Magento 2 vs. BigCommerce
To help Strobels Supply decide between Magento 2 and BigCommerce, our team explained the features and benefits of each. We described how BigCommerce reduces technical debt and removes server costs, requires minimal technical knowledge post-launch and offers built-in features and functionality to run their entire eCommerce store.
Magento, on the other hand, costs up to 75% more than BigCommerce − burdening businesses with technical debt and ongoing maintenance fees. When companies need to make quick updates to their Magento site post-launch, it can be difficult without a developer's help. Also, Magento lacks the unique built-in features that BigCommerce offers.
Based on this evaluation, Strobels Supply acted upon this website migration opportunity and took the proactive approach − they decided to transition from Magento 1 to BigCommerce.
We migrated the Strobels Supply online store from Magento to BigCommerce to help them create a scalable and intuitive shopping experience. As a part of this process, we leveraged custom designed PageBuilder widgets to make editing the website a breeze. In addition, we leveraged the native power of the BigCommerce platform where possible to get the site live with a rapid timeline.
For Strobels Supply, we leveraged their existing technology stack (aside from their previous platform) to minimize the need for additional training, save time spent on onboarding new systems and reduce costs. This strategy can often help streamline the website migration process and avoid major disruptions to business operations. Overall this approach helped Strobles Supply get to market faster after their migration and spend time focusing on increasing revenue for their business.
Strobels Supply sells products in bulk and a large catalog of products, so importing in bulk was an important component to this website migration. For this project, we leveraged BigCommerce's native BigCommerce search functionality to help users filter through and find the products they need. Our team also made sure that products could be edited easily and efficiently in the back-end of BigCommerce if they needed updating.
Overall, our efforts to migrate Strobels Supply from Magento 1 to BigCommerce resulted in significant performance increases. If you're undergoing a website migration and don't know which platform is best for your business's unique needs, schedule time with a consultant below.
