O'Mac website migration to Magento 2 and high-level optimizations for providing a complete brand-centric experience.

THE CONTEXT

Our Client

O-Mac is a nationwide network of stores selling tools and equipment for home & garden, agriculture, and forest.

Initial project

The initial project’s objective was to turn an online product catalog into a modern and responsive e-commerce website. At that moment (in 2015), we developed the website on a full-custom platform.

Once the business evolved, a refreshing project was needed, so we migrated the initial website to Magento1.

The O’Mac website, developed by our team, was awarded at GPeC in 2015 for the best e-commerce website from House, Garden & Tools category.

Client’s needs & goals

In the past years, O'Mac business visibility grew. Once the company defined its position on the market more efficiently, the opportunity to launch its own products became a must-have.

Our client had to develop a refreshed digital environment to be able to succeed positioning O’Mac as a reliable and trustworthy brand.

The new requirements

The client decided to refresh O'Mac's digital approach by rebuilding its website and focusing on the presentation of their product catalogue, while keeping e-commerce features for allowing on-site acquisitions by end-users.

The solution

For developing the new version of the O’Mac website, we chose Magento 2, for its robustness, extensibility and a strong back-office business operations management offering stock, client, product catalog, and orders management.

Magento 2 advantages:

  • ease of product catalog management;
  • secure platform, with periodical updates;
  • free license (Open source);
  • responsive interface;
  • integrates SEO, marketing, and promotion tools;
  • feature-rich mobile experience;
  • access to the largest developers community and a variety of modules.
