NEW YORK, NY – April 28, 2014 – Today, Pixafy announces the public release of Rapid Development, an eCommerce website solution that integrates pre-built Pixafy plugins, optimized extensions, and themes.
The solution has been in private beta since October 2013, and has saved customers, on average, $25,000 and five weeks of time on their project, as compared to traditional development solutions.
Pixafy Rapid Development is built on top of the Magento Community open source platform, and therefore has none of the limitations of popular closed source solutions like Shopify. The customer experience is comparable to a professional services offering, where clients work one-on-one with an eCommerce Producer to determine website requirements and receive training to prepare them for launch.
Key benefits and features include:
- The option to extensively customize pre-built themes, ensuring a unique brand experience
- Pixafy-developed plugins that deliver high-demand features missing from Magento’s base offering
- Open source platform allows for endless customization and third-party integrations
- Pixafy certified Magento developers that can make additional website updates at any time
- Enhancements to the Magento core that improve the speed of the platform
- Uses fully managed Pixafy Hosting, which is optimized for Magento and ensures scalability
“ECommerce business owners are an advanced class of entrepreneurs,” says Uri Foox, CEO and founder of Pixafy. “They want to leverage all the benefits of technology but they don’t want to worry about implementing it themselves or outgrowing an eCommerce platform they have invested in – so we’ve spent the last year building Pixafy Rapid Development.”
