We’re afraid that we don’t provide references from our long-term clients by email because we are asked for them 10-15 times a week which would inconvenience them and we also do not disclose their names, but you can read a selection of Sofeast testimonials from some of them here.
Since our goal is to build trust with new clients, we have no minimum order quantity, and your first service at around 100 to 300 USD is pretty much always an option.
That being said, a number of clients have kindly allowed us to identify them and share testimonials for you to check on this page:
What our clients are saying
Our team has worked with the Sofeast team in various capacities: manufacturing, QC, warehousing, logistics and project management. They have exceeded our expectations in every way.
Their can-do attitude collates from management to every team member, it is easy to work with Sofeast – they feel like an extension of our team.
Believe the reviews here. I originally tried going direct with a factory in China. Things were constantly delayed, wrong and unresponsive from the factory. I contacted Sofeast a few days before I left for a factory visit because there continued to be more problems and I wanted someone on my side. That was 18 months ago and Sofeast has done so much more than just be with me to translate on that factory visit. From product sourcing to quality control to logistics to engineering and light manufacturing. I can now spend time on sales and marketing and know that my “operations” team has everything handled completely.
Sofeast always tries to find a win-win solution and make things very easy for us. This gives me time to focus on other domains such as customer service, sales, marketing, and website content.
We have used Sofeast’s services in different parts of China, and they maintained the same level of service. Booking a factory audit is simple and we receive their findings very quickly. We feel much safer with their team on our side.
He’s no-nonsense and will be your strongest asset. He makes clients feel empowered and thoroughly serviced. Once you tell Fabien your story, it becomes his story too. You immediately get yourself a partner in crime who assists and thinks in parallel. I don’t think he has ever forgotten anything, and we have loved working with him and are sure you will too.
After disappointing experiences with a number of different sourcing agencies, we’ve been working happily with Sofeast for a year and a half and appreciate their responsiveness, expertise, and database of pre-qualified suppliers for common needs.
We have been working with Sofeast for 4 years, and so far we are very happy about their level of service and their commitment to adapt to our needs. Their processes are simple and user-friendly, and their reports are easy to understand.
Evelyn has been wonderful to deal with and, as this was my first experience using a buying agent, I found the process very interesting. I’ll certainly be back for more help in future when I get into tricky situations.
Sofeast delivers high-level sourcing services, based on precise analysis and documentation, with a constant care to ensure correct fit to the end customer’s needs by taking a proactive approach. With committed staff and a strong project management process, they ensure the target will be hit on time.
We had a large manufacturing issue that required us to recall our products and get them reworked. This issue cost us a lot of money. We wanted damages and payment from the factory, so we hired Sofeast to help us negotiate. Liz from Sofeast was perfect for the job – she has a unique understanding of Chinese factories and Western clients. This allows her to bridge the cultural communication gap and solve problems like no one we’ve ever seen. In the end, Liz was absolutely fantastic and we got exactly what we wanted out of the negotiation. We are now on even better working terms with the factory than before, all thanks to Liz’s work!
I warmly recommend Sofeast to any company buying in China. I can testify about their attention to detail and their personalized follow-up of clients. Their reporting is very precise, and it allows us to understand easily what happened in production.
Sofeast has been working hard to help us develop and manufacture our new earbuds with a mix of expert quality assurance, product engineering, and supply chain management solutions. They also provide us with comprehensive packing, warehousing, and fulfillment solutions.
Our COO & partner, Fabien Gaussorgues, maintains an account on Upwork where some clients have left very positive feedback, too.
