Champs is one of the leaders in travel accessories. They provide luggage and travel accessories to big companies like Costco, Best Buy, TheBay and more. To improve their website and reach more customers online, they decided to redesign their website. We worked with them on the development of their site. The mandate was to migrate their site from version 1.9 of Magento to version 2 on the one hand. Second, we had to redo the whole design. We put our expertise to work to help them achieve their goal. We therefore developed the site under Magento 2 and made the site transactional. On the other hand, since Champs has several types of clients, we have integrated the

Description of the Champs project

As mentioned in the introduction, the old Champs site was under Magento 1.9 and was not transactional. Indeed, the majority of their customers have visited their site just for reference before placing the order. Over time, the need to have customers who are more and more autonomous in the ordering process is increasingly felt. This is why Champs has decided to add features to the site that should allow customers to order online. However, given that Magento version 1 will no longer be supported by the end of 2020, it was imperative to migrate to version 2.

Development of the Champs website

As a new specification we will need to:

  • Create a new site in Magento 2
  • Migrate content from the old site to the new one
  • Integrate third-party resources such as payment and shipping method
  • Give the customer the possibility to access only information specific to his group.

The development of the Champs site is taking place in several phases. Here is a summary of the steps

1- Feasibility analysis

In this phase, it was about analyzing the customer's need. Indeed, although the owner has their expectations, we are aware of the limitations of Magento and must consider them. During our discussions, we agreed on the tasks to be accomplished to finalize the project. We have also developed timelines to better move the project forward.

2 – Site map

Based on the current sitemap, we've decided which URLs to keep or improve. When creating the sitemap, we took some time to decide which keywords to use and the structure of the URLs and sublinks.

3 – Conception and conception

The client's specifications allowed us to carry out a design adapted to his needs. We also looked at the ergonomics of the site and the compatibility with browsers. Indeed, aware that a large part of visitors are on their mobile or tablet, setting up a site that corresponds to this target is essential.

4 – Integration of third-party resources

Once development was complete, we integrated payment and delivery modules and a few marketing tools such as Mailchimp.

5 – Content migration

During this phase, it was important to move the content from the old Champs website to the new site. We have also kept some features of the old site. To be able to complete this task, we made use of the tool offered by Magento. Indeed, to allow users of their software to migrate from versions 1 to 2, Magento offers a tool called "Magento Data migration tool". Using this tool, migrate content where some basic functionality is easy.

6 – Testing and validation

Once the project was completed, we proceeded to testing and validation. Together with the general manager of the company, we ran a series of tests on the site to make sure it was ready for production. Some of the tests we have performed are as follows:

  • Performance test – To ensure that the site is fast enough and accessible on any browser.
  • Usability validation – We initially developed the site using Bootstrap. To make sure that all pages are compatible with any screen, we took the time to validate the ergonomics of each page, thanks to the automation of the tests.
  • Browser compatibility
  • Site security validation
  • Other tests

7 – Deployment of the Champs website

Once we confirmed the site was close to production, we migrated to the field server. With the Champs management team, we are committed to supporting them in the SEO aspect and maintenance of the site.
