The Amplience Founding Story
Blood, sweat and tears should never be a feature of creating digital experiences.
Yet there they were. A key requirement of the monolith stack. Mind-numbing frustrations and impossibilities were an endemic, pervasive daily reality for digital and ecommerce teams in the mid-2000s. And it wasn’t just a handful of issues either.
Integration and deployment was layered with complexity. It took months, years even, and incurred huge costs. The resulting solution was static and clunky. Want to add shoppable media? That’ll be an upgrade. Want to grow your business? That’ll be a replatfom. Want to exercise even the smallest amount of choice and freedom in how you do your work? No chance.
The technology was tired, stubborn and brittle. It wouldn’t scale and was massively unreliable at peak periods. Stressful for the business. Disappointing for the customer. Frustrations for the creatives were mirrored by those for the developers, who were stuck using archaic programming languages. Each new change required a multi-skilled team adding to the already high cost and complexity with little to show for it.
Legacy CMS and ecommerce suites were hindering those teams that wanted to move quickly. Instead of offering a solution they became the problem. Because they weren’t created for innovation. Or evolution. They were created for one channel. And one device. A 20th century solution that didn’t see the future coming. A future that declared itself with a bang in 2007: the arrival of the iPhone.
The impact of the iPhone on ecommerce cannot be overstated. Almost overnight everything changed. And it was more complex than merely needing a mobile ecommerce site to match your desktop one. The new tech was matched by new consumer expectations and demands for performance, content, and integrated experiences.
Legacy solutions were created for one channel. And one device. A 20th century solution that didn’t see the future coming.
We knew what we hated.
We knew what didn’t work. We wanted to free digital teams from the constraints and sky-high costs of legacy tech.
We wanted new methods. Simple processes. Intuitive tools. Flexible integrations. We wanted to imbue confidence that innovation could be fast. Could be easy. Could work. And could evolve.
We wanted freedom. For ourselves and our customers. We wanted to work without restriction. To dream big and deliver bigger. We wanted to create a platform that could not only withstand the pace of change, but would drive it. We wanted to create the complete opposite of a monolith.
To do that, we knew everything we built had to exist in the Cloud. It would make implementation super easy, automate upgrades and get rid of people being trapped in the endless replatforming cycles.
Harness the power of modern tech to create the freedom to do more.
Industries will shift.
Technologies will evolve. And we will always be ready.
Because Amplience is so much more than a reactive response to a smartphone. It's a proactive shaping of the future. A future where you can create without constraint. Innovate and differentiate. Perform at scale. And define the way you work.
Enough of the old way of doing things. It’s done. It’s over. We’re putting a stake in the ground now. And we’re going to shout about it. We want to build a world where there are no limits to the digital experiences that can be created. That’s what freedom means to us. It wasn’t possible with the old model. But it’s possible now. And with freedom the possibilities are endless. How you use that freedom is up to you. Amplience will make sure you have it.
