How price intelligent software works?

Pricing intelligence software is a practical tool used by retailers while implementing their competitive pricing strategy. It is essential for businesses to know how retail price intelligence works, because, otherwise, companies would not be able to reveal the full potential of the tools they use.

Put it simply, the work of competitive price intelligence software can be divided into several major phases. First, the parameters are set and adjusted. Then, the data collection is done by the software algorithms. After that, the collected database is checked. Once the data is ready and checked, it is processed by the algorithm to provide businesses with the ready-to-use functional insights and analytics. Eventually, the pricing intelligence is actually built on these insights and analytics.

However, when speaking of advanced competitors pricing intelligence, the capabilities of a tool might not be limited to a generation of data-based analytics and insights. Often, the top-notch competitive price intelligence tools, like Competera is capable of an automated integration of the analytical insights into the actual pricing policy of a business. For example, using a cascade of customizable pricing rules, a manager can set up automatic price adjustment based on the market trends or changes identified. Here is how it works: if a pricing rule implies that a price for a product A should be always 5% lower than the highest price by competitors 1, 2, and 3, the tool would automatically suggest the new price once the market intelligence is updated.

Depending on the configuration of price intelligence tools chosen by the business, the data collection, functions list, or analysis workflow might differ. Typical elements of a price intelligence system include the scrapping of competitive data, full crawls collection, product matches, quality control assurance and other elements and processes. The last-gen price intelligence solutions are flexible enough to provide business with an ability to customize the functionality and settings of data collection and analysis.
