One of QOLOS' strengths lies in guiding businesses through the transition from their legacy, outdated eCommerce platform to a more robust, cost-effective solution. We emphasize that before initiating any migration, business leaders should pose four critical questions to ensure a successful transition.
The first question centers on the motive for the migration, with reasons typically ranging from platform service issues to a lack of innovation, flexibility, or high costs associated with the existing platform.
The second question pertains to the platforms being considered for migration, requiring a thorough evaluation of each to weigh their pros and cons. An impartial eCommerce agency can be instrumental in conducting this evaluation, ensuring that businesses comprehend platform fees, compatibility with the current tech stack, required tools, and more.
Regarding the timeline for migration, the process's complexity can dictate anywhere from three to twelve months. It's crucial to consider upcoming contract renewals and choose a launch date outside peak sales seasons to optimize site performance.
Lastly, selecting a migration partner is pivotal, with expectations including expertise in design, development, quality assurance, maintenance, and an adaptable agency capable of growing alongside your business.
Furthermore, post-migration planning is essential, with the agency that led the migration playing a crucial role in fixing bugs, conducting testing, and implementing necessary updates.
