Ulysses Content

Ulysses Data Content

As mentioned, the core functionality of Ulysses builds on the data and intelligence knowledgebase that we have been building, accumulating and refining over many years of covering the markets we serve.

Ulysses also presents data and intelligence in extended ways, specifically:

  • by each search criteria detailed above;
  • by breakdowns that go deeper based on the product, regional, and end-user criteria. For example, that means that Ulysses can provide search results such as 'country x end-user x year' or 'country x end-user x year x subtype'; and
  • by value ($MM), volume (unitsMM) and average price ($/unit) for each criteria;
  • by detailed competitive intelligence including market shares, profiles, and product analysis;
  • by custom search of qualitative analysis (such as factors affecting demand, technological factors, market disruptions) based on the search criteria;
  • by also providing access to source data such as macroeconomic data on end-user industries by country, and industrial production indices; and
  • much more...

Ulysses Data Search and Chart Features

Ulysses Search and Chart Features

Ulysses allows you to search and create outputs based on the specific needs of your team. Some of the added functionality of Ulysses includes:

  • multi-level searches that allow you to drill-down according to the available product criteria. For example, searching by 'country x end-user x year' or 'country x end-user x year x subtype' (value, volume, ASP);
  • pivot table display and output and the ability to export the data into a spreadsheet, such as excel. This convenience of being able to output the data will save hours of time;
  • chart and graph display (pie, line, etc.) and output (.jpg, .png) according to product criteria that makes creating internal reports that much more simple; and
  • a clear interface and ease of use unparalleled by other research and database products.

If you want to see Ulysses in action, simply request to watch the Ulysses recorded demo or request a live demo for you and your team.
