Competera helps WiggleCRC Group to increase market coverage, reduce pricing effort by 50% and handle more complex pricing rules and logic across five regions
WiggleCRC Group is a leading UK-based online sports retailer selling cycle, run, swim and outdoor equipment and apparel with reported £400 million ($500 million) in annual revenue operating worldwide.

Solution for transparent and coherent prices across five regions and currencies
Repricing gets simpler and easier
Transparent pricing decisions for every SKU for different teams
The retailer has also been using the following benefits of Competera Pricing Platform
Project execution and ongoing customer support
Competera has supported the implementation of the solution with a dedicated project management approach, which included co-developing a clear and transparent step-by-step plan for both sides, tracking the progress and managing expectations of the retailer’s leadership team. Competera’s customer support team has been reacting to the retailer’s requests within minutes.
Currency-agnostic price management
As the retailer operates across many countries with different currencies — from British pounds to Japanese yen, — it was essential for the company to have a solution that would allow timely repricing regardless of the region or currency in a single dashboard. Competera has used a built-in currency converter to serve this need.
A single workstation and database
The retailer’s teams no longer need to switch between several systems and programs to make the right pricing decisions. Competera has customized the product interface to include all the necessary information (stock levels, cost, local and foreign currency, etc) for a well-informed pricing decision.
The process took less than a month without involving the IT teams on the retailer’s side. Competera started with manual data uploads switching to automation when possible.
Competera makes our pricing process more transparent and coherent. Previously it was hard to see how rules worked, but now the logic is transparent, and we can collaborate with other teams, like buyers and merchandisers, who also use the system. Today, a total of 80 professionals are benefitting from the platform.
The bottom line
Since starting to use Competera’s pricing software, WiggleCRC Group has managed to increase market coverage, streamline workflow, reduce pricing effort by 50% and handle more complex pricing rules and logic across five regions.
