QBP hires Oris Intel MAP monitoring service

Published February 8, 2016

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (BRAIN) — Quality Bicycle Products has hired the MAP monitoring service provider Oris Intel to support its minimum advertised pricing and sales policies.

Besides maintaining MAP policies for each of its 19 brands, QBP also prohibits sales of any of those brands on third party marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Rakuten, and QBP's president, Rich Tauer, said, "Oris Intel is an exciting new company bringing the next level of scope and innovation to MAP monitoring. As our in-house brands continue to grow, it is important that our diligence in protecting those brands — and our dealers — grows as well."

Oris' Prowl software was designed to monitor online pricing and reduce the time it takes to enforce pricing policy infringements as well as to identify online discounters and unauthorized dealers with more accuracy and efficiency than normal comparison shopping engines.

Dahon announced last week that it had hired Oris Intel, as well. CatEye and Selle San Marco also have worked with the company.
