PromptWorks Grows in Customers, Employees and Awards During Its Second Anniversary Year

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - Jul 21, 2015) - PromptWorks, a Philadelphia-based consulting shop delivering customized web and mobile web applications, celebrates its two-year anniversary this month with several new customers, a solid employee base and a growing reputation as a business partner known for excellence. PromptWorks credits its multi-million dollar growth to the firm's unique ability to listen to and respond to clients' needs and its battle-tested team of experts who build on popular open-source software to create or enhance solutions that clients use to interact with their own customers.

According to Greg Sterndale, Software Engineer and one of the company's three co-founders, "We take on the tough challenges our clients have in web and mobile web applications, and become an extension of their IT teams to prioritize and then solve critical business issues. No other shop in the Greater Philadelphia area has this expertise, and we have expanded our client base across the region and gradually across the United States over the past two years."

Increasingly, Fortune 500 companies turn to PromptWorks to assist in their product development efforts. A global media and technology company, a leading IT solutions provider in the financial services sector, a national leader in retail and an international social media information network are among the household brands PromptWorks has partnered with in the last several months. Additionally, PromptWorks continues to help startups, IT, and enterprise companies in a variety of industries, such as technology, financial services, healthcare, consumer goods, diversified entertainment, retail, alternative energy and more. Just recently, PromptWorks helped one of its alternative energy clients, Clean Markets, win a U.S. Department of Energy Commercialization Challenge Award.

"We knew what we wanted to do, so we turned to PromptWorks to help us figure out how to develop the software. Partnering with PromptWorks gave us the expertise we needed to develop a signature offering, one that will help building owners understand the costs and benefits of making energy efficient upgrades to their buildings," said Ellen Lutz, CEO of Clean Markets.

"No matter the size of the operation or the type of industry, businesses always have these technical issues that keep managers up at night and prevent processes from running as smoothly as managers hope," said Jason Garber, PromptWorks Co-Founder and Software Engineer. Jason should know. A serial entrepreneur, Jason founded his first web development company at the age of 14 and grew the company for the next decade by addressing key business needs.

Since its founding in 2013, PromptWorks has hired 14 developers who are masters in a wide range of programming languages such as Ruby, JavaScript or Python as well as in practices such as agile, test-driven development and pair programming. All told, more than two dozen significant projects have been completed successfully, a remarkable track record for a startup.

Michael Nicholaides, PromptWorks Co-Founder and Software Engineer, concluded, "Our rigorous recruiting process ensures we hire high-quality team members who can help us guide clients through the software development process. At the end of the day, we are about delivering a capital investment that will return value for many years to come -- one that doesn't need to be set aside when the business changes."
