Top case studies
We like to publish our case studies on our blog as we feel our readers (who also use our product) will benefit from seeing real-life use cases of Prisync, especially in regards to how it helps customers increase profits and revenue.
These were particularly effective because they went into detail about how Prisync helped their company increase profits and automate manual labor.
In the coming year, we hope to speak to more customers to find out how Prisync has helped improve their business.
We’re also looking to speak to customers who haven’t yet seen an improvement to work out whether there is anything we can do to the product to help them.

Hosted great events
We’ve been pretty social and hosted numerous events in our HQ and contributed our fair share into the community. From Hacktoberfest to Python and coding meetups we’ve both gone international and local no matter where we’re located at. For this, we’re grateful that we’ve met with wonderful people from around the globe and compiled for you to re-live those moments with tiny snapshots from popular events.
Made tons of updates
A SaaS company, especially 24/7 intelligence engines like ours, means there are constantly things going on both in and out of our control. That’s why we’re looking for ways to improve our product and help our customers in any possible way with all our sensors wide open. As you can see from both the images up above and down below we handle a pretty high amount of issues handled and gotten great feedback from our customers.
All of the updates brought us very far and have been a very fruitful year in both the eyes of businesses and competitors in the entire E-Commerce industry. We usually don’t brag about the things we do but our stakeholders can clearly see where we’re going in the future by looking at the image down below.
Prisync is chosen as the highest rated pricing optimization software in Capterra and got positioned in G2Crowd as the market leader in pricing software.
Stay tuned for 2019!
For us, it’s been a wonderful year at Prisync, from new customers, partnerships, content, product updates and many more.
But as we reflect on the year behind, it’s important to also look to the year ahead.
