We recently have built a new e-commerce website based on Java EE, that has a few custom API integrations for Inventory, shipping, and credit card processing. The site is currently running on a custom apache tomcat set up on our VPS server. The current version of our website is almost complete, and there are still a solid number of items that we hav...

“Aspire Software seriously failed this project in following regards:
1. failed to deliver as promised. agreed to use an outside professional web design company but did not do so. instead used their internal design and it was way off from our requirement (we even provided them mockups).
2. overuse hours without consulting client - for example, one task they over billed us by nearly 90% without even communicated with us. Pravu even agreed it is against their company policy to bill significantly different from the estimate without asking for approval from client.
3. when we asked Elance to step in investigating the issues with their deliverables and billing, Aspire Software refused to give the codes we already paid; instead they said their computer was attacked by a virus and lost data. However, when we filed a dispute and escalated the case with Elance, within an hour or so they said they recovered the data. Lying is never good and that raised a big question mark about their work ethic.
Overall, possible the worse experience on Elance so far (we spent over 20K on elance for the last couple of years). Cannot say much about their technical expertise because we have not got a chance to test their code yet. But we can say for sure is they have work ethic issue and not being honest about their hours, their promises, and their work professionalism. We lost precious time and money on them. Bad experience and avoid them!”
Freelancer Feedback Comments for Client:
“So far the most unreasonable buyer in my 6 years of freelancing work.
It has been a very bad experience working with Unimex team. We delivered what was promised and achieved all the milestones as per the original plan. There have been several change requests in the original estimates and we tried accommodating them as much as we could.
We had all the details in the accepted proposal we sent. But even after acceptance, they added new stuff which we accepted to build relationship. UI/UX designing was never part of the proposal, but since they sent us the design we converted to HTML and implemented the same for free. Everything was designed as per the given PSD. Few UI stuff were off, but that we agreed to complete it without any charge. They unreasonably filed dispute even after agreeing to work with the new agreement and I lost my 110+ hours of work. ”
