The challenge

Bosca’s old site was built on the Magento 1 platform which was soon to be out of support. This was a familiar challenge for the IronPlane team, and after considering several other skilled Magento agencies, Chris selected IronPlane to migrate their digital business to the latest Magento 2 platform.

Bosca wanted to migrate their existing highly customized site to the new Magento platform within 6 weeks. Their goal was to build a captivating digital property offering an uniquely Bosca eCommerce experience with practical improvements in page-load times, visitor to purchase conversion rates, and mobile user experience.

The demands of high quality design and development, a tight timeframe, and budget constraints created a substantial challenge for success.
