October 2022 - 15Five releases

Emplify is now officially Engage, part of the 15five family!

We know, it’s been a long time coming. While we were focusing on incorporating the Emplify product and DNA into our overall platform and organization, we let some branding updates temporarily take a back seat. We’re excited to announce that this work is complete, and Emplify is now officially Engage!

A few specific things to note:

  • Our favicon and product iconography has been updated to 15five
  • "Emplify Score" is now called "Engagement Score"
  • The product will now be referred to as Engage, rather than Emplify
  • The application URL will be updated to engage.15five.com over the weekend of Oct 29-30
    We suggest updating your bookmarks, although we have redirects in place!
  • Starting on Oct 31, survey takers will be directed to surveys.15five.com
  • All email messages are now being sent from the 15five.com domain, and their branding has been updated to reflect that of 15five
  • The Emplify Help Center will be retired shortly. All articles and links have already been consolidated within the 15Five Help Center
