Stackpile is a tool that allows you to install 3rd party apps, tools and integrations on your website with one click.
With Stackpile you can install any of our supported integrations with one click. Allowing you to quickly try out new ones without having to redeploy or update the code on your website.
A Stack is a way of combining all the 3rd party apps and integrations you install on your website into one convenient container. Each Stack has a unique code snippet that needs to be installed on your site to enable you to install apps and integrations. Normally you would create 1 Stack per website. For example, you could create a My Awesome Site Stack for your http://myawesome.com domain.
Stackpile supports a lot more integrations than Google Tag Manager does and we offer a Unified Analytics API that allows you to send event and user information to all your integrations.
Segment is an amazing service that we've personally used on lots of projects before. Unfortunately when used on small or high traffic websites the cost of using Segment can quickly become very high. This is why Stackpile was created, to offer a simple, robust and more cost effective solution for managing your 3rd party integrations and analytics data.

Yes, once you've installed Stackpile, and enabled your integrations via your Dashboard, you can remove the integrations on your website.
We use a very popular global CDN to ensure our snippet is cached and loaded in the shortest time available. We also ensure that all 3rd party scripts installed via Stackpile are loaded asynchronously. In fact, you might find some of the integrations loads faster via Stackpile.
With Stackpile you can send custom events to all your integrations using our Unified Analytics API.
With our Unified Analytics API you can also identify your users on all your installed integrations.
