Over more than two years David has proved to be a reliable, hard working, flexible programmer, delivering quality results in a fast moving, pressured, continuous development environment. On several occasions David has provided support and service at unpleasant times of the day or night to meet the needs of a 24-7 business. Chris Bailey, IT Manager - XDP Express Ltd

Davids such a great man to do business with. Very professional, very helpful in every way. Nothing was to much trouble for him, all emails answered almost before he got them and any problems solved just as quick.

Excellent service, would recommend his services to anyone. The web site he designed for us is fantastic. Cannot speak highly enough of him, thank you very much. Terry Bentley, Gatesland Ltd

Thanks for a job that was exceedingly well done. Following our experience with other web site design companies it was a pleasure to deal with a professional who knows what is required by a growing and successful company. We wish you all the success for the future. Mark Crumpton, Carera Windows Ltd

Just recently I needed his help adding a new SA Gateway to an application that was not created by himself. David was very professional, as always, and was able to complete the task quickly and at a very good rate. Typical of the man, David added one or two tiny extras without any additional costs. I can comfortably and without hesitation recommend David and Maian Script World to anyone or organization requiring web design or development work. Garth West - Owner - Music Shelf SA

One year ago I bought a script from David. Soon I found out that I needed some extra features and I asked David if he could customize it for me. I was afraid that he would ask an expensive fee for the custom work and I was worried that I could not pay it. Pity, because I really liked the script and with a few changes it would be exactly what I needed. When I received Davids reply, it was a huge relief. He was willing to do the customizing for me and he even let me decide about the fee I would like to pay!

David worked fast and efficiently and a few days later I had the program I needed with all the extra features I had asked for. The script works fine for almost one year now and I cannot forget the excellent services David has offered to me. I must say that I have purchased various scripts over the years but I never had this friendly and efficient support. I am 110% satisfied with Davids services and I will gladly do business with him in the future again. Yannis Samatas, Webmaster of explorecrete.com

When I had the initial idea of setting up a web based business, the main problem for me was where to start! I contacted David after a recommendation from a friend and after our first meeting I decided that there was nobody else who should be given the job. The process began by him visiting me at my home so that he could find out exactly how I wanted my pages to look, and I felt straight away that he understood exactly what I wanted, which is why I couldnt be any happier with the final result. I have, and will continue, to recommend his services to anyone.

David obviously prides himself on being ultra efficient, there was never any lack of communication there because he always emailed me every step of the way so that I knew exactly at what stage we were at and what I needed to do for him to help things along. Plus, you can email him anytime you need him and he always gets back to you immediately.

Once the website was completed, he was more than happy to visit me at home again to fully walk me through the website and explain to me how things work. Even in the months since he finished, he is still only a phone call or email away to answer any queries that I have and also to make any changes that I have needed since. Chris Haywood, Sweet Candy Store

Very professional service. Extremely happy with the website build, support & advice provided Chris Gibson, SellEasyBuyEasy.com

I would like to thank David for all the time and help he has given us in getting our website together and working. It needed a custom SQL database adding and other PHP script changes to get it from a Sows Ear to a Silk Purse and he certainly came through for us. We look forward to him working on our future websites and other ideas that come up and can honestly recommend his work to anyone that needs a professionals input or help with their website.

It is also very refreshing to find someone that can DO THE JOB and not just talk about it. Many Thanks. J. Phillips & J. Wood, FW Media Group USA

When I came to David with a need to implement a new functionality in his software, he made the whole process extremely easy for me. From helping me describe properly my needs to discussing implementation options, he made every step as painless as possible.

And seeing as the end-result actually fits my needs and the delivery was well within deadlines I wholeheartedly recommend him for any job Alex Richard
