Magento Enterprise Edition 2.1 New Feature Release
It’s no surprise that Magento is constantly releasing new changes and features to the platform to make it perform even better; Last week, Magento announced their new feature release on Magento 2 which focuses on the powerful benefits for marketers and merchandisers.
We will be starting a blog series that will look more in depth at Magento 2 and its features but for now, here is a short synopsis of their new additions.
Drive Sales and Improve Productivity
User-friendly tools make it easy to stage, preview, and schedule a wide range of new content, including updates to products, categories, and promotions. There is also a new timeline dashboard that lets you see all of your scheduled updates, making it easy for your team to coordinate campaigns and be on the same page.
Enterprise Edition 2.1 also now lets you schedule updates! You are able to preview changes across your site by store view and date and share links to content with your team members to make reviews and approvals easier. This is great for merchandisers and marketers because you are able to schedule updates to automatically publish, leaving you to “set it and forget it!”
Boost Conversion Rates
The new Enterprise Edition has PayPal enhancements that will streamline your checkout experience which will result in boosted sales. This new checkout increases conversion rates by letting shoppers checkout safely and securely without ever leaving your site. They securely store credit card information through PayPal Saved Credit Cards which lead to less security headaches, more frequent purchases and quick checkouts for your customers.
Scale for Growth
Enterprise Edition 2.1 comes with Elasticsearch, one of the most popular enterprise search engines. It supports 33 languages and is designed to handle large catalogs and is intended to easily scale to support enterprise and fast-growing merchants. Setting up Elasticsearch is easy and you will be able to start seeing results right away.
Improve Management Experience
The Magento Admin has been designed to be more user-friendly and help you work more efficiently. There is a new Admin search feature that lets you search for customer and order information in a snap.
Deploy in the Magento Cloud
New Enterprise Cloud Edition lets you focus on creating amazing brand experiences, without worrying about infrastructure. You will get a fully-customizable, secure, and scalable storefront built on AWS and optimized for rapid deployments and performance. Magento gives you the flexibility to deploy your site in whatever environment you choose, including cloud, hosted or on-premises.
