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.

Both the companies offer Magento dedicated hosting services able to make your store fast, secured, and available 24/7. Below we asked the companies to describe themselves and their vision of high-quality hosting services that deserve your close attention.

Our New Partner Magestore: A new look at Retail Management System

At the end of 2017, we are glad to announce that one more new partner joins Aheadworks and brings its great omnichannel solution to our catalog. We are welcoming Magestore.

Our New Partner Magestore: A new look at Retail Management System

Just imagine. To have a house, you, possibly, have two options:

  • 1st option – you can buy materials to build and design it with the exactly meet-need and proper usability. Or else,
  • 2nd option – you can buy a ready-made house and customize some parts of it to meet your need.

Now, if your Magento business is a house you also get two options – buy each extension to build up your own system OR buy a fully integrated module and customize it if need.

Aheadworks is the supporter for the first option, but what if you want to buy a completed module at once? We are glad to recommend you a solution from our new partner.

Magestore Omnichannel

Module Integration is the key working factor of this Magestore’s “engine”. The integration is the highest-level form of the combination of separate functionalities without any compatibility issues and implying new features available. Let’s take a clear look!

Continuing to feature the Magento projects made by our partners this time we’d like to highlight several websites made by our authorized partner – R & W Media.

Among several other directions the R & W Media Magento team does its best creating highly functional and good looking ecommerce websites from scratch and promotes its projects through multiple shopping channels.

Founded by two young entrepreneurs, Steven Wu and Craig Randall, the agency has a vast experience in Magento and the guys kindly agreed to share their passion about it with our blog readers.

Below we selected a few projects made by the company that take advantage of our Magento extensions.

R & W Media: “We’ve been working with Aheadworks for a very long time and trusted their products and services. When it came to implementing new functionality. We don’t like to reinvent the wheel. Rather than us having to build a new feature from scratch, it’s best to use an extension, that is easy to use and cost-effective. We also found when it came to looking for a particular feature, extensions typically offer more robust features with support included.

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.
