Performant Software Solutions LLC

We partner with scholars in the humanities to build software tools for research, teaching, and publishing.


We provide services in project concept and grant proposal development, technology implementation, hosting, maintenance, training and support to complement our partners' domain expertise.


We write software for humanities research and teaching, using modern, open source, standard web technologies, including Ruby on Rails, HTML5, component-based JavaScript, TEI, IIIF and Web Annotation.


We offer a suite of digital tools, developed in partnership with humanities scholars, for working with texts, images, data and maps. Your data is always secure and exportable in industry-standard formats.
