There must be something slightly surreal in creating a company whose products only function well when another company does its job poorly. Then again, if it makes a buck and helps its customers, what's wrong with that? I mention this in light of a statement issued Monday by a Colorado company that helps EBay customers do better in the sea of EBay bureaucracy.
If EBay kept its systems clean and simple, then Colorado Springs-based Internet Business Skills wouldn't have a chance. Therefore, they have a very bright future. The company bills itself as "the only company providing analytical intelligence to eBay sellers in order to reduce fees" and I think it's a safe bet that their description is accurate. The product--Pyrolytics 2.0--analyzes inventory, keywords and price to help customers reduce listing and marketing fees.
