Challenge

THE CHALLENGE

At the time that Somproduct approached us, they wanted to build an application which allowed them to automate the product price update, which was done manually using various spreadsheet applications and calculations.

With over 60,000 products on the platform, the process of maintaining the price competitiveness was time consuming and error prone. Employees were manually tracking and updating prices, which turned out to be unproductive, especially with the company’s constant growth.

Their goal was to have a single tool which would continuously run checks to automatically update the costs, prices, and special offers based on personalized criteria.

OUR SOLUTION

We built a dynamic pricing web-based application that runs tasks automatically to achieve client's pricing automation objectives. The solution had to be efficiently integrated and synchronized with the Magento inventory.

Solution

Assuring price competitiveness for over 60.000 products

Firstly, the application performs the crucial task of customizing the product prices that the visitor sees on the online platform - somproduct.ro. This is based on defined algorithms and specific criteria that the manager creates for setting up the price. It also enables customization of special offers and temporary pricing, while maintaining the minimum desired margin.

Secondly, the tool runs periodic searches throughout the day to find the product costs and competitors’ prices, and adapts our client’s prices accordingly.

By being hosted in the cloud service like Microsoft Azure it ensures quickness, accessibility, and high availability to its users.

Key features and benefits
