Dealing with the headache of migrations

We cleaned up the online experience for a leader in the industrial power washing industry

After building a successful site for Landa Northwest in 2008 on Magento 1 and maintaining it for nearly a decade, the time had come for a refresh and migration to Magento 2. The Magento 1 site was not responsive or useable on mobile devices which was becoming a major issue. The client wanted to update the design but needed to maintain the overall feeling and functionality of the site which had become a leader in their industry.

Ongoing Maintenance

Data Driven Design recommended a number of changes including the migration of the site to a new host, redesign of the UI and migration to Magento 2. This needed to take place without any downtime during development and launch while keeping the transaction history from the Magento 1 site that was still running during development. The new site was deployed onto a new hosting environment and a script put in place to automatically sync the production Magento 1 site's database to the new Magento 2 site's database nightly. The UI was completely re-designed to be fully responsive and mobile first. At launch time the two systems were kept in sync in real-time while the domain was cut over to the new site completing the project with no downtime experienced for customers.

Interactive product catalog

Considering the sheer number of products offered by Landa, we took the extra step to create an interactive PDF product catalog that users could download from the site. Each individual product contained a hyperlink to the product page on the website where orders could be placed.
