Insurance and Risk Management
This company’s existing site was extremely old and outdated. The site was built on a Magento 1 platform and had zero mobile compatibility, a visually outdated aesthetic, a very difficult to navigate course catalog and a back-end login area built on a completely different technology just so it could connect with their Oracle database.
The Magento 1 platform was also very cumbersome. With an admin interface that was difficult to manage and hard to navigate, it was difficult for their user base to administer the site. In addition, Magento 2 came with numerous performance updates.
Below is a view of the old website.
Plego built a brand new eCommerce site based on the Magento 2 platform, below are the features of the website. The following are the features of the new site:
