I need a new e-commerce store, where do I start?

After we complete a thorough discovery process, we can help you choose the right platform and manage any custom development.

Once the project scope is approved, an Xigen Project Manager will discuss the deliverables and milestones with your and our e-commerce development team, setting achievable phases along with QA and delivery.

To guarantee an efficient project timeline, we carry out multiple tasks in tandem including the creative, development, data population and translations if required. After rigorous testing by our dedicated QA team and the completion of data population either by Xigen or you, we can launch your store.

We offer a range of web hosting options tailored to e-commerce, from basic shared hosting to cloud servers or a multi-server private network. Our hosting team will help migrate a domain name to business spec hosting smoothly.

The SEO team will have been involved from the discovery stages so when your site goes live it will be accessible and fully search engine optimised.

My existing e-commerce store needs updating, how can Xigen help?

We start with analytic research and identify the pain points when it comes to updating your store.

Users always want quick and easy access to a product and a superfast checkout on desktop and mobile. We have years of experience building highly effective responsive desktop and mobile stores. Where necessary, we’ll adopt a mobile-first approach.

Our e-commerce team works with a range of leading platforms and also maintains and develops legacy and custom-built platforms. You can trust us not to recommend a new platform if it’s not needed or the ROI is not justified.

If a new platform such as Magento is recommended for its multi-store and multi-lingual features, our Magento qualified solutions specialists can help with the planning of feature requirements and migration of existing data and content.

Our SEO and QA teams can make sure a re-design meets the intended user experience levels. As with a new store, our hosting team will be on hand to ensure a smooth go-live migration with minimal and often zero downtime.

We also work with fast intelligent search systems such as Apache Solr.
