Market Hub, who’s brief is to help retailers shape and execute pricing and promotion strategies using big data analytics and pricing display technology managed via the cloud are a newly established tech start up based in Ireland with a bright future ahead of them.
Market Hub founder, Roy Horgan, was endorsing of the agreement and spoke of how much he is looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship between the two companies. Roy spoke on the technology involved and how it can help benefit retailers everywhere.
“Market Hub uses its dynamic pricing technology to allow retailers to become more agile and proactive to market movements in prices. For example 100’s of tons in food waste is being dumped every year, however if retailers had a tool to determine when to promote, at what price, and then at the press of the button change the price, as much as 50% of that waste can be saved, which all goes to the bottom line.”
