Silk Performs Magento Upgrade, While Keeping SAP Business One Integration Working Flawlessly


A great big world? Not for AmScope. The high-profile company is one of the world’s leading suppliers of microscopes and related accessories. From laboratories to classrooms, AmScope products deliver microscopic vividness in a variety of settings. Their customers cover the complete spectrum of disciplines and professions. Scientists, healthcare professionals, industrial inspectors, metallurgists, and jewelers are just some of the countless experts that see very small things much more clearly thanks to AmScope equipment.

Covering this far-reaching territory is no cake walk. To satisfy surging demand, AmScope’s highly-trafficked website offers customers a fittingly comprehensive selection of products. Naturally, extraordinary expertise is required to keep this vast catalog running like a fine-tuned machine. Which is why AmScope called upon Silk.

Silk’s acclaimed Magento Managed services would ensure the top-level website performance required by AmScope. Silk’s overriding mission – provide ongoing support, site maintenance, and a variety of needed enhancements.


Entering the picture after the AmScope’s site launch, Silk is making mobile-responsiveness a top priority. As things stand, AmScope is a long way from being mobile-ready. Google is even providing a dash of added drama to the story – its new algorithm is penalizing the SEO of any unresponsive website. Clearly, AmScope is in the line of fire.

Silk also saw a pressing need for a software upgrade. The modification would take the AmScope site from Magento Community 1.7 to Magento Enterprise 1.14. The existing website is also already integrated with the SAP Business One ERP. Once the Enterprise upgrade is complete, the AmScope site will gain considerable stability, as well as numerous features not offered by Community.


Silk is still in the middle of the implementation. We’ve completed the upgrade without a hitch, porting over all existing data and functions and is still working on the mobile responsiveness of the site.

Additionally, AmScope’s website performance has improved significantly thanks to the stability and added features provided by Magento Enterprise. It’s important to note that after the Enterprise upgrade, AmScope’s prior integration with SAP Business One continued to function with flawless precision.

We’re pleased to say that AmScope continues to rely on Silk for expert Magento support through our Magento Managed Services program. As with all of our other valued partners, we look forward to a long and productive relationship with AmScope.
