Kindred Bravely

The Vaan Group's Shopify dev. team is the best I've ever worked with! Having worked with half a dozen developers I've never seen a team pull off development projects like they can. They think out the solution and the code is clean. They can pretty much pull of anything you can dream up and suggest improvements.

Coop Home Goods

To sum it up, these guys deliver. They are professional, on time, consistent, have your best interest in mind, and at the same time willing to give and compromise to build something that you have in mind.

They have the ability to create some very visually elaborate content and under stand ux ui. they just get it.

Connor Robbie and Xavier were really great to work with.

We had a tight deadline and they worked with us to make sure our site went live by then. I probably drove them crazy, but they hustled and got it done. Don't think most agencies could have pulled it off.

To Sum It Up, they get it. I wholeheartedly recommend them.


I'll start with the main takeaway, which is I highly recommend The Vaan Group.

The longer story is that honestly my experience wasn't seamless...mainly because they were quite responsive and worked quickly...and I was a bit of a bottle neck. I made frequent changes and was slow with approvals.

But they worked with me every step. No nickel and diming on a every change. No constant pushbacks. Just lots of strategic thinking and lots of working with us to determine the right path.

So in the end- I don't see how it could have gone better in terms of who I worked with. The work was done well (meaning they're technically competent). They had my business needs in mind and worked with me through what I needed and when. And ultimately they were easy to talk to and accessible. That's the honest deal.

FLI Charge

It was a pleasure to work with Xavier and the rest of the team at The Vaan Group. Immediately following our first meeting, they sent us a full fledged mockup exemplifying their unique creativity and deep understanding of our technology and brand. They are innovative, creative thinking and extremely talented at animation. The team is willing to work within a budget and is fully transparent and upfront about costs and timeline. We look forward to our continued relationship with TVG and recommend that any company meet with them before going with another Shopify expert.

Goat Tape

Working with The Vaan Group has been an incredible experience. They took our old, hard to use website and turned it into a clean and easy to navigate website. Sales have skyrocketed since hiring TVG. By making our website so easy to navigate, it has not only helped drive sales but has decreased the amount of time we have to walk customers through the checkout process.

Our company, Goat Tape, manufactures and prints custom athletic tape. Our biggest challenge was explaining what our company offers and then the physical process of interacting with our customers to receive their files, create proofs, and accept payment. Our original process was slow and very hard for both our company and our customers. The Vaan Group recognized this issue and helped figure out a brilliant solution. They created an easy to use "Custom Orders" page on our website, created a clean pricing chart and then a very easy to use three step ordering process. Users can now upload their logo right to our website, fill in their desired color and style options, and their shipping information. It has saved Goat Tape tons of time and money.

We highly recommend working with The Vaan Group.
