THE MAGENTO TOOLS
YOU NEED TO SUCCEED
AT EVERY LEVEL
Welcome to the Extendware Magento Partner and Resource section, a curated list of the tools and websites we strongly recommend for building and optimizing your Magento business.
Many of the resources listed here are crucial to running our business (or were crucial to developing Extendware to where it is today).
Before digging into the awesome resources we know and trust, an important disclosure.
All of our Extendware Magento websites are hosted on Nexcess. Why? Because they make it incredibly easy to get a new site up and running with their 1-click installation. Nexcess is stable, secure, and scalable. Oh, and they’re blazing fast compared to all the other hosts we tried.
We highly recommend using Nexcess for your Magento store website, and you can get started now at $19.95/month with their Shared Plan for small Magento stores.
Picreel is our newest recommendation and it is easily the best CRO tool set for Magento stores. We first noticed how well Picreel worked on a competitor site and have since brought it into our business. The benefit of Picreel is not only in how well it recovers site visitors that have left your site, but also how well it does in recognizing exit behavior and stopping potential customers from leaving your site in the first place.
TemplateMonster is an A-size depot of website templates – more than 26,000 designs to choose from. Since coming up in May 2002, we’ve gone partners with Magento, Drupal, WordPress, PrestaShop, Joomla, WooCommerce, and many more. 1,5 million clients were served during this time. Web templates + installation + hosting + customization + Search Engine Optimization + copywriting — all these services you can always get at TemplateMonster.com.
Groove is our number one recommendation for customer service management. We have found it better and easier to use than other competitors, like ZenDesk. Choosing the right Customer Service Ticket management system can be crucial, because changing providers is incredibly painful. Trust us on this one.Although there are many customer service help tools available – and more every day – we’re comfortable recommending Groove as your long term solution.

Excel Software is a second generation of Business Forms management software designed to streamline and integrate the processes of an order beginning with the estimate, through the entry of the order, tracking it’s steps through the manufacturing process to the shipping dock, right on through to the invoicing and accounting aspects.
