What led you to initially invest in Amperity?
Our lists just couldn’t keep up with how quickly customer information changed. For example, the Stevenson family had lived in Detroit their whole lives, but one year they moved to Bermuda! We hadn’t updated our lists, so I showed up at their house in Detroit with bags of gifts with no one to give them to, and the Stevensons didn’t receive any holiday joy. I NEVER want that to happen again!
How does Amperity fit into your current techstack?
I love the integration Amperity has with Snowflake. It's a very powerful combination, but I have to admit, I first chose it because the name is very on-brand for us. Oh, we've got lots of connections to all kinds of great tools. The Amperity team used to talk about piping data in and out, and when I had a hard time understanding, they put it in terms of chimneys instead. Very considerate!
What’s the coolest thing you’ve been able to do with data?
It used to take months to put lists together for our annual gifting extravaganza, but with Amperity we were able to compile those lists much faster, and we can access them in just seconds! That frees up time for the elves and I to focus on other things, like boosting the quality of our gifts. We recently developed a type of ball that works for football, basketball, and cricket!
What is your favorite feature or capability in Amperity and what do you use it for?
By far my favorite feature has got to be the ability to track in real-time when someone’s status changes from “Naughty” to “Nice.” I’m also quite fond of the householding capabilities because they’ve helped me plan my delivery routes much more efficiently. My Director of Transportation, Rudolph, is a real stickler for delivery accuracy, so he’s pretty pumped about this too.
Tell us about a hobby or something that you like to spend time doing outside of work.
I really enjoy watching MME (Mixed Martial Elf) fights, taking the reindeer down to see the penguins, and going eggnog tasting out in the tree farms with Mrs. K.
