Challenges

Plumbing supply now is an online eCommerce store built on Magento with more than 50,000 SKUs and integrated with other systems such as CRM, Custom Shipping solution, and other customizations.

The challenges of migrating a custom theme from Magento 1 to Magento 2, data migration issues. The different architecture between Magento 1 and 2 and the complexity.

The upgrade involved integration testing, load and performance testing, shipping rate calculations, Mailchimp integration, and addressing issues with order syncing and all the challenges with the migration.

Sigma Solve Approach

The upgrade involved integration testing, load and performance testing, shipping rate calculations, Mailchimp integration, and addressing issues with order syncing and all the challenges with the migration.

Theme migration was not possible and had to be carried out manually. Custom coding had to be adjusted as per Magento 2 structure. Other integrations involved Microsoft Dynamics and a custom shipping solution. The solution involved working with multiple vendors and integrations in Magento and customization as per the client’s requirement.

To improve site performance, we had to clean the database, configure the Varnish cache and Redis cache which helped to improve system performance. We had to configure CDN for faster content delivery.

For shipping, UPS gateway was returning wrong shipping rates for years and the company was losing money on their shipping rate.
