MageBridge platform

MageBridge adds a bridge between the Joomla! CMS and the Magento e-commerce platform - integrating them visually, but also offering usersync, additional performance, extension integration and much more.

Joomla! is the most popular CMS system, but it's own e-commerce abilities are missing out. Magento is the most popular webshop, but it's CMS capabilities are limited. With MageBridge you combine the best of two worlds. Your webshop can be built using the flexible and user-friendly features of the Joomla! architecture, but still you get the full power of Magento e-commerce.

Using MageBridge, you can optimize your sales process: Magento guarantees that the actual sales process runs flawless, while Joomla! allows you to easily build all the extra marketing around it: Blogging and advertizing is extremely simple in Joomla!. But  you can also optimize your after-sales by subscribing new customers to various newsletters or download-groups, by adding forums and FAQ, by using social extensions to bind customers even more to your shop.
By replacing Magento theming with Joomla! templating, the time you need to develop a custom webdesign is drastically reduced. MageBridge adds various ways of solving common problems, and by that, allows for choosing the right technology for the right job. Also, when looking at PHP development, Joomla! MVC coding is much easier than Magento development, saving you significally more time.
While MageBridge is available only against a fee, the costs are considerably lower then Magento Professional and Magento Enterprise, while containing comparable features. Also, Joomla! development and Joomla! webdesign are costing much less than their Magento counterparts. In the end, MageBridge allows for cost reduction compared to Magento stand-alone projects.
Included with MageBridge are various performance optimization that can be compared with Magento Enterprise: MageBridge includes block caching (and thanks to Joomla! also page caching). It also adds various enhancements like Google API and Protoaculous to lower the bandwidth needed. Various MageBridge tutorials also guide you in the process of making MageBridge faster than Magento.
