The documentation is very clear and makes the installation process very easy.
Had some trouble to get the Virtuemart plugin to work but the support was really great. Fast reply to my support ticket, and the developer helped me out just fine.
For example, we asked for a captcha and we got Re-captcha over the weekend. We asked for the user name to display after logging in and we got it within a day. Updated versions go up on their server all the time.
The software is extremely easy to install and use. There is an excellent guide with pictures and it took us only a few minutes to set our complex membership scheme and access control up. It works nicely with other Joomla extensions and we have not had a single problem that did not get addresses right away.
Well worth the money for these guys. They are on top of their software and really take care of their customers.
I personally struggled with controlling individual categories for submission, in the mosets tree and Helix and the Guys at OSE, provided me with support above and beyond expectation.
Great Product, Great Guys joomla, Great Company, I hope they do well and make more awesome Add-ons.
I am a very happy customer! :-D
In a world filled with daily examples of indifference and mediocrity; Helix is a beacon of hope.
It was through the reviews that I chose to purchase OSE Membership control. Therefore, I feel it's my obligation to report back that everything that has been shared about their support and service is truly accurate.
I have been using the JED for over 2 years now and I'm saying that I'm most impressed with this component. I'm not a regular guy just stumbling around the JED either, I build websites for a living and as well I teach others how to build websites using Joomla.
Look, bottom line is if you are looking for a powerful membership component, forget the other 11 or so that you see in the JED, i have tried half of them with little pleasure, do yourself a favor and if you are really serious about the business idea you plan to use a membership component with, then you will get this component.
My name is David Shields and i'm a happy customer!
This is going to be my third recommendation on Joomla simply because I think Helix , his staff, products and service deserve it.
The products are innovative, well constructed and just do what they are designed to do.
As much as I like his products, what really blew me away was his customer and support service. It is simple the best I have encountered in the Joomla, IT or ICT industry.
I recommend Helix and his products to anyone looking for great joomla solutions for there specific needs.
2 hours later my problems were resolved, thanks to Helix and crew. On. A. Sunday.
Great product, great support!
Queries are handled quickly and cheerfully and I am absolutely delighted that I chose to buy Membership Control from them. Apart from the obvious benefit of having a plug-in that does what it says on the box, I have the added benefit of knowing that, should I need their help, they will be there to guide and support me.
A first-class product with a first-class service.
Well done, guys!
I previously used AEC which too is a great extension, but can be quite complicated in its configuration. So after trying AEC which was free, I was a little dubious paying for a subscription extension. I must say reading the reviews was inspiring so I thought I would give it a go.
Initially I had teething problems as the component was disagreeing with my SEF. Helix told me this, so I made some alterations. I had one last problem and could not find the fault.
Not a problem for Helix. He simply went to my site backend and sorted the problem.
Now all is perfect. So many options of control its unreal. At last I really FEEL I am in control of my site.
As others have said before, this guy deserves all his success as his support and speed is awesome.
I wouldnt hesitate to purchase from him again.
If only ALL extensions and support were like this.
I think that this component is really great, but the best for me is the quality of the OSE support.
I bought OSE Membership Control and the phpbb addon to do a Fan Club website with annual subscription.
Everything is working fine, the bridge between joomla and OSE is totally transparent. Very good work.
But the best for me is the support they give to me : I'm not experienced and sometimes I don't really understand what I'm doing. I ask for help to the OSE support and they really take care about a newbie like me. Now they solve my problems and everything is working fine.
If sometimes you don't know why you have payed a software, with OSE you will know.
Sorry for my Swiss french English, and long life to Joomla.
In this case, I think the extension (Membership Control by OSE) is excellent and well worth paying for. The extension itself does exactly what it says, which is great. However, what I believe separates it from other extensions is the support received. I needed some customisation of the extension and Helix did a fantastic job in turning it around very quickly. Having been let down by some developers in the past, this experience was a refreshing change.
Overall, I would say the extension + support is nothing short of outstanding so thank you!
Installation wasn’t straightforward but only because I had a problem due to the size of my database (my site has been running for about five years). However, I contacted their support and they rewrote the component and even installed it for me within three days. Never before in all the years I’ve been developing and building websites have I known service like this. If the world is in any way just, people like this will be rewarded with success.
I won a lot of time!
Membership Control is a component that integrates well with Virtuemart and Joomla.
No duplication of info for managing subscriptions (addresses, payment, download ...) all these functions are performed by Virtuemart. Only subscription information are managed by Membership Control (Restriction on content "sections, categories, items, on modules, on menus for each membership based on membership.
No Ioncube. Membership Control works with Virtuemart 1.13 and Joomla 1.5 on my site shared 16MB ... It's great!
I am pleased to have purchased Membership and Quality Control services Helix.
Helix, it is the developer of Network Excellence, together with his team they did the excellent product as well as providing magic support with taking care of what customer really needs.
Keep it up - Great Job!
