Community TechKnowledge Testimonial

“Project Balance helped us get Apricot, our flagship product, off the ground. They validated requirements, worked with our development team to design a user friendly application, and helped us define a QA process. Without Project Balance’s continued diligence the implementation of this key project would have been delayed.”

Well Beyond Care Testimonial

“There is an old saying, ‘The third time is the charm,’ and in my company’s case it is true. Prior to working with Project Balance, Well Beyond Care had engaged with two other vendors to develop a revolutionary caregiving app, but unfortunately both of them failed to deliver to specifications. So, after a great deal of time and capital spent, we were in a bind and fortunately were referred to Project Balance. Not only did they deliver a superior product, they did it within the time and monetary constraints placed upon them. They approached the problem as engineers first, and software developers second, resulting in a very fine solution.”

Arch Re North America Testimonial

“Project Balance was instrumental in helping Arch Re Fac transform our data into insight and insight into action. They led interactive requirements workshops and worked closely with our subject matter experts to design and develop a data warehouse with Power BI analytics. We went from spending days and weeks preparing reports, to seconds. Project Balance made sense of our data and created visualizations used at all levels of the organization – from the executive level to assistant underwriters. They put us on the path of turning our data into an asset, leveraged everyday by our underwriters for making informed business decisions.”
