We’re afraid that we don’t provide client references because we are asked for them 10-15 times a week and our long-term clients have only so much time to devote to this, but you can read Sofeast testimonials from some of them here.
To build trust with new clients, we have no minimum order quantity, and the first service at around 100 to 300 USD is pretty much always an option.
What our clients are saying
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.
Our COO & partner, Fabien Gaussorgues, maintains an account on Upwork, where some clients have left very positive feedback, too.
