Built for rapid and cost-effective innovation, the platform combines rich, out-of-the-box functionality, enterprise performance and scale, and powerful business tools to keep you ahead of increasingly complex commerce operations and growing customer demands.

Here’s a list of Magento Enterprise features:

Feature Highlights

Describes powerful features that will help you rapidly grow your business.

Customer Segmentation and Personalization

Create personalized shopping experiences that boost conversion rates by dynamically displaying content, promotions, and pricing to specific customers based on properties such as their location, gender, order history, lifetime purchase value, wish list items, and more. You can also target unknown site visitors based on the products they have viewed or items in their cart.

Dynamic Rule-Based Product Relations

Set automated rules to determine which products to present as up-sells, cross-sells, and related products to each customer segment. Rules are easily administered through a condition-based tool allowing you to effortlessly target product suggestions to increase sales and average order values.

Content Staging and Preview

Increase sales and productivity by enabling your business teams to easily create, preview, and schedule a wide range of content updates without involving IT. Preview all changes by date or store view to guarantee a flawless shopper experience and optimize the timing and impact of site updates by managing all changes through a timeline dashboard. Automatically deploy updates at scheduled times for greater efficiency.

Visual Merchandising

Optimize product category pages to drive higher sales by arranging products with a simple drag-and-drop interface or sorting rules that order products by best seller, color, highest margin, or newest addition. Save time by setting rules to automatically assign products to specific categories based on their attributes, such as brand, price, or date created.

Elasticsearch

Handle large catalogs and easily scale search capacity as queries grow with integrated Elasticsearch technology. Set-up is fast and global deployments are simple with support for 33 languages out of the box. Elasticsearch offers suggestions for customer misspellings, support for stop words and attribute weighting, and synonym management via the Magento Admin to increase relevancy and conversions.

Responsive Design Themes

Quickly create a website optimized for any device by leveraging built-in responsive design reference themes. The responsive themes adapt and adjust how menus, images, checkout and other features are displayed to fit desktop, laptop, tablet, and mobile device screens. They are touch-friendly, easily customized, and offer SEO advantages.

Flexible Deployment Options

Choose to deploy your Magento software in whatever environment suits your goals and operations best, including cloud, 3rd party hosting, and on premises. New Magento cloud service, Enterprise Cloud Edition, enables rapid deployment of fully customizable, secure, and scalable web storefronts on a redundant, AWS-based hosting and managed services infrastructure that is optimized for performance and resilience.

Multiple Master Databases

Scale the database tier of your Magento application by using separate master databases to support checkout, order management, and product data. This allows different functional areas to be scaled independently and ensures that merchandising and order management activities never impact the shopper’s ability to browse and make purchases on the website.

Varnish Page Caching

Accelerate your site performance with integrated Varnish page caching. Varnish provides a very fast and efficient way to serve content to dramatically decrease response time, while also reducing the load on your Magento servers. Magento fully supports and provides Varnish configuration files out-of-the-box to make it easy to implement.

Powerful Admin Experience

Work efficiently with a modern and intuitive user interface. A dashboard lets you monitor your business with quick access to sales, order, search term and best-selling product data. Enhanced navigation and search makes it easy to find information, and you can configure and save different views of order and customer management screens to speed up day-to-day tasks.

Technical and Account Support

Benefit from a team of experts dedicated to helping you succeed. Magento Technical Support is available 24×7 to help you quickly resolve technical issues and questions, and dedicated Account Managers get to know your business so that they can point you to the right resources and help you get the most out of your Magento platform.
