We attempted to migrate from Volusion to Magento with a development company and went through an excruciating 6 months. When we launched the new site, nothing was working and the site was extremely slow. That’s when I reached out to Duran Inci from Optimum7.
Optimum7 was able to migrate us to Bigcommerce in 90 days and they took care of all functionality and 301 redirect issues. We did not lose our Google traffic and our organic traffic is now much higher. If you are thinking about migrating platforms, Optimum7 is much better than any company that you might speak to.
Don’t try to save money by going for the lower quote … I lost much more in sales because I didn’t hire the right company in the first place.
Optimum 7 worked with me to update my website and make it easier to navigate. They went over my website and gave me great advice on the areas that needed improvement and how I could make those improvements. They created a mega menu and streamlined the order process with one-page checkout form, among other things.
Optimum 7 create a faceted search to my specs. This replaced a hosted search from Searchspring, which was costing us $500 per month. Even though it wasn’t cheap, we will get ROI relatively quickly not having to pay that enormous rent.
Our online store platform didn’t deliver all the features we were looking for, so in 2016 we began our search for a partner to help us get some additional functionality, and Optimum7 quickly became the only choice. They responded to our request in a very timely fashion, and were upfront and honest in their quoting. Our quote broke down each option and section so it was very clear to understand both the expectations of work and what we were getting for the money.
Some of the items we wanted included a re-design to our site’s checkout page to include an existing customer lookup and login popup window so it would enable faster and easier checkout. A save cart feature was created so shoppers could work on their carts on multiple computers, and a quick reorder feature implemented so we could enable purchasers from large companies to easily enter orders for their employees. These three items were completed with ease and professionalism, as well as constant communication and updates from the entire development team @ Optimum7.
The biggest item we had consulted with Opt7 on was a very custom options tool for one of our key products. We had several variables and a complex If-Then logic tree that was implemented. This tool has enabled us to focus on providing a higher quality of customer service as it enabled customers to complete complex product assembly on our website without our need to be involved in every step. Since this was such a detailed project, Opt7 was very helpful in ensuring we provided the right data, and was always available for a phone call or email to discuss and implement changes. They utilize a platform in the back-end that enables easy and coordinated communication between the developers and our staff to keep the project moving towards completion.
We are very much looking forward to working with Opt7 for a new template and other tweaks to make our site that much better. They are top notch in their category and the first and only choice for a busy ecommerce store looking to make their site the best.
We reached out to Optimum7 to build a bridge between a Fraud software that we desperately wanted to use and our platform, Volusion. Not only did they complete this request with the utmost urgency and professionalism, but the actual solution was integrated seamlessly! We continue to find more and more custom projects for them to work on, and are excited for our relationship with them to last for years!
Optimum7 continues to be a go to partner for us when it comes to enhancing our Volusion Platform eCommerce site. Their team has time and time again proven to be more than capable of producing quality work that meets or exceeds the expectations of each project.
We regularly contract Optimum7 for a wide range of projects. One standout project has been a feature that recommends similar products to purchase based on items that are in a visitor’s cart. The customization that Optimum7 was able to deliver on has increased our add-on sales 10-fold & our average ticket value is up over 10% as a result.
Having engaged in a full site development with Volusion’s e-commerce suite, we needed some special touches and customization that a packaged product just doesn’t always offer. After looking for a development partner for a while we came to Optimum7 and Arthur’s team. The process was painless, I created my wish list, they offered other suggestions as well, we set out a budget and timeline and the work began. SEO fine tuning and product category adjustments were the main to do’s, which was accomplished fairly quickly. Communication during the process was excellent, time line good and end result outstanding. We are looking forward to having additional custom work done on our site in the near future. We are definitely excited to be working with Optimum7 for our website development.
I am one of those small business owners who felt like his website was a money pit with no end in site. I had gone through I don’t know how many web-based companies making promise after promise. I called Arthur and I told him what I’d been through. With much skepticism, I committed to six months of work with him with the ability to cancel at any time. That was over a year ago and am still with then, I have been very happy with Optimum7.
When we decided to upgrade our website, we had several custom requirements that we were unable to find from an out of the box website. So, we decided to go with what suited our company the best and partnered with a third party developer. We started to contact several companies that were recommended to us by our current website host. After interviewing a few of them and having each of them quote on our project, we chose Optimum 7. They were not the cheapest and they were not the most expensive but I had a gut feeling that they were on the level and that their integrity was totally intact.
We have been working with Optimum 7 for over a year now and they have been instrumental in helping us to make our website integrated with all our customer’s specialized needs. One of the biggest challenges was integrating a system that would allow our customer’s to use their ability to charge to a hospital employee account. Optimum 7 integrated a system that allows us to upload a file that in turn will create an account that the hospital employee can access with their credentials and activate the account so they are able to use payroll deduction as one of their payment methods. Being able to offer this payment method and system to verify the employee’s status has increased our on-line sales almost double from last year and we are anticipating that we will even double this year again. This system not only uploads the customer list but also deactivates any employee’s that are no longer eligible for payroll.
I highly recommend Optimum 7 for any integration that you may need for your website.
They stand by their commitment to provide a superior product at a fair market price in a reasonable
Last year, we engaged Optimum7 to create a better search engine for our Volusion store. We list over 100,000 distinct products, and the native search engine was not remotely robust enough to deliver effective search results for our customer base. Some searches would deliver a sea of false hits, while others would not return a result at all.
Optimum7 created an overlay for the Volusion searchbox which not only provided better search results, but included an as-you-type dropdown results field that references custom fields in the product entries which further distinguish one similarly-named product from another.
As a direct result of this modification, more of our customers are ordering product directly through the website, rather than contacting us because they can’t find the product they are looking for. This in turn frees up our employees for tasks other than building shopping carts for our customers.
Optimum7’s custom work has been of great benefit to us, and was absolutely worth the investment.
Over the past year, we’ve worked closely with Optimum7 to add certain customized features on our Volusion website. They’ve completed work on our product page such as adding a spot for multiple photos to show various angles of each item that change color once the user clicks on a swatch, as well as a video. They also helped us create a monogram display function that will show users what their name or monogram will look like on our mono patch in silver or gold foil. They also did some customization for our checkout/cart pages to show an image of the item selected in the chosen color, as well as all mono options selected. Furthermore, they helped us to be able to use the same website for both retail and wholesale customers, which is very convenient for us to not have to maintain two separate websites.
Milad at Optimum 7 has been nothing but helpful throughout the entire process. He’s always eager to brainstorm new customization tasks with us and is very easy to keep in contact with throughout each individual job. We will definitely look to them in the future for all of our customization needs!
Optimum7 has been our “go to” partner for eCommerce development for a number of years helping us develop very complex UX solutions and sophisticated integrations for our website charlestonwrap.com. Having previously work for both eCommerce development firms and again now on the client side, I have been on both sides of the development “table” and I am impressed with both the quality of their work and the quality of their communication. The former can not be understated in this industry. While not the least expensive solution, they have earned my trust and my endorsement
We have a retail product line that has not changed much in the last 10,000 years. So, we like simple and unique solutions to convert our visitors. Optimum 7 keeps our eCommerce brand easy to navigate with custom functionality.
I approached Optimum7 with a mammoth wishlist of features we hoped to integrate into our site. Our goals in sum: To create accurately priced and more user-friendly ordering and to automate art proofing of custom products. I fully anticipated dismissal of our lofty objectives. Shockingly, I received an immediate (and enthusiastic!) reply. As weeks turned into months, the team encountered obstacles but they persevered and delivered on nearly everything we had only dreamed would be possible.
We hired Optimum7 in 2010 and have watched our website search traffic grow over 12 fold. Our business continues to grow and grow. I just hired Optimum7 again to take on one additional site for sure and possibly a 3rd one for a new business unit we are introducing. Optimum7 is very professional in their execution of their strategies, something that was evident from the very first week after they were hired. We look forward to continuing our growth and capitalizing on it further through the new work we have assigned them.
Optimum7 did a great job adding a full custom preview involving our swatches to our Volusion website. Now, our customers can actually see what the swatches look like on our site along with their choices of styles and lettering for monograms before they actually proceed to purchase and check out. It has improved our conversion rate, particularly involving our retail customers. We didn’t realize, until Optimum7 illustrated, that they can actually add functionality not available through Volusion.
We contracted with Optimum7 to make an important change to our check out page at sun-jel.com. Volusion does not provide adequate flexibility to allow for a fully fledged customer loyalty program so we ultimately sought Optimum7 after interviewing several developers. We wanted buyers to see the savings by enrolling before they check out. This meant an alternate pre-checkout calculation; something Volusion doesn’t offer. Optimum7 got this done for us and we are very pleased.
Optimum7 helped us navigate through a very complex integration for us at MRP. We had key database information required by the Volusion platform that needed to be reformatted and some that was missing. However, we could not touch the Volusion code. We contracted with Optimum7 and they worked this through with us step-by-step. They created a web service for us to combine all of the pieces of information together to populate our database. This resulted in 1000’s of indexed products allowing MRP to bring our large and complex inventory on line in our new e-commerce store.
We are so glad we used Optimum 7 to completely convert our website from Dreamweaver to the Volusion platform. They were very professional, very cost effective and delivered on time. We would highly recommend using Optimum 7.
We are more than pleased with the custom programming that Optimum7 has developed for our company. We started working with Optimum7 over four years ago when we asked them to develop a small technical project for our company. Over time our confidence and partnership with their team has grown to the point we have asked Optimum 7 to work on projects that are core to the success of our company. Optimum7 has redesigned our website, developed custom advertising and search modules for our site, optimized our quoting process, and programmed systems to simplify and automate our accounts receivables. These projects have allowed us to shrink our quote to cash flow cycle time from 90 days to 60 days and set us up for future growth.
Optimum 7 has also helped us set up, develop custom programming for the Zoho CRM system. By integrating Zoho CRM with our Volusion web store, we are able to seamlessly maintain contact information to assist with our marketing programs and improve our sales closure rate.
At a time when small businesses have to compete harder everyday to remain relevant, it is important to find good partners who can help you get you where you need to be.
We consider Optimum7 true partners of ours in business and I highly recommend them.
I have been very impressed with Optimum7’s work with my website and my law firm. I see improvements in our traffic month in and month out in our visibility and website traffic. It has had significant effects. Recently 2 significant events occurred which can be credited to the work of Optimum7. Firstly, we received a major new case involving paralysis valued at over 10 million dollars that resulted from an inquiry directly from our website. Secondly, my firm was thoroughly researched online by one of the top US law firms for a major case. We received the case based on the online reputation and website quality as assessed by the hiring law firm. Optimum7’s expert Website Marketing, Reputation Management and Maintenance has given me great confidence in our potential online moving forward. Anyone seeking genuine results online should freely seek Optimum7’s guidance and expertise.
Optimum7 has provided me expert SEO consultation and services over the past year. They really took ownership of the entire process and have proven to me that they have the “chops” to consistently drive business results for my company. Its great to have a strategic partner like Optimum7 as they have freed me to focus on other key areas of my business with the confidence and the peace of mind that I will continually be improving my online presence and business. Traffic is double over the same period last year (2010) and sales are up 400%. Really great stuff!
Optimum7 has been able to integrate a product customization feature to show our customer a preview of their custom designed product before adding to cart. This has been an invaluable for both us and our customers.
Optimum7 is a great team of technology experts who are up for any challenge! We are in the process of designing two new e-commerce sites with Volusion and contacted Optimum 7 to develop a custom API that would allow us to do forced minimums for our wholesale customers. Of all of the companies I contacted about this project, Optimum 7 was the most helpful answering all of my questions up front and seemed the most knowledgeable about the Volusion platform. The entire process of doing business with them was very easy and professional and they were able to deliver what they promised on time and on budget. Julian and his team of programmers are excellent and they all kept me posted on the project’s progress regularly. Arthur was incredibly helpful as well and was always ready to chat with me any time I needed anything or had questions. Very nice team to work with! I am a very picky person, so please know that I did a ton of research before committing to Optimum 7 because I didn’t want to get let down. But the project went great and we look forward to discussing additional projects and integrations with them in the near future.
To the entire Optimum7 team – I want to deeply thank you for your persistence, your imagination and your efforts. You had taken on a task, and you were simply not willing to give up on it. As you have noted, the task is never completed. But we have reached a stage that lets us know that it has been worthwhile. We can only expect even better results in the future that should translate into a more successful Arlyn Scales. Hopefully, that will also reflect back to continuing success for Optimum7.
After spending a few weeks reaching out to many Volusion partners to create my custom functionality I settled on Optimum 7. I approached the project with great detail and expectations. While prices and personalities varied greatly between companies, I felt Optimum 7 had “all the right stuff” to get the job done as expected and without any issues. I came to that conclusion after comparing their live custom work to some of the others as well as a being able to discuss this project with one of their programming team leaders that would oversee the work. Now that the project is finished, I must say I’m am so thankful that I chose Optimum 7. The project was executed quickly, I was kept in the loop all the way through via their project management system. They even added a functionality “wish” of mine that I mentioned because they still had a bit of time left over from the initial quoted hours. That doesn’t only show me that they are honest on their timing but that they love to make their clients overjoyed. And overjoyed I was! I’ve worked with many 3rd party development companies for custom web-store work over the years and Optimum 7 definitely stands out above the rest. Great Job Guys! I am no longer missing the functionality my competitors have!
