How It Works: Improved Import and Export for Magento 2 by FireBear Studio

In this very post, we will introduce the Magento 2 Improved Import and Export extension developed by FireBear Studio. The extension is a complete solution for automating Magento 2 import and export procedures, saving store owner’s time, and helping him/her deal with arriving supplies.

Let’s talk about why import procedure enhancements and automation are so essential.

Why Importing Products is Important

This year continues the line of globalization. Stores are becoming more catalog-heavy, customers are becoming more demanding to product collections, and new suppliers appear of the blue offering better prices.

Suppliers are our primary concern here. Whether you just resell goods from larger markets or stock up for your store, stock management is what takes most of the time. And, the Improved Import and Export extension for Magento 2 helps you automate the stock updating routine making quick and efficient store management possible.

A Partner in the Spotlight: Atwix Appreciates the Practice of Sharing Custom Development Projects with Partners


It’s always nice to communicate with partners. Different mentalities, values and even accents help me have a deeper understanding of the people living around the world.

Meet aheadWorks New Partner: Inchoo

Officially announced on January 29, 2013, the partnership between aheadWorks and Inchoo aims at taking two companies to even higher level of cooperation.

Artyom Rabzonov, aheadWorks CEO, commented on the partnership, “I’m delighted to announce that Inchoo has become aheadWorks very first official partner from Croatia. With Inchoo as a partner, we will be able to serve the Magento market even better than we were able to previously, with the benefit of Inchoo’s special knowledge and experience.”

Famous for its high-quality services and popular blog, Inchoo is an accredited Magento Silver Partner, employing twelve developers officially certified by Magento. For instance, this number is among the highest in the world.

Aron Stanic, Sales Manager, Inchoo also clarified the reasons Inchoo had in mind before officially joining the partnership program, “We’ve already been a “silent” partner of aheadWorks for quite some time now. Being a Magento Silver Solution Partner, we’ve come across many situations where our clients used some of aheadWorks extensions, if nothing else, the blog was certainly there :).

During our work on various projects we’ve gotten to know the extensions offered by our Belarusian friends quite well, and we see this partnership as an opportunity, in addition to official certification, to get even more immersed in this vibrant network of great companies that were built around Magento, and perhaps even visit Minsk soon enough. We hope to see some of you at Imagine conference and we wish aheadWorks many more years of extending Magento!”

Without any doubt, this strategic partnership will enforce both companies position in the Magento world and will see the two companies coming together to take action on strengthening and developing Magento as the leading eCommerce platform.

aheadWorks Partnership Program Overview: 2012

So yes, we’re all safe and sound, no global devastation has occurred so far (let’s cross fingers) and the year 2012 became the part of history. It is a good time to draw some conclusions as long as the year 2012 was full of events, impressions and (what I like the most) – rich in meetings/conferences/chats/networking with good and talented people around the globe.

As a person who’s mainly responsible for establishing partner links around aheadWorks, I’ll focus on the partnership program and its large circle of partners.

In total, 36 partners from 18 countries helped us build the partners network in 2012. This way, we covered all the inhabited continents except for Africa.

Our partners are enrolled in Magento Industry and Solution Programs including 8 Gold, 4 Silver and 7 Bronze partners.

If we talk about the size, we’ve got small (up to 5), medium (10-15) and large (over 45 people) companies in our list of partners.

The services provided by our partners include programming, performance optimization, customization, hosting set-up, design and others.

The partnership program itself ran through several changes in 2012 as we changed its title, tiers and partnership levels.

For instance, in addition to several benefits such as discounts on aheadWorks products (up to 45% on the full range of products), dedicated support and consulting (see the full list on the partnership program page), we introduced a new one in December: now all our partners are provided with leads for the custom development services.

This latest offer is highly popular as seven new partners joined the program in December alone and I expect this number to keep on growing in 2013.

And finally, on behalf of the whole aheadWorks team, I’d like to thank our partners for being with us all through the year and we wish them to have even bigger ball in 2013. From our side, we’ll do our best to be good and trusted partners to you.

Meet new aheadWorks partners

The next new partner is Agency Kent, a French web agency specializing in the creation of e-commerce websites, mainly using the most popular e-commerce platform in the world – Magento.

Here’s what Philippe Biaut, the company’s representative, said about the partnership: “We have chosen the first stable version of Magento and any of our customers do not regret it so far. Agency Kent, formerly StartFresh, exists since 2003 and is now composed of eight full-time employees. Agency Kent is pleased to announce the partnership with aheadWorks, cos’ we often use the extensions from aheadWorks’ catalog, and we have always been fully satisfied with the quality of the code and support. Now we will be able to strengthen our partnership and offer a full service on all extensions offered by aheadWorks. I’d like to thank aheadWorks for the confidence they have shown in us”.

And finally, aheadWorks has secured another partnership with UK based Magento agency The Distance. With a strong portfolio of enterprise brands built on long term relationships, The Distance looks after the creative, technical and marketing requirements of many of the UK’s favourite ecommerce sites including Moshi Monsters Official Store.

Ryan Akins, online director: “Maintaining long term relationships with our clients is our highest priority, it’s what defines us, hence ‘The Distance’”.
