It was expected outcome and timely delivered. They are good at communication and client services. Project was smooth enough to develop, communication was excellent. They always ask too many question to reach the correct destination. Would like to hire them again for next Business.
The team manages the project transparently and keeps an open line of communication. In addition to going above and beyond, they're also able to relay technical information in layman's terms.
They offered a number of possibilities which I didn't expect while customizing a standard Shopware Theme.
The team is knowledgeable and always answered all my queries in the timely manner. I would recommend them for affordable and safe migration services.
