The much anticipated Magento 2 finally arrived last month. This long awaited platform has been in development for five years, but the features and changes have definitely been worth the wait.
According to Magento: “The new platform empowers brands, retailers, and businesses across B2C and B2B industries to quickly and cost-effectively deliver engaging omnichannel shopping experiences.”
So what’s new? Heres our run down of the latest features:
Admin Area Overhaul
The user interface of the admin panel has had a huge overall with flat design and modern navigation. With an advanced and simplified design, the admin area is now up to speed with latest website design allowing users to manage their online shop comfortably via an extensive range of screens such as touchscreen laptops, mobile phones and tablets.
Faster, Better, Speed
Magento states that the page loading time is over 50% faster across many catalogue and streamlined checkout pages compared with the previous Magento. Magento 2 allows for full page caching and image compression that allows for faster loading times on web pages, making for a better user experience.
Improved Performance and Scalability
Magento has always been great for scalability and flexibility, design to help retailers grow their businesses. As your business will grow, so will your team and Magento 2 enables multiple admin accounts to manage and edit products without needing to worry about data conflicting. Pretty impressive huh?
Magento is built with the latest technologies in mind, giving you peace of mind that your online business will be future proof.
