Sporting Goods

When it comes to pricing and assortment, sporting goods retailers operate in a world of great complexity. Drivers of this complexity include vast product diversity (from apparel to tennis balls); large numbers of product variations (based on size, weight, color, performance and other attributes); non-standard approaches to describing and displaying products in online catalogs; and products in certain categories described through myriad technical specifications (golf clubs, compound bows). In addition, extreme product seasonality, along with periods of fast turnover, add to the complexity.

Retail intelligence, based on accurately matched products, and delivered on a real-time basis, ensures that you always offer the right products, through the right channels and at the right time and price.
