About Us


Marc D. Anderson

Marc has over 30 years of experience in technology professional services and software development. Over a wide-ranging career in consulting as well as line manager positions, Marc has proven himself as a problem solver and leader who can solve difficult technology problems for organizations across a wide variety of industries and organization sizes.

Prior to cofounding Sympraxis Consulting, Marc was Director of Operations at Jornata, a Boston-based technology consulting firm, which was acquired by Vitale, Caturano in the Spring of 2008. Marc has also held positions at world-class services firms such as Bain and Company, KPMG, and Renaissance Solutions. Marc also had a “real job”, managing the systems for Staples‘ delivery business as it grew from a $30 million “experiment” to an over $1 billion main line business unit. Having started his career as an assembly language and FORTRAN programmer, Marc truly knows what life is like “in the trenches” and brings that perspective to bear for all of his clients.

Marc has a Bachelors of Arts in Computer Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania and graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, NH.


Julie M. Turner

Julie has been building software on primarily the Microsoft platform for over 20 years. With a degree in Electrical Engineering specializing in microprocessor system design from Worcester Polytechnic Institute she came at software initially from a very low level but quickly realized a love and aptitude for developing rich user experiences and solutions.

She worked her way up through internal IT ranks reaching a Director of IT position before realizing more impact could be made in consulting and really focused in on the SharePoint platform in 2007. Since then her focus has been on the SharePoint platform, Office 365, Azure, and client side development. She’s the co-author of the Widget Wrangler JavaScript library and continues to try and help innovate SharePoint and Office 365 solutions for her clients.



At Sympraxis our goal is to give you a value-added experience that is completely customized to your needs. But with that in mind below are some highlights of areas we focus in.

  • Intranet Development and Customization on Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises
  • Governance, Permissions, Taxonomy, Information Architecture, and Business Intelligence
  • Business Process Automation
  • Customer and Partner Portals

SPServices is a jQuery library which abstracts SharePoint’s Web Services and makes them easier to use. It also includes functions which use the various Web Service operations to provide more useful (and cool) capabilities. It works entirely client side and requires no server install.

Not only did we build SPServices, we use it regularly with all versions of SharePoint. If you need help getting up to speed with the library or are looking for more information, this is the place.

Widget Wranglar Tester

Built by Bob German and our own Julie Turner, the Widget Wrangler is a light weight framework for managing the loading of javascript “widgets” on a web page. Widgets are self contained, and and can be developed in any JavaScript framework such as AngularJS, jQuery, KnockOut, or plain JavaScript. Widgets are easy to reuse in multiple execution environments, such as on a SharePoint page, in a content editor web part, in a SharePoint add-in, or outside of SharePoint entirely.

Check out the Office Dev PnP Web Cast – Introducing Widget Wrangler for SharePoint development for more info and links.
