Business Catalyst to Wordpress

Making the switch to WordPress?

The BC community is doing a fantastic job bringing together all the possible solutions for migration.

While there are promising options and lots of conversations still to be had, we've decided to move all our small - medium businesses to WordPress.

Why WordPress??

It's pretty simple really. The migration time for small - medium businesses is relatively short, it's open source which stops the lock-in of a SaaS platform and most of all, it's well supported!

But won't security and maintenance bury you?!

In the past it was definitely a concern, but with managed WP hosts and more streamlined technology it's possible to keep on top of these requirements without breaking the bank.

Open Source

If the managed web host goes under, we can just move to another host, simple.

Rapid Development

We've already migrated a number of our websites over, development is fast!

Managed Hosting

Take away the stress of WordPress updates and security. It's affordable too!

Migration

We're offering to migrate any BC website that fits the WordPress model for a fee relative to the complexity of the website. We are also happy to talk about volume discounts if you have a portal of websites.

Redesigns

There are a number of older clients that were due for a redesign anyway so we've taken the opportunity to start fresh - we can help you design a brand new website on WordPress too!

Hosting

If you want to control your own sites through a hosted platform we can recommend who we are using, if you want us to manage the hosting and all the security and maintenance that comes with it, that's fine too.

eCommerce

At this point we still haven't decided on the best replacement for eCommerce websites. It is looking like Shopify will be the popular choice but we are currently investigating the small print costs for different countries.

Timeframes

We are already contracted to move a number of complete partner portals so time frames will be on a case-by-case basis. The plan is to see as many websites as possible off the platform well before the 2020 deadline - just in case.

Outsource

Outsourcing this sort of process carries risk, we get that. We're an Australian based team that have been working on BC since the Good Barry days (Before Adobe). If you want to know more about us or our plans, just get in touch!
