About Amaze Software, Inc. (Amaze)
At Amaze Software, Inc. our mission is to empower anyone to create a beautiful shopping experience. We combined marketing and design software to create some of the most innovative technology on the market that can be integrated anywhere. In the future, our designs will power commerce on every platform in the world. If you can imagine it, Amaze will help you create it and share it with the world. One idea turned into a beautiful design at a time.

Amaze, formerly known as Famous, was launched in 2011 as a Creative Studio. We quickly realized that the low-or no-code technology needed for easy online design was not readily available to the public. After many years of working with some of the world's best brands in the world, we launched Famous Pro to meet this need in 2018. Since then our mission has been to help businesses of all sizes create beautiful content that powers shopping experiences. Recently we have focused on more tools that allow for seamless integration of our platform into every domain in the world.

Amaze is a mobile ecommerce marketing platform that empowers merchants to captivate their customers through immersive, high impact, mobile shopping experiences. We make it easy to quickly create and customize selling experiences with little to no technical expertise required. We believe that the future of ecommerce is mobile, and we strive to give brands the ability to target their unique audiences, cultivate a deeper connection with their customers and sell their products in the best way possible.
