SpotLite Overview

What is SpotLite?

SpotLite is a cloud-based price tracking solution which enables retailers and brands of any industry, size, and location to track prices and promotions of online retailers, eBay sellers, and Amazon stores. SpotLite’s price tracking platform helps users monitor prices in real time, track competitor pricing, make smart pricing decisions, identify market opportunities, and more. Hourly pricing updates help users make informed pricing decisions and stay ahead of their competitors.

SpotLite provides users with pricing intelligence tools, including real-time alerts and reports, variant price monitoring and historic promotion tracking, in addition to multi-user access and bulk import functionality. Real-time alerts inform users on price changes immediately, while real-time reports give users a quick breakdown of price changes. Users can schedule reports for specific times and dates, or simply choose to receive daily or weekly summary reports.

Variant price monitoring allows users to track pricing based on size, color, or quantity, while historic promotion tracking provides users with insight into price changes via a product’s promotion history. SpotLite also supports price tracking behind logins, so users can track product pricing even if login details are required to access product information. Bulk import technology allows users to import data for multiple categories, products and product page URLs, while multi-user access, with different roles and permissions, ensures users can only access information relevant to them.

Great tool that is easy to get up and running quickly

Pricing data across a number of products and websites. This saves us 20-30 hours a month of work, and gives us a better resolution of data than we were willing to collect manually (4 times daily updates versus manual once a day checks).

The information will help us better understand pricing across different channels.

Ability to hold teams to account on their pricing where the retailer does not report into our existing data collection sets

Pros

SpotLite has great visibility in promotion and pricing tracking. I use it with different clients.This used to be a manual process and now I get a centralised view with updates every hour.

Promotion tracking is perfect to tap into competitors promo calendars and the frequent updates help us react quickly to competitor price changes and tactics.

Cons

My only request for future iterations would be to have APIs available to integrate it with our own internal systems.

The information will help us better understand pricing across different channels.

Pros

Spotlite is easy to setup. The reporting is easy to use, with the option to export data allowing us to visualise the information in different ways.

There are more comprehensive solutions out there, but they typically require a lot more effort (consulting) to get up and running.

If you want to start getting back pricing data quickly, this is a good product

Cons

There is no API available yet. An API would allows us to pull the data into our own reporting systems automatically (rather than rely on downloading CSV's, and uploading them to our own systems. I understand an API is on the way.

Ability to hold teams to account on their pricing where the retailer does not report into our existing data collection sets

Pros

Easy to use and once set up provides good content. If it were able to be expanded and collect the required amount of data sets and also set up so that links dont break it would be brilliant

Cons

It becomes quite cumbersome to keep on top of web pages that are constantly changing. Also one license is limited in its ability to extract the level of products and customers that are required.

Response from SpotLite

Hi Brendan,
Thank you for providing feedback about your experience with SpotLite. We¿d like to address the cons as to give more clarity on the issues perceived. Our subscription plans outline a certain amount of products and competitors that can be tracked per product. The plan you¿re currently on does have a limitation of up to 10 competitors per product, however the Business and Enterprise plans don¿t. Users can track unlimited competitors across various markets, including eBay and Amazon. It¿s quite easy to upgrade, it can be done from your ¿Account Settings¿ within SpotLite.
We also provide managed services such as maintenance, which includes maintenance of current products being tracked as well as addition of new products. We currently do maintenance for quite a few customers, including customers in the US, AU & Europe, and I¿d be more than happy to discuss details with you, should you be interested.
Please do let us know if there¿s anything else we can help with.
Thank you!

Pros

Saves hours in monitoring competitors using google or visiting their sites everyday, Easy to use and even easier to communicate with! Spotlite's Customer service truly is 10 out of 10!

Cons

one it few flaws is that it has to be programmed sku by sku, site by site. It is unable to simply find a product by sku/upc listed within a site or google.

It helped improve the channel management.

Pros

The dashboard is reliable, helpful and impressive with valuable trackability outputs that helps improve the channel sales management but also the pricing strategy.

Cons

Monitoring minor players is the area for improvement. There are a few other e-tailers in the region which the sofware could not monitor. Perhaps an indepth dialogue with the client may help the developer to look into these small guys.
