On a growth trajectory with Geschenkidee.ch GmbH: Migration of a high-traffic B2C online shop to Magento Enterprise
The management of an immense product assortment, a very high number of concurrent users and the successful processing of multiple orders per second: Those were the challenges Geschenkidee.ch GmbH posed for the new e-commerce system.
The previous, highly modified e-commerce system could no longer meet these requirements. dotSource replaced it with the sustainable standard solution Magento Enterprise. The Swiss retailer thus benefits from the online shop’s improved update capabilities, maintainability, and scalability.
The best Conditions for further Growth
As the Magento standard is designed for considerably lower numbers of products, dotSource was able to adjust the Magento standard. This achieved a new dimension in performance and data processing. The shorter loading times of the online shop Geschenkidee.ch ensure improved conversion and will have a positive effect on turnover in the long term.
The relaunch thus provides Geschenkidee with the best conditions to consolidate its position as market leader in the online sale of gifts.
Migration to Magento Enterprise and adjustments to the Magento standard
Implementation of a new caching model
Modification of the database and optimisation of the import processes
Realisation of load tests
Integration of different third-party systems, such as the ERP system
Screendesign for 4 viewports and integration into the Magento template sets
