Magento is a worldwide ecommerce platform with millions of users in its fold. With its top tier coding, scalable design and customizable features, Magento comes second to none. However, with the release of Magento 2.0, a new debate has surfaced that argues whether to choose the new platform and migrate to it or remain with the older version when they are already working according to the needs of the merchant.
Here is Why You Should Migrate to Magento 2
In order to learn what the new platform has to offer, team FMEextensions has compiled and designed an infographic that will put the facts into black and white. The most important improvement we have seen and experienced in the new version is the speed. Magento 2 performs much faster than its predecessors with almost 50% faster page loading speeds. The checkout process is also cranked up with 35% faster performance in comparison to Magento 1x. This means no more increase in bounce rates and cart abandonments due to sluggish loading and checkout delays. The page loading time has now been reduced to a maximum of 2 seconds to prevent users from abandoning web pages. The improved coding has also enabled Magento 2 to take on 117% more orders in comparison to Magento 1x. It can also handle 2.1million more page views in an hour than the previous versions.
But speed is not the only thing that you should consider when migrating to Magento 2. The security has also taken new leaps of progress with more secure payment gateways and safer data storage. This reduces malware and malicious activity while ensuring a smooth and lag free performance for the merchant and the user. The admin panel has also been streamlined with reduced tabs and easier navigation settings. To learn more about Magento 2 features, see the infographic below.
