who we


D8a Driven was founded by former Amazon employees who managed the most complex businesses with Amazon’s largest suppliers.



A brand’s most valuable asset on Amazon is data. Accessing this data is insanely difficult because data is stored across hundreds of reports that most organizations just do not know exist or know how to access. Even worse, all the reports are siloed and in different locations.  Brands are always at a disadvantage when it comes to Amazon, because they just aren’t able to access their data as easily as Amazon can. 



D8a Driven helps brands automate their business on Amazon using data and deep machine learning.
