Challenger Brands are changing the world of commerce
The future of online shopping is being built today by new, disruptive brands such as Thrillist and Houzz through the integration of content, commerce and community. Brands must continually innovate to keep ahead of the game and maintain relevancy to todays’ consumer.
Commerce As Usual often results in disjointed user experiences
As consumer needs have evolved and technologies have lagged behind, many brands have been forced to create patchwork experiences that try to present the user with both a streamlined shopping experience and beautiful brand experience. Often these end up as separate, disjointed user flows.
The Industry is recognizing that a new approach is needed
If brands can seamlessly unify content, commerce and community experiences then the brand has the ability to tell a fully cohesive, and integrated story to the consumer. These well branded, engaging experiences will ultimately drive loyalty, trust and conversion.

Challenges faced by our customers
Commerce platforms are excellent at managing product and transactional data, however are not designed to manage site experiences.
IT dependencies for marketing experiences
IT teams need solutions that will reduce dependencies on IT and enable business teams to make content updates directly. This way IT can concentrate on crucial commerce capabilities the customer expects, but may not be overtly aware of... until they fail.
Managing content workflows
Building and managing workflows and approval flows for content and translation is difficult. Sometimes the content is all kept in an excel spreadsheet with minimal context, others use a google doc, and some clients email content back and forth. At best, this leaves lots of room for human error. At worst, it leads to small teams going rogue and publishing in appropriate content.
Creating brand differentiation through content & social media
Differentiating your brand through traditional commerce platforms today is extremely hard. Many end up with minimal brand differentiation (if any) and blending together in the eyes of the consumer
Managing non-product content
Commerce platforms are built to manage and control tons of data and very structured content, and do so very successfully, however they were not designed to manage unstructured content marketers and merchants need to keep their sites fresh and up to date.
