Another day, another social shopping offering (this time a comparison engine).
PriceSpider.com, backed by leading Microsoft National Systems Integrator
Neudesic, announced the launch of its price comparison web site to help
consumers (what else) save time and money. PriceSpider.com is billing itself as
the latest in social networking and ground-breaking web-crawling technology.
Let's look at how it works.
Traditional comparison web sites only post pricing and availability periodically
for a limited group of retailers. The advantage of PriceSpider.com is that it is
an active search engine using technology that continuously scans for pricing and
product information. The search spans hundreds of online retailers in real-time
to provide consumers with the true lowest price available on the web.
PriceSpider also enables users to create a personal network to share their
product lists with others and features the ability to communicate with their
personal network to track and share product and pricing information.
