Thank you so much for your great work on our project. I was in a real bind when our site went down and you were very accommodating in getting a temporary site and then creating our final e-commerce site. It looks great and you were easy to work with. It came on budget and quicker than I expected – as a bonus, the site looks great.

Thank you!

Phillip Rosebrook JR

Thank you for all this info and for continually responding to our needs. I’m always grateful for the way you handle yourself and have expressed this again to John. You have integrity, work hard, make no pretenses. I just want you know how much I appreciate that.

After spending 10’s of thousands of dollars with unprofessional and overpriced programmers, I was thrilled to discover Nine Planets. Not only are they reasonably priced, they also manage every detail and get the job done quickly. Nine Planets has developed a number of very sophisticated databases for my online businesses. In every case they have responded quickly and exceeded my very specific requirements. There is nobody better and they won’t let you down.
