Learnings

CG Custom Guide came to 729 Solutions with very clear requirements and a strong vision. The challenge for 729 Solutions was to take the client’s ideas and implement them into the Zendesk platform which wasn’t intended to be used for what the client had in mind.

From the beginning, it was critical that 729 Solutions work closely with the client to define user flows and diagrams. From there, prototypes could quickly be built using Adobe XD. This allowed the client and 729 Solutions to validate workflows before any code was written.

729 Solutions was able to successfully aggregate data, build functionality based on complex workflows, and implement many deep customizations within the Zendesk platform that can be leveraged in future projects.
