PeopleVine's Unparalleled Platform Provides Companies with a Single Solution

Fully Integrated Content Management System Bridges Gap Between Marketer and Consumer for 100 Companies and Counting


CHICAGO, IL - Chicago natives Chris Lindsey and Jordan Gilman have streamlined the consumer (member, fan, audience) experience by severing the need to use multiple software platforms with the introduction of PeopleVine. This all-in-one marketing platform is a one-stop-shop to engage and communicate with consumers for brands that range from startups like My Fan Cave and Ollabout to fully established brands including Chick-fil-A, Chicago's own 1871, Live Nation, Zipcar and more.


PeopleVine's revolutionary platform fuels both small and large-scale businesses covering everything from communication to consumer engagement. Their system allows brands to engage and build sustainable relationships throughout the entirety of a brand-consumer relationship from start to finish. PeopleVine's array of clients in 15 different industries show the diversity and flexibility of its system. From national brands such as Chik-fil-A and Zipcar to more localized organizations including Chicago-based 1871, the intricate yet simple process is trusted in rapidly expanding customer databases. 


Located in the heart of Chicago, one of the world's fastest growing hubs for entrepreneurs and startups in the tech space, 1871 depends on PeopleVine's all-in-one marketing platform to seamlessly handle their member experience. 1871 members and community now have a central place for interacting with 1871 including room reservations, office hours, workshop registration and more. PeopleVine was founded in 2014 by Jordan Gilman who sought to create ease in a tech world filled with complications. "I saw so many businesses using multiple platforms to communicate with their customer base and try to serve multiple needs," said Gilman. "I was determined to create simplicity for end user and provide a way to do everything in one place."

Gilman is the President and Chief Software Architect of PeopleVine, a platform that he originally founded. He brings over 20 years of experience as a software architect and programmer where seven of those years were spent at Whirlpool Corporation in a variety of capacities; most recently as the Principal Design Lead for rolling out Whirlpool's eCommerce strategy throughout the globe.

He holds a Bachelor of Science from Indiana University focusing on Information Systems and Computer Science.
