Case study: Pricing Watchtower for a Global Consumer Goods Company

About the Client

The client is a global Fortune 500 manufacturer of consumer and professional products with over $6 billion in annual revenue.

Business Context

The objective of the client was to track their pricing changes across retailers and competitors for different products on a weekly basis in all their geographies. The client also wanted a competitor price tracking and compliance accordingly. This would help them identify anomalies based on standard deviation spread across multiple products and geographies.

BRIDGEi2i Solution

BRIDGEi2i partnered with the client to develop a price monitoring and alerting solution to help track price and compliance

BRIDGEi2i’s data engineering team interpreted the data from IRI for the various KPIs by product and geography along with cost data across channels (such as retailers, e-commerce, distributors) and brands and Point of Sale (PoS) data by brands.

Our team of Data Scientists and AI Labs’ machine learning experts worked on deriving insights from various data points and then built Anomaly Detection Models (cluster analysis-based outlier detection, time series anomalies, local outliers & rule-based solutions). Various segmentation rules helped track competitor pricing for similar products across geographies on a weekly basis.

BRIDGEi2i’s AI experts deployed the Pricing Watch Tower solution with an integrated voice assistant that provides dashboards and real-time insights.
