Urban Science, a global strategic consulting firm, has purchased Contour analytical platform products for developing a global web reporting solution.
Urban Science produces real-world solutions for optimizing retail sales channel performance worldwide. In the area of Site Solutions, Urban Science is building a web application framework that allows retail sites to analyze their business, to measure and improve performance and profits through the analysis of Sales, Demographic and Financial data.

The OLAP microcubes and the web framework will be distributed worldwide to their clients in multiple industries, with a user base approaching 30,000 users. The users will be generating microcubes on a daily basis to analyze the incremental opportunities in their business and identify why those opportunities are eventually not being realized.
