Magento is one of those platforms that's just like Marmite, you hate it or you love it. Personally we love it and this is why we choose to invest our time and money in being specialists in the platform.
In our honest opinion Magentoshould and does come at a premium cost due to the development tasks required to be able to make it flexible and useable, it does take a lot more time to fire up a Magento site and start working with it. There are many prerequisite tasks to be taken care of before we can make the system flexible, useable and editable for the client, so understanding your requirements up front will help us to determine if Magento is the right platform for your project and business.
Currently there are 250,000 merchants who choose Magento for their business, however it is only 0.8% of the the whole internet that is powered by Magento. Currently around the world on estimate are 150,000 Magento developers creating a fantastic community for us to work with both to get support and provide support on Magento websites.
As Magento developers based in Newcastle upon Tyne and Sunderland we also provide consultancy to local companies and peers to support their on e-commerce solutions if and when required. It's extremely interesting to find that between 2017 and 2018 that the number of Magento websites double, meaning it is certainly on the rise, as of writing this post Magento currently stands 2nd in the list of most popular e-commerce platforms in the World.
Magento recently updated their platform to the much more versatile, more attractive 2.0 version. Many have already Migrated including some of our own clients which we have to say has been a complete walk in the park for us as developers.
So what are the main benefits of using Magento or having a Magento store?
PrimitiveSense currently maintain 12 websites on a monthly basis which is very small amount, however we really do love working with the Magento platform. All of our Magento developers based in the North East are all extremely experienced with at least 5 years in working with the platform, whether its looking for adhoc development or full built themes and stores for Magento, we can help.
