How we do development that benefits your business
We do Agile development. This allows us to build each iteration, then deliver “shippable” increments, adding value every step of the way.
This approach enables ongoing collaboration from all involved, meaning that, in partnering with us, you can expect flexible control over your website’s development as well as quick and effective responses to change.
Cloud based Magento hosting
As part of our robust testing regime of any development work, we provide your business with a staging site to thoroughly test all changes before updating the live site. Our years of experience with Magento development and hosting mean we have automated systems that make the process of making changes to our hosted websites faster and more secure.
Hosting with magic42 while we partner with you to improve your eCommerce site gives you a single point of contact and reduces paid time spent liaising with 3rd parties but, perhaps most importantly, it means our local development environment exactly mirrors the live server configuration avoiding costly unforeseen conflict errors.

We’re completely transparent about the work we’ve done and the time taken giving you full visibility of the value we bring to your business.
