Solve the right problem
Does your technology need some attention or some serious updating? Ruby on Rails has come a long way since it was first created in 2003, during the development of Basecamp. While Rails is arguably past its point of peak popularity, it still has a lot to offer and there are ways to capitalize on its capabilities. We are a Ruby on Rails application development company that specializes in rescuing drowning projects, and our experience has shown us it’s likely your problem isn’t the technology, but finding the right partner. If you’re sick of developers burning out and getting nowhere with mission critical Ruby on Rails development tasks, our firm can help. Our solution architects know the key to success is to identify small problems and make incremental changes at a steady pace. What’s your biggest struggle?
Complicated Business Logic
Is the business logic getting too complicated for your developers to manage? Are your Rails data models complex, and causing issues during testing and development, or even creating user-facing performance issues?
Recurring Bugs or Defects
Do you struggle with recurring bugs in your code? Is your application full of defects, which seem to grow faster than you can address them? Do you spend too much time (and money) writing tests and fighting fires as you identify new issues?
Are you worried about the performance of your web app? Do you have issues with memory leaks or slow speeds due to an outdated code base? Is there a problem when there are too many queries and concurrent requests on the frontend?
Is your code base outdated? Did you choose Ruby on Rails development services when they were hugely popular, but feel it’s no longer the most appropriate solution given how much things have changed?

Choose the right partner
When it comes to evaluating Ruby on Rails development services, know that it’s possible to avoid a costly rewrite with a little discipline and some technical TLC. Ruby on Rails is a great choice for web applications of all sizes, and one of its main benefits is that it’s easy to read and understand by developers of varying skill levels. Ruby on Rails’ model-view-controller architecture keeps it clean and isolates business logic, meaning it’s still a good choice for today’s advanced FinTech applications. Rails enforces well established patterns and guidelines within your codebase so any developer can quickly become familiar with code they haven’t seen before. This means projects can be developed more quickly and at a lower budget than with some other languages. Because the Ruby on Rails development community values productivity and simplicity, there are ample tools to enable the right team to clean up and restore old Ruby code to its former glory -- all while adding new, innovative features.
Achieve Peak Performance
If you're worried about too much traffic or too many queries impacting performance, investing in a little additional development optimization on your firm’s Ruby on Rails application can help. A good caching layer using redis can spare your database server from a barrage of queries, while Nginx and Unicorn manage concurrent user requests on the front-end and drastically improve performance. We also recognize that while Ruby on Rails offers flexibility and ease of use, it can sometimes come at the expense of memory leaks and poor performance. By leveraging the power of the JVM using jRuby, it’s possible to identify and fix performance problem areas in your existing codebase. Our developers are adept in the ins-and-outs, and will ensure your application performs at its peak.
Make Incremental Changes Quickly
While tackling Ruby on Rails updates or even full on platform switches, we know the key to success comes in identifying small problems and making incremental changes at a steady pace. A major benefit of the ROR framework is that it enables applications to be built and deployed quickly and easily, and edits or changes can be made without breaking anything important. It’s a pragmatic code base, which means your business can get your updated product to market quickly and continue to improve or add features over time.
Keep Your Code Clean (and Simple)
Rails enforces well-established patterns and guidelines within your codebase so that developers can more quickly become familiar with code they haven’t seen before. The Ruby on Rails development community is open-source and values productivity, simplicity, and testing, meaning it’s easier and more feasible to maintain clean code and low investments over time. However, if Ruby on Rails is a legacy software development technology at your company, you’re likely looking at quite a bit of technical debt. A clean-up or a new approach from an experienced partner like Praxent means it’s possible to return to a simple, manageable code base going forward.
Use Data-Driven Design Principles
If the business logic associated with your existing Ruby on Rails application has become overly complex or outdated, we can help. Data-driven design principles can take some of that complexity out of the Rails data models and into distinct layers that are composable, flexible, and independently testable. We have years of Ruby on Rails consulting experience and know what works and what doesn’t, ensuring your app - no matter how complicated or what’s going on behind the scenes - will run smoothly for both internal stakeholders and end users.

The level of sheer intellect shown in their way of thinking about problems added tremendous value and saved us time. Praxent thought through all issues ahead of time before letting us run into them.

Praxent trained us well and gave us all of the skills we need to be successful. The internal UX team is now skilled enough to improve CX on their own. Since working with Praxent, mores users can access the self-service, and call rates have decreased, signifying an improved UX. Praxent’s team was friendly and easy to work with. They’re highly recommended.
The body of work they produced under our circumstances was no joke; they did a fantastic job. Although we had so many stakeholders with varying cultures and priorities, Praxent’s team was helpful in mediating between our partners.
Praxent gives us weekly updates, so we always know where we are. They’ve always hit their dates and goals. I couldn’t have asked for better communication, and the project is exactly what we were expecting it to be. They’ve blown us away with the design, and truly listened to what we and our customers said. It’s a great product that they’re rolling out. It’s going to be a huge game-changer for our company.
