Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 2, 2006 —-
Andale, Inc. (http://www.andale.com), one of the largest providers of listing tools and research services for sellers on eBay, today announced that it is offering a free open trial for its Research 2.0 service.
Andale Research 2.0 provides the most accurate and reliable “how to sell” recommendations for eBay sellers, ensuring that their items sell at the best price with the highest success rate. With innovative technology, Andale Research provides insight into eBay item sales with precision and accuracy unparalleled by any other research provider.
The Research 2.0 trial is open to everyone and does not require a login or email address and can be accessed at http://corp.andale.com/research. The “Dare to Compare” trial challenges users to compare their results between Andale and the vendor they may currently be using or considering.
“Andale Research 2.0 is a culmination of more than 2 years of innovation from our research team and will deliver the highest quality of e-commerce research. This open trial is an opportunity for anyone to use and experience research that is more reliable, accurate and faster” said Prashant Nedungadi, Andale’s Chief Technology Officer. “We will continue to invest heavily in the research technology and over the next few months will be integrating it into our other tools and providing Andale sellers a significant advantage over their competitors."
"We teach Andale in our college level classes at the Internet Business Education Institute. Andale Research has allowed our students and Internet Business clients to quickly zero in and get accurate results", said Tom Burke, a long time Andale Research user. “No one wants to have t-shirts included in their iPod research results, which is what we find without Andale’s technology. With much less time spent researching items and refining bad results, we have more time to list a higher volume of ads more effectively.”
Moving beyond pricing recommendations, Andale Research 2.0 provides the optimal day and time to list an item, recommends the type of auction or fixed price format, suggests marketing features, such as bold and gallery, advises the correct category in which to list, and displays trends graphically. Each recommendation shows the seller how to increase their success rate, or increase the final value of the item, and sellers can quickly toggle between these objectives.
