A Look Back at the Major Moments in 2013

As 2013 draws to a close, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our partners and customers a Happy Christmas and New Year and say ‘Thank You’ for your support.

Now we’d like to share our achievements and major moments of this incredible 2013.

Happy Christmas and New Year

In the year of our 10th Anniversary we made a significant step and became Magento Platinum Industry Partner. This status proves our serious attitude to this platform and its community.

But our team never stops working and progressing. The results of our activities prove this fact better than any words. 19 new extensions and 2 services – OnPulse and aheadMetrics have been released this year.

19 new extensions and 2 new services have been released this year.

Moreover we have acted as a Silver Sponsor of the Magento Imagine eCommerce Conference and as Media Partner of the events in Palma de Mallorca, Sao Paulo, and Warsaw.

In order to boost the popularity of Magento Enterprise Edition, we’ve launched free trial services for all Enterprise extensions in our store. Magento Enterprise merchants can try out any of them before buying and it does not cost a cent.

This year aheadWorks team has put a lot of efforts into improving our partnership program, trying to make it more powerful and profitable for both sides. Currently we have 58 official members from 27 countries. Some of them used the opportunity to share rich experience and interesting projects with readers of our blog. We are always open to such collaboration.

One more peculiar event of this year is the opening of a Brazilian regional website, where we communicate with our customers in their native language. This contribution to Brazilian Magento market hasn’t gone unnoticed for merchants from this country.

While establishing regional stores we never forget about our main one. We recently upgraded our site. It’s simpler, cleaner, with big icons, and we think looks more sophisticated and user-friendly. Hope, you’ll take some time to explore it.

As you have finished reading this post the upcoming holidays became even closer. On behalf of the whole aheadWorks team, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Now it’s time to wrap yourself up in a rug, make a cup of hot chocolate with a cookie (or two), and… relax.


Magento Price-related Extensions Review

Pricing is a complicated process that determines existence of any business. Its proper organization, when all essential aspects of price modeling are taken into account, lets a company receive greater revenue and profit. But serious pricing mistakes may even lead to bankruptcy.

Most merchants set the selling price after the analyses of two factors. The first one is the company’s average costs. The second one is how their customers perceive the products value in comparison with the one offered by competitors.

Magento Price - related Extensions Review

Numerous extensions offered by developers of Magento modules are aimed to prevent merchants from pricing errors, simplify and automate the process of product pricing in their stores. These powerful solutions allow store owners to boost sales, set tier prices, create various discounts etc.

aheadWorks is always ready to give Magento merchants a hand with business improvement. The following modules, created by our high class developers, turn the process of pricing into effective eCommerce tools:

Update Refer a Friend to v.2.1 and Limit Rule Triggering

Refer a Friend is considered to be the most powerful referral system for Magento. Its mechanism is quite simple – existing consumers invite friends and get % or flat rate discount for referrals. The amount of rewards is specified by store administrator.

Refer a Friend

Refer a Friend is an efficient tool for conversion of customers into partners. Encouraged by attractive discounts clients attract all possible friends and relatives to join the store community. As a result consumers save money, store owners get more clients who are also eager to get discounts for referred people. This process can become endless and cause a stable revenue growth.
