One of the main reasons Kidde wanted to upgrade to Magento 2 was the enhanced security the new platform would provide. The switch to Magento 2 would also provide Kidde customers a more modern, mobile-responsive user experience.
Our software upgrade factory model – a standardized, repeatable methodology for delivering large-scale development projects – made the move to Magento 2 not only possible, but also cost-effective for Kidde.
We began the migration by updating the company’s configuration at the server level to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). We then built the new, mobile-responsive site to meet the needs of Kidde’s fulfillment teams and customers using a combination of built-in Magento 2 functionality, extensions from the Magento Marketplace, and custom development. The new ShopKidde.com site launched successfully in 2017.
