I just came back from the Prosper Show which was pretty amazing for me.
It would make less sense for small sellers or sellers with small number of products listed, but there were many smart sellers out there and a few great software solutions that I was impressed with and will test out.
My short list is:
Skubana for inventory management and profit tracking (supports 3PL warehouse + FBA synching)
Forecast.ly for inventory planning and restocking (gives you a super accurate inventory forcasting and takes into consideration things like restocking time, time item was sold, sales velocity, profitability etc)... If it works as they said it does, this thing pays for itself even if you have one fast selling item...)
FeedVisor for algorithmic repricing... What's different here is that they have a) optimal sales velocity repricing, so an algorithm will figure out your optimal sale price for a product quantity vs price (for higher profit) and b) restocking date based repricing - you have X units and sell Y per month and you will be getting more stock in Z days... so price is adjusted to slow down sales and increase profit with the restocking date in mind... The only trouble is that this package is 2,500 per month + 0.25 of your sales, which means you better have some sales to support this...
Just curious if anyone else was there and what your highlights were...
