Best platform for Scouting and Purchasing?

I'm looking for advice on the best platform/service/app to collect this data for scouting and purchasing. Any ideas?

Scouting:
– Independent ranks (possibly through page visits? Conversion rates?)
– Multi-channel (AMZN US, CA, MX, EU, WMT, eBay, Wish, etc.)
– Live data by variation (alerts to see if something got better ranking, better pricing/profitability due to buy and sell side changes in price)
– Historical data included
– Pulls competitors and their brands, cross-references with cost, etc.
– Uses data from PETS by brand, by vendor, and by date so we can also keep track of it (only if needed)
– Automatically pulls top 30k products by category on Amazon to establish new client list
– Reads full sales channel catalog (reverse the information flow from Amazon into PETS for approach, not purchasing)
– Analyzes sales trends in categories and by product
– Ability to analyze distributor catalogs without need for Excel UPC Price List (online format, not all have Excel files)

Purchasing:
Entails much of the analysis done by scouting. Both processes work together. If nothing is scouted, nothing can be purchased.
– Analyzes scouting
– Entails replenishment report
– Automates adding a listing onto Amazon based on the ASIN (as well as other sales channels)
– Collects delivery times
– Send PO to reps (auto-populates but must be manually delivered, not automated because could be dangerous)
– Auto-populates into BOARD, collects delivery tracking info and keeps it as up to date as possible
– Overstock notifications
