Elevating Retail Intelligence: How Datacenter Proxies Empowered a Software Leader

CommerceIQ, a long-time partner, is a pioneer in using data to deliver powerful retail intelligence. As a leading provider of commerce execution software, CommerceIQ enables major retailers and brands to turn raw data into strategic insights through its SaaS platform.

With customers relying on CommerceIQ for continuous updates on market trends, inventory, pricing, and more, access to fresh retail data is essential. This presented complex data extraction challenges requiring specialized proxies. Here‘s how our datacenter proxies became the foundation empowering CommerceIQ‘s retail intelligence workflows.

The Critical Role of Retail Data

The retail industry runs on data. From optimizing supply chains to monitoring competitors, data insights drive strategic decisions. Market projections don‘t lie – the retail intelligence space is booming. With the global market expected to reach $4.5 billion by 2027, demand for data and analytics continues rising.

For over 15 years, CommerceIQ has helped define what‘s possible with retail intelligence. Its digital shelf analytics, market share tracking, pricing intelligence and other innovations reveal what‘s really happening across the retail universe.

CommerceIQ‘s cloud-based platform consolidates data from numerous sources into a single source of truth. The company‘s pedigree is unmatched – its solutions are used by 25 of the top 50 retailers worldwide.

The Challenges of Large-Scale Data Collection

To build such a robust intelligence platform requires ingesting vast amounts of data from thousands of sources non-stop. CommerceIQ extracts data multiple times daily across over 5,000 retailer domains globally. We‘re talking terabytes of data flowing at immense velocity and variety.

Most organizations simply aren‘t equipped for data extraction at this scale. Just some of the challenges include:

  • Coverage gaps – Lacking adequate global proxy IPs causes blind spots.
  • Network failures – Unreliable proxies lead to data loss and downtime.
  • Speed barriers – Slow proxies bottleneck workflows.
  • Cost overruns – Inefficient proxies waste budget.
  • Analysis lags – Delays in data access inhibit quick insights.

For CommerceIQ, gaps in data collection were not an option. Their customers know that if something is happening in retail, CommerceIQ will have the data and perspectives. Maintaining this expectation required specialized proxies.
