Planner Excel Tools (Payless Headquarters)

Ben B | 5/16/13

I was promoted quickly at Payless to a planner role in the International Athletics Department. In addition to my responsibilities of planning and buying shoes, I redesigned almost every excel tool that international planners used. One tool in particular took massive amounts of data and summarized it in easy-to-use charts and graphs. This allowed planners Read More >>

I reached out to Buink after finding Ben’s name in a local developer/consultant listing in 2017, and I have to say, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Buink. Ben consistently understands not just the development task laid in front of him but the business application behind the task. I’ve never felt more comfortable with a development team than I do with Buink. I truly feel Ben and his team are integral partners in the success of my business.read more

Buink saved my company's bacon at a very critical moment during my company's evolution. With almost no warning we had found ourselves stranded without any dev support, even though we had hundreds of users from big brands every day logging into our application and relying on things to keep working. We couldn't afford to have system failures, and I was amazed at—and will be forever grateful for—the way the Buink team stepped in and calmly assumed control of the craft. We and our clients were safe in their expert hands from that moment forward. I whole-heartedly recommend the quality of their work and the dedicated and ethical leadership they continually provide.read more

I could not recommend Buink Web Development more highly. Ben and his team have recently developed a budgeting app for me (both web and IOS). I have had the opportunity of working with them for over a year and I am extremely happy with the results. I would say that the biggest plus for me is that I trust Ben completely. From the very first, Ben has helped me make decisions that were in the best interest of my company. I have never felt like he is taking advantage of me. Ben does his best to keep the whole process very open and upfront. I have really appreciated that.I tell people all the time that I love my developers. And I do. I'm very happy that I chose to use Buink to develop my apps. It was the best business decision I could have made.If you are looking for someone to develop a website or app, I strongly suggest choosing Buink Web Development. They are fantastic!Marilyn Ference, President, Defend Your Money, LLCread more
