Ecommerce health check keeps online shops in shape

Ecommerce health check keeps online shops in shape

To the German article

Your new shop system is perfectly stable and flawless right after installation or relaunch? That’s great! Nevertheless, as a shop operator you should check your shop regularly. Shopware partner SHOPMACHER will explain to you what you have to consider and how to keep your online shop fit with regular health checks.

Are you familiar with this scenario?

Over time, you individualise your shop, add new functionalities and develop your platform even further. Then, at some point, you start asking yourself questions that concern virtually every shop owner:

  • Will my system architecture, which was so lean initially, gradually give way to system sprawl?
  • Why is the shop’s loading speed decreasing – especially on mobile devices – and what measurable loading speed is still acceptable for my customers?
  • Is the shop still stable and reliable, even under high loads?
  • Did the new additions lead to any security gaps?
  • Why are even the smallest updates so time-consuming?
  • Why are there more and more problems with deployments?
  • Why aren’t the product data consistent?

The list goes on and on.

Identify weaknesses and optimisation potential with pinpoint accuracy

There are many possible causes for the increase in technical issues with online shops. Identifying these precisely and initiating the corresponding optimisations is absolutely critical to keep ahead of the competition. After all, it’s not just a nifty frontend that’s driving the sales but also a constantly stable, high-performance and scalable system architecture. But the “decay” comes creeping and the causes are complex – and therefore often not that obvious. The system is “aging”. 

Those of you, who are responsible with their health, do a health check regularly, regardless of whether there are any acute symptoms. In the same way, wouldn’t it be a good idea to check, every now and then, how well you, as a shop owner, are set for the coming months and years with your current system landscape and, above all, which solutions can help you achieve the greatest progress in the short term? The keyword here is sales!
