About 729 Solutions

Our History

729 Solutions has grown from their start as a software development shop, to a prominent full-service technology consulting agency. The founders met in the digital agency world at the end of the 1990s, surviving the bursting tech bubble with the conviction that the tech world would recover. Focusing on finding exceptional people with rich skill sets, they grew their team and made the shift from a boutique software development shop to multi-faceted, international, technology consulting agency.

As our team grew, so grew our need to maintain control, quality and manage projects with precision.

We needed to deliver

  • Excellent front end design and user experience
  • Scalable backend server, database and programmatic solutions
  • Top-notch design, with integrated UI/UX
  • Tailored marketing solutions.

729 became a strict Agile shop using Pivotal Tracker to prioritize, forecast, monitor and deliver complex technology solutions. Our Velocity Based Agile process has been perfected over hundreds of projects with everything from Fortune 500 to small and medium sized companies alike.

Who we are

We are problem solvers.

We think outside the box.

We’re based in San Francisco, but our hearts beat with more of a mid-west mentality.

We are software engineers, developers, designers, project managers, writers, marketers, and most importantly – human beings.

We are leaders in the world of software development, design, and implementation.

We are a one-stop-shop, you might say, and proud of it.

We are 729 Solutions – and we make awesome happen through caffeine and technology. If you can think of it … we can do it.

What We Do

We take your ideas and make them a reality.

From inception through completion and beyond, our project managers will guide your project with coordination and communication so that none of the pieces fall through the cracks.

We provide solutions and make them work efficiently.

Our Departments

DEVELOPMENT

With specialties ranging from complex systems architecture, software development, implementations and integrations, we can accomplish your App Engineering & Development, Website Development, API Connections, and Custom Agile needs.  Our technology consulting team will help you get the results you need. Whether it’s a massive infrastructure with multiple integrations and intense functionality, or a simple, straightforward single page website – we’ve got you covered.

MAINTENANCE & OPERATIONS

The fun doesn’t stop when the project goes live.  We offer post-project support such as hosting, scheduled maintenance and updates to front and back-end systems, and monitoring to ensure your project is up and running continuously.  Or, if your in-house team wants to take over from here, we can provide guidance and recommendations on making that transition as seamless as possible.

PARTNER SERVICES

3rd party services like Zendesk, NewRelic and AWS are meant to simplify your life – but things often get worse before they get better.  “Insert 729 Solutions here”. We help take the pain out of integrations, customization, and setup for products like Zendesk, NewRelic, and AWS by preforming consultations, health-checks, and migrations.  Reach out and let’s see if we can help simplify your processes today.

DESIGN

Our developers make it work, our designers make it look good. It’s not just about fonts and colors – we study how your users will interact with the product and design around them. The result is a product that is functional not only on the back end, but at the point of customer ingestion as well. Let us take your Responsive Websites, App Designs, UI/UX needs, Presentations, Interactive Demos, Brand Systems, Logos and Corporate Identity to a new level. And yes, it’s all under one roof!
