Business competition due to ecommerce forces us to be aware of competitors' prices. When these prices are available on the web: how would it be possible to capture them periodically inside OpenErp? And then match/compare with our own prices for a possible adjustment?(Amazon does it)
Is there a module doing this already or Would it require a comprehensive addon, - with a specific workflow - to be developped?
I do not know if there is an addon for doing that, and I think this problem should be solved by at least two addons. One of them records the competitors' prices in the database (I can think of a one2many relationship between products and competitors' prices). The other addon actually reads the competitor's homepage, and extracts the prices. That is doable, the thing is the routine that extracts the prices changes from website to website.
