Monotaro was facing performance challenges in its current website 1.9 with high page load time, outages and high index time. In addition to that, there was a delayed migration to Magento 2 with current vendor and there was no documentation for the same. The current website is built in Magento 1 Enterprise version hence adding ~$40k to the cost yearly. Also, Monotaro’s UI/UX was primitive and needed furnishing for better customer journey
