The Story Behind Our Story
It all started from a Google t-shirt.
In 2009, Google had just released the Google Analytics API. A Googler posted a contest in an online forum, the 1st person who managed to connect the API to Excel would win a Google t-shirt. Pretty exciting, huh? At least that’s what our founder Mikael felt 🙂 And he really, really wanted that t-shirt.
Working as a web analyst back then, Mikael frequently needed to use Google Analytics data in Excel. So he had to constantly import CSV files or manually copy/paste the data.
To solve his own pain point, and more importantly to win the glorious prize of a Google t-shirt, Mikael decided to give it a try, despite zero experience in programming.
Working throughout the night and in coffee shops, Mikael finally solved the problem and replied to the Googler, and won the t-shirt. Woo hoo!
Soon Mikael realized he wasn’t alone. It’s a shared pain for millions of web analysts and marketers. It’s a pain not only for Google Analytics users but for users of thousands of other marketing technologies. And he wanted to help.
It was time to save marketers from the boring, counterproductive and inhumane ways of manually moving data. Time to empower them to focus their time and energy on what matters. Time to give them peace of mind.
Today, we call the solution – Supermetrics.
P.S. Mikael still has the t-shirt. It’s in a vault, heavily guarded by massive dogs and electronic security… just in case you were wondering.
Supermetrics’ mission is to help marketers better report, monitor and analyze their data by connecting the marketing platforms to wherever they want to use the data.
