In 2018 we reached the 15-year milestone, reclaimed our status as an independent agency, made leaps and bounds in eCommerce, and spoke at some of the world’s biggest conferences. It’s been a brilliant year and we’ve celebrated some momentous changes. So come take a trip down memory lane with us as we look back at 2018.
eCommerce Show North is an annual opportunity to celebrate the thriving digital and eCommerce industry outside of London. We always aim to stay at the cutting edge of industry practice, so we thoroughly enjoyed the chance to collate industry insights and share our successes at this year’s event.
Malware (malicious software) that skims card details from customers has compromised thousands of unsecure Magento-based e-commerce businesses in 2018.

I took part in the panel for UK Fast’s “Speed in E-commerce” live webinar last week. Hosted (geddit?) by UK Fast’s Managing Director, Jonathan Bowers, we discussed the importance of website speed for e-commerce retailers and how they can overcome any issues. It was a fast-paced discussion with all the panelists keen to express their views in a really short space of time. As I wasn’t able to share all of my considerations, I thought I’d throw them together in a blog post, so at least I can be satisfied that I’ve finally got my point across!

Magento Business Intelligence (BI) is a cloud-based system that can unify all of your data sources and analytics software insights. Even if a team are using multiple different KPIs, Magento BI can provide “a single source of truth” for all. It was rebranded from Magento Analytics in 2016, to reflect its superiority over traditional analytic software, as it offers a holistic view of all company data.
