"After building a business with Volusion over 7 years, the platform had fallen well behind. This, combined with an integration that was about to be unsupported due to Volusion's failure to remain current, was about to put our business at risk. Time was of the essence, and we required a migration to move our 7 year history and our 5000 plus products, all our customers and over 5000+ product reviews. This was going to be a major task that not only meant we needed someone that was experienced but also good at what they do. We needed a facelift but still wanted our website to feel familiar yet also bring it forward to lead the field. The Hope Factory did a flawless job within a time frame that we did not expect them to be able to achieve. Gati and Rax from The Hope Factory were our go-to on basecamp and the training, development, migration and then going live all went without a hitch. There were a couple of tweaks that needed doing as there always are, and they did these quickly. We would highly recommend The Hope Factory for their professionalism, great communication, and overall exceptional result for us. We are very happy and very grateful that we found The Hope Factory."
-John Reddicliffe, The Tech Den

-Scott Haywood, Tontine Bedding Australia

The Team from The Hope Factory were unbelievable, reassuring and confident every step of the way.

A special mention to Gati who's informative videos and tutoring will ensure we not only have a power website but also know how to use all of its functions. Thank you"

Raksha handled my project and was amazing to deal with, everything went smoothly and we launched 2 weeks earlier than expected (with a database of over 30000 products and a migration included).

I had already made a website through Shopify myself and it was ok but we needed better. We got in touch with Hope Factory and at first we were a bit skeptical because of past experiences but once we signed on they were awesome to deal with any really knew what they were doing. We worked with Bhumika and she was great, always reachable and always happy to help. The website looks great and is exactly what we were after.

Raksha was excellent to deal with. She performed the changes I required in a timely and professional manner. She is very friendly person and I really enjoyed working with her.

At the beginning they provided extensive information and gave us all the info we needed to outline what they'd be doing for us, how they worked, their expectations from us as a client and vice versa. Everything was so professional and nothing was left in the dark. From there during the design period, the central dashboard/communications system was fantastic. It provided visibility on where our team members where at, what they needed from us etc. It was great working back and forth on there as everyone was always across what was happening. We had a very tight turnaround deadline when we decided to launch and the support we got was fantastic and met with positivity and a great attitude. Even when we had issues with PayPal from our end, The Hope Factory troubleshooted and worked their very best in rectifying all the issues and getting our website working 100%. We couldn't recommend them any higher - and definitely will be using their services ongoing and on any future projects. Thanks for a 5-star service!"
