Let's break some of them down:
Digital Shelf Analytics
Share of Voice
Let's imagine you had a tool to real-time analyze your brand awareness on every supermarket shelf. Well, this is it.
A complete share of search analytics dashboard including your:
- organic products % of share
- and your Sponsored Products, Sponsored Brands and Display share
Of course, you can set up your competitors to compare their metrics and also add the organic and paid keywords so you can filter the data for every keyword.
As much as we love reselling (I'm an Amazon Reseller myself), sometimes third-party sellers can hurt a brand's reputation and profits by offering low quality products, low prices, and even expired products, especially when it comes to big brands with a lot of resellers using retail arbitrage (Walmart clearances, for example) or online arbitrage.
CommerceIQ helps brands take control by managing their product listings and branding.
Its AI system continuously audits your listings to detect third-party infringements, such as changes to content or the addition of new variants, and takes automated action to improve conversion rates and sales. The platform also offers 3P variant removal, which identifies and removes third-party variants from first party product detail pages, and duplicate listing management to remove listings created by third parties with inconsistent pricing and content.
Of course, there is some manual work you have to do, such as contacting Amazon Brand Registry, claim IP's violations or enroll in the Amazon Transparency and / or Project Zero's programs, but CommerceIQ will do the hard / manual work for you.
Maintaining consistent and up-to-date content on ecommerce platforms can be a challenge, especially for businesses with a large number of SKUs. CommerceIQ's content auditor continuously monitors product pages and compares them to a “single source of truth” for content and variation strategy.
It automatically submits tickets to make changes to unauthorized content and tracks variation changes to maintain the integrity of the pages. The platform also offers SKU-level analysis, which identifies potential issues such as character count, title length, and ratings and reviews, as well as content readiness scores for each SKU.
Kinda reminds me to some of Epinium‘s or RemDash's features for Amazon Vendors, but this is more advanced, making your Brand's consistency easier to manage. As we just discussed, having 3P sellers reselling your stuff means (too often) poor, non-optimized, sometimes awful listings. Not to mention miss-leading infos on your product descriptions.
Retail Media Management
PPC campaigns optimizer
CommerceIQ's AI system helps brands optimize their marketing campaigns by providing insights on performance, target audience, and budget allocation.

It also includes budget optimization, which helps brands allocate their marketing budget effectively to maximize ROI.
Amazon Advertising Management

It also offers inventory management tools to help brands optimize their stock levels and reduce the risk of running out of stock or holding excess inventory.
The Supply Chain section includes a PO shipment tracker, a sales forecast vs your forecast (see screenshot below), a Purchase Order reconciliation tool + Revenue recovery automation, the Predicted OOS (Out Of Stock) SKUs and the PO fill rate improvements tool.
