Congruent was selected for development of 'Finance Guidance System™'


Customer Situation

  • Required a hosted ASP.NET solution for its proprietary concept (a behavioral based ‘Financial Guidance System™’)
  • Customer tested two vendors for development with no success, after which, it approached Congruent

Software Development Partnership

  • Congruent was engaged to complete an application built on remnants of previous development efforts
  • Soon after, it became clear that previous vendor’s developments were not scalable and contained little usability
  • Congruent recommended starting over to create a stable and scalable application

"Congruent has proved to be an excellent partner, starting from a thoughtful and complete analysis of our project, through a detailed, but ruthlessly efficient discovery, fast prototyping and development process…Congruent is staffed with genuinely good people who care about their clients and their clients’ success."
