challenge

Implant Direct, one of the fastest growing major dental implant companies, offers a broad range of surgical, prosthetic and regenerative solutions. Founded by implantology pioneer, Dr. Gerald Niznick and a member of the KaVo Kerr Group, Implant Direct continues a rich tradition of innovation. The company provides high-quality products with simplified procedures at calue-added prices in over 40 countries worldwide. 
 
In preparation for a migration to Magento 2.1, Implant Direct partnered with Guidance to conduct a detailed code audit, apply critical security patches, update extensions for comparability and migrate to a new hosting solution.  They also needed ongoing maintenance to migrate their servers. 

solution

Guidance worked closely with Implant Direct to understand their business practices and correct the previous developer’s coding to best practices. This allowed Implant Direct and Guidance to update extensions efficiently, move them to Amazon Web Servers (AWS), and apply security patches where needed.
