If the website migration is primarily to only re-platform the website, we can carry over the design for your existing eCommerce store to keep the disruption to a minimum.
Of course, if you are going through a platform migration, it does not dramatically alter the price of the project to perform a touch up on the way through. Most of the time we recommend doing this to knock a few problems with mobile responsiveness.
In most cases, however, a migration is an opportunity to create a fresh look for your website and cook in a significant number of current practices in your new store.
We can reduce the friction of moving to a new store by migrating your customer data and history.
We can minimise disruption by making recommendations to a change management process that will keep your loyal customers in the loop as to what is happening.
The last thing you want is to carry across the most important asset, your customers.
We can import your old orders and match them to your existing customer. This will eliminate the problem of potentially losing many years of ordering history.
Product migration can be managed in a few different ways.
If you have a backend system, it will be a matter of making sure that it is connected into the new Shopify website correctly and any gaps addressed. Backend system integration is one of the most error-prone activities on a migration project and we take special steps to make sure all possibilities are considered.
If you will exclusively use Shopify for product management and inventory we can look at a simpler process to migrate the products from your old eCommerce system cleanly into Shopify.
Content isn’t always the focus for content stores, but it is important supporting information. We can appraise the amount of content on your existing site and look at strategies to migrate the content across to the new store.
