  • Aniket is awesome. I have been in the tech space for 30 yrs but have not had to actually do development work for the last 20yrs. My current project has made it necessary (Happily) for me to start developing again and I was very pleased to see how far the open source community has come because it is the future of tech. One particular standout is Techjoomla in that they have some very creative,innovative and useful extensions that are speeding up my development time and lowering my cost. Invitex is one of those extensions that meets its description and is very valuable in commercial applications. Pros Easy to install and integrates with Joomla seamlessly Easy to configure by following the instruction Detailed documentation that is easy to follow Cons Extension needs to be updated more frequently. This is not ALL Techjoomla's fault because Social Media system changes happen often Documentation needs to be updated more frequently also Support Besides their useful extensions their support team was OUTSTANDING and in particular I have to shine the light on ANIKET who supported me on Invitex, Social Ads and acted as an intermediary with the Broadcast support person who was also good and responsive. As a veteran of tech, I know that everything doesn't always work perfectly so the key is support not only for your project but more importantly it is the key to the growth and success of opensource. Techjoomla and ANIKET are excellent examples of the future of opensource and I will buy more extensions from them in the future and highly recommend Invitex.
