The Review
Feedback summary: 

Planet Web Solution’s work improves Google visibility and brings nearly 50 new leads per month, increasing sales by 100%. Their efforts have also reduced manual work. They have strong coders, capable of producing results quickly when needed and excel in customer service and trustworthiness.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a home furniture, textile, decorative accessories, and rugs manufacturing company based in Jaipur, India. We export all over the world, especially to the US, Australia, and Europe. The company is close to 40 years old.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Planet Web Solutions?

We have worked on several projects with Planet Web Solutions, one of the main ones being the development of our company website, manglam.com. We have also developed a website which is specific to the trade shows we hold in the US. We had been using a very old-fashioned PHP website and had no e-commerce solution at all.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After meeting with Planet Web Solutions and getting their feedback, we made the decision to move forward to a Magento e-commerce website.

The website is a showcase for our products, which customers can add to their wishlists, customize, and so on. A particularly difficult feature we wanted was around customer groups. We work with the biggest discount stores as well as individuals, each with different price points. One very important feature on our website was giving customers login credentials, and selecting which group they belong on the backend for our internal records. They can be retailers, importers, designers, or individual customers, each with their own pricing. Planet Web Solutions implemented this feature, eliminating any confusion regarding pricing. There is much more standardization in our company because of this.

Creating a wishlist was another important feature. Every customer who goes on our website can input the changes he or she would like to have for a particular product in the form of a wishlist. As they create and submit these wishlists, we will receive the exact format of a proforma invoice. This process is completely automatic, whereas it used to be done manually on Excel. It has reduced the time spent by merchandisers and our marketing people.

We have also developed a sales application connected to the same backend, which helps us take orders during tradeshows.

How did you come to work with Planet Web Solutions?

I am based in Jaipur, the same city where Planet Web Solutions is located. I was searching for the top website developers in India and found some good options. I spoke to all of them, but working with a developer from the same city would make for a more comfortable relationship. I booked an appointment with Planet Web Solutions and went from there.

How much have you invested with Planet Web Solutions?

The cost of Planet Web Solutions’ work has been $15,000–$16,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Planet Web Solutions in March 2015. We have created two websites which are live at the moment, and are working on two other pages as well as an iPad application. They will all be integrated with our Magento backend.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Before, we were not searchable on Google, which was a very big problem since there were many competitors with similar names to ours who had top positions, whereas we didn’t exist on Google. It was essential to gain visibility, which Planet Web Solutions was able to do.

Because of the way in which our website had been designed, it required a lot of manual work. We have been able to eliminate one job completely from our merchandising team, so the new site was a very big shift for us.

We have 100% more sales than before. Customers are using the site extensively for selecting products. We receive 20–25 selections per month through the website. People aren’t buying online, but they are sending us screenshots, adding wishlists, and selecting products from our website. We are able to get almost 50 new leads per month through it.

How did Planet Web Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

Their service and backend coding are both exceptional. There used to be delays on our team’s side in delivering information, but Planet Web Solutions followed up with everything we needed to do. Planet Web Solutions’ team even visited us a few times and got all the required information from us. The communication is very good. None of my emails went unanswered.

What did you find most impressive about Planet Web Solutions?

I’ve never considered switching to another company due to the quality and pricing that Planet Web Solutions delivers. They’re very strong in terms of coding, can make anything happen quickly, and they respect our requirements, not taking anything lightly. Not having to remind Planet Web Solutions of the same issue again and again is a very big thing.

There have been a few very urgent projects, including an e-commerce website we built for a particular trade show. We needed to develop it within a week, not the usual two or three months. I explained everything to Planet Web Solutions’ team, and they literally developed the site in four working days. It was functional during launch, but we continued to improve it every day.

Are there any areas Planet Web Solutions could improve?

They could provide some aesthetic design services and work more on the look of the website.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Planet Web Solutions?

I simply think that customers should start working with Planet Web Solutions. They are very professional when it comes to communication, and are responsive and good coders. Whatever the person needs, they should be clear about it. It can often happen that, after starting the project, the client will want a big switch. This creates a problem for the development company, because they may have already chosen the backend and other technology. If there’s a huge sudden shift, then everything could be in vain. My advice is to make a roadmap for the website and take recommendations from Planet Web Solution. They can mention things that the client doesn’t know, and make technological upgrades.

5.0
Overall Score We have created a very good relationship with Planet Web Solutions. They’re 100% trustworthy, and would never make an unethical decision.

Feedback summary: 

Planet Web Solutions executed the firm's vision well and exceeded customer service expectations. They communicated well despite the time difference and responded to changes in less than 48 hours. They delivered a high-quality website for a great price. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CFO of an investment firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Planet Web Solutions?

We wanted to get a website for our firm. Our preference was to have it done on WordPress. This way, any minor changes or wording differences that we wanted on the site could be adjusted by our personnel.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had Planet Web Solutions do two different phases of the website for us. I had contact with mainly one person who was the project manager. It did seem like he had other people helping him out when we staged the site up because I was adding two or three other authorized users to have access to the site to build.

How did you come to work with Planet Web Solutions?

I have a good friend of mine who is big into email and web marketing. He’s a pretty well-known professional in the field. He has a lot of websites built, so I initially asked him if he could build me a website for my company. He said that he didn’t have the time, but he used these guys on Upwork that were really good on projects they had done for him and that I should give them a try. When you get a referral from someone who’s knowledgeable in business, you usually go with it. I also saw Planet Web Solutions' portfolio on Upwork and saw that they had experience and had done a bunch of work too. To me, this is what they do for a living, and they’re very good at it. He provided me Planet Web Solutions' contact information, and I gave them an outline of what I was looking to do on my website. We negotiated and agreed on a price and timeline.

How much have you invested with Planet Web Solutions?

We agreed on a fixed price of under $10,000. When we paid them, we put the money into escrow on Upwork and then released it in certain milestones. Planet Web Solutions completed the first phase for us in two or three weeks. After the first month, they asked if we could release half the money since more than half the website was done. I thought it was fair and released the rest of the money upon completion.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the first part at the beginning of November 2016. We finished the second part yesterday (March 2, 2017). The project got delayed on our end, not on their end whatsoever. Planet Web Solutions would have had everything done per the schedule, but we got held back with other things.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Since we just finished the project yesterday, we haven’t worked on SEO [search engine optimization] to get recognized online yet. The main reason we built the website was so that investors had a website that they could go to to look at us because you need that in this day and age.

Since we are an investment firm and run a hedge fund, we’re not allowed to advertise. However, if someone comes across our website through searching, that’s fair game. That’s why we haven’t shown it to many people. The only people that have seen it are our attorneys to make sure everything was legally correct in there, our family members, and our investors. It’s all been positive feedback from everyone regarding how professional the website looks. The biggest compliment I can give Planet Web Solutions is that I had a vision of what I wanted to be done, and they executed that vision perfectly. I left creative things up to them. I said, “I don’t have an idea of what I want to do with this, so why don’t you put something together and see if I like it?” Even on the things that I asked them to use their creativity on, they did it to my expectations or exceeded them.

How did Planet Web Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

For Planet Web Solutions being over in India, their communication was very good. They spoke English almost natively and understood everything I was saying. There was no communication barrier. We had a time difference, but we were able to work around that pretty easily. We primarily talked to each other by messaging and uploading documents through Upwork’s platform. If I had ideas or changes of what I wanted to be done on the website, I would create videos of my screen showing them what I wanted. I would also send a Word document with an outline of what I was discussing in the video. I did all this because there is a time difference of 10 ½ hours between us. I would put that together at night. The next morning when I would come to work, they would tell me that they had the changes made for me to review. We would then go back and forth that way. There were a couple of times where we spoke on Skype and had a screen sharing session for things we were trying to bounce ideas off or with something I wasn’t 100% sure about.

What did you find most impressive about Planet Web Solutions?

The most impressive thing was the quality of the work for the price that we got it for. Planet Web Solutions was customer oriented. For example, I already paid them out on everything two days ago. I emailed them through Upwork the other day about one or two minor changes I wanted, and they went ahead and made them. When you contact them, they usually get back to you right away. Changes never take longer than a day or two. They’re on point. I deal with a lot of vendors in the US, and I’m constantly waiting, or they’re too backed up and busy. Planet Web Solutions offered the best customer experience I have had, and they’re not even in the US.

Everything I wanted to be done, they did it exactly the way I wanted it. Anything that I gave them freedom or creativity to do, they produced something that was very professional looking that went with the theme of the website. That’s exactly why I wanted them to do that.

Are there any areas Planet Web Solutions could improve?

I don’t have anything bad to say or anything that Planet Web Solutions could improve upon. I am honestly happy with their work, especially for the price, so I can’t really nitpick and say there are one or two bad things I would say about it. Again, I’ve only worked with them on one website; it’s not like I’ve worked with them on a hundred things where I can then say they lack in this department. For me, I haven’t had one problem with Planet Web Solutions whatsoever.

I didn’t have any problems or hiccups in the process. Going through this process, I wouldn’t have expected it to come out exactly the way I wanted it with no problems, but that’s exactly what happened. It’s very rare to have this happen.

5.0

Feedback summary: 

Planet Web Solutions built a solid web platform with only small errors that were quickly fixed. They took responsibility for all issues and were patient with providing free change requests. They offer clients great access to their owner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

After getting a master's degree online through a UK university, I wanted to provide the same service to students from my country, allowing them to gain knowledge online. This is the basis for my company.

I am a co-founder of the company, along with my wife.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Planet Web Solutions?

I approached Planet Web Solutions for help building my platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Planet Web Solutions designed and developed my CakePHP website from scratch. I gathered ideas from similar portals in the US, but I wanted to create a unique style for my own site. Planet Web Solutions was able to implement everything I brought up in our meetings.

How did you come to work with Planet Web Solutions?

I'd had a very bad experience with a local company in Oman, which was not able to develop my website. I was looking for a strong company which could help and support me. I visited a number of websites, including clutch.co, and approached 10–15 companies, ultimately selecting Planet Web Solutions.

How much have you invested with Planet Web Solutions?

The initial cost was $50,000 but it was increased as I requested more features.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Planet Web Solutions at the beginning of 2016. The development time was only seven months, but I came up with more ideas along the way, so the development has been continuous. I am new to this business, so I didn't have a complete idea in the beginning.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I am quite happy with Planet Web Solutions' work. There were a few issues to fix with the website, mainly related to the text being written from right to left in my region. Planet Web Solutions was generally good at fixing any errors.

How did Planet Web Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

Planet Web Solutions worked closely with me, took responsibility, and fixed any problems as soon as possible.

What did you find most impressive about Planet Web Solutions?

I have dealt with 3–4 other Indian companies, and by comparison, I appreciated Planet Web Solutions' fast response time. Whenever I raised any inquiries, the answers were given to me in a short period of time. The other companies needed reminders, and would generally reply within 1–2 days.

Also, Planet Web Solutions' owner was involved with my work directly, whereas I would mainly talk to the managers and programmers when working with the other companies. Whenever I had an issue, Planet Web Solutions' owner took it seriously.

Are there any areas Planet Web Solutions could improve?

Planet Web Solutions could improve price-wise, but I was happy with their communication and work. I have worked with other Indian companies and usually had to relay the same information 3–4 times.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Planet Web Solutions?

Not in particular, but I would recommend Planet Web Solutions to any client. They're a good and fast company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Planet Web Solutions?

We needed to edit and develop a quite complex WordPress theme.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Planet Web Solutions performed our initial customization quite well and developed a custom WordPress site for a different brand of our company. We're also using Planet Web Solutions to build a large bespoke directory-style website using the Laravel framework.

I have dealt directly with our contact from Planet Web Solutions. He looks after the team, so I'm not sure how many resources have worked for us.

How did you come to work with Planet Web Solutions?

We found Planet Web Solutions on Upwork. We became inundated with offers and chose Planet Web Solutions most likely because of their expertise level and price.

How much have you invested with Planet Web Solutions?

The total cost of our work with Planet Web Solutions has been around $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Planet Web Solutions in October 2015. Our most recent project started in August 2016, and we plan to finalize it in October 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We've been very satisfied. Planet Web Solutions's work has made a big impact in our effort to modernize our processes and become more responsive. We have started new projects with Planet Web Solutions on 2 occasions, which is a reflection of our confidence in their service quality.

How did Planet Web Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

Planet Web Solutions has stuck to our timeline and budget so far. As projects go on, I will ask for changes, which has moved our deadlines. I have dealt with our contact from Planet Web Solutions directly on the phone and Skype.

What did you find most impressive about Planet Web Solutions?

We're based in the U.K., and Planet Web Solutions is in India, which has had a good benefit in terms of exchange rates. This was the starting point to our collaboration. Since then, the key for us has been Planet Web Solutions's ability to work during U.K. hours. Correspondence is always very good, and I've never had to restrict it to 2 hours in the morning when our relative working hours happen to coincide.

Are there any areas Planet Web Solutions could improve?

I have used Basecamp and Asana in collaborations with other people. I don't know if Planet Web Solutions uses these tools for other people, and I haven't felt it was important in our case, but they could make the reporting process more organized.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Planet Web Solutions?

I would simply recommend that clients start working with Planet Web Solutions.

We have been in existence for around 7 years, and are expert marketers for SEO [search engine optimization], PPC [pay-per-click], social media and other areas. I am one of the founders and a partner in the agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PlanetWeb Solutions?

We needed assistance with software development and support for our company and our clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have worked together with PlanetWeb on many things, including new development, customer service, and application maintenance.

We have also used PlanetWeb for SEO in the past but eventually took on an in-house department. While we're not doing this with PlanetWeb currently, they still did a great job.

We are the child company of a larger, US-based one, which had experience working with PlanetWeb. When we started out, we evaluated them, as well as a couple of competitors, and ultimately decided to work with PlanetWeb.

This is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have been working with PlanetWeb for 7 years, and have no plans to stop.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

PlanetWeb has worked very hard developing new features and technologies that we came up with, as an agency. PlanetWeb was successful at implementing features, and making our applications sing and dance.

We've worked with PlanetWeb on some very large e-commerce projects. One of the reasons for continuing to work with them is their rapid response to any issues that we experienced through the normal development lifecycle. PlanetWeb has an ability to get things done immediately, through a dedicated team. Whether it was on a night or over the weekend, if we needed to get something done, PlanetWeb worked hard on it.

How did PlanetWeb perform from a project management standpoint?

The ability to translate our ideas into technical applications is definitely a strong point for PlanetWeb.

What did you find most impressive about PlanetWeb Solutions?

As a whole, PlanetWeb is an extremely professional company. They never shied away from a new task or something that they'd never done before. This is important to us, given that we're a creative agency, and tend to come up with things which haven't been done yet. We sometimes struggle to come up with solutions, but, in our ventures with PlanetWeb, they came up with viable options, and made them work at the end of the day.

Are there any areas PlanetWeb Solutions could improve?

We tend to do our design and try to come up with unique products for our clients. When it comes to making creative designs, although PlanetWeb can do it, they could take on younger, more creative talent who can think outside the box.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with PlanetWeb Solutions?

The key in this industry, whether dealing with PlanetWeb or anyone else, is to have a good documentation set before taking on a project, and review all potential pain points. Clients can sometimes ask for things that can conflict with their goals.

I am the president of Adkisson Consulting. Our company provides strategic consulting software applications for design, architecture, and project management.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Planet Web Solutions?

We wanted to find an offshore partner that could help accelerate the development of web-based solutions and mobile apps. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Planet Web Solutions has been our engineering partner for a few contracts. Together, we have built public websites for 2-3 customers. We’ve also developed software-as-a-service business platforms for user management and engagement. I'm currently using Planet Web Solutions for mobile app development for clients. They act as the end-to-end engineering team, building the software as well as helping with design and performing pre-testing.

How did you come to work with Planet Web Solutions?

I was introduced to Planet Web Solutions through one of the development heads from a previous engagement. He continues to work for me and we'd both had experience with offshore development teams. I always felt that it's important to get the recommendation of someone you trust. Through our previous experience, we were able to quickly jump in and pick up a conversation with Planet Web Solutions' team.

Based on their experience with different solutions, they've given suggestions for improving usability and performance. The quality of the delivered products is exceptional compared to other software development projects. I have not been disappointed with any of the products delivered or proposed by Planet Web Solutions.

How did Planet Web Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

The Planet Web Solutions team communicates very well by offshore standards. We have a 12-hour time difference but we still maintain a tight connection. We don't necessarily talk face-to-face or on the phone with Planet Web Solutions. Instead, we have straightforward emails and Skype calls. We usually talk to them early in the morning or evenings.  Using the tools available to us, we send them our requirements, designs, and feedback. Planet Web Solutions has been very attentive to our needs and messages. They've reached out during my time zone and helped me avoid working odd hours. I've worked on projects where the teams wanted to have calls at 12 AM Pacific Time, so I can appreciate Planet Web Solutions' flexibility.

What did you find most impressive about Planet Web Solutions?

While their work product is up there, I've especially appreciated Planet Web Solutions' flexibility and communication skills. That’s in comparison with other offshore teams I've used. I never found myself struggling to understand written or oral communication from Planet Web Solutions. Their team is very clear in our talks, which can be difficult at times because of different dialects and accents. From the developer to the head of the company, Planet Web Solutions is very open. They produce excellent output and are always good at delivering what we asked for.

Are there any areas Planet Web Solutions could improve?

No, since we have straightforward processes. Any areas of improvement are always in terms of resource allocation. This is project-based, though. Overall, Planet Web Solutions has done a great job, and they're attentive to the requirements of our customers.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Planet Web Solutions?

In working with any offshore company, it's important to ensure that communication tools and processes are in place. The project requirements and designs should also be air-tight.

I'm an independent contractor, and I run web projects for a number of companies.

What is your position?

I am the founder of my sole proprietorship.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Planet Web Solutions?

In general, Planet Web are a supplier of programmers, specifically for web projects, in my case. We work on a project-by-project basis. We will take a project, either from its current state to a complete new revision, or from the ground up. 

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

Depending on the budget available, I will also get them to do the initial system tests. They can also provide production-level project management.

How did you come to work with Planet Web Solutions?

It was through a client of mine. I had had contacts with other companies, but the results had been variable. I will stay with Planet Web because they deliver. I would give them a high rating in terms of organization and ability to deliver quality programmers who find it easy to communicate in English.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It was $10,000 to 50,000 for the current project. Previously, it would be $100,000 to 200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I've run five or six projects with them, and the collaboration is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I don't have any hard data in this respect.

How did Planet Web Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

There are certain issues with their complete understanding of the item being developed but, normally, we get there. Although I can provide a system or production spec, it is a question of the understanding of the algorithms involved in getting a particular function to work. Even though you may have the complete idea of what you're trying to do, and do your best to express it in specification, sometimes the technical understanding trips up along the line.

What distinguishes Planet Web Solutions from other providers?

There's certainly a breadth of capability within Planet Web. I haven't explored that fully because they do a lot of Microsoft-based development, in which I don't get involved. They offer a wide range of services.

Is there anything Planet Web Solutions could have improved or done differently?

I've imposed tracking and reporting systems on them. They don't seem to have inherent systems of their own.

Planet Web Solutions has some outstanding qualities that makes them stand out. The level of their involvement in the project is commendable. They have always demonstrated proactive approach and responsive attitude. They are upfront with their innovative ideas and different approaches to suit the industry and the audience.

There have been some very challenging aspects on our projects and Planet Web Solutions has always reached out for solutions and given me exactly what was required. This is one of the best qualities of Planet Web Solutions. They do not give up until they have found the apt solution to any level of complex requirement.

I am personally a perfectionist and for me their attention toward minor details have booster my confidence further each time. Their team culture is admirable. Apart from being knowledgeable and dedicated, I have found all the team members to be polite, courteous, and always smiling. The different teams work very well with each other and have a good attitude and understanding of communication skills, which is paramount for us.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Since being contracted, Planet Web Solutions has provided around 600 hours of work. The team produces high-quality work on difficult systems and is always honest with their work.  While they may charge more than other firms, the quality of work is worth the price.  

BACKGROUND

I am the owner of several e-commerce shopping sites in Europe. We have two very well-known brands and many smaller sites. We sell fashion items, furniture, and much more.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We needed a reliable PHP developer offshore because our market is very expensive. It can be pricey to hire talent in Netherlands. We also needed to design a portable storage device.

SOLUTION

Planet Web Solutions provided PHP development for various websites. They also made a mobile site for me and several web plugins. They also developed a B2B [business-to-business] portal for me.

They have provided about 600 hours of work so far. Their largest projects took about two months to make a new website or system. Their small projects take one week or less. The projects are ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

I am extremely satisfied because Magento is a tough system for many consultants. I went through two bad companies before that failed us. I am very grateful for finding Planet Web Solutions. 

They have very clear and honest communication methods. They always tell you the truth and not just what you want to hear. I could save money with a cheaper firm, but I'm willing to pay more for Planet Web Solution's quality of work.
