Client Review

" One can be a little wary about working with an overseas engineering team, especially since with some teams you don't necessarily know what to expect. But working with Manusis has been excellent for our development -- they are very experienced, professional, and well organized, which means for us that they can take on large projects and execute against a rapid development schedule. "

StoreHippo experience is fantastic! Absolutely no issue, i have some bitter experiences with Zepo that is the reason I moved to StoreHippo and found clear-cut differences here. At StoreHippo you have huge infrastructure available. The developers are very active and they keep the committed timelines. However, I would appreciate if there is more call support than mail support. The admin panel is very user-friendly. All that one needs is there and true to the DIY concept, the help center is elaborate and helps you with any query about the features and functionalities. Am very very happy with the overall experience with StoreHippo. I thank my friend who recommended StoreHippo to me.

This is one of the best part. I never saw this much of support in Zepo. Also I have discussion with my other friends who are into similar activities but from other platforms. My website is doing best because our each and every query and modification request has been answered.
