50 000 and more products - this is nothing unusual for mass retailers working with Price2Spy. With so many products on offer - such sites typically focus on many different product ranges - which makes the task of identifying relevant competitor sites even more difficult. Just to give a couple of examples
Due to the diverse nature of the products offered, it's pretty rare that EAN / MPN part numbers can be consistently used for product matching. On the other hand, due to the short product life-cycle, and the large number of products to be matched - most of our clients do product matching themselves (as they usually have in-house teams for such tasks). Such teams either enter product URLs in Price2Spy directly, or they supply us with Excel sheets containing matched URLs, which we load into their Price2Spy account.
Mass retail clients typically have different product managers taking care of different segments of their offer. In some cases, the work is split by product category (baby equipment, car parts, consumer electronics etc.), while in others it can be done by brand, or even by product supplier. No matter how your internal organisation works, Price2Spy's flexible setup can address it - so each product manager takes care (and gets alerted) only of the products from his domain.
As for your daily pricing operations, Price2Spy reports and dashboard will make your life easier by enabling you to quickly check various aspects of your competitive landscape by many different segments (e.g. brands, product categories). Drilling down to the product details can be done 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). Finally, many of our clients rely on price change alert emails as indication of important market movements.
