The full Magento audit / assessment that we provide is designed to both validate the way your store has been built and configured, but also analyse the suitability of the core areas against your business requirements. Key sections of the assessment, which is entirely bespoke, include an in-depth code audit, review of third parties being used, analysis of custom modules, performance review, review of front-end code and theme quality, infrastructure review, UX review and review of core setup (e.g. multi-store, integration with other systems, catalog setup etc).
The full Magento audits we provide are completed by a project team comprising Paul (Solutions Architect and UX) and two very experienced, certified Magento Technical Architects. We’d start with an initial discovery meeting, where we’d run through all of the core issues, objectives and setup considerations, which would help dictate the focal areas of the project.
Once this has been done we’d start the research phase, which would likely be around 3-7 days’ work, depending on the size and complexity of the store. We’d then start documenting findings and creating the final report. We’d then setup a final meeting where we’d run through all of the findings and the recommendations for moving forward.
Key Focal Areas
- Review of Magento codebase
- Detailed review of custom and third party modules
- Infrastructure review
- Review of any changes to the Magento core
- Performance review
- CX review (checkout, core page templates, use of merchandising features, transactional emails, core front-end functions etc)
- Magento setup & config review (e.g. multi-store setup, use of core features etc)
More Information on the process
The process we follow would completely bespoke, based on the overall objectives going into the project. Depending on the merchant, we’d also conduct team interviews with key internal stakeholders (customer services, merchandisers, eCommerce team, marketing team etc), in order to capture the key pain points from members of the team.
In order to complete the audit, we’d need SSH access to the server, Git access, Magento admin access (full rights) and Google Analytics access.
