Scalable Web Architecture For Certification Management

Role: VP, Information & Technology at Texas Youth Football Association
It was a challengeable task: To replace a manual process with an application that TYFA could easily access anywhere. Previous attempts to automate the process crashed servers, requiring volunteers to resort to pen and paper methods at the last minute, creating volumes of administrative work that was error-prone, time-consuming and expensive. With the help of Praxent, The Texas Youth Football & Cheer Association with Killeen Olympians application served 18,000 football players, cheerleaders, and coaches in major metropolitan areas and small towns across Texas. Hence we made sure that we are having the right kids, playing in all the right age level that is appropriate, so we don’t risk any injury or harm to other kids and players.

The system was made scalable, capable of registering 3000-4000 students at the same time. Also, it worked anywhere, in a gym or field and efficiently on any computer or mobile device. The user experience they created is easy to use and intuitive, to minimize the time needed for training.

The product they developed was scaled to previous methods, so the volunteers can directly check birth certificates of the children, complete the profiles and print their ID Cards reliably and efficiently. The system also sends guardians a waiver, which they can sign electronically and then the kids can compete safely within their age bracket. The process has been so smooth.

Pros of the application: It saved TYFA thousands of dollars annually by eliminating the need for professional photography with the integration of hardware cameras. Cuts volunteer training to a minimum with a simple, user-friendly interface. Reduces processing time per player by nearly 50%. Enables coaches to access up-to-date roster data and quickly verify player eligibility, replacing a cumbersome paper-based method that was often outdated.

What do you like most about the company?

My experience with them has been astonishing and awesome. With Praxent, it’s all about getting the product the way we wanted it to match our flow, making everything very easy for us. The system has actually freed up a lot of my time to do other things. We’re able to do everything – take pictures, verify data anywhere and on any device. The result of the application we saw was safer and easier to get these athletes on the field

Our journey was from a product company to a software company

Role: Founder and CEO at Photomadic
We are a photo and video marketing company based in Dallas, Texas and came to Praxent with a specific need. A unified software solution for our photographic booth - Photomadic. Before we worked with Praxent we were a product company, so at that time we used to work with other 3rd party software and piece them all together so that it could work for that one solution. While learning about the new needs in the market, we realized that we needed to partner with somebody to create a much more expensive platform so that we could often allow different other solutions outside the booth too. If the internet went out with our old software, it was difficult to handle the situation. Hence this new unified platform not only solved the problem with connectivity and customization but allowed our clients with software solutions that go beyond the booth.

The platform was divided into three components:
Dashboard: Cloud-based experience manager in a gallery can be called as the Dashboard. From the time user interacts with the apps when they receive the photo online; we wanted that to be the white label and user customizable from the central location.
The second component is an application which can on Photobooth’s iPad
The third component is a Daemon application that runs inside the booth itself. This daemon is the brain of the system connecting all the components together and enabling real-time viewing and analytics of all the data collected during the experience.

Being able to streamline all the information into a platform that the agency can access is an extremely valuable service which Praxent provided us. The client can see the photo uploaded, see them engaged, etc. The clients can also access and browse their other pictures from the Dashboard. It allows them to view the other pictures, save them in their own gallery and get engaged with all social media platform. After the success of the Photomadic platform, we started working with lots of software companies with a contract of 2-3 years of projects, as we are having the software that they need. They can manage and experience all the things at once rather than one-half solution whenever they needed them.

What do you like most about the company?

They were asking real questions and more caring about our business. Looking at our problems and try to solve them in a quick and easy manner. We were together inventing. They look after the technology and future, hence with a technology development company, they were also a strategic company.

Role: Managing Partner and Economist at Impact DataSource LLC
Impact DataSource LLC with the help of Praxent built Economic Impact Engine. They had created one of the layers in an application which can deal with all of this calculations, but it needed to be flexible enough so that we could create new models on the fly. So they come up to this idea. The engine is really the core and heart of the subject, everything else is built upon it. Also, we were very quick in creating new models, depending upon the state, tax year and different industries. We have worked with community leaders to forecast and plan this kind of economic growth since 1993. New business locations are tricky topics and economic developer of cities and communities of countries are always interested in beginning an open area for all business start-ups. But the taxes that are to be paid, benefits they get is important to understand for the new business communities. Well, managing the complexity of tax distinct of countries was error sum and difficult to manage. Clients wanted to make the changes on the spot and see the results immediately. The cloud-based platform Praxent built is called the Impact Dashboard. In addition to access to impact data sources V/S proprietary calculation, the Economist can use the Impact Dashboard which directly allows making changes to the data without any waiting for the next data city counseller. The primary challenge was to take very complex and practical data, get it into the system, the way it was intuited from a sample and make sure that reports can be generated, which are considered by folks who didn’t know anything about Economical Development. They helped us manage users and help them set up the answers for the required questionnaires. Also, we need to set up a project with the right key values. Hence the whole platform was centrally manageable with every type of complex data by unifying all data into a single database.

What do you like most about the company?

Talking through their team about the whole concept was beneficial and kind of step out from spreadsheet level and think at a bigger level. In the 1st year, when launched the Dashboard online, we had a 60% increase in our subscription model. It helped to draw people to us, who haven’t heard of us before that is expanded client network. Also, there was lead by a 42% increase in total revenue. Every time they look at their client, they look forward to fundamentally change their game in the matter of business or even in their industry by giving them the best solutions and services.

Role: Founder & President at Interactive Health Technologies
Interactive Health Technologies LLC hired Praxent to develop a product which can identify the heart rate of children and thus help the society to reduce the problem of child obesity. We found the problem of physical education in schools across the country and thus thought to develop and design for the same. We knew that the key element of the product is a Heart rate of an individual but the issue was capturing, analyzing and sharing the data with teachers, parents and administrators. Thus they developed a product with the combination of cloud-based technology and a custom written Windows app that communicates wirelessly with a digital heart rate marker, which is worn by kids while working out. Kids while coming in the class tap in with their device and then goes for work out. While returning they tap out with their device, Hence this information goes instantly, effortlessly and automatically into desktop software and then to cloud-based technology. From there a snapshot reaches to students fitness progress and emailed to their parents and to the student themselves.

What do you like most about the company?

The work software engineers have done for us is take out a vision and create reality, which is not only helping the students across the country but eventually the globe. We are one step closer to the reality that how to make fitter and healthier world for our kids.

Role: Founder & CEO at Palaterra LLC
We are an in-store tasting agency based in Austin and were in need of a platform to disseminate about the information of each tasting of beers, wines, and spirits with each of our contractors. Praxent helped us built the Palaterra, the centralized online platform connecting us with the suppliers, retailers all over the Austin area. We have to incorporate the technology and need to coordinate with different requests across the market. The Palaterra platform gained nationality all over Texas and helped to manage the contractors with the best communication ideas with stores and buyers. Instead of reaching out to every contractor and asking whether they are available, we would literally post of the work at the Palaterra platform and it sends the job to individual markets and contractors available in the market will log on and basically bid on their job, so we can easily select the person qualified and complete the chain. After the launch Palaterra, we enabled our sales growth by 3 times, without hiring any employee in our central office.

What do you like most about the company?

Working with them has been a great experience. Their team has been reliable, providing feedback and also expanding my vision in helping me what I wanted to make and expanding it even further with the best option for our future upgrowing and profit.

What they should improve on?

Nothing much.
