Winstanleys Pramworld, Pramworld for short, was on Magento 1 for approximately nine years and admittedly the company grew on the platform. However, things changed when Magento decided it would no longer support Magento 1 and introduced Magento 2 as its next-step solution. Pramworld soon decided it was in its best interest to re-platform to a SaaS platform.
“We wanted our new online store to be built on a SaaS platform where all the updates and patches were already dealt with."
David Winstanley, Director, Winstanleys Pramworld
Pramworld's decision to go with BigCommerce was guided by its long-time development agency, Space48. “Space48 strongly recommended BigCommerce. So, we went down the route of discussing that with the UK sales manager of BigCommerce. And on the basis of that, we were happy to go with BigCommerce without really considering an alternative,” David said.
After Pramworld launched on BigCommerce, the brand discovered just how easy it was to manage the platform.
