Summer 2011 was the time when we acquired our very first client from this industry - meaning that we have accumulated significant experience on how this industry operates, whether we're speaking of large online stores (market leaders in their country) or small family businesses.
On the other hand, Price2Spy helps some large European brands (renowned strollers, car seats manufacturers) monitor their retailer pricing policies across many EU and non-EU countries.
As you can imagine, this industry has no firmly standardized part numbers (there are certain exceptions, for example, manufacturers are usually able to supply product EAN numbers), meaning that manual product matching has very few alternatives. Some of our clients do it themselves, while others hire the Price2Spy team for such tasks.
Price2Spy will enable you to easily dive into various aspects of your competitive landscape by many different segments (e.g. brands, categories, suppliers). Easily drill down to the product details at any time - price history chart will show the development of prices over time, so you will easily recognize important patterns in your competitors' pricing behavior (for example: who's setting price trends / who's following).
