  • REPUTATION

    Some of the biggest brands in the world swear by it

    Samsung, Ford, Fox, Lenovo, Olympus, Men’s Health, Vizio, Nike, Nestle, Kiping – Can you argue with the word of these brands? All of them have websites based on Magento and many of them develop sales online in excess of £1 million per month. Magento is at the cutting edge of eCommerce solutions and the big brands know it.

  • FUNCTIONALITY

    No other commerce platform offers as many features

    Magento features everything you will ever need to run a successful online store right out of the box. Modules and plug-ins can add custom elements to your online store and you can edit the way your commerce store is navigated easily by yourself all without the aid of an expensive web developer (although, it is always best to have some experience to prevent mishaps).

  • CUSTOMISABILITY

    No other commerce platform has as many themes or modules

    There are over 1,900 Magento commerce themes available to download in Magento Connect and thousands more have been created by dedicated website developers. If you do not have a large enough budget to cover the cost of a customer Magento commerce design there will be themes out there that can be adapted to your needs at a far lower cost.

  • OPEN SOURCE

    Developers and are constantly improving the platform

    Much is said about open source platforms. The truth is open source products are some of the most innovative in the world. WordPress, Android, Firefox – all of these are open source and all are a huge success with a large following. Magento is the same, with budding enthusiasts and a dedicated team working hard to develop the platform to make it more functional and better to use.

  • GREAT SEO

    Magento is 100% Search Engine friendly

    There are many ways that you can attract potential customers to your website, however the most lucrative of all is through the search engines. Organic website traffic is targeted and manageable, and Magento was specifically developed to be 100% SEO friendly. Out of the box it features search engine friendly code and search engine friendly permalinks.
