Office Supplies

More than in other industries, profitability in office supplies retailing depends on effective merchandising and -- most importantly -- optimal pricing. With the growing use of mobile devices and Cloud-based services, the office procurement environment is undergoing a transformation. In addition, increasing competition from general merchandise juggernauts, such as Walmart and Amazon, is eating into the volumes and margins of office supplies retailers.

The solution from Upstream Commerce is designed to help office supplies retailers meet these challenges by providing them with the means to stay a step ahead of the competition. Insight-rich, real-time competitive pricing and assortment intelligence ensures that you always offer the right products, through the right channels and at the right time and price.

Having worked with some of the largest office supplies retailers in the world, we designed our solution to handle the product matching and comparison challenges inherent in this category, such as private labeling (e.g., ink cartridges); handling different quantities for the same product; comparing promotions; and managing a wide variety of product categories -- from furniture to janitorial supplies.
Actionable insights through advanced reporting
Analyze your competitive landscape by virtually any type of segmentation (e.g., brands, product categories), including custom segments based on your individual needs, such as price ranges. Easily drill down to the product level at any time. Advanced reporting allows you to uncover historical pricing patterns and compare pricing tactics over the entire product lifetime.
Smarter product assortment
The growing size of product catalogs makes product selection a big challenge.
