These advanced offerings, now paired with Amplience’s API-first technology, enables Kibo customers to take advantage of Amplience’s content management platform for their headless commerce and personalization strategies.
“Competing in the retail industry today is complicated enough,” said Ram Venkataraman, Chief Technology Officer, Kibo. “It’s for this reason that we’re proud to partner with Amplience to make sure retailers are equipped with the most modern technology to simplify their approach to headless commerce, experience management and more. We believe strongly in giving retailers the freedom and the flexibility to succeed, and this partnership is another meaningful way we’re delivering on that belief.”
