  Once again, Ghafran has delivered a masterpiece.

I was told that what I needed to outsource was too difficult and complex for someone coming in from an outside perspective to grasp and complete.

Nevertheless, Ghafran, grasped, completed, and exceeded expectations.

He constantly goes back over the specs, finding the slightest detail, and making sure that he delivers 100%.

Ghafran takes clear responsibility, and the buck stops at his desk -- even when I had an issue that could have very well been my fault -- Ghafran took responsibility, and made it right.

My hat is off to the man in Virginia. Some day, I will use his services again!

  This coder is very professional, and can be trusted with business critical projects.

He has excellent communications skills, and is very much above average in skills and ability.

He does a great job of keeping you informed of progress, and provides a demo site for you to monitor progress.

His no-nonsense, sense-of-urgency, let's-get-the-job-done is a rare find -- and much appreciated.

I would use him again without hesitation, and highly recommend him!
