Its focus lies in addressing the challenges posed by the surge in suspected bad actors and unverified sellers. Through reseller verification and product authentication, the platform automatically removes infringing product listings from the customers’ view.
This not only reduces the manual efforts of e-commerce and legal teams in tracking, but is also said to boast a 98% success rate on key customers’ enforcement and IP portals submissions.
GreyScout also says that its streamlined onboarding process significantly reduces setup time, transforming what used to take weeks or even months into a mere matter of hours.
