Profitero is delighted to announce that our entry with Ocado “Ocado with Profitero, Low Price Promise” has been shortlisted for Customer Insight Project Of The Year in the BT Retail Week Technology Awards 2014.

Retailing is all about data, and the BT Retail Week Award for Customer Insight Project Of The Year seeks to recognise the best uses of data and analytics in the industry.

Profitero is thrilled that our submission with Ocado has been shortlisted for its ‘clever use of pricing data.’ Here’s why.

Ocado’s Low Price Promise makes it easier for customers to compare grocery prices without the need to price check other websites. After an order is placed, Ocado automatically compares the basket price of these products with what the shopper would have paid for an equivalent order at Tesco. If Ocado is not shown to be cheaper, a voucher is sent to the customer for more than the difference, up to £10.

The biggest challenge for Ocado in launching this initiative was to match equivalent own-label products. After reviewing other price intelligence solutions, Profitero was selected to partner with Ocado as we were proven to offer the highest degree of accuracy in matching, specifically amongst own-brand items.

Ocado’s Low Price Promise, launched in 2012, has been key to Ocado’s growth strategy of improving customer confidence in pricing. The initiative provides Ocado customers with the immediate assurance that they have secured the best price for their online grocery shop, and has helped Ocado attract more customers than ever before and achieve double digit sales growth.
