Client Testimonials

Robin Myers Imaging dots logo From our days working together at Versatec, I knew Carol to be a thorough, detail-oriented software engineer. Thus I didn't hesitate to choose her as my web developer to help me create an online store for my products. I was not disappointed: she carefully researched the options available within Miva Merchant within the online store offered by my web hosting service and at my merchant bank, to create a clean looking store that allows my customers to order my products any time of day or night.

She took the time to understand my existing website design and offered several looks that would work with Miva Merchant. She worked with my bank to help me choose the best payment gateway. She also tracked down a problem with the shipping methods that various support personnel didn't know the answer to.

The online store has increased sales, saved my customers time, saved us time in processing orders and I would not hesitate to recommend Carol to anyone who needs an online store or has other website needs.

Monitrix Inc. Logo We needed to find a careful, thorough, detail-oriented, privacy conscious and independent new developer to fix several problems with and add functionality to our online questionnaire for a clinical trial already in progress. Carol satisfied our requirements and helped us a great deal. We would be happy to work with her again.

She took the time to understand the PHP code for our questionnaire, although it lacked documentation, and was able to understand our bug list and make the changes we needed. Because of her changes we are confident that we are getting more accurate and complete patient data so important to our clinical trial.

We had a couple of emergencies having to do with the questionnaire calendar and found Carol to be extremely responsive in investigating and fixing these problems to keep the questionnaire up and running.

Mannikkins Contemporary Casuals I already had a great website to show off my line of contemporary women's apparel, but I needed to update it with photos of my new product line.

Carol seemed to easily understand my diagrams of photo locations and captions and quickly updated my website with the new photos I gave her. The website had a couple of new pages when she was finished, since I'd increased the number of products, but her changes fit right in with the existing design of my website.

I'd recommend Carol to anyone who needs web design work done, as a competent, careful, and responsive web developer.

PhotoGetaway I wanted to create my own photography-based business where photographers could post their own photos for sale, and sell merchandise. This endeavor required me to partner with a dynamic web developer who would understand both the technical and business side of things. After going over the site requirements with several other web developers, I chose Carol Mattsson.

She not only quoted a reasonable price, but she was also willing to allow me to be more involved in the website creation. Carol’s flexibility and the willingness to listen to new ideas was key in my decision to select her to help with the launch of the website.

With a strong technical background, she has shown competency in many areas such as:

  • Researching, and delivering quality 3rd party packages. This resulted in saving me money and development time.
  • Responsiveness in customizing/implementing changes to the website according to my business requirements.
  • Helping to define a strategic development design plan that would allow room for growth of the business.
  • As an additional bonus, as a digital photography enthusiast herself, Carol really understands our customers.

As of this writing, PhotoGetaway still has a ways to go, especially in being able to handle a large volume of orders. I look forward to continuing to work with Carol, and gladly recommend her to anyone who needs quality, customized website development.

Pacific Atlantic Electronics Carol Mattsson accurately converted my company catalog to a web site. She is a quick study and grasped the essence of our requirement in the very first meeting. As with most projects changes were pressed upon her, but Carol came through in each instance, graciously and in timely fashion. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Most frequent feedback from our customers: Ease of product search and clarity of item description, all due to Carol's effort. Best of all we have increased sales without increasing telephone enquiries and clarifications.

I would highly recommend Carol Mattsson to any company seeking expert web services.

Communication Academy Communication Academy offers classes to students to enhance their communication skills. These are brand new services that did not exist before. Parents and students require extensive information for evaluation and decision-making.

After discussing with several web developers, we felt Mattsson Web Solutions offered the best-packaged solution. Mattsson Web Solutions sat down with us and designed the desired website patiently. Then Mattsson Web Solutions worked quickly to setup our website and cut over within two days! They did all the work and we just had to review it. We were very pleased with the speed and quality of their work.

Much benefit was realized since the cut over. We saved much time from phone calls and only needed to refer customers to our website. The website was clean and easy to navigate so our customers can find the information quickly and effectively. The website generated many new customers us without much marketing effort. I would recommend Mattsson Web Solutions to any small businesses who are looking for complete web service.

SJSU Sharsmith Herbarium The Sharsmith Herbarium at San Jose State had a very nice online plant database search, but its limited design made it slower than necessary to search through the collection.

I needed a web developer who knew Perl programming and California native plants, and found this person in Carol Mattsson. She took my general design requirements, proposed a detailed specification which we agreed to, and made the changes to a copy of the website so we could both make sure it worked well before taking it live.

I found Carol to be flexible, conscientious, and persistent (since she had to work with an unresponsive 3rd party to get the new changes posted to the website). I'd recommend her to anyone who needs a professional web developer.
