Poor web store security can damage company reputation or even crush down a business. Not to mention external scam attacks it can be internal danger hiding in poor code that can down a site. That’s why quality Magento Backend development is vital for any eCommerce project.
From another side a digital storefront has a significant impact on customer’s behavior. It’s like store interior in offline mode retail. It has to present goods, to emphasize advantages that will receive customer with a purchase. Visitors have to find all necessary for them information easily and without roaming. As offline as online store navigation have to be absolutely intuitive clear for folks. With one difference, eCommerce store structure and navigation should be obvious not only for people but for also for search engines.
Great storefront concept should be developed in compliance with
But to make any great concept to life Front-End Development skills are required otherwise it will be an almost useless concept.
And great front-end developer has to consider all these factors in customizing Magento theme, creating custom Magento theme or even implementing a design-related system configuration via Admin Panel.
Thoughts of bright Magento developer’s minds day by day work on platform improvement, to make it more powerful, to increase its performance, to empower it with new useful features, to create new security patches that will protect stores from wreckers.

Magento patches also have squash bugs upgrades so its installation can solve some store issues, improve site speed and performance, provide better user experience for customers.
Magento version upgrade (especially in case updates Magento 1.x to Magento 1.y or Magento 2.x to Magento 2.y) is quite simple procedure. But it depends on implemented customizations and installed extensions. All upgrade difficulties concerned with pure customizations, missteps with Magento themes and out-dated extensions.
We have extensive Magento upgraded experience as we work with this platform since Magento 1.0.
Difference between Magento 1.x and Magento 2.x is so big that this process calls migration. How we can help you to migrate store on Magento 2 please find here

Magento QA includes different test types:
As some of the Eltrino team members took part in Magento core development from the beginning, our expertise in Magento's pitfalls and bottlenecks counts years and kilometers of Magento code.

Magento setup and configure server is a piece of cake! Any fails on this stage will become real problems in the future as server configuration determines web store performance and site speed in general. Load time has significant impact on user experience, customers expect for fast and smoothly running online stores, 51% of U.S. online shoppers abandon a purchase because of slow site loading. Properly set up web store can boost conversion rates up to 74% (increasing site speed from 8 to 2 seconds).
Results of Magento performance tests impress but it works only if you've configured server part properly.
When eCommerce store development is completed, you can have a sigh of relief and pay all your attention and focus on your business processes. If you have internal Magento developers team you may forget about all these technical and programming terms and enjoy your store as all technical issues will be handled by your IT team. But if your web shop was created with the help of outsource web development company you need to have someone who will help you with bug fixing, implementing of new features platform updates and patches installation. Not all eCommerce companies are in need of internal IT department, commonly it’s better to outsource support services.

Poor web store performance - very bad news. A slow website can cost you thousands of visitors, potential customers, existent clients loyalty and lost revenue. User expectations increase, customers want more. Folks now are sure they should have what they want the second they request it. So any awaiting irritates and make them leave your store without purchase and let them never come back again. Performance review should be made on a regular base to monitor all bottlenecks that can slow down your eCommerce system. It can be a part of Magento Support Service. Our Magento experts will check your production environment and give recommendations how to optimize your system.
When Performance review is required
When a user clicks on your site, it sends a request to your engine to start up. So how long this user has to wait for the response depends on server’s performance. If it is poor, it will take longer to react. And it doesn’t matter how quick is your site, the slow server gives a slow start. So if your site is slow it’s very likely that the reason is incorrect server configuration.
Incorrectly structured data also can slow down your web store. When you ping the server it starts searching for required information but in a messy database, it wastes too much time for crawling when the correctly configured database will show the shortest way for required information.
Another common issue that impairs eCommerce store performance - incorrect Magento configuration. It seems that it’s so easy to setup Magento store. And at first, you will not notice any issues but over time configuration mistakes can significantly slow down your web store.
Also we run several Speed Page tests to detect performance bottlenecks.
We’ll review your store and find all bottlenecks on Magento load time. Even if it was heavily customized after code reviewing it will be clear what areas have to be fixed for fast and flawless e-shop work.
Stress or load testing in Magento can be implemented with numerous tools to identify the maximum operating store’s capacity, all bottlenecks that might interfere high store performance.

Magento architectural advisory is one of the most strategically valuable stage in any project. It’s a common fallacy that Magento store development is fourth, time and cost intensive. It happens in cases when Magento advisory was neglected and client or agency give tasks directly to a development team, without results of architecture analysis.
Magento is flexible and this quality creates multiple decision points with each decision possibly impacting multiple modules or functionality and performance. Developers breakdown any project into task aspects where Magento architect see it as a complex and knows how to optimize store architecture and development workflow. We know that you can find your own way, but you can waste a lot of time, so sometimes it’s better to ask advisor what road to choose at the beginning of your project.
Just make sure that decisions your team has made for development will get you to the right end result and follows the best Magento practices. If you don’t know what's the best way to solve your issues we’ll consult your team and help you to save a plenty of time, money and nerves in the long run.
