NewProduct: Ulysses DSS (Data Subscription Service)

The new Ulysses™ Data Subscription Service offers a true on-demand database platform for researching your industry. Each datapage builds searches according to the product and market parameters set out above and allows you to drill down more deeply into the data using multiple parameters. It draws the data from our vast database which we have been building for many years, and gives you only the results you searched for. It also offers many other features not available in off-the-shelf reports, providing you with custom control and reporting. (click tabs to see details)


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 type'; 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.

Product Option: Published Research

Our published research has been industry proven as a consistently reliable source of market intelligence for many years. Through our work publishing research reports on machining and materials, we have been able to offer clients valuable insights into new and existing markets.

The report contains over 150 pages and over 125 charts/graphs.
