Although no browser is necessary to visit a PWA website, it still appears in search results and can be accessed from Google or other systems.

  • Great Accessibility

We’ve already mentioned that a ScandiPWA Magento 2 store is accessible on any device, in any network conditions. Besides, no download is required. Thus, the best possible accessibility is achieved. 

Why is PWA the way forward?

PWA is a Google initiative technology that from next year the company will be downgrading sites that do not adapt to this new technology, therefore reducing the organic search on the Google engine. An online business must be on PWA as soon as possible if they want to improve their competitive edge.

Our relationship with ScandiPWA

We came across Scandi around a year ago where they were developing the Scandi PWA, being a year or so into it at that time. It was early days, but we found it interesting what they were doing and wanted to be a part of this technological innovation. Their focus was to create a PWA theme closest to the core of Magento, which, being a Magento focused Agency, fit perfectly with our needs. Since their launch a few months ago, they’ve created many sites that are incredibly fast. After testing their theme for ourselves, we had no choice but to become partners, and we’re so excited to see where this relationship will lead us.

What’s StreamMarket doing to improve PWA?

We’ve been researching PWA for about a year and a half or so, setting aside a core group to investigate this technology internally. It’s been incredibly insightful. We investigated all aspects ScandiPWA; the feedback has been fantastic; they’ve done astounding things in creating this theme. Based on our findings, we had no other choice to pursue ScandiPWA as the theme for our clients and us. There were a few different themes and products in the market available. However, they don’t follow Magento rules, ultimately creating my manual intervention, spending more time and money to resolve these issues. With Scandi, it’s the closest to Magento’s practices; it’s the only way forward where Magento and PWA are concerned. 

ScandiPWA is continuously improving its platform, similar to Magento; it’s a community. As a partner with Scandi, we’ll be working closely with them, communicating effectively to improve anywhere possible. A lot of 3rd party extensions won’t be compatible with Scandi, to begin with, knowing this they’ve come up with a great solution where they’ve created a marketplace where companies can submit their extensions that are compatible with their theme. This shows great initiative on their part, ultimately reducing the development time to integrate the third-party extensions. On average, our clients use five to seven extensions, so to incorporate each one of them could take days or even weeks. By utilising this community we’ll be able to reduce the development work on our part, as StreamMarket, we’ll undoubtedly be contributing.

In Conclusion..

Our goal is to continuously be improving and taking advantage of technological advancements that can further develop the service we provide for our clients on the Magento platform. PWA is the way forward for all eCommerce businesses, and we find our goals coincide well with ScandiPWA’s. In the upcoming months, we look forward to building a solid relationship with them and launch our first PWA innovation, following that all future projects will be on PWA. We believe honesty and transparency is the way forward in all that we do so we want to deliver that to our clients as soon as we’re able.
