A Market Intelligence platform is essential for every business operating in highly dynamic and competitive sectors, such as apparel, beauty, electronics, etc. Finding a good tool that actually works for your entire product range and is able to monitor all aspects of the entire market, without heavy investment in maintenance, is not an easy task.

The good news is that nearly 81% of them believe that implementing a comprehensive digital strategy is vital to their survival over the next few years. 55% of them are already actively investing in intelligent, innovative technologies and reporting that Digital is 1 of their top 3 growing sectors in their business.

  1. Does it cover all my competitors?
  2. Does it cover my entire current and future catalog - apparel, electronics, shoes, beauty?
  3. Does it monitor and analyze in real-time?
  4. How long will it take to set-up and what are the IT resources needed?
  5. Will I need to manually specify the competitors or products every time a new product is added to the catalog?
  6. For multinational companies - does it support multiple languages and currencies?
  7. Does it support multiple package sizes?
