As a fully integrated Progressive Web Application (PWA) platform for Magento stores, it provides an enhanced digital experience that allows businesses to deliver engaging customer experiences while reaping important performance and scalability benefits.
In this blog post, we’ll walk you through ScandiPWA in detail and provide instructions on installing it for your own branded web app.
