We started as e-commerce sellers and not a software company. We began selling online in the early 90’s, well before any minimum advertised price monitoring policies existed. We grew our business to do over a half million in sales every month. Life was good.
Somewhere around 2003 manufacturers came to us with their MAP pricing policies. We were happy to comply. We were the good guys after all, with a full-time customer service department. We hoped this would lead to greater margins. After all, it is no fun trying to make a living with 1% margins!
Soon we noticed a problem. Our sales were declining. We discovered that our sales stopped for all clients with MAP policies. Here we were expecting greater margins, but instead, we got the exact opposite. This was extremely frustrating, to say the least. We contacted the manufacturers and told them to please police their MAP violators better because good guys like us were losing sales to the shady site operators who were sitting around in…Read more

"Without an effective MAP policy, the brand integrity of our premium products would be completely undermined. For over three years we have received consistent, reliable monitoring support of our MAP enforcement program. With their assistance, the violations of our brand's integrity have been dramatically reduced. Their ongoing innovation has allowed us to keep pace as violators develop new methods of attempting to circumvent our MAP policy." Marc C.

"With over 15,000 sku’s covering seven different brands, each having their own MAP policies and requirements, we did a lot of research to find the best MAP monitoring and enforcement company. For a few years we used several companies simultaneously so we really learned the differences in their capabilities. It did not take us long to realize that one company far outperformed the others. MAP Services Corp finds more violators, is by far the most accurate in their reports, and has outstanding customer service. We started out with over 60,000 MAP violations and within six months MAP Services Corp had it down to just under 400 (and it’s still going down). Using them has increased my efficiency ten fold, and has allowed me to coordinate MAP concerns from our vendors, presenting our company in a better light in their eyes as well as prospective vendors. Now we only use MAP Services Corp because they’ve earned the top spot as the leader in MAP support” Dan H
Before Map Services, enforcement of our pricing policy was somewhat effective but terribly inefficient. Since retaining Map Services, all I have to do is review an email, which only takes about 30 seconds a day! Map Services has saved me countless hours, if not days. They are a savior! Jay P
