The Silicon Review
Tim Hamilton started Praxent in 2000, with a bootleg copy of Photoshop, a website, and a commitment to helping local businesses win at digital innovation. He taught himself Cold Fusion, SQL, and Windows Server 2000; built websites from scratch; and made $1,100 his first year (the first company purchase being a license for Photoshop!). But the company has grown remarkably since then.
Over the past 20 years, Praxent has successfully delivered over 300 software transformations and helped hundreds of businesses provide a more modern, intuitive digital experience to their customers. The company’s name “Praxent” comes from combining the words “praxis” and “agent”—praxis meaning the process of realizing a skill and agent meaning having the power to act on another’s behalf.
Many companies have built software applications that no longer meet customer expectations. Praxent help companies modernize those applications so they can remain relevant against born-digital competitors.
However, when it comes to modernization, most people think they need to rebuild their entire system. More often than not, a user interface refresh and some technology upgrades can make the existing software unrecognizable. Better yet, nothing is wasted. This evolutionary approach makes it possible to modernize one module or feature at a time, accelerating your ROI while simultaneously reducing your risk. No waste, check. Accelerated ROI, check. Reduced risk, check. That’s what Praxent delivers.
At Praxent, the team of IT legacy modernization consultants works seamlessly with the delivery leads, strategists, and designers to empower businesses. Praxent’s culture is characterized by creativity and commitment to service.
