To whom it may concern
Lutfal Hoque and Champa Khatun (Remote Programmer)
Lutfal and Champa and their team (Remote Programmer) in Kolkata have been working with me since 2003.
Their first project was a pure development project: to rewrite a large ASP/MS-SQL dating site in PHP/MySQL. The difficulty was to transfer the data of 50,000 users from one platform to the other. I had made many enquiries with negative responses before Lutfal said his team could do it. Indeed they did - to my great relief.
In November 2004, I gave them the responsibility for my main business website Net Lawman. I gave them contracts for both development and marketing. Lutfal handled the development and Champa the marketing.
Since that date the business has never looked back. In four years monthly sales have increased from GBP 4,000 to 24,000. This was made possible by Lutfal’s very close and pro-active involvement in our constant new developments and Champa’s expertise in SEO of 5,000 web pages. Of course, I have been delighted with these results.
I have dealt separately with Lutfal and Champa, but their close association has been helpful in making sure each new feature on the website "works" both technically, for users, and in marketing terms.
Lutfal started as an experienced coder and his technical ability has never been questioned. However, I did not expect when we started together, that he was also an imaginative business developer. IT men are no renowned for their imagination. Lutfal’s creativity has helped us in many areas. He has worked for us with a team of between three and five coders.
When Champa started, she admits to having been a novice. However, she is a very bright woman and in no time at all, taught herself a very great deal about all aspects of Internet marketing, and in particular about the constantly changing world of SEO, PPC, and Google. Champa has run our Net Lawman team with up to three assistants.
While new code always may contain bugs, the same cannot be said of Lutfal’s cash dealings. He is always spot on, down to the last Rupee. I have never found an error in any cash statement or account, whether in INR or GBP. He has always been totally fair and utterly honest. Frankly, I long ago stopped checking his figures.
I have decided to bring the expanding business of Net Lawman in house, to be handled from now by my own business. This decision is no reflection on Champa and Lutfal, but merely a matter of future administrative efficiency.
I continue to use Lutfal and Champa on a new B2B website project and look forward to continuing to work with them for many years. If they now have capacity for more work my advice is to snap it up immediately.
