30 Most Valuable Companies to Watch 2019


Mobify: “Our Mission is to help brands deliver amazing commerce experiences to everyone”

When it comes to the latest tech in ecommerce, there's a whole new layer to it. Have you heard of Front-end as a Service (FaaS)? No? Well, that's the latest technological offering when it comes to ecommerce. Taking FaaS to new heights in Mobify- a company that prioritizes customer experiences.

Mobify was launched to do things differently. The company believes that one shouldn’t be forcing ecommerce functionality through a Content Management System (CMS). Similarly, you shouldn’t have to force content through an ecommerce platform. And to do things uniquely, Mobify set out to connect these systems to a new Front-end as a Service that gives a ‘customer-first’ experience. Once the systems are connected, it’s capable of bringing both to their highest capabilities.

Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Mobify was founded in 2007. If you’re looking to build a modern, customer-first shopping experience, Mobify is your go-to partner. It’s not just about Front-end as a Service, but it also includes Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), native apps, and Progressive Web Apps (PWA). When you combine all of this, the end-user experience is certainly highlighted. For instance, the FaaS enables leading global brands to embrace a superior PWA experience on mobile. This can be further extended to other digital gadgets including tablets, desktops, etc.

Over the past decade, Mobify has proved that it works as a seamless extension of ecommerce and IT teams. Popular global brands like Debenhams, Crabtree & Evelyn, Lancôme, Lilly Pulitzer, US AutoParts, Hobbycraft, PureFormulas, and Carnival Cruise Line rely on Mobify for new digital innovations. All of these brands and other popular retailers use the Mobify Platform to drive immediate revenue. The end result is a friction-free shopping experience with Mobify. It’s found that the firm can reduce friction up to 43% than the previous generation mobile sites.

A new layer of potentiality

With Mobify, you have the potential to unlock agility. There’s a new layer of separation when you introduce Front-end as a Service. Today, a customer has access to millions of data and information. A rate at which a customer’s expectations and preferences change is very fast. In such a scenario, a retailer requires to focus on new web technology to retain customers and give them an excellent customer experience. When you require a heavy redeploy of a monolithic CMS or ecommerce platform, keeping pace with these fast changes is nearly impossible. With Mobify, you can enable your teams to do frequent UX testing and deployments, and at the same time, bring out a fast and mature organization.

For any business organization, providing the best customer experience is of utmost importance, not just for today, but for the future as well. Mobify believes that a “Front-end as a Service will future-proof your customer experience investments.” This is achievable by disengaging the backend from the front-end. The advantage here is that when the time to re-platform comes, it’ll not affect the customer-facing experience. When large websites need to redesign every couple of years, a continuous iteration and quick adoption of the latest web tech is possible. You don’t need to start over right from the scratch!
