Industry and Technology Expertise

Praeses has over 30 years of experience building comprehensive solutions for companies throughout many industries, including financial services, manufacturing, shipbuilding, energy, state and local governments, law enforcement, healthcare, media, and many other industries.

What We Do

Business Process Consulting, Reengineering and Automation

Smart companies uncover areas of opportunity by regularly evaluating their business processes. At Praeses, we help clients uncover their inefficiencies and understand how applying technology can reduce time to market, lower costs, and differentiate them in their market. We incorporate philosophies and problem-solving frameworks, such as Lean, Six Sigma, and Theory of Constraints, to heighten process performance.

Agile Software Development

The days of developing enterprise systems behind closed doors only to discover they don’t meet customer requirements until after they’ve been delivered are long gone. Praeses embraces the agile software development methodology and delivers incremental, functional software that incorporates customer feedback throughout the process to ensure our systems meet or exceed expectations.

Mobile Application Development

Today’s mobile applications must offer much more than a pretty interface and positive user experience. At Praeses, our mobile applications integrate with your company’s back-end enterprise systems to deliver value to the enterprise and your customers. Our development team engineers cross-platform solutions for iOS, Android, and Windows that link to your financial, inventory, and production systems.

Legacy Systems Modernization

Companies in many industries continue to rely on information systems developed decades ago. Over time, they’ve added systems and created enterprise ecosystems not originally intended to work together. Today, companies have a real need to update their legacy systems. At Praeses, we help clients to not only identify and choose processes and systems to replace, we also write the software to support the changes.

Systems Integration

Praeses Business Technologies offers application, information, and mobility integration services to make your business more agile – boosting your productivity and enabling informed decision-making. Using proven methods, we offer services to make the entire process more inclusive and effective for your organization. Our technology professionals provide solutions that are both beneficial and customized to your business.

“After endless attempts to force many existing forest products systems into fitting our needs, I knew we were going to have to pursue our own unique information management system. We chose the Praeses team and worked in partnership with them, through providing industry insight and operations specific to Snider Industries. We created a 21st century solution.”
