Design Considerations: Platform Upgrade vs. New Build

In this section learn what to consider when making design decisions based on if the project is an existing Mobify build or a new Progressive Mobile build.

Adding features or building from scratch

The first thing to consider before your kickoff meeting is the type of project you will be doing—is this a customer’s first Mobify implementation? Or are they an existing customer being upgraded to the Mobify Platform? Moving forward, you will only create Progressive Mobile web builds and Progressive Mobile apps, but there are things to consider between upgrades and new builds:
