Praxent Circles

Over the past 17 years, we’ve honed our process to design and develop solutions that surpass our client’s goals. Discover why Praxent sets the new standard in web development.

Not all websites are created equally. Visitors today are sophisticated and expect a seamless and easy-to-use online experience. Settling for a subpar website is simply not an option. Slow load times, poor navigation, and dated UX design can impact your bottom line. Your business depends on providing a differentiated and engaging experience for your visitors.

There are a lot of firms that can build you a website. But there are few who can develop a game changing website or web application that will drive results. At Praxent, we’re a web development company that gets it.

We understand your business needs and goals are constantly evolving. Whether you are a local business or a national brand, our web development services are tailored to meet your requirements and exceed your expectations. We build websites that are fast, secure, easy to maintain, and have rock-solid functionality.

As a web development company, we understand that the technology behind these complicated projects can be overwhelming. Our team of experts coach you through every tough decision in order to ensure the best web development strategy, while delivering the industry’s most innovative solutions.

“Our team loves working with Praxent so much that once we get the product up and launched, the team says ‘What’s next?’ It’s that kind of relationship where you love not only how much you’ve learned, but you love the end product so much that the first thing you want to do is start on another one.”

Web development has changed

In the old days, a simple web page was often a batch of static HTML files. Today users expect more refined and sophisticated online experiences that require much more technical know-how to build.

As expectations have grown, the field has fragmented. To get a site that meets today’s standards, you could seek out a graphic designer, an information architect, a content strategist, a user experience consultant and a systems integration specialist. And, finally, a developer to write the code.

Or you could talk to us.

Evolving with the technology

Like the technology itself, finding a partner or partners to help design and build your custom web app has grown more complicated.

Some shops just focus on look and feel, the website “skin” that users see. Others concentrate only on website development, the “code” side of websites that users don’t see.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But from the start, we fell in love with the web and all of its potential. We’ve worked hard to evolve in parallel with web technology.

Web app development that lays the groundwork for amplified growth

With the sevenfold growth in global Internet access between 2000 and 2015, and projections for 5 billion users by 2020, the possibilities for business growth, new businesses and industry disruption by web apps are virtually unlimited. Furthermore, the influx of available web app development tools make the promise of new web-powered products and innovations more accessible than ever before.

Sites that provide information and enable secure purchases are only meeting the baseline expectations of today’s users. They don’t just want experiences that are secure, reliable and accessible. They seek out sites that are easy to use, intuitive and aesthetically pleasing. We build destinations that succeed by exceeding users’ overall experiences, whether it is shopping for information, or for tangible goods.

Partner with a web application development company that can navigate today’s technological landscape with your business goals in mind.

What you should be asking your web development company

With 17 years of experience building a winning development team, we’ve near perfected the process of finding good developers. Whether you’re looking for an agency to partner with or a solo freelancer, you can use the same process we use to hire employees as a way to vet candidates for your web development team.

Develop a scorecard based on your mission statement and what you’re looking for in a development partner. Include outcomes, competencies, and necessary skills, ranking them from high to low priority.

At Praxent, we value learning over knowing. We’d rather hire someone who is a willing and adept learner, than someone who knows quite a lot but is reluctant to explore and grow.

That being said, you’ll definitely want a team of experts. Regardless of how much they love to learn, you’ll waste your time if they don’t have the skills to accomplish what you’re asking and paying for.

So ask for proof. Look closely at their case studies and portfolio. If you can, test out products they’ve built.

Weigh the pros and cons of their strengths and risks. What do you risk with this partner? What do you stand to gain? Does one outweigh the other?

Are they mentioned on any reputable review sites like Clutch.co? If so, what are people saying? Get in touch with their previous clients. Find out what it was like to work with them and whether or not their clients are happy with the long-term results of their work.

Are they masters of only one or two web development technologies? If so, then be aware that the solutions they propose will be limited to what they can build using a pretty small toolbox.

Now, we’re not advocating for “Jack of all trades, master of none,” but there are teams of developers out there who have genuinely advanced expertise in a huge variety of programs and languages. With a team like that, you’ll know that the solution you’re getting is truly the best one for your needs, not just the only one they know how to build.

Read about our experience with over 50 different web development technologies.

How do they handle your call and your questions? What is their attitude toward you? Are they helpful and solutions-oriented as you discuss your web needs?

The goal here is to weed out the ones that are not a good fit. If they don’t pass this stage, then it will serve you best to keep looking.

Find out what their team culture is like and ask for examples. Ask them what their process is for keeping projects on track and how they’ve seen success with that in the past. How do they work to reduce the risk of failed projects? Do they understand your company’s needs and can they present a plan for aligning with your goals?

If it feels like you’re not on the same page during the interview or their presentation, then you probably wouldn’t be during development, either.

We’ve had companies come to us for help with broken websites that cost them thousands of dollars to build. Like these companies did, it’s easy to fall for the shiny prestige of a fancy design agency. But before you do, make sure they can give you all that beautiful design without sacrificing performance and functionality.

Find out if they develop sustainably, creating layouts and features that you or someone from your marketing can easily edit later without having to read a manual.

And do they have the know-how to set your website up for success in terms of speed, browser compatibility, SEO and search engine visibility?

We can’t stress enough how important it is to work with developers who understand the value of thoroughly laying a solid foundation for your project before they begin developing. The best teams will not only value this, they will encourage you to stand by them as they take care of important details that can save immense amounts of time later on in the project.
