Tell us about yourselves
Since 2002 we have provided solutions to clients trying to navigate the digital highway without a proper map.
Solutions include website hosting, website design and management, database administration, email marketing, search engine optimization, social media management, technology consultations and even computer repair.
We work closely with individuals, charities and small businesses to enhance their web presence in an increasingly complex world.
Where are you located?
We are located just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania however most of our clients work with us over the Internet. If you need a face-to-face consultation or computer repair and you are in the Pittsburgh area please give us a call or use our contact form and we will make every effort to meet with you.
Where did you get your name?
The short answer is that it’s the owner’s two-digit birth year reversed. But we quickly found other correlations and coincidences after deciding on 37. For example, 3+7 = 10 and 10 in binary is 2 which is the answer to our favorite nerd joke:
There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don’t.
Being a jack-of-all-trades agency we needed a name to tie all of our skills together so that we didn’t have to buy 37 domain names and “solutions” seemed to fit.
The owner has a full-time job so 3 x 7 is also the approximate number of hours he works per week on his side business. Three hours per day, seven days per week. His significant other would say it’s closer to 5 x 7 but 57 solutions just seems like bragging.
Are you related to 37signals?
Not at all. We love their products and we even use Basecamp, their project management software, for all of our website designs and re-designs as well as some ongoing projects with our clients but we are not affiliated with them.
Incidentally, if you’re wondering how 37signals came up with their name…
Mankind constantly analyzes radio waves from outer space in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Since this analysis started, almost all of the signal sources have been identified. 37 signals, however, remain unexplained.
Here are some fun facts and mathematical geekery about the number 37.
- It’s the natural number following 36 and preceding 38 (thanks for the enlightenment Wikipedia!)
- It’s a prime number
- It is the only two digit number in base 10 whose product, when multiplied by two, subtracted by one, and then read backwards, equals the original two digit number. To summarize: 37 x 2 = 74 – 1 = 73 and 73 backwards is 37

Even More Geekery
Less math, more geek.
- 37 is the normal human body temperature in degrees Celsius
- It’s the number of plays William Shakespeare is thought to have written
- SPAM (the canned meat) was invented in 1937
How many of you are there?
It would be cool if we could say 37 but right now there’s just one of us. By using “We” throughout the site instead of “I” we save our future-selves precious time changing “I’s” to “We’s” after we hire some more staff. Internet high five to the future us!
We hire contractors to do some of the Photoshop, Logo Design and heavy coding but right now we don’t have any full-time employees. If you’re interested in an unpaid internship we could use about 36 people.
Why not 38 solutions?
38?! Well that’s just crazy talk. I mean, who could come up with 38 solutions??
