Optimizely and Blend

Our decade-plus history of helping projects create valuable digital experiences through Optimizely (formerly Episerver).

Partners since 2008

Optimizely (formerly Episerver) has a mission to make it easy for customers to create effective digital experiences for their customers in any channel on any device. It's a reason they are consistently named leaders in Gartner's Magic Quadrant — one of just five in 2021 — and a Leader in The Forrester Wave™ for Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs), Q3 2021.

Blend has been working with Optimizely and Episerver since 2008, and was named North American Partner of the Year in 2009. Blend is a Gold Solution Partner with three Optimizely certified developers on staff: Optimizely MVP Bob DavidsonJohn Pavek, and Steph Uher.

Blend's work with Optimizely spans the entire scope of what you can do with a content management system:

  • Full-scope strategy-through-launch projects
  • Guidance and consulting for difficult installations
  • Migration into Optimizely from commercial and in-house content management systems
  • Strategy and design projects that understand how design works within Optimizely.

Our work with Optimizely.

Here are some of the projects we've built or supported using the Optimizely CMS.

From Design System to Final Launch

Icertis needed more than a new design — they needed a full design system, and they needed it built in a robust tool. Blend and Optimizely stepped up to help them out.

A Fast Turnaround from On-Premise to Cloud

A migration from on-premise to cloud infrastructure in just a few days helped keep Florida's emergency communication on board.

Partnering Toward a Fresh New Credit Union Design

Relationships matter, especially in the world of federal credit unions. Thankfully, partnerships are what we specialize in at Blend — and it was a partnership with SELCO that led to a fresh, beautiful new site.

A Development Collaboration Designed for Success

A partnership in coaching and co-development designed to bring a regional communications giant up to speed on Episerver.

A Seamless, No-Fuss Move to Episerver DXP

The benefits were apparent as we helped move a nationally renowned children's hospital to their new Episerver (now Optimizely) DXP environment.
