Magento has been the eCommerce system of choice since 2008 and currently manages over 235,000 live websites. All software applications evolve and improve, which lead to the creation of the new version of this platform.

Magento 2 delivers many additional benefits over and above previous versions. Migration or upgrading to Magento 2 though is a significant undertaking and a project in its own right which requires expert support due to the vast differences introduced in the new version, it’s essentially a new platform. Businesses may be using older Magento versions including Magento 1, or perhaps even a different eCommerce platform. Whatever version or platform, working with a partner who can smoothly upgrade and migrate the everything to v2 will be essential.
