What Clients Are Saying

  • Do you think the investment in us was worthwhile? Why?

    "I think most people look at a WordPress dev shop as small and freelance-like. That is not the case with BuddyBoss. They understand the nuances of WordPress and that alone saves time and money. I actually used a different dev team who had a great story but when it came time to perform nothing was getting done. Michael and his team knocked out a list of items in one month that the previous developer couldn't get done in 6 months."

  • Do you think the investment in us was worthwhile? Why?

    "I think to invest in BuddyBoss is one of the wisest business decisions an internet based company can make. They are extremely easy to work with and they are attentive to my needs. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to develop a well made website quickly and affordably while receiving great customer service throughout the process."

  • What were the additional advantages that you discovered after working with us more regularly?

    "The quick response time has been incredibly valuable. Whenever I run into an issue, I know I can send BuddyBoss an email and get a response in a few hours. Also, since they're so familiar with the goals that I'm trying to achieve with my program, they've been able to offer suggestions to make it work more efficiently."

  • What were the additional advantages that you discovered after working with us more regularly?

    "Since I am a new comer to the website development world, I quickly discovered that there are lots of things that can go wrong when developing and hosting a site. BuddyBoss has been there to help me solve these issues every time they arise."

    West Christianschoolfoodhandler.com

  • What were the additional advantages that you discovered after working with us more regularly?

    "I enjoy the collaborative nature of the relationship. If I have an idea BuddyBoss staff doesn't just do it. They think about it and come back with recommendations that can make it better."

    Claire Bogeruniversity.collibra.com

  • What would your team's workflow or process be like without our services?

    "Well clearly I would have more staff and that would put more pressure on the University in general. By outsourcing I am able to focus on the user and the courses while letting the team that built the theme do what they do best."

    Claire Bogeruniversity.collibra.com

  • During the sales process, what was the most obvious advantage you felt BuddyBoss offered?

    "Their knowledge and expertise with the various components I needed to make the platform work: WordPress, BuddyPress, LearnDash, BadgeOS, WooCommerce, Paid Memberships Pro. They know it all, and more importantly, how they all work together. I no longer had to email multiple developers."

    Brett McKaystrenuouslife.co

  • By working with us can you measure any improvements in revenue, productivity or time savings?

    "Before I started working with BuddyBoss I did not have a functioning website. After I made the decision to work with BuddyBoss I was able to get my site up and running inside of 2 months. I am now doing business with school districts in 20 different states across the United States and directly impacting the meals that are served to more than 800,000 students, every day."

  • By working with us can you measure any improvements in revenue, productivity or time savings?

    "BuddyBoss has allowed me to create a platform that has already helped over 2,000 people improve their lives for the better. What took over a year to accomplish, BuddyBoss was able to do double in the short time I've been working with them. They really cleared up a log jam that I had with the platform."

    Brett McKaystrenuouslife.co

  • By working with us can you measure any improvements in revenue, productivity or time savings?

    "We worked with several other developers who were less focused on a successful outcome for us and more focused on their billable hours. BuddyBoss spent time to understand our needs and provide input about the optimal way to translate those needs into design and development choices."

    Mark Gmcstguru.com

  • Describe a few of the reasons you decided to work with us. What were the criteria you used when making the decision?

    "The fast response time, their knowledge of the various social learning platforms out there, and the diligence they take to ensure they understand exactly what you want. Also, I love how I can give them what I think is a crazy idea and have a working prototype in a few days."

    Brett McKaystrenuouslife.co

  • Describe a few of the reasons you decided to work with us. What were the criteria you used when making the decision?

    "I was impressed by their reputation in the community and involvement in the BuddyPress extension. They have a clear understanding of what we are trying to achieve — high quality output and efficient communication."

About BuddyBoss

BuddyBoss was founded by web developers excited about bringing the social web within reach of regular businesses and organizations, from the local book club to the largest corporations. We believe that businesses wishing to foster an online community should have the freedom to develop their communities under their own brand, rather than setting up shop within the proprietary environment of another company.

Our goal is to spread the word about BuddyPress, to contribute to the BuddyPress community, and to help organizations build fantastic, lively communities for their fans and followers. We are leading the way in empowering companies and organizations to create custom, fully owned and controlled online community websites.

Why We Love BuddyPress

Like WordPress, its parent platform, BuddyPress is open-source and free. BuddyPress has a large library of plugins built specifically for it, and over 50,000 WordPress plugins that can be used in conjunction with it. BuddyPress has a very active developer community, and it's built on a rock-solid platform powering over 25% of the web. BuddyPress is moving forward at a rapid pace and is here to stay.

Because of its fantastic functionality, easy customization, and foundations in the most popular website platform in the world, we're confident that BuddyPress will continue to establish itself as the dominant open-source social networking platform. Since we began with BuddyPress in 2010, it has seen an explosion in popularity, having now been downloaded over 6 million times.
