These companies have hired us to build—with or for them—the customer-facing software that propels their businesses.
If your customer-facing application was built in ASP.NET, it’s likely time for an upgrade.
Here’s why you might be hesitant to pull the trigger.
- You need modern technology for a better customer experience, but there are so many options, they’re all inherently risky, and you don’t even know where to start.
- You don’t have the time, money, or risk tolerance to completely overhaul your mission-critical systems.
- You don’t know which technology you should switch to, or which ones will even work with ASP.NET.
- You have a development team already, but they only work in ASP.NET, and you don’t want to invest in hiring more full-time developers right now.
- You can’t afford to keep your best and brightest developers tied up for months working on this project.
- You would hire an agency, but you’re worried about the security of your data and business logic.
Our custom .NET software development team works with what you already have—no matter where you are in the process—to help you modernize your legacy .NET application so you don’t lose years of investments.
We’ll serve as your fully embedded team to either refurbish your outdated .NET application or build you a new one OR we’ll come alongside your existing team to accelerate the process.
And we can do all of this without even accessing your backend systems. So your data and business logic stay with you and stay secure.
“For me, initially, it was a build or buy sort of decision like, should I hire someone internally to do this and have them build it? Or should I buy an engagement and get a whole team? In that first meeting, seeing all of the different roles that were part of the team at Praxent, I knew there was no way that I could hire one person and in nine months have a completed project. There’s no way.”

Don’t rebuild your outdated application, modernize it. And be ready for .NET 5.
In case you hadn’t heard, Microsoft will not be updating .NET Framework 4.8 or .NET Core 3.1 and instead is working toward a unified code base, called .NET 5. Scheduled for release in November 2020, .NET 5 marks Microsoft’s transition from the aging, proprietary, Windows-only .NET Framework to a more modern, open source, cross-platform .NET. This is good news.
It means going forward there will be just one .NET, and you’ll be able to use it to target Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, tvOS, watchOS, WebAssembly, and more.
And it means the time to upgrade your infrastructure is now, but hey, there’s no need to rebuild. In fact, completely overhauling your mission-critical systems is not only risky, it’s unnecessary and more costly.
Why build in .NET?
And why choose Praxent?
There are many reasons you should build your mission-critical enterprise application in Microsoft’s .NET application development framework—arguably one of the most popular programming languages in the world. And there are many reasons we’re custom built to help you do it. Here are four.
Tested and trusted
.NET Core has a proven history of balancing innovation and reliability across industries and around the world. It’s been the trusted framework for cross-platform applications and continues to evolve into new technologies over time.
We work with .NET Core to build the architecture that best suits your needs, whether those needs are for a highly scalable WebService or independently scalable Microservices. Using frameworks such as WebAPI, industry standards for REST/RESTful APIs, and powerful command-line applications, our .NET Core development specialists have worked with complex business and database layer services and can be trusted to unwrap complexities.
Angular is a frontend app development framework that was created by Google. It’s full featured for when you want everything “pre-loaded” and is time tested as the first major Single Page Application to be adopted by the dev community.
.NET’s effortless scalability is enabled by a vast and robust class library that speeds development by providing proven, ready-to-use capabilities for data access, networking, encryption, workflow, and more.
We leverage containerized application services like Docker to help get your project to the finish line sooner and eliminate the need to reinvent the wheel each time you build. On top of that, .NET development allows seamless service integration with frontend technologies that we also specialize in, such as Angular and React, which streamlines your technology stack, which can save you money.
.NET Core enables secure, cross-platform managed code interoperability without the fuss. It is built from the ground up, with dependency injection (DI) – included as a first-class citizen (a technique which helps you keep track of which features depend on what code. Having DI as a forethought in the .NET framework helps prepare developers to think about future integration, maintainability, and testability.
Forethought is in Praxent’s DNA too—you’ll know your app is being built by a team and with technology that always considers tomorrow. We’re also totally flexible around your internal team’s capabilities and requirements when it comes to the build itself as well as ongoing scalability and maintenance support.
Built for change
Just as legacy technology can be phased in and out, so can your legacy system. With Microsoft phasing out legacy .NET for .NET 5, you need to prepare for the future without throwing away years of investments.
Rather than attempting the risky monolithic approach of rebuilding an application from scratch, we take a systematic approach to break down your application into components that can be transitioned over time. This means you see immediate results instead of waiting for years for upgrades to be released into the wild, giving your return on investment a quicker turnaround.
We’ve been doing this awhile.

Whatever you need, we’ll build it with and for you.
You don’t have to be an expert in frontend application development, but you don’t have to completely hand over the reins to us either.
Wherever you are in the process of updating or building your application, we’ll provide just the help you’re looking for. Here’s how it works in most engagements:
1. Start small
There’s no need to rewrite your entire application—we’ll do it incrementally. Small projects = quick wins.
2. Build together
We build your frontend, and we build a middleware backend, which never touches your business logic or data. You build RESTful API endpoints with our help.
3. Own the outcome
Working alongside your team, we deliver your application in 3-4 months instead of 9-12, and you’ll start seeing results from your dramatically improved digital customer experience from day one.
You are the expert on your operation. Let us turn your expertise into growth.
“I was so impressed with their knowledge. I also think it helps that they had had some experience working with other MPL carriers, so they were familiar with our industry terminology. They knew what we were trying to accomplish, which made it so much easier for me because it’s a daunting process to put all of this together.”
