We provide innovative software products that prioritize the needs of our clients in the legal and regulatory space. Our software development team are dedicated experts in the legislative and regulatory domain, contributing to the development of global standards.
Propylon was founded in 1999 by Declan Hogan, Paul McKeon, and Sean McGrath after many years working together on projects in the electronic publishing of legislation and regulations. Combining Declan’s and Paul’s business acumen with Sean’s technical expertise, Propylon became revolutionary in the world of electronic publishing, and built what was then the largest repository of XML/HTML in the world for the Irish Parliament, the Oireachtas . This in turn led to us creating a law-making system called the Parliamentary Workbench, closely followed by the creation of the Legislative Workbench (LWB).
From the Greek word meaning “portal”, or “gateway”, our business vision centres around being a gateway to providing better information for our clients. Our core mission focuses on giving you something beyond what was previously available by making processes more efficient and ultimately reducing your workload. In this sense, Propylon is very much a threshold, a crossing over beyond limitations, to better solutions, customized to meet your individual needs.
With our in-depth industry knowledge, we have a specialist understanding of the unique challenges that our clients face – and, most importantly, the experience, expertise, and drive to overcome those challenges.
