Magento 2 Migration &
Become the Next Success Story
When Adobe announced that support for Magento 1 stores would end in June of 2020, numerous eCommerce retailers felt the pressure to migrate to Magento 2 or find a new platform altogether. Test Equipment Depot, which is managed by the Fotronic Corporation, ultimately decided to select Wagento to help with their Magento 2 migration project.
About Test Equipment Depot
The Fotronic Corporation first launched the Test Equipment Depot in 1992. Since its founding, Test Equipment Depot sells new and refurbished testing equipment, HVAC and refrigeration equipment, video and broadcast supplies, and voice and data networks. The in-house specialists carefully inspect and refurbish every pre-owned item to ensure that its customers always get the highest quality products at a fair price.
Test Equipment Depot also offers special discount programs for educators, non-profit organizations, and universities. Shoppers can frequently find other sales and deals for testing equipment on the site's clearance section.
When the Fotronic Corporation contacted Wagento's development team, they wanted to migrate Test Equipment Depot's platform from Magento 1 to Magento 2 (also known as Adobe Commerce). However, due to the website's highly successful history, they wanted to maintain key aspects of its design and functionality. The Fotronic Corporation requested that Wagento:
- Maintain the existing headless product and category pages on the Test Equipment Depot website
- Ensure that the Magento 2 cart and checkout functionalities worked on the updated platform
- Add full product and category management capabilities with Akeneo PIM
- Integrate the company's Sage 100 ERP system with the Magento 2 platform
- Install a payment management extension to make it easier to track important data
The Wagento team immediately got to work on the Test Equipment Depot project. Developers successfully migrated the entire site to the Magento 2/Adobe Commerce platform before moving on to customizations, extensions, and integrations. They used the original website theme as inspiration for the new eCommerce store to maintain a similar look and feel. Both static pages and dynamic pages were utilized with the updated Magento 2 capabilities to enhance the overall user experience.
There were some concerns about data transfers between Magento 2 and the Sage 100 ERP system, so the developers customized available API fields to ensure that all information could be received and sent by both ends.
The Test Equipment Depot site migration was completed smoothly and on time, giving the retailer a modern site that could handle high amounts of traffic while retaining quick loading times. The project was accomplished swiftly due to the expertise of Wagento developers, who all had extensive training and experience to manage the site migration, integration work, custom programming, and data transfer for the new eCommerce system.
