What we are building 

Have you ever wondered if there was a way to predict if a new release is going to break a critical user journey? Are you feeling frustrated that regardless of how much testing is done prior to a release, you can’t seem to detect the issues that impact the Customer Experience before your users do? Or what will be the user impact of a broken flow in my staging when it is released to production?  

If any of these questions intrigue you, we would love to have you a part of our founding team. We are on a quest to provide answers to these simple, yet very fundamental, questions by unifying digital experience analytics with the software delivery pipeline.
