    I would not recommend this company, or dealing with Fredo, to any Company or individual. We had nothing but problems since the first meeting. We met with Fredo. He didnt want to use any of the ideas we had and pushed to use his own ideas. Even when he was shown why his ideas were to old school and out of date. We wanted a solution that used dropbox and a web calendar. But he said he could compete with dropbox using his own webserver. As soon as he found out who the boss was , and that he was the one paying the bill, he stopped talking to the tech that was in charge of the Solution and only talked to the Boss. The boss knew what he wanted but was not tech savvy in the slightest. The boss would keep referring back to the tech leading the project and Fredo kept ignoring the tech or dismissing his ideas outright. We had slow internet where we were in town and there is no other ISP that offers service, so we brought this up in conversation and he kept insisting he could optimize our internet so it would go faster. Which is impossible when it comes to uploading and downloading files when the bottleneck is the ISP's and hardware limitation. Even when he was doing a demonstration part of the way through the project, the internet was extremely slow and his optimizations didnt change a thing. Uploading took 30 minutes for a 15mb PDF file using his optimizations.. While using dropbox to upload would only take a minute or 2 using our regular system. ONE thing that should be noted above all others, Fredo's company had our information on a HACKED SERVER.. We logged in to his trial server at "synergeelabs.com" part of the way through the project and the main page came up with an "Hacked by AnoaGhost". Upon further investigation, if you look on the "WayBack Machine" you will see that the server he was using has been hacked since June of 2016. That means he's been using a hacked server for 6 months prior to his posting our information onto it. This is the archived snapshot of that server from June of 2016.. https://web.archive.org/web/20160616212736/http://synergeelabs.com/ What company wants to be hacked not even a month into a contract ? In the end we had to let Fredo and his team go. They were too hard to work with, there skills needed to be updated, and he had little to no security on his servers. We updated all our of security and changed a lot for fear of our information getting stolen or sold. I would honestly suggest that Fredo learn to not try and split the companies team up and make them go against each other . That is a bad strategy to go into a business contract with.. especially when members of the team are also web designers themselves.

      My business was struggling as we didn't have an online presence. We consulted with the folks at advertise STL, they build a very professional website and soocial media sites. Now we're getting business from every where. Thanks a lot!
