Sameer Kamat, CEO of Filestack, commented: “To truly delight customers, content must be managed and curated. Unfettered and unmanaged access to content, especially user generated content, is a sure shot way for a brand to disengage their users. With Filestack’s machine learning powered content curation APIs powering the TINT platform, brands will be able to engage with their customers in a more authentic and richer way then ever before.”

Tim Sae Koo, founder and CEO of TINT, added: “The combination of TINT with Filestack is super exciting as both companies hyper focus on delivering curated content experiences for businesses and world class brands. TINT’s speciality is its user- generated content aggregation, curation, and delivery mechanisms, which are powered by Filestack’s Digital Content Platform.”

By marrying their respective strengths Filestack aspires to transform itself into an end-to-end digital content curation platform.
