When you are browsing 200,000 products across 30+ retailers it can be quite easy to lose that product you love. We understood this would be a big issue for users, to overcome this we created an intuitive drag and drop mechanic to make saving products simple!
Once a user has found the product they like, they can then place a Squish on the price. The app then stores this and will alert the user when the price reaches this level.
Bargain hungry shoppers get to set the price they are willing to pay. Retailers can review this data and provide customers with the products they want, at a price that works for them.
Retailers have the ability to view the prices set by the customers, this data is extremely useful for detecting trends, future pricing strategies and discount pricing.
The power in the Squished platform is from the data created by users. We created a custom CMS that allowes for deep mining of the data, everything from bids on an individual item, through to total category views and everything in between!
To keep the app up to date, we created a fully custom product scraping tool that checks the entire product database several times a day to check for price changes, new products or removed products.
