Join the world's most adaptable & robust platform for business.
New Era of Cloud Commerce
SaaS is changing the world of business, and eCommerce has been no exception to this change. More independent retailers are migrating from Magento to Lightspeed, looking for an easier, more manageable way to roll out complex shopping experiences for their customers. Lightspeed’s SaaS platform enables retailers to refocus their budgets on more important aspects of their business, such as strategy, customer engagement, social media and data.
As an open source solution, Magento is much more prone to malware. As a very cost-effective secure platform, Lightspeed provides a free site-wide SSL certificate to all clients, covering the entire shopping experience of your customers using your free SSL encryption technology — upgrading your site’s certificate from HTTP to the more encrypted HTTPS.
An intuitive platform
Lightspeed’s easy & intuitive platform puts the needs of your customer first as it does not require significant development experience. Lightspeed’s standardised API’s half the deployment time of Magento, with which It becomes your responsibility to manage and maintain changes or when load testing during peak times.
Hosting and deployment
Management of service
Magento does not include either hosting or managed services with its licensing, and having to pay out for a reliable hosting provider, in-house team, contractor or an agency to assist with installation, setup and configuration, which can become expensive and requires a lot of legwork. Lightspeed’s SaaS means you need to worry about infrastructure, hosting, networking, or testing ever again.
Upgrading your platform
New Magento releases can take weeks to roll out fixes for bugs, updates, or partner integrations and may also pose a challenge when your customising your site, QA and load testing required for every release. Lightspeed provides automatic upgrades, completely customisable themes, and flexible templates. Our platform is equipped to adapt to each release.
Designing your website
Magento is an open-source platform allowing freedom to designing and customise your website, but without a standard of code, building out these customisations can be challenging, especially without a developer to manage, support and scale future customisations. With Lightspeed, you can easily manage your customisations via the easy-to-use user interface without fear of future customisation may affect the infrastructure of your shop.
Scalability and reliability
Enhance your flexibility
Lightspeed’s fully hosted SaaS solution provides retailers with the scalability, reliability, and flexibility they need. Businesses are making the switch to accommodate with seasonal sale peaks, allowing them to focus on marketing and user experience which are fundamental to the success of seasonal shopping periods.
When it comes to apps, Magento extensions place even more dependency on your development team as they may require ensuring stability. Lightspeed’s library of apps work to prevent this dependency by effortlessly offering a wide array of tools that streamline all the needs of your business —– payments, online ordering, loyalty programs, financing, marketing analysis and more.
