Which data sources can be integrated?

In principle, all data sources can be integrated into the Watch data process with a website or a data interface. In the case of data sources that have not yet been integrated, vcs checks the technical feasibility and which content can be integrated into the data process in advance.

Which requirements are necessary?

No other vcs services are required to use the watch service.

What is the pricing model like?

Building on a base price for the use of the watch service, the further price model depends on the desired scope: These are the number of products, the number of data sources and the data query cycle. Likewise, the extent of the integration into other vcs products such as Data or Invest.

How quickly can relevant products be changed?

Relevant products can be added or removed at any time.

Is it possible to further process data individually

All data generated on behalf of the customer can be made available for individual further processing or storage. Either via an export of the “All prices” report or via automated processes to be agreed.

Is there a price history?

All data is stored long-term in the vcs Channel data warehouse and can be used or exported at any time for long-term analyzes.

Which products can be integrated?

All desired products can be integrated into vcs Watch. Both your own and those of relevant competitors. The analyzes then run across all defined products.

Can you make adjustments to dashboards?

Yes, existing dashboards can be adapted in coordination with vcs. It is also possible to develop new dashboards for extended requirements.

Which use cases with other products are possible?

With the data and process-integrated model, basically all data can be combined with Watch. Be it sales, inventory or channel marketing activities. Examples are price elasticities, integration in visit preparation reports or for an annual meeting dashboard.

How often is data requested?

vcs Watch runs 7×24. This means that all data is continuously queried and analyzed depending on the selected service level. Regardless of vacation, illness or other priorities. This means that no changes are lost.

What is necessary to use Watch?

All you need is internet access.
