Our story

Our Story

At Motive, we believe that bringing the best search experience to your online store shouldn’t mean compromising on trust. We design beautiful, expressive Search and Discovery experiences that deliver relevant results but without tracking, spying or sharing customer data. Quite frankly, we don’t need to, we don’t think it’s right and we don’t think your customers do either.

We share this vision of privacy by design with our sister company Empathy.co and bring their world-class technology -developed over years working with enterprise clients- to the mass market. To make it available to everyone. So you get the best in class technology straight out-of-the-box in a simple, easy-to-use, plug-and-play solution. What’s not to like about that?

Time to change

A time for change

For years, companies have collected, shared and used customer data to build intelligence and extract value simply because they could. Now we need to question whether they should.

We’re entering a new moral digital age where companies understand the values of trust and privacy, and people are learning that they have a choice and can opt out of sharing their data.

For us, privacy isn’t just a nice thing to have, it’s a core value. Motive wants to champion and lead this change. To strive for a world that respects our individual humanity.

So, we’ve developed the first ethical Search and Discovery solution for stores to create more joyful and relevant shopping experiences that are not only GDPR-compliant but that restore customer trust. This in turn increases brand loyalty and return visits.

Today more than ever, consumers are choosing brands based on ethical considerations and are holding them to account.

Let’s do things differently!
