5/5 CLIENT REVIEW
Praxent built a modular web application that features a UX optimized interface and financial analysis functionalities.
With innovative features and a durable infrastructure, it’s not surprising that users are switching over to the online tool. Praxent’s amazing team was the project’s greatest asset. Although their time management skills are questionable, the outstanding quality of their work is indisputable.

Opportunity / Challenge
What challenge were you trying to address with Praxent?
We wanted to build an online replica of our fiscal reporting spreadsheet.
What was the scope of their involvement?
Praxent used our existing Excel spreadsheets as a model to develop a web app with a UX optimized design and customizable admin features. Their team worked on everything from wireframing to front- and backend development.
What is the team composition?
We communicated with their founder during the bidding process, but one of their project managers assumed the liaison role during the development stages.
How did you come to work with Praxent?
They were one of the four local web developers that we reached out to. Their willingness to learn about our business greatly influenced our hiring decision.
What is the status of this engagement?
The project commenced in the fall of 2013 and concluded in May 2016.
Results & Feedback
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Before we built the website, 30 of our clients were using the desktop tool to generate their financial reports. Now, more than 50 clients have upgraded to the online version. We’ve added a lot of new features to the platform, but its well-designed backend is still operating flawlessly.
How did Praxent perform from a project management standpoint?
Although they worked at a slow pace, their management skills were satisfactory. They were excellent at keeping us informed during the biweekly meetings.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Praxent’s fantastic team made the daunting project a pleasurable experience. They made it clear that our needs were their top priority.
Are there any areas they could improve?
The Pivotal Tracker software that they used to manage the project was too unreliable to keep track of their process. They should consider adopting new software that provides accurate status updates.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Clearly defined business goals are the key to success when working with Praxent.
