R & W Media specialises in Magento technical development. We have a world-class team of certified Magento developers who can help build visually interactive and fully responsive mobile-friendly eCommerce stores. We have years of experience working with both Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce platforms.
We have our own in-house creative designers who collaborate with our Magento developers to provide stellar Magento expertise in crafting the best Magento eCommerce stores on the planet.
We build Magento websites from scratch, allowing us to control the overall codebase more carefully and ensure your website is scalable, allowing your business to grow online. Our project managers work closely with our clients to determine your business requirements and goals and formulate bespoke features.
With years of practice, we have become a specialist in the integration of payment gateways, shipping service providers, and other third-party business applications. In the past, we have custom-developed features such as building B2B services, gift cards, multiple warehouse stock management, and many other features.
With our certified Magento developers, we follow best coding practices to deliver bespoke shopping experiences for your customers. We regularly train our staff and expand our skills due to the nature of changing standards within our industry to better our work and produce innovative designs. This also enables us to provide our clients with the best technical development services.
We perform code audits and regularly review our working codebase to improve performance and push the boundaries of what Magento can do.
Sluggish speeds will not just affect your page load but also hurt your customers’ patience. This can have a significant impact on your Google rankings. Here at R & W Media, when developing, we always ensure speed is an essential factor. Performing code audits, and monitoring environments, using industry-leading software, such as New Relic, to provide deep insights on site performance and identify any bottlenecks allows us to continuously optimise the site performance.
Typically employing fast-caching methods, including Varnish, Redis, and CDNs, we can ensure your website pages load lightning-fast at peak traffic. Faster-loading websites will provide a stress-free customer shopping experience and see an increase in conversion rates.
All Magento website codebases will be actively maintained and managed by us. This is securely stored in our code environment in Git, version control software that keeps track of all revision history when making development changes.
With this, we can continue to develop, knowing that previous versions of your website are always kept safe. Should we ever need to roll back or revert to a previously made change, we are able to do so without hassle.
Our highly skilled Magento developers rigorously test your website before launch. We carry out a variety of methods to test features that we have built to ensure they meet the intended purpose and are reliable and stable for release.
In order to pass our QA assessment, features are put through our internal testing, which involves both manual and automated tests. We use various testing tools, including the Magento functional testing framework and hardware testing through many computers and mobile and tablet devices. Finally, rather than assuming something works, we attempt to break it. Once satisfied with our tests, we go through a customer-facing user acceptance test for final verification.
Over the years, R & W Media has been perfecting the deployment process. We use automated tools to help move significant changes to the production environment seamlessly without any disruption or downtime.
We use continuous integration, a development practice that requires our developers to integrate code on a regular basis in a shared repository. When developing new features, they are rigorously tested individually and alongside already existing features to ensure no conflicts or bugs are introduced that may break or harm the website.
We can automate large parts of the production workflow across a cluster of servers and to cloud-based servers. With our automated workflow, we can be confident our clients will always receive functional deliverables each time.
Having a successful online store is just one cog in the wheel for a business. We understand that many companies will have complex systems and require each of them to be able to talk to each other to function as a whole.
We ensure the Magento platform can speak to your vital business software, ranging from your order management and catalogue management software to your CRM, ERP, or even accounting software such as Sage.
With our software integration partners, who are on board at the initial planning stage of a project, we can look at delivering the necessary system integration with Magento to ensure both systems can speak to one another.
We have helped our many clients achieve success not just online but also through business software integration with Sage, Brightpearl, Microsoft Dynamics, to a host of other business software.
Our project managers are your vital key contacts throughout the project lifecycle. Their key role is maintaining communication with our clients and managing the team to ensure the project is on track and within budget.
Using ActiveCollab, the leading project management software, we ensure that all projects run efficiently whilst hosting it privately to keep security at a maximum. This software allows us to communicate with our clients efficiently, set milestones, see the entire project overview, and securely share documents and notes. You will always know the project status and any outstanding tasks and be able to view invoices. No more endless digging out old emails or blindly following a project process.
Magento is a big part of our business, so we are very community-driven. As members of the London Magento User Group, we actively participate in the Magento community, appearing at conferences, participating in discussions, and attending events, which allows us to keep at the top of our game.
