The story behind Stitchology
We have talked a great deal about the Stitchology acquisition. However, we realize that many of you may have questions about the Stitchology story and how it works with TryMyUI. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
The Stitchology co-founders, Shruti Goli and Karthik Ravi, met freshman year while studying Computer Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Throughout their time at the university, they took numerous classes together. During their senior year of college, they actually took a CS + advertising class, where they went through their first iteration of starting a company, collecting feedback, and creating a prototype for customers. Post-college, Shruti went on to be a Product Manager at Microsoft, while Karthik became a Data Engineer at Facebook.
The birth of a company
In the wake of COVID-19, multiple brand owners suffered the impact of the global pandemic. Therefore, Shruti and Karthik wanted to help them. They launched a marketplace called ShopSustainably, where they onboarded numerous sustainable e-commerce brands. They wanted to leverage their technical skills to help these businesses increase their revenue. Creating that marketplace allowed them to be familiar with the technologies, marketing strategies, and operations of a brand owner.
As they tried to increase sales on the ShopSustainably platform and get brand owners’ feedback, Shruti and Karthik realized that there was a huge gap when any ads were being run on clothing items. Brand owners could only see how many people were clicking on the clothing item when they saw the ad, but they had no idea what users were thinking. Shruti and Karthik started tracking all the mouse movements of customers on ShopSustainably to see how they were related to the ads. From there, they were able to increase their sales. They then realized that these analytics could be beneficial to anyone who ran ads. And that is when Stitchology was born.
All about synergy
When TryMyUI came into the picture, it was instantly clear that the two companies were meant to connect. As a result of this partnership, together, they can build a platform that will revolutionize product-led growth. Both tools seek to address concerns around understanding customers, and together they create a powerful tool that closes the UX research loop.
With Stitchology data paired with TryMyUI usability testing, you are able to better understand why certain user behaviors and patterns exist. Then, when you take the changes you made from TryMyUI’s usability testing and evaluate the data on Stitchology afterwards, you are able to clearly see if you have resolved the issues that exist within your users’ behavior.
