Gardenpedia is a Romanian-based company specialized in selling gardening merchandise, equipment and accessories for all gardening enthusiasts. The core business model is to offer a wide range of quality products at affordable prices (more than 3000 products being permanently on stock)
Gardenpedia and AYG have had a long history working together. In 2015, we started the support of their then existing store where we modified the theme to make it more responsive alongside cleaning the project from numerous bugs and bad practices. Their Magento 1 store was brought to a stable edition, but definitely needed a boost.
Hence, we saw an opportunity to take things to the next level and we initially started an upgrade from their Magento 1 version to Magento Commerce 2.1. version.
And going back in time, that came with its own share of challenges since core bugs were a given back at the time. 🙂
AYG's challenge was to create a secure, fast, and functional online store from scratch.
