What makes Magento a good option?
Many opensource developers have had a hand in creating Magento and because it’s fairly new it has the most up-to-date technology built in. Almost every good option that’s available on any other e-shop software has been included in Magento.Varien, the company that originally owned Magento, originally worked with creating osCommerce a very well known eCommerce platform. To put it plainly, Magento has been developed by people that know their stuff.
Because Magento uses new technology, it is pretty much packed with a whole host of features.

Magento Web Development
Magento eCommerce is our preferred method of creating an online eCommerce shop as it’s one of the most robust eCommerce software platforms we have ever used to develop eshops. We have been developing successful Magento eshops since 2009 that have a proven track record.
Magento can be adapted / modified to meet your needs. Not only can it provide a shop window to the world but can also act as an excellent inhouse ordering system with stock control and the good news is for now Magento 1 will be contunied to be supported and updated side by side with Magento 2. It was made official that Magento will now support everyone using Magento 1 for at least 18 months from any end of life date they release. So that is great news for everyone with a Magento 1 shop at present who wants to maintain and know in the security of that news that they have some breathing space for now. But, we would highly recommend all Magento 1 shops are mirgrated over to Magento 2 as soon as you cna and you shouldn’t postpone the move indefinitely.
