Praeses Celebrates 25 Years As Technology Leader


Shreveport-Based Technology Company Marks Milestone Anniversary

Shreveport, Louisiana (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Praeses, a national leader in providing trusted information management, technology consulting and software development, announced today that October marks the company's 25th anniversary as the one of the largest software development companies headquartered in the state of Louisiana.

Founded in 1987, Praeses began providing services in the public telephone industry. The company engineered processes and technology to validate millions of telephone transactions via public communications. The company's success in managing public communications for clients such as Rite Aid, Circle K, Saks of Fifth Avenue, and Waffle House, resulted in national recognition. As pay telephones yielded to cell phones, Praeses directed its proprietary processes to the telecommunications environments of the corrections industry. Praeses is now the largest provider in the United States of inmate telecommunications management, RFP and contract consulting, reconciliation, and market intelligence services – with clients coast to coast including Sarasota County Florida, the Kansas Department of Corrections, Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, San Francisco County Sheriff's Department, and the Fairfax County Sheriff's Office.

In 2001, Praeses began development of Jurisdiction Online, a web-based software suite designed to automate secure communications required between businesses and the jurisdictions that legislate inspection compliance. Jurisdiction Online soon evolved into the preferred information management solution for state and local governments for oversight of regulated objects such as boilers, pressure vessels, amusement rides and elevators. Today, Jurisdiction Online is the operating system for regulatory management aspects in 24 states, 31 state agencies, the city of Detroit and over 90 municipalities – covering over 3 million pieces of equipment.

Leveraging a wealth of highly talented computer scientists, Praeses performs technology consulting and custom application/software development for selected customers. Projects of public success include automation technology for the US Army, mobility solutions which improve efficiencies for the US Navy, production systems for the US Coast Guard, and additional proprietary applications for the Insurance and Corrections industries. In addition, many federal agency leaders are trusting Praeses to assist them in developing vital solutions for their government operations.

“Over the years, Praeses has expanded our technology capacity and successfully grown into multiple lines of business”, stated Frank Auer, Chief Executive Officer of Praeses. “We could not have reached this milestone without our customers, who trust us with their mission critical processes.”

Kempten Schwab, President of Praeses, commented, “We are proud to celebrate this significant achievement as it represents a lot of hard work from our employees. I credit this success in a large part to everyone who has contributed over the 25 years. They are, and have been, the key to the longevity of this company.”
