Before Kibo, we felt locked into what we had. We wanted to do more than just easily build workflows with Rest APIs and needed a solution with the ability to extend the core functionality of the platform. Kibo opened the door to being able to customize to whatever the design and UX team can think of.
Juan Lopez
Director of Product Development, City Furniture
Kibo has the ability to define data really well in the back end, which many of the SaaS competitors are not as good at. We have some specific use cases where we need to tie pretty complex product data to pieces of the user experience. The ability to customize that schema is a real advantage.
