Google has acquired a company that provides retailers with information regarding what products they should be selling. Rangespan is joining Google’s Shopping arm and “will continue to work on services for shoppers and retailers at Google.” On Rangespan’s website, everything has already been wiped clean.
No word yet on how much Google paid to absorb Rangespan and it will be interesting to see what path they put the company on. Is Google working on opening their own online store and utilizing Rangespan to do so? Who knows. Stay tuned.
