Namogoo CEO Chemi Katz: Malware Can Ruin the Customer Journey


“The customer journey is the journey that e-commerce customers go on when they come to a site, and hopefully it ends with buying a product,” said Chemi Katz, CEO of Namogoo. “Hijacking interferes with the customer’s journey. It can be a pop-up that the company didn’t put there, or something that will lead a customer out of the website. It’s any interference that doesn’t come from the e-commerce business itself, but from a third party that does it for malicious reasons and to make money. It’s important to prevent it.”

CPQ's Other Life


Configure, Price, Quote systems have a name problem. When they debuted, their basic functions gave a name to the category that was self-explanatory, and it fit well. As with any good idea in technology, however, frequent use brought with it demand for more functionality that quickly outstripped the technology’s charter — a happy problem. Today’s CPQ does all that its title initials claim as table stakes, and its new value is in making better use of time for sales reps and literally the whole organization.
