The Bigger Picture

We believe our time needs to be focused on business strategy, getting to know how our clients business works so that we can offer the best strategic input. We don’t limit ourselves to what is in front of us, we work hard to see the bigger picture.

A bit about Sagetree

Founded in 2005 by Richard Yumul, Sagetree has been helping clients redefine how they connect, collaborate, and communicate.  Dedicated to continuous improvement, integrity, and service we deliver deep expertise, innovation and experience.  Our team gets excited being challenged to find the sweet spot between Open Source technology, clients’ business goals, and an elegant user experience.

What our clients have to say about us

Delight Fit

Rich and his team created a powerfully innovative site for our company that far exceeded our expectations. While the site was developed on a tight budget and timeline, Rich delivered on all counts. The quality of the technology development was such that he also qualified as co-inventor on our patent. Rich is a top notch developer.

– Peter O’Sullivan, CEO

Reach the World

Reach the World became a Sage Tree client in a very trying time. A small nonprofit, we had just had our website rebuild project fall apart when the independent contractor with whom we were working abandoned our project midstream. We searched high and low for a web-building company that would appreciate our status as a nonprofit; perform the unglamorous work of auditing the previous designer’s codebase; and then bring our project to fruition. Sage Tree was rock-solid in all of these task areas. Doug Hoffman, the project manager, is one of those rare people who can actually communicate with BOTH non-tech people (us) and tech people (them)! He has a passion for the kind of work we do, and this really came through in his management of the project. We emerged with a fantastic Drupal site with some significant customizations that has performed for us, bug-free, for going on two years. Cheers to Sage Tree!

– Heather Halstead, Executive Director

Blackford Creative

Rich Yumul and his team at Sage Tree are among my favorite devs. They really know their stuff, they’re extremely versatile, they’re very sweet and supportive, and there’s never any drama on the projects they touch. Perhaps most importantly for me, they’re also extremely reasonably priced, especially for the level of expertise they provide. I plan to use them again and again without hesitation.

– Evan Blackford, Executive Director

Events Online

These guys know Drupal. I’ve been working successfully on client projects with the Sage Tree team for almost a decade. I can’t recommend them highly enough for providing not only websites, but guidance and suggestions to make each project successful for the client’s business goals.

– Bruce Gresham, CEO
