KRCS Magento website

Magento 2 takes KRCS to the optimum level

The leading Apple Premium Reseller needed a more robust site to handle their high-levels of traffic.

The challenge

KRCS is a premium reseller of Apple products and accessories. They first came to us in 2013 requiring an ecommerce website with aspects of bespoke functionality. To keep the project cost-effective we used an existing Magento 1.7 theme, which we then customised so that it met Apple guidelines.

As the KRCS site grew using version 1 of Magento it started to experience high levels of traffic. At peak times such as Black Friday it became apparent that the website needed to move forward in development to accommodate the increase in volume of traffic. With increased speed, performance and heightened user experience available from Magento 2, an upgrade to Magento 2 presented the best solution for KRCS.


Keen to improve user experience as much as possible, we recommended Sphinx Search Ultimate extension for KRCS, which enables auto correction of typing errors when customers are searching for products. The extension also allows for long tail searching, which recognises hyphens and slashes in text, so heightens the search capacity.

KRCS will also benefit from the extension Mirasvit Advanced SEO Suite, allowing them to automate their SEO settings, optimising specific categories and product groups, which will greatly improve the performance of their site in search engines.

Magento 2 has a much improved admin system allowing the client to manage their inventory with much more ease and efficiency. 

Finally, due to the high levels of traffic KRCS were experiencing, we moved their original site from a shared server onto a dedicated Magento server running PHP 7, which further enhances the speed of their website.
