About us: The PE Way

It’s more than a development methodology or a set of values. It’s the culmination of a culture filled with passionate people that breeds innovation and redefines what others know as ‘software development’. At Productive Edge, we don’t just build software – we create technology solutions that redefine what’s possible.

A Metrics-Driven Approach to Enterprise
Software Development

Discovery-Driven Solutions

Listen, Learn, Recommend, Align

Listen, Learn, Recommend, Align

Whatever your industry or business objectives, our seasoned team of business solution architects will work with you to learn your business and understand your goals. From there, we’ll recommend and align on the right technology solution. Every client’s business objectives are unique and require a specialized custom solution, we can help you find it.

Test Drive Your Solution: Develop and MVP

Test Drive Your Solution: Develop and MVP

Agile development is born out of the realization that no solution is perfectly conceived at the outset. This is because technology is always changing, and end user feedback always tells you something you didn’t anticipate. That’s why we believe in the power of an MVP (Minimum Viable Product): test drive your product before putting on the polish to make sure it exceeds expectations and achieves your business objectives.

User Experience-Centric Development

Before you can focus on building your product the right way, make sure you’re building the right thing. Our empirical approach focuses on testing each hypothesis underlying your solution and leveraging metrics to evaluate our progress toward your business goals at every step of the development process. Our UX Designers turn these metrics into enhancements that wow your users and amaze stakeholders.

User Experience-Centric Development

Distributed Practical Agile Approach

Making Agile Practical and Scalable

While the goal of Agile is to develop solutions in a more practical manner, we also know that it can mean extending timelines and budgets, which isn’t at all “practical.” At Productive Edge, we believe in Agile that is both flexible enough to create the best solutions and uncompromising when it comes to timelines and budgets.
