The innovative tools CIQ offers will be a compelling addition to our rapidly expanding arsenal of MAP enforcement tactics.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
Industry innovator of cycling components Profile Design and cycling industry apparel stalwart Bellwether have teamed up with Channel IQ, the world’s leading provider of online retail business intelligence, brand protection, and channel management software applications, to affirm their Minimum Advertised Price Policy (MAP) across their online channels. This new collaboration will solidify Profile Design’s and Bellwether’s already established MAP policies, putting them at the forefront of pricing policy in the online marketplace.
Manufacturers like Profile Design & Bellwether who utilize Channel IQ’s tools gain insight into unauthorized discounting that goes against their pricing strategy. An effective solution that accurately enforces a retailer program protects a manufacturer’s products from damaged sales, and erosion of their brand. Channel IQ’s solutions will further establish Profile Design’s and Bellwether’s already secure MAP policies, advancing their solid position in the online marketplace.
"Profile Design and Bellwether are proud to have been one of the first cycling-specific companies to fully embrace this critical initiative,” says Tim Coppock, Global Sales & Marketing Director of Profile Design & Bellwether. “We remain actively committed to maintaining a robust and vigilant MAP Policy. The innovative tools CIQ offers will be a compelling addition to our rapidly expanding arsenal of MAP enforcement tactics."
“By partnering with Channel IQ, Profile Design is taking the next necessary step in fully supporting their online channel,” says Andy Walker, CEO of Channel IQ. “They are a prime example of a manufacturer who is proactively devoted to their authorized retailers and consumers.”
