Family : software agent (shopping assistant)
Sub-family : comparison shopper

Deal Pilot (formerly Acses), may represent this change. The market economy suggests that competition is rife on Internet. And yet, comparing the choice offered by different companies is virtually impossible. First of all, the consumer finds it difficult to find all the different booksellers on Internet because he knows neither their names nor Website addresses. Besides, he can't spot the exact differences in price or the services offered from one shop to another. You yourself are probably an expert in electronic commerce, but would you know the difference between the pricing policy of amazon, Barnes & Noble and Borders ? Deal Pilot answers these questions by comparing the price of around thirty online bookstores, to allow you find the most competitive. Thus at one single site you can compare prices, delivery times and transport costs of the different sellers. The saving of time and money is obvious.

This explains the development of these new selling systems on Internet, of which there are already hundreds.

Amazon has only reproduced and improved a commercial concept belonging to the industrial economy in the digital economy. On the other hand, comparison shopping (the system of comparing various products) is a completely innovative concept, in the sense that it doesn't correspond to an existing commercial concept in the real world, but which has already proved its efficiency amongst all the more or less convincing innovations appearing on Internet.

One of the oldest member of the Dealpilot family is Bargain Finder, developed by Arthur Anderson in 1995, which compares the prices of compact discs. Unfortunately, the Bargain Finder system has its limitations, in view of the more expensive stores' refusal to adhere to the principle of price comparison.
