MissionControl: Proven Results
Engage3’s mission is to engage with and connect the three pillars of retail: manufacturers, retailers, and consumers. The era of price transparency and mobile technology has afforded us an opportunity to enact positive change and create the foundation for the future of retail. We are doing this by having developed the technology platforms, algorithms, and best practices to challenge the way that retail has operated for over 40 years. Specifically, we offer products and services to modernize and optimize these critical components of the retail cycle:
- Manufacturers’ and retailers’ competitive visibility and intelligence programs through price checks (utilizing data from online, in-store, and via our call center), our MissionControl Competitive Intelligence platform (synced with our product database of over 8 million UPC’s and 10 billion price updates per year), and prescriptive analytics.
- Manufacturers’ and retailers’ price image and brand management through our consulting services (our history of price audits, price optimization, and retail technology dates back over 40 years).
- Manufacturers’ trade spending and promotions through our Vantage Offer Optimization platform, the first platform in the history of retail to create truly personalized one-to-one offers for consumers and effectively solve the longstanding issue of over $100 billion of dollars wasted on ineffective trade funds every year for manufacturers.
- Consumers’ cost-savings and loyalty through personalization and one-to-one offers.
Engage3’s distributed call center collects data from the more protective stores (typically in Canada) including pharmacy, auto parts/services, and pet care. Each of our callers averages around 16 prices per hour and we are extremely proud of our ability to manage and circumvent the challenges of collecting prices from extremely protective shops. Our call center was established in 2002 and has never missed a deadline in over 14 years of collecting data.
We collect competitive data every month across the entire U.S. and Canada. Our auditor base has been in place for over 40 years and continues to grow to this day, and we take great pride in our ability to tap into any market that our partners might need.
Competitive price checks are viewed in many circles as the Achilles heel of the retail industry. In the past, retailers would invest huge amounts of time and money into collecting their competitors’ pricing and promotional information, only to find that the data they were receiving was inaccurate and untimely. Because of this, retailers are more often than not ‘flying blind’ to their competition because they are not able to react fast enough or to predict the key strategies of the competition on any level. Our solutions are changing the game in retail. With MissionControl at our disposal, we have the ability to streamline the data-collection process and ensure a standard of speed and accuracy that’s never been available to retailers. And with this new standard of data quality, we are able to focus our efforts into using data science to drive real value to a retailer’s bottom line. Ultimately, our passion is the data science aspect and finding ways to increase our partners’ return on investments.
While we are not at liberty to disclose this information, please see our testimonials section for just a few of the many clients and partners that we’re honored to work with. Our clients range from national chains to small independents.
Engage3 is more than just a data provider. Deep domain expertise, technological advancements, and a team of the brightest data scientists around have shaped us into the industry’s most unique advocates for innovation in retail.
