Adobe released an important notification regarding their development and ongoing support for Business Catalyst in March of 2018.
From September 2021, Adobe will no longer support or host Business Catalyst websites and are encouraging customers using the Business Catalyst platform to download their data and migrate to other systems well before the September 2021 end of life.
If you're currently using Business Catalyst as your website platform, we have a number of migration options that can help you from simple sites to full e-commerce sites and those with numerous web apps.
As a leading web design agency, we've been an Adobe Business Catalyst Premium Partner since 2009, so it's safe to say we know BC inside-out and back-to-front. In addition, we have expertise in WordPress, developing custom themes and we are also an Umbraco Certified Partner, one of the world's leading CMS's.
All the sites shown below have been migrated from BC, just click to see for yourself how you can have a beautiful responsive site with incredible functionality just as it was in BC.

The site was built in Business Catalyst a few years ago, however, following the Business Catalyst EOL announcement, we upgraded the framework from Bootstrap V2 to V3 for an upgraded mobile experience and migrated to Umbraco Cloud, recreating the numerous Web Apps we'd developed in BC. The client has an ongoing support contract in place which covered the migration work.

This site was built in Business Catalyst recently, however, following the Business Catalyst EOL announcement, we migrated the site to WordPress which also allowed us to make some upgrades to the mobile layouts along with some additional animation and integrated our Email Marketing system.
