Craig Ferguson | Director at Bermuda

I was referred Abdel through a friend in Cayman. I had used other developers here for other projects.

I wanted something very customized and not off the shelf. I was concerned with the work being done remotely. I shouldn’t have worried, Abdel was responsive, professional and delivered on every request. Even with the time difference he was always quick to respond even when he was on holiday.

He gave excellent guidance and support throughout the process. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough to anyone. Our website received rave reviews.
