At Praxent, we know you want to be a well-respected, in-demand digital product leader. In order to do that, you need to innovate and create game-changing, compelling, competitive financial products. The problem is your company lacks the expertise and capacity to tackle this internally. That has left you feeling overwhelmed by complexity and unable to align stakeholders around the need for change.

We believe you deserve to sleep soundly at night, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re doing everything you can to be successful. We understand you only have one chance to get this right, which is why we have assembled a fast-moving team of 70+ fintech product experts, designers and engineers who have delivered over 300 software transformations over the past 20 years.

Here’s how we do it:
  • Assess. We rapidly assess your situation and present a proposal with three investment options plus a quick-start engagement.
  • Prototype. Create and validate a new, innovative product with actual customers. Use the learnings to develop a clear roadmap for success.
  • Build. Rest easy. We’ll support you wherever you need us: product strategy, UX design, feature or integration development, or dedicated onshore or nearshore developers to extend your team.
  • Launch. You’ve delivered like you said you would, now enjoy the fruits. Added bonus: You have a proven technology partner in your back pocket ready for your next challenge.

Praxent Reviews

    Voice of Customer at Signature Homes

    Custom Product Design for Home Building Company
    Project Type: Digital Agencies
    Review Date: 2 April, 2021
    Praxent is developing a program that’s kind of a mix between Amazon and Pinterest. Praxent always hits their dates and goals. They’re fantastic. Kelly and her team are great. I couldn’t have asked for better communication, and the project is exactly what we were expecting it to be. They’ve blown us away with the design, and truly listened to what we and our customers said. It’s a great product that they’re rolling out. It’s going to be a huge game-changer for our company.

    We engaged Praxent to help us create a modern and attractive UI and UX for our employee self-serve client portals. As far as quantitative metrics, we don’t know yet because we haven’t released our new UI/UX. Now, it is legitimately night and day. When the UI/UX is released, it will absolutely be a completely new experience that will be worlds better. Listen to them when they tell you there are potential pitfalls. They have been right every time, and they have been very helpful.

    Software Platform Review & UI/UX Consultation for Bank
    Project Type: User Experience
    Review Date: 2 April, 2021
    We hired Praxent to review our platform and its UI/UX. We wanted to have a third-party opinion that what we’d built was indeed well-architected and scalable, and Praxent provided us with that independent verification. They also had really good UI/UX suggestions and feedback, a lot of which we’ve incorporated into our product’s customer interface. Praxent met the needs of the engagement. They did what they said they were going to do in the agreed-upon timeframe and budget, which was great.

    Website Development & Design for Financial Firm
    Project Type: User Experience
    Review Date: 2 April, 2021
    Praxent delivers development support to our financial firm. They’ve helped re architect our client and public sites with Linux, .NET, and React. Praxent played a large part in facilitating an issue-free site launch, and internal stakeholders largely attribute higher adoption rates to their development work. Responsive, accessible, and client-oriented, the team provided the best resources and solutions to fit the project’s budget and goals.

    Project Type: Software Development
    Review Date: 2 April, 2021
    We engaged Praxent to develop our member and producer portals on our public website. Praxent built the portals for us from scratch. Their team designed the UI/UX and connected the portals to our underwriting software. Praxent worked with our third-party vendors to develop the portals’ additional requirements. Every week, we went through where we were from a budget standpoint. They’re a knowledgeable and strong team that was a pleasure to work with.

    Mobile App Dev for Retirement Fund Firm
    Project Type: Fintech Software Development
    Review Date: 2 April, 2021
    We wanted them to develop an iOS and Android app that built on our current participant web experience, but take it to the next level. They managed our two main priorities: getting to market quickly and improving the features our participants can engage with. I’ve been impressed with how well they can take our ideas and put them into action. They’re creative, they hear our feedback, and they come up with unique ways to present data and create an experience on the platform.
