A tale of migration, innovation, and growth.

About Cygnus Technologies

Established in 1997, Cygnus Technologies is one of the leading providers of assays and services for determining and characterizing impurities in biopharmaceuticals. The company serves a number of firms pertaining to the medical, pharmaceutical, gene therapy, biotech, and other similar industries. Cygnus Technologies helps companies throughout the lifecycle of the new therapeutics; from product development to market distribution, Cygnus is involved in every step along the way. Cygnus was acquired by Maravai Lifesciences in 2016.

The Problem that Got Them Thinking

During the migration journey, a set of challenges came to light. There was no mechanism to cater to backdated orders, a critical feature for a company dealing with advanced biotech solutions. Additionally, the absence of tier/customer-based pricing, UI/UX issues, and a lengthy checkout process posed obstacles to the seamless user experience Cygnus and Maravai aspired to provide.

Leveraging Magento’s Potential

The decision to move to Magento 2 was a strategic one. The platform offered built-in features that could catapult Cygnus Technologies to new heights. The 360-search capability within the website was a game-changer, allowing users to navigate seamlessly and find relevant information with ease.
