With the evolution of eCommerce, SKU ranges have expanded along with the number of competitors. Merchandising managers can no longer rely on a well-planned pricing strategy and promotional calendar. They need to be able to respond as rapidly as pricing can now be changed. But how can you respond if you aren’t even aware that your competitors have launched a new promotion or changed their prices in the first place?
