Price Track Service
Daily Price Tracking & Value Added Reporting
The Daily Price Tracking service is a tactical service designed to support decision makers with up to date, detailed online pricing information. Users can proactively monitor both their own and competitor pricing movements across all types of online retailers. The service covers multiple product categories and can be delivered daily.
Pricing information is collected daily directly from the main online websites and price comparison sites at model/title, retailer and country level, with direct links to the sites ensuring accuracy of the reports. Key price changes affecting the market are identified and highlighted, with personalised reporting and alerts sent to each company and each user. Key questions the data can answer:
- Which retailer is reducing the price first?
- Who has the lowest prices in my key accounts?
- How do my prices compare to my competitors?
- Are there any significant competitor price moves in my key accounts?
- What is the average price premium for certain specifications?
- How have the prices for certain specifications/models changed over the last 18 months?
- Do I (or my competitors) have out-of-stocks in my accounts? Which?
- What is my shelf space across key accounts?
- Are retailers altering their product mix, providing new ranging opportunities?
- Are my selective distribution agreements being respected?
- Are grey imports impacting my channel margins and pricing structure?
