Focused on the highest standards of technical Magento Development
All of our developers are Magento Certified developers. This qualification assures you that they have the full and deep understanding of Magento that is required to be able to work effectively with the platform, build things according to best practice and have the skills to resolve issues effectively.
Edmonds Commerce's developers are Zend Certified Engineers. This accreditation assures you that, as a company, Edmonds Commerce meets the standards for PHP set by Zend and has a company wide commitment to the PHP platform.
We keep a tight focus on our core speciality rather than being a
jack of all trades full service agency
Our unique selling point is our high level of focus on the technical aspects of building, updating and fixing a web site. This comes under the general heading of "web development".
In addition to this it's worth mentioning that we have a deep understanding and make regular use of the Git version control system and are also happy to use Subversion, Mercurial or any other system that your project might already be using. Version control is an important part of keeping control of a software development project. Often the first thing to do when diagnosing any kind of code issue is to simply look at the git logs.
Our clients include a range of e-commerce business, digital agencies and more who trust us to handle or supplement their technical development requirements
If you have an e-commerce business and you would like to know there is someone you can call to resolve your issues and assist you with developing and growing your business then we can help. We can provide the technical know how and reliable service you need to handle the complicated stuff. We are more than happy to supplement your in house team or work with your other digital suppliers to provide the technical resource you need.
E-Commerce businesses generally are aware that there are always things to work on including bug fixes, extension installations, performance optimisation, training and support. Having a reliable on going resource that you can call upon provides you with the stability and security you need.
Under our White Label services, we work with a range of digital agencies across the globe to assist with things like design implementation, bug fixing, SEO improvements and more.
As a digital agency you are no doubt aware how hard it can be to recruit skilled PHP and Magento developers. You can of course use contractors however they can be very expensive and by their nature are only ever temporary which can make providing ongoing support and maintenance to your clients a potential problem.
Digital agencies use Edmonds Commerce to provide a consistent and reliable resource to supplement their in house teams and to handle the more complex tasks that come up.
As a web designer you put time, effort and emotion into providing your clients with a design that meets their requirements and will provide their customers with a comfortable and reassuring purchase process. Once those designs are created then a Magento web development agency such as Edmonds Commerce can take your vision and implement it as a highly performant Magento theme built to the highest standards.
Search engine optimisation is becoming increasingly complex, and more difficult to tread the correct line ensuring maximum on page optimisation without triggering any over optimisation penalties. Magento, whilst shipping with some great SEO features as standard, is not always perfect. We will work with you to diagnose SEO issues on your site and ensure you get the best exposure possible.
Checkout Down, Disaster Recovery or Critical Bug Fix - We can Help, Today
At Edmonds Commerce we understand how critical it is that an e-commerce website stays up and transactional at all times.
There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing customers who would like to place orders being unable to do so.
We can assist with all kinds of critical errors and can do so very quickly. We operate a special emergency contract service
where we will fast track your project and can allocate 2-3 hours or more on the same day by utilising developer overtime.
We will thoroughly examine your project or website for Security, Performance and Code Quality issues and Provide you with Recommended Solutions
There are all kinds of good reasons to get your project thoroughly audited by an impartial third party. Our audit service will provide you with a list of recommended improvements and will highlight any issues and concerns that we find.
We use a combination of custom tools and manual checking to find common problems and also look at your custom theme and module work to make sure things are being done the right way and will not cause you problems in the future.
We generally recommend that new clients make use of this service so that we can gain a good understanding of where you are at right now and can then work with you to resolve problems and make improvements.
We will look for security issues such as SQL injection and cross site scripting problems. We will also look for developer tools such as phpMyAdmin and others that have been left unnecessarily open to the internet and easy for attackers to find and try to break into. Simple issues we will just fix immediately. If we see something very serious we will also look to fix immediately, with your approval.
Care needs to be taken with large complex systems such as Magento to make sure that custom code is not having an excessively negative impact on performance. It is not uncommon for a simple module such as a "best sellers list" to contribute an extra couple of seconds to the loading time of a page. When page load times are so crucial for high conversion rates and good SEO results then this kind of detrimental effect can be devastating.
We will review custom theme and module work for general code quality. Magento has a well established set of best practices which, when correctly adhered to, means that your store is likely to be more stable, easier to upgrade and generally better to work with. On the contrary, if things are done badly and against best practices then this can cause future problems and can also impact performance and security concerns.
An important, but often overlooked part of running an online business, is ensuring that critical data is being backed up rigorously and also that code changes are properly tracked and audited. Backup is one of those things you hope you never need, but if you do, it absolutely must be right. Code control keeps your project code tracked with a clear audit trail and the ability for multiple parties to work on the code without clashing.
As part of the audit we will also look at how your server is set up. Systems such as Magento really demand an optimised server configuration to perform at their best. We will look at how things are currently set up and can list the improvements we would suggest to improve performance and security.
We will look at the way your site is working with regards to SEO and on page SEO factors. There are lots of features in systems such as Magento that provide search engine optimisation functionality. However, like any complex system there are also lots of ways to inadvertently cause SEO problems. We will look for common issues and also give your site a general overview in terms of SEO. If required we can provide an SEO specific in-depth audit as a stand alone task.

We are a small team of UK based developers, here to help you.
Based in the heart of West Yorkshire in the UK, Edmonds Commerce are a small team of skilled developers focusing on PHP and e-commerce. We work together as a team and are carefully managed and nurtured by Nolwenn, our Managing Director.
We have been in business since around 2007. Originally Joseph launched Edmonds Commerce as a sole trader however the business grew from strength to strength and before long he needed help. Nolwenn quit her job and came on board to help handle things and allow Joseph to focus on the development work that is our core offering.
Since that time we have employed a few different developers. Some have come and gone and currently we have a nice team of quality and experienced developers who have met our high standards of quality and expertise and we feel happy to offer their services to you.
Our focus has and continues to be on the technical aspects of managing and supporting a web site. It's not for everyone, it certainly requires a certain mind set but we love the intellectual challenge and the reward of using our skills to help other people run their businesses.
