What do you like about Magento?

This is one of the best tools of electronic commerce, with the implementation of this tool you can create a personalized virtual store site giving it the style you want. This impressive platform apart from being a great tool for managing virtual stores has a powerful content and database management, giving you the possibility to manage your own inventory, on the other hand it allows you to manage discounts, promosiones, offers, etc.

It is the most powerful for its product possibilities and configuration options.
There are references of connectors between Magentos and ERPs of high level type Navition or Open ERP.
You have many templates created for this CMS, which sometimes facilitates the choice of structures of the online store project.

What do you dislike about Magento?

The first of all, the server load. A very powerful server is required.
Understanding the programming and the system with which it is created is complicated.
It also has problems in the automated payment gateway modules.
It is the most expensive of all, a basic license is in the order of $ 14,400.
It is American, oriented to that type of users.
Control panel too ambitious and complex.
In short I think it could be said that Magento do it many times due to the client's obligation, since we, unless we fully control all the variables and go with very high budgets, we do not like to work with him too much. We prefer our personalized development, which will allow us to go directly to where we want.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Magento solve?

Normally in an ecommerce to sell works better the SEO or the SEM, although of course it depends on the area of your electronic commerce.

Improve the web usability of my site.

Increase the ease of use of the site.

With the implementation of this tool I am free to walk around several cities offering my products and at the same time be in one place without being able to reach the people I want. With the implementation of the same online level I can reach anywhere from my office.
