to WordPress
  • WordPress / Woocommerce to Magento
  • Magento to WordPress / Woocommerce
  • osCommerce to Magento
  • Zencart to to Magento
  • Actinic to Magento
  • Magento 1 to Magento 2

This list is by no means exhaustive it is just the bulk of the migrations that we have undertaken in the last few years.

In certain circumstance it can be a false economy to custom build add-ons to extend the functionality of a platform, especially if it hasn’t had the core updated due to other add-ons. This can cause a spiral of decay with speed and security and unnecessary costs. In this case the logical step is to migrate to a more appropriate, more advance, up-to-date platform, it is perhaps a little daunting but if the migration is handled and planned correctly (with proper 301 redirections) there is no pain.

If you have a requirement for a Platform Migration please talk to us and we will specify options and quote for doing the required work.
