2021 was a strong year that included new product enhancements and product development that met customer needs. Lots of planning for scaling the business was done, too. We analyzed and improved internal processes in preparation for growth in 2022. We hired new executive members, bolstered the engineering team and will be more than doubling our team size in the next 12 months. 

In 2021 product updates focused on supporting developers with powerful tools that reduce time to market and coding labor.  You can see how we achieved this in our Enhancement Summary below. 

In 2022, we are changing gears to deliver product updates focused on the marketer's experience. We kick off the year by introducing Duo Mode Editor. Duo Mode gives real-time viewing of content editing. It consolidates the process of editing, saving, and viewing edits to content fields by keeping these tasks in a single view in the Manager. It comes replete with collapsible content nav sections for maximal page real estate utilization and affords marketers a huge advantage when looking to iterate on content quickly by getting immediate content editing feedback. Check out the video demo here.
