My name is Jessie Button. I am the founder of TeachAroundTheWorld.net. I hired Kosala at the Sanmark about 8 months ago to create my website for me. I’ve really enjoyed what he’s done. And I really enjoyed working with him. He’s very punctual, and he has very good communications skills. He’s rapid at getting any changes done that I ask him to do. And all in all, I can say that if you choose to work with Kosala at the Sanmark, you won’t regret it.
Teach Around The World.
Hello, my name is Nyoli. I am the owner of Truly Tea in Byron Bay, Australia. I’ve been working with Kosala and Sanmark for many years now. Kosala has designed our logo, he has designed our website. Whenever I need anything done with the website whatsoever, uploading images, content, anything like that, I just have to send Kosala a quick email, either himself or his very efficient staff jump right on to it. I don’t have any issues. He’s very open and honest. In fact I’ve actually been to Sri Lanka, and I’ve met Kosala and his beautiful family. And I am most grateful for that. And I would recommend Sanmark to anyone. And don’t be afraid to contact me anytime. Thank you!
I am very happy that I decided to use Sanmark for our web development. They produced excellent standard of work within the agreed time scale. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them.

I can thoroughly recommend Sanmark.

We are so happy that we decided to use Sanmark to design our website. With words we can’t express our appreciation for all the help and advice the sanmark team has given us. Kosala and Ranga were always there to listen to our never ending requests and have worked extremely hard to get everything done according to our wishes. The best thing was that they understood why we wanted things done in our specific way. The sanmark team did their best and has now made us a very satisfied customer. We are very grateful for all the hard work and time everyone has put into our website. The entire team has been absolutely awesome. Thilina created a sophisticated logo that receives a lot of appreciation. Our special thanks to him. We hope that Galletown.lk and Sanmark will be working as a team for many years to come. Thank you so much.
