Sometimes it is easier to work against existing competition. Look at Microsoft. They created hardly anything new. They took an existing idea/product and spend some time deciding how it can be improved.
In your case I bet you have (or plan to have) some features that the competitor doesn't. Look at what they offer, implement it, throw in the features they don't have and you will have the bragging rights to say that your product does what their products does, and then some more.
I say go for it!
