Why we built Shape.
Our founding team's experience in digital marketing lends a perspective to product decisions that is especially empathetic to the day-to-day challenges faced by our customers. This is the product we always wished existed.
We've spent a lot of time manually updating Excel spreadsheets and Google Docs. An analyst's time is valuable. Time should be spent on the fun challenges of being an analyst: the optimization leading to improvement of performance. Analysts know the more time spent on optimizing the better it is for everyone.
Shape is a team of developers, designers and analysts with the goal of serving digital marketing professionals and the organizations they run.
