Last year Pete from Platoon Stores got in contact with us after having a problem with their web site. They were running a Magento based eCommerce site and there had been a problem which caused the entire site to come offline.
Magento is a powerful and widely used platform for selling online but simple problems can cause major issues and we'd seen this particular problem before. It was a five minute fix so we jumped in and fixed the problem for Pete free of charge. Sometimes people just need help quickly and if you can help them, why not?
A few weeks later Pete called again and he wanted to move his site over to our hosting platform due to issues that he was having with the current host. He also wanted to upgrade the site and move away from Magento.
Skip ahead 12 months later and after many, many hours of work from Pete's team, all of their products have now been uploaded and their new online shop is now live.
Their new site is based on the Joomla platform with the Virtuemart component handling the shop side of things. The site has over 1,500 products and can accept payments using PayPal and SagePay.
The next step is to link their site to an EPOS system in their shop to ensure that stock records are maintained accurately as in-shop and online sales will all be using the same stock database.
