Inchoo is a Sylius Solution Partner! To celebrate, here’s an interview with Sylius’ Founder, Pawel Jedrzejewski

Inchoo and Sylius partnership

For a long time, our only platform of choice was Magento. It was simply the best match for SOHO, SMB and Mid Sized businesses, especially in the Magento 1 era. Ecosystem recognised this and embraced the platform fully, which empowered high growth. It gave our clients a great starting point, security and lots of options. But, a new generation of eCommerce platforms has matured, and we at Inchoo are excited with the possibilities they open.

Magento 2 positioned itself higher on a SMB scale and this created some new gaps/needs in the market. Now, we’re working with three platforms: Magento, Sylius and Shopify and we feel that these are not direct competitors. Each one has a specific niche to fill. We will always consult our clients towards the selection of platform that is more tailored to their needs. It makes the whole creative process more efficient and the end results are better.

Sylius eCommerce Framework is the newest member of our partner family and platforms that we build stores with, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with that! Its founder, Paweł Jędrzejewski, held a three-day workshop at Inchoo for our specially chosen development team.

How we developed a new Morris 4×4 Center store – case study

How Inchoo developed Morris 4x4 Center

In 2017, we had a challenging task in front of us. It all started with an inquiry from a potential new client, Morris 4×4 Center, that was looking for a partner to help them address and solve website stability issues.

From that, it developed into a whole new project with the deadline of delivering a new site in under 2 months! Backend and frontend developers, design team, eCommerce consultants – we were all in it!

Let me tell you more about this project.

“It takes a village” to raise an active local IT community – 2 Inchooers take the stage at #MM17ES

Dunja-Zrinka-Meet-Magento-Spain

Inchooers at Magento conference? That’s nothing new. But 2 women Inchooers on the stage of Meet Magento Spain? Well, that’s something!

IT has always been a predominantly male industry. However, women are playing a huge part too! It is no longer such a huge surprise to see a woman in tech. Although they are still generally unrepresented in hardcore technology jobs, women are mostly finding their place in business development, HR, consultations, marketing and design fields of IT companies.

Let’s face it – men are from Mars and women are from Venus. We are alike, but again, we’re different in values that we bring to the company and ways that we are handling business, especially on soft skills level. Research show that women are better at using soft skills that are crucial for effective leadership and superior business performance.

We’ve developed a Croatian Language Pack for Magento 2

eCommerce is rapidly increasing in the world, but Croatian market was a little behind that trend. Why? Maybe it’s our distrustful nature to buy something online. Who knows. But the good thing is – we at Croatia are slowly but surely discovering the benefits of online shopping. Both as consumers and as shop owners.

Wether you are big or small, on Magento or on some other platform, goal is the same. Increasing sales and keeping customers happy and loyal. One of the ways to achieve that is by shop localization.
