About Us

When we founded our company over twenty nine years ago, we originally started out as a general consulting organization and VAR. Like many companies that began in our era, we started in the homes of our founders in order to bootstrap ourselves into existence. At that time the IT landscape was very different from what you see today. Along with the rest of our industry, our organization also had to evolve in order to survive.

From the start we have provided software development services which continue to remains a central tenet of our company. Our software development experience allowed us to work with a variety of companies in a wide range of industries. It became clear that our core focus resolved itself to be that our identity revolves around enabling commerce in its many forms.

Today we are still based just outside of Philadelphia in historic Bucks County, PA. When we started, our reach was limited to the metropolitan Philadelphia region. As we grew we developed relationships with larger clients that have a national footprint and we worked with and supported them both regionally and nationally. As an early provider of our own e-Commerce platforms, we also built and developed relationships with clients around the globe.

Now with our experience and own resources, we provide services that help businesses expand and grow their own commerce solutions. Our team of developers can work with you to make your project happen. From integration of disparate systems, wireless and mobile solutions, to completely custom applications, we can help your organization move forward on new opportunities.

Agile Methodology

Individuals and Interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to changes as plans unfold and evolve

Agile development methodologies allow teams to efficiently deliver results. XCENT has been applying the principles of Agile before it had a name.

The principles of Agile allow us to deliver working software quicker, which allows you, the customer, to evaluate quicker and make course corrections in the direction the project is heading. Delivery is measured in days and weeks instead of months and years.


We value the relationship we have with our implementation partners.
