We bring in solution architects for most of our projects in the beginning so we can figure out the most efficient route to execute most projects. We believe in workflow efficiency and that results in time and monetary savings for you, our client.

AZENCE’s founder, Tricia –
First bootstrapped the startup in 2011, while serving as Marketing Director in a previous work engagement. AZENCE was incorporated in early October 2011, same week as the passing of Steve Jobs, popularly known for his work with Apple, constantly pushing the envelop in beautifully designed products such as the iPod and iPad. As someone who was much inspired by Steve Job’s philosophy to keep things simple and zen-like, she decided to name the company AZENCE – the ZEN in AZENCE is a tribute to Steve Jobs for bringing ZEN into the workplace, a reminder to always keep things simple, succinct in the solutions AZENCE provides.
The goal of AZENCE
Was to SIMPLIFY the process of digital outsourcing by matchmaking project owners with skilled resources, drive more projects to the AZENCE freelance team. Before starting AZENCE, Tricia’s freelancers confided that they struggled with finding continuous work at sites such as E-Lance, Guru and oDesk. Many of them were spending more than 20% of their time responding to quotes but only acquiring a few. Experienced specialists often found it difficult to compete for jobs that were awarded to quotations at a fraction of what it would take to do quality work. Tricia believed that there’s a better model out there than the likes of E-Lance and set out to create a platform that can drive continuous leads, improve efficiencies, so that web specialists can focus more on producing, rather than sales and marketing.
In today’s economy, with technologies diversifying at breakneck speeds, it seemed obvious the natural evolution would take the form of more outsourcing, especially for small businesses. It’s nearly impossible to hire and upkeep an internal team of marketing and IT with all the broad range of skill sets necessary to manage adequately. Since the world wide web provided a platform for an influx of readily available contract work, women making up 71% majority of the freelance community, why not put more of these capable freelancers to work? Tricia observed that some of the best quality work sometimes came from dedicated stay-at-home mums who are well-versed in designing or programming using the latest software and technology. She set out to build a community where AZENCE helps clients define business goals, implement quick, cost-effective solutions and continuously matchmake various aspects of each project! AZENCE aims to be creative, efficient and deliver delightful solutions to our clientele!

Incredibly organized, easy to communicate with, responsive with next iterations, and beautiful work.
I hired Tricia to build our website on a tight time frame. She totally nailed it within scope and budget by working around the clock. Tricia also had her own high standards that she delivered extra services and values to the website at no extra charge. For a person like Tricia, I would totally love to work with her again and would trust her for the next couple projects.Binxuan C, Sales & Marketing Manager, Real China Group
Tricia understands how to move a company's marketing web presence into something that will be both user-friendly and will optimize search engine results.

She lead a major shift in our website which increased the kind of quality leads we wanted.Mara P., COO, DirectNET, Inc.
The exceptional service that we have received from Tricia and her teams. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. The design work and concept have always been responsive to our needs and accomplished the design within our time frame. We highly recommend Azence, truly remarkable services.Wallace Y.
Yes. It was a great experience. My brand got clarified and the website looks great. Tricia and Abby were fun to work with and very competent. Using the Basecamp platform made communications between us easy. It organized and logged the whole process. I used another high quality web development team some years ago based in Santa Rosa, CA with amazing results. Azence is on a par with the previous company i used. Azence also made it easy for me to have more input and their pricing is more reasonable.Cedar KellyThe Solar Revolution Project
