The days where you had to build new one-off spreadsheets and shuffle and move data around to plot a value map is over. You now have one integrated space that allows you to capture your competition's product data and use that for various analytics including value maps. Any changes to products will be reflected automatically in your chart. 

With the Gocious platform, you can now leverage your competitive analysis space to create value maps. Using this feature, you can capture market share for each product and see how competitive products and your product are stacked against the line of indifference. The Gocious platform will calculate and display the line of indifference for you whenever you select the benchmark product.  

With this new capability, you can gain insight into your product value and pricing. For example, you can see if your product is overpriced and whether you need to add more value or reduce the price.

You can also use value maps to decide at what price to introduce your product in the market to gain rapid market share. By tracking value maps over time, you can also see shifts in the overall market.
