ACG was referred to InteractOne by a satisfied client to help with updating their Magento websites for each brand and to provide ongoing maintenance and support. Their Magento ecosystem was burdened with a faulty architecture and over 18 extensions with poorly built customizations, making necessary upgrades very difficult.
InteractOne’s initial step was conducting a code analysis to pinpoint each architectural challenge. These insights provided a shared understanding of the project objectives between ACG Brands and the Adobe Commerce (Magento) experts at InteractOne. ACG Brands endorsed InteractOne’s “do it the right way” approach to fix the issues. This led to the meticulous upgrade from Magento 2.4.3-p3 to Magento 2.4.5-p1 and the optimization of each website’s architecture to streamline future patches and updates.
Due to the success of the initial upgrade, ACG contracted InteractOne as their on-going development resource, where InteractOne made several UI/UX changes. The UI/UX improvements included a revamped checkout UI/UX for all websites, the implementation of a blog with fully customized UI, a rebrand to two websites with a new brand identity and color theory, and the removal of eCommerce functionality UI/UX for another brand website.
