Magento Audit

When Do You Need A Magento Audit?

Building a website is a lot like building a house.  First you have to plan out what you want to build (gathering requirements) then you draw up blueprints (wireframes and design comps), then you build (develop).  Unfortunately one major difference between construction and development is in construction there are regulated inspectors that have to approve of every job before they can be complete.  In the world of web development this comes in the form of a Magento audit, but these are not required.  So when should you have your site audited to ensure it was built well?  Here are a few common situations where you should have your Magento site audited:

  • Is your Magento site slow?
  • Worried you won’t pass your next PCI compliance assessment?
  • Worried about leaking customer sensitive data?
  • Is your Magento site not able to successfully apply a security update?
  • Not able to install a third party extension?
  • Is your site not ranking well for SEO?
  • Are you planning to integrate your site with an ERP system?

If any of these reasons sound familiar you should have your Magento website audited by a team of certified professionals.  At AuComm our team of Magento certified developers and solution specialists can help you audit your site.  We offer a full Magento audit as well as audits focused on specific aspects of your Magento site.
