Why Brand Alignment Is The Best Brand Management In The Industry For MAP Management.
If you are new to shopping for a brand protection provider, it might be confusing to tell the difference between companies. It might sound like everybody offers the same type of monitoring. This could not be further from the truth and not every company is going to offer you brand reputation.
One of the most important things you can look for in a monitoring software when selling on Amazon or any other reseller network, is frequency of crawling data. Due to the fast-changing nature of online marketplaces, the less often a marketplace is crawled, the slower you will know what is actually happening in real-time. Price monitoring cascading in particular requires hourly crawls in order to catch the authorized channels who violated MAP first. The less frequent the crawling, the more information that is missed. Which is why you need to protect your brand value and enforce your MAP.
Our Monitoring and Enforcement Process - Simple & Easy
First, we onboard all of your brand’s products into our database. During this process we match each ASIN or UPC with the correct marketplace URL and MAP price. This process can take 1-2 weeks depending on the amount of work involved for your brand management.
Next, we begin monitoring your listings 24/7/365 for preliminary data. This is the data we will use to get the first glance at your marketplace and product listing.
Thirdly, we identify and document any and all pricing policy violators. This will include all authorized and unauthorized sellers present on your product's listings
Finally, we provide access to a dashboard with all your brand's violation data. This dashboard is available 24/7, updates multiple times a day, and comes with unlimited users.

It Starts With An Authorized Channel Pricing Policy Violation

An easy way to think about the distinction between MSRP and MAP is that MSRP is an unofficial higher restriction for your pricing, whilst your MAP is an official lower limit. A MAP is intended at the retailer, whereas MSRP is aimed at the consumer.
Map monitoring and enforcement is the process of handling all interactions with retailers and dealing with policy violators as they occur for brands, manufacturers, and wholesalers.
MAP means minimum advertised pricing. The rise of ecommerce has heightened the already fierce competition in the consumer goods sector. Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) policies can help with this.
