So, how did Inchoo end up working on a new site for WakeMAKERS?
We initially started working with WakeMAKERS in May of 2015 and we’ve been continuously building a lasting relationship ever since.
They approached us because they needed a technical audit. Since they were already using Magento as their eCommerce platform of choice, our team focused on figuring out what exactly needs to be done to make the site faster and improve the customer’s shopping experience.
After discussing client’s needs and figuring out the problems which were slowing down the site, our team suggested what seemed to be most obvious and simplest solution – starting from scratch on Magento Commerce.
WakeMAKERS used Magento Open Source 1.9. which wasn’t able to meet the client’s needs. Most of the things they wanted to apply were already included in Magento Commerce out of the box so that’s what we suggested. In the end, the client got better search options, improved indexers, full page cache and gift cards – just to name a few.
Our team successfully solved troubles with orders, various deadlocks and database issues. They improved on-site technical SEO and categorization and category pages display.
