Today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the Optimizely Labs Platform. Optimizely Labs was built out of the need of many Optimizely customers: Getting step-by-step instructions on how to get the most out of Optimizely’s digital experience platform through APIs, integrations, and custom solutions.
For companies looking to thrive online, a smart technology stack is crucial; yet today it is still extremely time-consuming for companies to build integrations and custom solutions, without spending thousands of costly engineering hours.
Companies that do not integrate their technology stack are missing out on crucial data points, essential to better understand their customers’ behaviors. This is exactly where Optimizely Labs comes in.
So what does this mean for customers and partners? Let’s find out!
Customers: Get Access To Built-For-You Integrations & Custom Solutions Today
Optimizely Labs is an integrated, code-first solution to publish custom Optimizely solutions & integrations. Partners and customers have already published solutions that span across areas like integrations with third-party platforms, data analysis notebooks or Optimizely Web extensions.
Each solution follows a step-by-step template so regardless of the solution you pick, you’ll see right away what needs to be done to implement and validate that the solution is working as expected.
Partners & Customers: what benefits do you get by getting your solutions published on Optimizely Labs?
When published, your solution gets its very own landing page, and allows Optimizely customers to either download, integrate or copy/paste the solution directly into their Optimizely account.
Because your solution gets its own landing page, sharing your Optimizely Labs solution is very simple via your solution’s unique link. Share it with prospects, customers or partners can help to spread the word about your solution.
