“I was looking for a scalable solution to move us forward”

“I was looking for a scalable solution that my team can use to quickly deploy applications. What I’m looking for in a technology is something that’s scalable, something that is not monolithic, something where I can find people to come onto the platform and work. Kibo did a great job providing the API layer for the solution for us to move forward.”

“The thing that ultimately made Kibo stand out was just that it did everything well.”

“Kibo has the ability to define data really well in the back end, which many of the SaaS competitors are not as good at. And so we have some specific use cases where we need to tie pretty complex product data to say, the image gallery, or to other pieces of the user experience. And the ability to customize that schema to be able to do so was a real advantage for Kibo.”
