Magento is an open-source e-commerce platform. It's designed for users with a little more experience in things like coding and web design, so it's not for the faint of heart.
By allowing you to full control, you can create the e-commerce website of your dreams.
The Magento platform is designed with SEO at heart, with backend components and readable code that search engines love. This means that you can rank easier when using Magento.
One of the main draws of Magento for many is the large community that they've curated over the years. There's loads of developers using (and more importantly, discussing) the platform daily, meaning that there's plug-ins for basically everything, and a close-knit community ready to help you use them.
In the right hands, Magento can integrate seamlessly into all sorts of infrastructure that you already use - everything ranging from Sage to Salesforce, you can be sure that Magento will work with whatever you need it to (and if it doesn't work out of the box, a plug-in can be made!).
A Blank Canvas
Magento is often described as one of the most creative e-commerce platforms out there, and for good reason, as it doesn't rely on themes (although you can buy them, if you like). A good developer can delve into the nitty-gritty of code and produce a wonderful, bespoke website that matches your business down to a T.
Get exactly what you want
Sometimes you've got an idea in your head, and, simply put, you don't want anything else. That's completely fine! Using Magento, we can precisely build the e-commerce website of your dreams. Our developers have the experience necessary to get the most out of the platform, meaning that we can take your vision and make it a reality.
The complete package
Magento is a platform that really does allow you to achieve anything (within reason). With its (almost) infinite customisability, you can pick and choose the direction your website takes.
Magento boasts a wide variety of payment gateways, meaning that you can accept payments in a way that suits your business (it can even integrate with Amazon, if you're so inclined).
Looking to expand
If you're looking to build your business into a big brand with a big revenue, then Magento is the platform for you. It might take a little more time and money than other options, but you'll end up with a product that is uniquely yours.

Their direct approach, instant understanding of our needs and consideration of our apprehension towards marketing agencies was very refreshing and strangely reassuring. We trusted our gut and went with Catalyst and I can say we haven't looked back since.
