As Seen On

Engage3 has helped our average units per transaction go up. Unlike price indexing, we don’t have to be locked in as a follower. Price image lets us offer compelling value while at the same time maintaining our margins, and that’s helped advance our business in our customers’ eyes.

The attention you guys have paid to the details of the data is exemplary and I can't say enough for it. That attention to detail (or lack thereof) was one of the reasons I left my previous provider. One thing that's always stood out to me is that you guys have never taken the attitude of 'that's about all we can do'. You all are always looking to improve, and it’s been fantastic.

Mark SempriniDirector of Pricing, C&S Wholesale Grocers

We needed better competitive intelligence. It’s critical to our business. Other companies just told us they could give us more data using the same methods. Engage3 is different. They showed us there was a smarter way to collect competitive data using data analytics and mobile technology.
