New BC Gurus Template by Karim Ardalan

Written by AID+BC on 03-Feb-2014

We have worked with BC Gurus to bring to you a new Business Catalyst coffee shop themed template. This new eCommerce template was built on Bootstrap to be mobile and tablet friendly. Some of the features are a large homepage slider that will help you make an impression on the customer, a store locator, retina-ready icons, upcoming events section, a photo gallery, and much more!

As the vice president of sales and marketing for a consumable pet company web development has become an essential and time consuming activity, especially since it’s a function we need to outsource. Despite thorough research and referrals the first several web development companies we worked with were really a challenge. We experienced everything from exceeding budgeted costs, project running late to simple not receiving replies on immediate issues.

I can’t tell you how lucky we are that we found Karim and AID+BC. He and his corporation are honest, talented and responsive. Gone are the days of waiting a month for a response or being disappointed that the functionalities we discussed aren’t working properly. I outline a project for Karim, send him my copy and design thoughts and I have a great looking, functional website for a reasonable cost in a matter of weeks. We have already developed 3 websites with Karim and look forward to doing more with him in the future.

I can’t recommend Karim and AID+BC strongly enough for anything web development based.
