The Connotate solution is capable of scaling up to support much larger deployments as well, as customers may choose either hosted or on-premise options to meet their specific needs. Sample use cases include the following:
- Sigma-Aldrich, a global provider of biochemicals, monitors competitors’ prices on 187,000 products – accomplishing this task twice as fast using Connotate instead of web scraping tools
- A specialized e-tailer uses Connotate to monitor competitor’s pricing on 1 million items each day, adjusting prices in near-real time to effectively compete against the largest online retailers in the world
- A national parts dealer obtains competitive intelligence at the local and national levels on millions of products regularly, using Connotate to support its dynamic pricing strategy
Connotate’s client list also includes Shopzilla, which uses Connotate to continually update content from thousands of sites to showcase millions of products across its portfolio of online shopping brands including Bizrate, Beso, Shopzilla, PrixMoinsCher, and SparDeinGeld.
