SoQuero responds fast to latest ruling of German Federal Court of Justice (BGH)

  • Price search engines must show right price information
  • SoQuero introduces price watch functionality
  • Minimizing risks of price increase

Frankfurt am Main, April 7, 2010 – SoQuero GmbH, a subsidiary of Intershop Communications AG, is extending its feed technology. Although price search engines have long been an established part of online marketing strategy, they present sellers with a major challenge: how can the data, particularly the price information displayed, be kept up-to-date? The SoQuero feed technology provides valuable support here with regard to the distribution and optimization of products and the resulting revenues.

Hot on the heels of the recent BGH decision, SoQuero GmbH is adding price watch functionality to its feed engine, enabling online retailers to identify and correct price inaccuracies immediately. If required, SoQuero can provide troubleshooting support and deactivate products displaying incorrect information. In addition, the built-in product content management system allows product information to be modified regardless of the product’s status in the actual store. Sellers can thus act ahead of planned product changes and inform price search engines in advance. Kai Wolfram, CEO of SoQuero GmbH states: „Using the SoQuero technology our customers get a head start in comparison to users of other feed engines and minimize the risk of receiving an cease and desist letter.”
