Our mission is to help enterprise retailers make the right pricing decisions every time

Competera is a technology company that offers a comprehensive pricing platform to save costs, recover profits and meet new shopping patterns with the help of a sophisticated market-driven engine to ensure short- and mid-term growth and an algorithm-based engine for long-term growth.

From Business Intelligence To Operational Intelligence

Today’s retail is becoming increasingly complex. All the decisions made by retailers need to be profitable and fair from the point of view of the customer.

Every decision has to be right for every product, channel and location and aligned with the retailer’s current business strategy.

This is true for retail pricing, too. Retail pricing teams need co-piloting software to analyze all the necessary data and consider dozens of pricing and non-pricing factors to maintain the right prices for millions of products in the assortment at any given moment.

By augmenting the operational intelligence of retail teams with the right tools and tech, retailers gain an incremental margin by reaching category and portfolio goals with the help of optimal prices.
