The communication is generally very fast.
The only downside is that there's no changelog for their updated plugins, so when you apply a new update, you have no easy way of knowing what's new, changed or fixed.
I've purchased a number SEAO plugins including facebook clone & advanced events and while it's not identical to facebook my community has commented on how much easier it to use and the features.There have been a few bugs & misunderstanding aspects on my part which the support have quickly fixed or explained. My only criticism is that some of the plugins lack a bit of consistency and could actually be much more powerful but I guess as a developer you have to draw the line at what features you include to avoid bloat & blowing the cost out of reach. All up very happy with these guys & looking to add additional plugins as needed from them
At first I´m a customer of both major plugin creator. Socialengineaddons and socialenginesolutions. It´s my opinion !!!! I´ve bought more then 20 plugins (included extensions) from SEA and more then 7 plugins from Socialenginesolutions and I think the SES Plugins have more and bigger bugs. I don´t like this plugins because you have to contact the support and they help you. The support is great of both! I have only Socialengineaddons plugins on my site. I need support too, because the plugins have bugs too, but the support is a big help. So if you decide between SES and SEAO. SEAO more professionell and better. Thanks for the great support
I have loved the assistance I have received, especially from Shaily, the expert I am working with is very knowledgable and fast. I have been able to see what i have missed and also get some assistance on things that were giving me issues on social engine itself as a platform.
I also love the social engine add-ons website as it has a wide range of products that i am able to employ on my site.
I am happy overall with the service.
We were very new to the product and needed a lot of support. The staff here were very knowledgable and patient.
Over the last 4 months, I have had the pleasure of working with SEAO in building a social network that is based on Islamic values.
To say that the work they have carried out has been better than I had anticipated would be an understatement.
I have shown their work to people and having hyped up what I was building, when people see the final result they are just stunned at how awesome it is.
So, thank you SEAO from me – and congratulations on a great job.
As I was looking to design, build and launch the social network in double quick time, including getting it on a browser version as well as having apps for both iOS and Android devices, SEAO have been extremely accommodating in my requirements and have gone the extra mile to ensure all I was asking for was delivered.
Of course, in such a short space of time, one can’t possibly add in all the features, especially given that I was after a very bespoke structure with a unique user interface and user experience, both of which SEAO had to customise for me.
As my social network is now live across all channels, the feedback from users has been great.
I already have some additional ideas on more functionality and features that I would like to add to my social network, but before I do that I am now getting ideas from users on things they would like to see.
I will incorporate all those findings – and I am sure SEAO will rise to the challenge of taking my social network to the next stage of its evolution.
For me, this is just the start of what I hope will be a healthy and fruitful long term working relationship with the team at SEAO.
Finally, it would be remiss of me not to mention some key SEAO individuals that have helped me on this project – and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Era, Amit, Puja, Tanya and Natasha for bearing with me over the last few months. They are all superstars in my book.
In the past few years, I have worked with a number of SeocialEngine developers, but SocialEngine Addons is just exceptional when it comes to technical support. They have a dedicated team of experts who follow every detail of work with diligence. Their service is amazing! You will definitely love them! Thank you for all the help.
After more thann 6 months using them, I have nothing but good things to say about SEAOs, always great, friendly service.
UI have been working with SEAOs for about 1 year. Their products and customer service are exceptional and Era is a joy to work with.
I had a nightclub that worked very well.
The communication with my clients was done through a simple phpBB forum, it had about 4,000 users.
Organized parties, contests and all kinds of events.
I wanted to improve communication with my clients and installed a social network based on SocialEngine, the response of my clients was very satisfactory.
I gained more customers and my business went up, up and up. Which translated into higher income.
I wanted to improve SocialEngine and add add-ons to make the network much more attractive.
Look for who had more positive ratings, look for those who I thought were the best, in this case I chose SOCIAL ENGINE ADDONS, with all its stars and positive comments seemed the best.
I ignored the negative comments they have, I thought they would be isolated cases.
Here began my nightmare.
After 6 years working with them, the users of my social network went from 4,000 to 800.
Connected daily: 20 users.
My clients went from being 300 people on a Saturday night to 40 people on a Saturday night.
My internet followers left the network because of its malfunction.
And my clients gradually disappeared from my business.
The SOCIAL ENGINE ADDONS add-ons are conflicting, give many problems and their support service is very bad.
I read then all the negative comments they have on SocialEngine and they are the same as I had. What a shame not to have taken them into account.
Now I find myself ruined, 6 years losing clients and money have left me in ruin.
I have no choice but to change my location business and settle in one further away from the center of my city, cheaper and start over.
With 60 years I am, start over.
Start like when I was 20, or worse, with 20 years I started from scratch, with 60 years there are many of my clients who no longer want to know anything about my business, let's say I start with -2,000.
In these 6 years working with SOCIAL ENGINE ADDONS they have learned one thing.
The stars of SOCIAL ENGINE ADDONS are the stars of fear.
You start working with them and at the first installation they are already asking you to leave a positive comment. That's why they have so many stars. You leave them to improve your relationship with them.
The problems begin, the complements give failures, and they are not able to solve them.
You do not leave negative comments, or take away the stars for fear that the site is bursting and because there are always problems to solve.
Many of these add-ons are with code errors that other developers do know how to solve, but SOCIAL ENGINE ADDONS, doesn't know where they are and can't solve them.
They have the immense luck of being in India, where the justice of my country cannot reach.
If they were in Spain they would already be in the Courts denounced by fraud.
If you install a SocialEngine network, DO NOT hire anything with SOCIAL ENGINE ADDONS, its stars will deceive you and you will not be able to see the sunlight.
Hi ANGAR, We would like to apologise for your experience and sorry to hear you were less than satisfied with our product / service. I'm sure there is a reasonable exclamation, providing an exemplary level of customer support is our prime goal and we didn't intend to hang up on you. I've gone through the on-going support ticket and noticed the point regarding the upgrades. The ticket has the subject "UPDATE OF SOCIALENGINE AND PLUGINS SEAO" filed on 20th May with a request to upgrade SE & SEAO plugins, this request was entertained by our technical team and after this point, you continued to file issues / queries in this ticket, and our team has continuously worked on every issues & query and closed it as earliest as possible for you. Now, on 23rd July, you have upgraded SE version along with SEAO plugins at your end knowing that your website has many small custom changes / tweaks and direct upgrade can lead to lost those changes, but you did that from yourself without taking care of this. Then you had mentioned that these upgrades were pending, we as SEAO should do the upgrade from our-self without getting consent from your end. Although the subject of ticket instructs to upgrade the plugin, this doesn't imply that we will keep on upgrading the plugins as soon as there is a new upgrade available for any of the SEAO plugin or SE without a client consent for the same. Upgrades are only performed after receiving a request from the clients. For example, SE recently released 4.10.4 and we have received many requests for performing this upgrade and we have not simply asked from every client we have, that whether they want to upgrade SE or not. It is totally up to the client, we have provided 'plugin upgrade' section in our SEAO core plugin where upgrades can be checked and in case any upgrade is required, a request is filed for the same. In your case, you performed the upgrades at your end without providing any prior information to us. Doing self upgrades without taking any backup can also result in major issues like website crash etc. Regarding issues other than the upgrade one, our support agent has been in constant touch and solutions have also been provided for the reported points. Amongst the reported points there were few requirements which required custom changes and the same was clearly conveyed to you by our support agent. For avoiding the delay and providing fast solutions, our support agent even requested you to come online on LiveChat, but no response was received for this request, we understand you are not comfortable with English language, but we could have managed as we have multiple clients who do not speak English, but we communicate with them in real-time without any hassle. We are always open to work and help you out with any issue related to any of our plugins, SEAO is known for providing a great level of support to the clients. In-fact our support agents are available on LiveChat for providing all the necessary help to you. It will be helpful in understanding the issues well & to and fro communication will be avoided, also you will not need to wait for 12-24 hours for the clarification / help / solution of the reported issues. You may reach us to our support via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on LiveChat. We assure you of continued assistance from our end, but writing a baseless accusation and trying to damage our reputation with wrong points is not good as, we always work for providing the best support to our clients. Thanks!
It was a great pleasure working with Era. I would recommend her support service and the products from Socialengineaddons always!!..
I have been working with SEAO on a longer term project for a few months now, as well as purchasing plugins from them too, and am impressed with how helpful and responsive they are.
I am very happy with the quality of work they provide, and as a developer they are wonderful to team up and work with and communicate with over the live chat. All the team members I have interacted with: Nia, Annie, Twinkle, and more of their other awesome team members are very knowledgeable and create good solutions for anything that is presented to them.
10/10 would recommend,
I have purchased social engine apps from other developer but social engine addons is simply the best great support easy to install apps i will recommend them any time
The best support in the world, the best attendants and also exceptional professionals. Congratulations to all of you. GOD Bless.
I 100% recommend Social Engine Addons. It's a best company I have working with. Thanks you all.!!!!!
We have been using various other plugins for socialengine for some years. And we are currently in the process of switching to socialengineaddons.com plugins. And I am very impressed by the huge range of plugins they have available and the performance and professional functionality they bring to the social engine platform. Socialengine + socialengineplugins.com is 100% better than socialengine alone. So I strongly recommend, if you are using socialengine, get the socialengineaddos.com plugins to totally transform your site in a very wonderful way.
It was a great pleasure working with Shaily. She was very knowledgeable and provided great support to fix our issue. I would recommend her service and the products from Socialengineaddons any time!
I have just completed the first phase of development of Writers Block using the services of SocialEngineAddons. I am very pleased with their work ethic, positive attitude and great business sense. I highly recommend them if you are looking to create a customized mobile app for a SocialEngine network or anything related to custom development and programming. Writers Block is available on the App Store and soon on the Play Store. I am impressed that SocialEngineAddons has so much talent on their team. From gifted programmers all the way to courteous and responsive customer service representatives, SocialEngine Addons will take care of you every step of the way. I worked closely with Shubham (iOS developer) and Aashi (Customer service representative). They are very respectful and accommodating and willing to work around your schedule. They regularly scheduled calls in an effort to learn more about the vision for Writers Block and aid in bringing it to life. Shubham was able to develop exactly what was shown on the mock screenshots and written summaries. Not to mention, he had many ideas on ways the app can be more streamlined in terms of UI and speed. Any bugs that were reported were fixed immediately and the app itself is currently stable and well built. Much thanks to the API developers as well for all the custom features that were requested! My experience with SocialEngineAddons customer service has been nothing short of stellar. Aashi has regularly consulted with the SocialEngineAddons team in delivering favourable outcomes for everyone involved. She's very understanding, focused and delightful to work with. The app submission process, which was handled by Tanya, Twinkle and Zara went smoothly and without any major issues. Overall, I would highly recommend SocialEngineAddons.
We have been working with SEAO for a year.
They initially setup our Dev and PROD instances on AWS as a Docker Container and Elastic Container Service (ECS), using Jenkins.
The setup was completed on time and the instance has been extremely reliable.
We have purchased a number of SEAO’s plug-in features and themes and found the products and their implementation services to be very professional.
They are very collaborative and communicate well, especially being remote.
We are extremely happy with them and will continue to use SEAO for all our SocialEngine requirements.
We've just started with Social Engine Addons but already can feel the difference. These guys are very experienced, quick and their products are impressive.
We've bought all the products from them and currently in the process of setting things up on AWS. I'll write another review when all is installed and working but in the meantime here are the things that impress me:
1. Very good knowledge of Amazon Web Services.
I personally have many years of experience managing sites on regular servers, but AWS proved to be a challenge for me. In theory it should be easy, but since it is so massive, the learning curve would take me months to get it right. SEAO saved us that time. They did LAMP setup and initial demo site deployment in one day.
Here it is: topcollections.com
For those who are new to AWS here is what was done:
EC2, RDS, S3, SSL certificate and DNS servers and probably other things I have no idea of yet. Each part requires a good knowledge/experience of what you want and how to do it right.
2. I am very impressed with how detailed all the plugins are developed and how well everything fits on SEAO demo. Being in software development for two decades I can tell this was a lot of work.
We are yet to find out how many log errors we'll see when site is ready, but given that SEAO is configuring everything themselves on environment of their choice (AWS) I expect a good outcome. Once site is fully operational I'll make another detailed review. We've got all SEAO plugins and a support for a year, so I'll be able to update on our progress.
So far our experience with Social Engines Addons was awesome!
This technology company has figured out what it takes today to partner with a person/company and co-labor with them to bring their visions and dreams to pass. For a technology company to offer fanciful technologies that work is one thing. But to master the installation, application, and ongoing support of those technologies is another. SEAO places themselves in a rare group that does all of these things. They make it possible to be reached a thousand ways for support and questions (through email, Skype, online chat, phone calls, computer screen share, etc.), you name it. As an entrepreneur, we walk the earth with many visions and dreams in our head waiting to give birth to them. I find it is imperative that we find companies like SEAO to partner with - that have the tools, the expertise, and the effective support to assist us in bringing those dreams and visions to pass. With SEAO, they’ve got it figured out!
SOAddons have been really helpful in getting my site going. From installation, to their large selection of adding with cool features, to helping fix glitches, and even helping create custom features.
Iam not a Coder but with this Support is really Easy to get a own SocialMedia. Super fast Support and they help anyway. Tank you for perfect Support
Really lovely people to work with, very helpful and dedicated to supporting, highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.
