We engineer a new class of retail managers

Competera is a self-pricing platform for decision-making automation to transform every piece of change made with our platform into profit

We do not ask our customers to do something different, we ask them to become someone different, in terms of performance goals reached

Pricing, so far, is the most complex and poorly controlled process of modern retail:

4 hours

per day managers spend on pricing decision

3 different solutions

use managers for the right pricing decisions

only 10%

of managers achieve their KPI's

To make a dramatic shift in how pricing happens we developed the Competera Pricing Platform, configured by 3 powerful products:

Pricing Platform

The Self-Pricing Platform for retailers and vendors, for always right prices on the right products, to hit business goals with no fear of making an error

Combining Mathematics and Data Science, Competera creates a dramatic shift in how pricing happens

We take responsibility for the results and pricing decisions

We provide managers with 20 additional working hours per month

The Competera Pricing Platform is based on the principle of construction and can be easily configured for different types of business needs.

While engineering Competera, we were focused on how retail managers themselves would be changed after Platform integration.
