Reviews

Excellent Customer Support

Looked for several days for a plugin to show our staff and be able to search for a staff member by name to get their phone number. This plugin solved that issue for us and also allowed us to add pictures of staff members.

We needed a field changed on the plugin and they quickly developed a addition with their next update. Highly Recommend this plugin A++++

Easy to use and effective

A very well designed plugin with good documentation and excellent technical support. Highly recommended for those looking to quickly build and maintain an employee directory.
