We specialise in Magento development. Maximise your business potential with the ecommerce-dedicated platform.
Magento is our preferred ecommerce development platform. It’s ideal for creating fast, robust and user-friendly ecommerce websites and, because it’s an open source platform, we can adapt and extend it to suit your specific requirements.
Better still, at Absolute, our developers are Magento certified, meaning we have the expert knowledge to create fully functioning ecommerce websites. Working with a Magento certified team, both frontend and backend, is of huge benefit to our clients because we always follow best practice and the websites we produce are compatible with future updates and security installs.
Magento is great for SEO. Straight out of the box Magento supports search engine-friendly URLs and Google Site Map, as well as per page and per product metadata. Also, SEO functionality is available through additional plug-ins, while the platform’s built-in analytics will give you useful metrics on sales and customer behaviour.
If your Magento store is a little sluggish or you’re experiencing weak return on your PPC campaign, a Magento Audit by Absolute could help. Our audits investigate four key areas of a Magento store; technicality, security, digital marketing and migration to Magento 2. A strategic and comprehensive audit carried out by our Magento certified developers and Digital Marketing Team will search for areas of weakness and highlight any potential issues. Depending on your site requirements, you can choose the audit you desire.
Your website is pivotal to the success of your business, so having priority support from an experienced, certified team is essential for peace of mind. We provide a comprehensive Magento support service, which requires a minimum monthly commitment of only one hour of billable time. This time can be allocated tactically, as needed, for any requirement - proactive security updates, critical incident support, issue resolution, training, design updates etc.
Magento is a flexible platform and lends itself to a variety of website projects. At Absolute we have created a whole host of Magento sites, of varying sizes with competely bespoke design, creating a site tailored to your business needs. If you stock the same products as a rival site, what will make a consumer choose one store over another, other than price? User experience plays a big part in this factor. If an ecommerce site is easy to navigate, a consumer is likely to visit and revisit that same store. A simple checkout process ensures a customer will ‘check out’ before becoming sidetracked and clicking off the page. Our UX designers and frontend developers specialise in making your Magento site customer-friendly, ensuring you attract business and retain customers. User experience is fundamental to your site’s success.
Our certified Magento developers have created a custom-designed Magento template, producing a cost-effective solution to Magento development. The template can be customised with your branding and logo, so is able to lend itself to a variety of businesses. The template has been crafted perfectly for SEO - recently a client's Magento website created using our template – teamed with our digital capabilities - scored 98% for SEO efficiency.
At Absolute, we also build full-scale Magento Enterprise developments. These large-scale sites have the ability to hold thousands of products, and you can create multiple store fronts using just one backend. Our Magento certified developers have the ability and know-how to build bespoke sites. Combined with UX design, they create truly unique websites that stand out from the competition.
We sync data to ensure you increase business productivity and sales. Our developers will ensure your products are well-stocked and ready for shipping with full integration of your warehousing systems. At Absolute, we're fully experienced in API creation meaning that manual work is avoided by the client, boosting efficiency and removing the timely need for manual intervention. Creating and using APIs generates seamless integration. At Absolute we can build your API or help you with your API design. Read more about third-party integration
Custom module development is a key part of any Magento project. Developing a custom module allows for great flexibility and enables a developer to design an ecommerce site that is based on the unique requirements of our individual clients.
We’re your single point of contact for everything from your website design and content right down to its functionality, and we offer hosting specifically geared towards Magento websites. Magento hosting is built ground-up for performance, using NGINX, Percona and Memcached to ensure the best performance. Non-Magento sites are never hosted on our Magento server, and we restrict the number of sites on a server to maintain your website speed and efficiency.
The ecommerce world is fiercely competitive. So before we put together your strategy we will work with you to find out who your customers are, who your competitors are and where the gap in your market industry is. Once we have all this information, we’ll work out exactly what you need from web design, SEO, PPC and usability updates. We’ll use keyword strategy to target your demographic and infiltrate these key words and phrases throughout blogs and website content to ensure the right audience is visiting, engaging and clicking through.
We’ve recently found that not all of our clients require the complete ecommerce solution that Magento provides. Furthermore, many clients simply don’t have the turnover to justify the investment. Shopify is a cost-effective alternative and now the fastest-growing online platform with a 9% share of the top million sites. This is a great option for potential clients that require a ‘simple’ shopping cart user journey and do not need custom logic, complex third party integration, multiple storefronts, internationalisation or management of a substantial product catalogue. Shopify offer a variety of paid and free responsive themes to get you started. Not sure which platform is right for you? Click below to find out how the two compare.
