For this month’s Orange Report, we’re resolving your speed, accessibility and customer care concerns. Like always, we encourage everyone using Magento to make the most of its functionalities by incorporating the very best Magento extensions and news.

Magedelight - Product PDF Print

It’s easy to forget that our customers are a widely varied group, with preferred shopping modes and habits that don’t always conform. Bottom line: some people like to print out product pages. Also, some merchants may have a need to create a pdf catalog – whether for print or sending via email. This tool provides for QR codes, customer-group display and HTML tags for PDF-only content.

DCKAP - Quick Order

Quick Order extension functions as an enhanced search that enables adding one or multiple items to the cart from the Quick Order pane, without navigating to category or product pages. Customers can enter lists of SKUs and quantities and add to cart all at once. An adequately-sized server, well-organized catalog and speedy content delivery are crucial to make this (or any) search-based tool truly quick.

Solwin Infotech - Static Block Import/Export

Everyone wants a performance edge. Caching technologies are hot, as developers, merchants and hosting companies alike scramble for ways to accelerate page delivery. MERC provides a means to integrate Redis cache with Magento. The tool manages and monitors cache key hit rates, allows for bulk delete, and displays an array of performance and base activity metrics.

Amasty - Product Attachments

Drag and drop files into the product filter grid for placement on product pages. Shoppers can access product-specific or general warranties, user manuals, MSDS, certificates or other documentation in numerous formats. Includes admin controls for customer-group visibility, mass actions and icon display.
