PriceSpider is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor in Consumer Good Manufacturing, 2015”, in its report published April, 2015. An online retail analytics and intelligence provider for consumer product manufacturers that sell through multichannel retailers, PriceSpider is “cool” because it provides brand manufacturers customized "where to buy" solutions that deliver accurate, real-time data using its proprietary spidering technology.
“As consumer goods manufacturers face a slow-growth global economy for the foreseeable future, they will continue to focus on the basics that will improve their position versus the competition.” according to the Gartner report authors. “These Cool Vendors share a set of innovative approaches that support this path to digitalization and can bring more value to consumer goods companies. They demonstrate knowledge of the consumer goods space, have embedded that knowledge into their applications and seek to offer.”
“PriceSpider is delivering a tailored Where-to-Buy solution for leading global brands such as Acer, Canon, LG, Nikon, Samsung and VIZIO, so that consumers will have the ultimate shopping experience. We believe being named a Gartner Cool Vendor validates our approach and uniqueness,” said Anthony Ferry, CEO of PriceSpider.
First launched as a consumer shopping engine, PriceSpider soon discovered its proprietary technology was ideally suited for providing highly accurate and timely data to consumer electronics manufacturers, and it wasn't long before PriceSpider was powering the Where-to-Buy engines for 10 of the world's top consumer electronics brands. PriceSpider has now grown well beyond its consumer electronics roots to provide data/solutions across a growing list of global industries including tools, major appliances, toys, and CPG products.
The Gartner report authors also offered this recommendation: “Consider PriceSpider for intelligence that can manage and enhance your e-commerce presence and drive quantifiable sales results for your retailers.”
