While being one of the first to implement a cutting-edge PWA technology is always a challenging task, Scandiweb faced additional challenges.

Since customer is operating only within a certain geographical area and due to specifics of the business is heavily relying on the organic traffic sources, it was extremely important to maintain the traffic coming from the search engines.


The development team performed a migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2.3., and implemented the Progressive Web Apps technology using ScandiPWA theme.
The PWA development was done involving Scandiweb’s SEO specialists from the very beginning of the project, ensuring smooth migration process and implementation of SEO best practices.
Additional SEO audits were performed after the launch of the project.
