Magento Migration Services

Moving to Magento from another platform

Appnovation helps online retailers of all sizes move to Magento from plethora of other platforms, including legacy and custom-built ones. Our Magento migration services not only everything a merchant needs to successfully migrate to Magento, Appnovation also can help with ecommerce strategy, technical optimization, UI/UX/CX design, customization, integration and 24x7 support and maintenance.   

Some of the more common reasons that e-retailers, whether B2C, B2B or both, move to the Magento platform from another existing ecommerce solution include:

  • Greater scalability for growth
  • Improved flexibility for expansion
  • Heightened platform and customer data security needs
  • Expanding integration requirements
  • Overall site performance
  • Access to new features
  • Customization capabilities
  • Proven reliability

Below is just a sample and some of the specific reasons clients have come to us for help migrating their e-retail experience to Magento. They include small to midmarket players all the way to large and enterprise platforms.

  • Shopify to Magento migration - When your enterprise ready to scale and take advantage of superior flexibility and features, well beyond what this “starter tool” can offer, Appnovation can help migrate from Shopify to Magento.  

  • BigCommerce to Magento migration - Migrating from BigCommerce to Magento is quite a common need once the “Big” in BigCommerce just isn’t enough anymore. Magento’s ability to scale is a necessity for any online retailer looking to move to the next level, but the added enterprise features, ability to integrate, enhanced search and so much more make it all that more appealing.

  • osCommerce to Magento migration - “Limited” would be best the way to describe osCommerce. Limited in payment methods, limited in language features, capable of single store management are noticeable limitations of osCommerce, while the platform also completely lacks custom coupons, discounts, email templates and product customization features. Magento not only rectifies these limitations and lackings, but offers so much more in scalability, flexibility, features and performance to help drive revenue and positively enhance the customer experience.

  • WooCommerce to Magento migration - WooCommerce won’t be able to grow when your business undoubtedly will need to and won’t provide the flexibility for expansion that any merchant would want. Magento trumps WooCommerce when it comes to performance, security, scalability, flexibility and features. Everything a growing online retailer wants and needs.

  • Volusion to Magento migration - When compared to Volusion, Magento is a much more cost-efficient option with superior features and functionality.

  • OpenCart to Magento migration - Simply put, Magento is much more suitable for bigger online retailers and their enterprise level needs that come with that kind of scale. Customization and SEO are also limitations.

  • Zen Cart to Magento migration - Magento stands superior to Zen Cart when it comes to features, functionality, customization and an its overall ability to produce professional-looking high quality stores.

  • Additional Enterprise Migrations to Magento -
    • IBM WebSphere to Magento migration
    • Oracle Commerce Cloud to Magento migration
    • Demandware to Magento migration  
    • SAP Hybris to Magento migration
    • Intershop to Magento migration
    • NopCommerce to Magento migration
    • If you don’t see your platform on the list, fill out the form, email us or call and let’s talk. We likely have the migration expertise you are looking for as we have also migrated some of the most complex and sophisticated legacy and custom jobs ever built for ecommerce.

Magento 1 to Magento 2 Migration
