What do users want?
Let's find out.
Will the software you want to build succeed? Not if people don’t want to use it. Partner with Praxent to prioritize your most important people — your users. We perform user experience design research to question your company’s assumptions and to validate ideas so you make the right move, every time.

Make users your priority
Just 16.2% of software projects come in on time and on budget. Many projects fail because they do not incorporate the user experience design research needed to inform successful product development. Prioritizing users makes dollars and cents.
End the endless debate
To innovate your service-based business, it’s critical to bring all your stakeholders to the table. But you can’t pursue digital innovation if you never get past the debates that hold you back. Well-designed user research can help you align your teams, generate momentum, and provide the evidence you need to turn ideas into realities.
Check for viability
Avoid scrapped features, scope creep, and failure to get a return on investment by investigating what users really want before you build. User research reduces risk for your company by providing game-changing insights — on user challenges, expectations, and moments of delight — so you’ll build a viable product they’ll love.
Make sure it's usable
Did you know that 80% of usability issues can be resolved up-front through user research? Even if your software idea is out of this world, it can’t succeed if basic usability is compromised. Find out how your users think about the jobs they need to do, the frustrations they have, and the progress they need to make.
Find your advantage
Innovation is a big investment. You can’t afford to guess whether your most important people — your customers, your partners, your sales team — will benefit from the software you build. User research delivers the hard data and actionable insights into user motivations, thoughts, and behaviors that let you build to win.
User expectations are changing as fast as technology is evolving. Research is a critical tool for keeping up with your most important people — your users. Investing in user experience design research can help your business:
Attract and win new customers
Better serve existing customers
Boost revenue and/or increase profits
Understand your users.
At Praxent, prioritizing users is our passion. We’re a data-driven, human-centered software development agency with the user research expertise you need to find your competitive advantage.
Do just-right research
Decision-makers at many firms assume user research will take too long and cost too much. That’s why Praxent focuses on just-right research. We’ll help you quickly identify the fastest way to find clear answers — so you can take on-target action.
Behaviors & Usability
You’re ready to improve your user experience — but where should you invest to make the most positive change? Do you know what’s really wrong with your UX?
Praxent user research experts can assess your company’s existing user experiences to identify usability pain points. And when users can’t articulate what’s wrong, analytics will tell the tale. We’ll analyze user behaviors to reveal real opportunities for your business.
Attitudes & Context
When you’re bent on digital innovation, you’ve got ideas current users can’t even imagine. How can you tell if they will like — or even understand — the new way?
Surveys, focus groups, and contextual inquiries can reveal key attitudes that guide successful product development. User research lets you determine who will want to use your product, why, how, and in what context well before building.
Priorities & Organization
Don’t invest in features your users don’t want. Meanwhile, how will you organize features they do want? The key is to investigate priorities and thought patterns.
Card sorts and task analysis can help you learn what users care about most, the terminology they use to describe their needs, and how they mentally map their tasks. This design research is critical for making any user experience feel effortless.
Validation & Recommendation
How will users react to new user experiences? To innovate with confidence, you’ve got to validate. And when you’re onto something, users will let you know.
With Praxent, you get working prototypes to let users experience innovation first-hand. With rapid prototyping, we find out what users think of each design idea, and refine per real user feedback until it’s just right.
Ready to research?
Creating effortless user experiences can differentiate your service-based business. Better UX design comes from user research, not guesswork. Partnering with Praxent means getting to know your users — and allowing them to point the way.

Digital innovation is more than buying a product — it’s investing in user-centric thinking as a competitive differentiator. We shape our clients’ investments with a rational view of returns, a holistic view of processes, and a deep understanding of what your customers, partners, and teams truly value. Successful engagements include:
We have grown sales by 600% with minimal hiring and the technology Praxent built enabled that. Not only has the technology worked, but working with Praxent has been great too. I consider them to be an extension of my team.
Deliberate, visionary, reliable and process-oriented. Finally. Someone who understands my vision and has a clear plan for realizing it. Highly recommended.
Your insight, acute technical knowledge and calm assurance have provided me and the team immense confidence that we indeed selected the perfect partner for this project.
Years later, the application they built for us is still running with almost zero maintenance. Praxent helped the City of Houston implement additional technologies that would later generate additional cost savings and cost avoidance.
