Magento is one of the most popular e-commerce platforms in use today, evolving over the years into a feature-rich e-commerce solution. Despite other “plug and play” platforms such as Shopify and Woocommerce, Magento remains the number 1 choice for most startups as it comes packaged with all the essential tools needed to build an e-commerce store. It is the most robust, most flexible, and the best performance oriented alternative out there. However, one of the issues common amongst users and developers is that it’s slow. Which is surprising given that Magento is described as a fast and reliable platform. Maybe it’s time we listen to the users and our customers, analyse their Magento installations, identify causes and provide solutions.
Hi, the load time on my clients Magento site has gradually increased over time. Any suggestions on how to overcome this issue?
Why is Magento so slow? My experience with the default installation of Magento (including the test data) has led me to question whether this is the right platform for us. Other platforms hosted on the same servers seem to perform better, especially when navigating and making changes via the admin panel. Where do I begin to optimise the performance?
Believe it or not, Magento out of the box is a very robust platform with a high level of functionality. The community behind Magento ensures that it remains up-to-date and bug-free, without compromising the speed, reliability and security. It is highly scalable, meaning it’s flexible enough to grow with your business. Magento performance degradation is usually due to malpractices, misconfiguration or integrating extensions and plugins without first checking compatibility.
Do you really need another extension just to solve one of your problems? OK. Sure, an extension is an easy solution, but have you thought about the risks involved? Every new feature could have compatibility issues, increased load time and could potentially affect sales. We like to look into all possibilities and communicate any risks involved with our customers.
Analysis of your business
A detailed analysis of the company and customers requirements will be carried out to gain a better understanding of the current issues.
Analysis of your business
Analysis of the current setup will need to take place in order to identify any issues in configuration, integrations and caching.
After analysis, a requirements specification will be generated and we can set up a plan for action and agree with targets.
This is where our team of qualified developers take over, addressing any issues identified/raised during the analysis and proposal stages. And of course, we try to avoid any compatibility issues in the future.
On completion, original requirements will be reviewed to determine the success of the project.
