We pride ourselves on being a values-driven organization, but what does that mean in practice? In the previous installment of our Life at Orium series, we introduced our four foundational elements. Today we’re taking our first deep dive into one pillar and looking at what we mean when we say we’re “values-driven”. Lindsey Colquhoun, Orium’s VP of Culture (and one of the driving forces behind a refresh of our values three years ago), and Raj Kawa, Orium’s Senior Manager of Talent and Culture, shared their views on what it means for an org to be values driven, how Orium holds true to our values ..read more

Our foundational elements Hey, I’m Adam, and I’m the Content Writer at Orium! I’ve been here since November 2022, and I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside some incredible people. When I first started, I admittedly had a hard time understanding exactly what we do. I knew we worked with leading brands to help them build commerce tech solutions, but I didn’t know what that entailed. And if you’ve ever come across our LinkedIn page, chances are that you might not know either. The long answer is: We’re a professional services firm and certified B Corp specializing in complex commerce ex ..read more

Photo by Kevin Bhagat on UnsplashAutomation and AI are big topics of discussion as we move out of the pandemic and back to offices. What does it mean for the future of working? The idea that autonomous systems will replace livelihoods has become an almost inescapable part of the discussion around artificial intelligence (AI) applications. Since at least the 1970s, people have worried that technology will replace humans, leaving untold numbers without livelihoods. This is, in part, because when the inner workings of a technology are obscured. When the inputs and outputs that go into a ..read more

Photo by Brooke Cagle on UnsplashHow data can help you modernize your personalization strategy Personalization’s Fall from Grace In the world of retail, modern brands often respond to mention of “personalization” with scorn, derision, or skepticism — and for good reason. With the growth of omniretail and advances in technology, targeting customers using traditional personalization techniques doesn’t cut it anymore. Customers expect more than promotions with their name on it or product recommendations based on single data points, like geographic location. So what does personalization ..read more

A Myplaneteer sits in an open meeting space with a laptop, laughing and smiling with colleagues. Our company has grown. We’ve changed, the work has changed, and the world has changed too. And through all of this change, our identity as a community has shifted. Last year we realized that our values, which serve as both a reflection of who we are and as a guide for how we want to be, needed to be reviewed and refreshed in light of the ongoing evolution of our organization. Our existing company values had served us well for the first 10+ years of our journey, and looking back at the role they pla ..read more

Developers are always in high demand, but finding the right candidate for the right job is a complicated business. Employers need to assess hard skills, but there are more intangible factors to consider as well. Will this person thrive in our environment? Will they be able to adapt well to our work style? And it goes in the other direction as well— candidates have to assess if an organization is the ri ..read more

Forging A New Paradigm Together: Orium and the MACH Alliance

by Orium
1y ago
Orium’s focus on composable commerce is rooted in the same principles championed by the MACH Alliance. Competition and differentiation: the twin forces compelling retail brands to choose one tech provider over another. Historically, however, there has been little guarantee of interoperability or freedom to tailor a platform to your unique needs, nor could you confidently say that your choice of platform would continue to support your needs as you scale your brand. It’s tough to differentiate when everything is compelled to be built in identical ways. The good news is, there are new forces on t ..read more

Photo by Jason Goodman on Unsplash In the agency world, design teams try their best to be human-centric and inclusive by checking their biases and diversifying their team makeup. As part of the design process, they also work to understand user attitudes and behaviors, as well as test and iterate to challenge assumptions. To support this research, insights from large-scale data can reveal the varied expectations consumers have across all their touchpoints with brands. But understanding the full range of user scenarios is only one part of delivering human-centricity through the design  ..read more

Omnichannel experience #fails

Photo by Blake Wisz on UnsplashData-informed Moments It’s risky to design a product page for a digital retail site without considering how a user arrives there, or what action you want them to perform next. You might get lucky if you address each component in isolation, but there’s a good chance you’ll miss opportunities otherwise revealed by examining context. Creating omnichannel experiences without understanding the most critical moments of consumer interaction with a brand — who they apply to, how they impact each other, which channels and touchpoints are involved — is not much differ ..read more
