We understand the challenges you’re facing: increased consumer expectations, limited budgets and complex data integrations. That’s why we’re frequently updating our e-commerce platform.

SIM Supply Increases GMV 20% Week Over Week
After branching into e-commerce nine years ago, SIM Supply successfully maintained a competitive position on Amazon using ChannelAdvisor’s Algorithmic Repricer for Amazon. However, it also needed to set the same price across all of its retail channels to stay in compliance with price parity requirements. Using ChannelAdvisor’s Price Manager, SIM Supply:
- Set a consistent multi-site price on its products
- Used the lowest repricer-generated price
- Achieved its repricing goals on multiple marketplaces
SIM Supply soon saw a 20.8% increase in gross merchandise value (GMV) week over week and now worries less about the consequences of breaking price parity requirements. Learn more in this quick video.

Did You Know?
Everywhere you turn, someone is preaching the importance of data in improving the customer experience. But many brands and retailers still lack the tools necessary to harness important customer data and put it to good use. As a result, investment in the tools needed to access or act on audience data is on the rise. According to eMarketer, four out of five US companies planned to increase spend on audience data and related data activation solutions this year.
Are you investing in data? Do you have a data-driven plan for improving your customer’s experience with your brand?
