Network Performance

The most certain way to connect impressions to sales.

When a customer is truly in-market, we know. Only Urban Science® lets you target, suppress, acquire, and attribute with precision.

Enhance every level of the media ecosystem

Introducing the revolutionary suite of solutions that takes the guesswork out of planning, deploying, and optimizing automotive media. Our industry-exclusive, near real-time auto sales* data empowers more precise, effective planning and targeting, and provides the one metric that gives meaning to all other metrics — sales.

* Sales refers to vehicle unit sales and does not represent vehicle price or revenue.

Dig deeper into real time sales by ZIP code, dealership, segment, and more to deploy marketing where it has the greatest effect.

See how smarter planning works

Target the customers most likely to be shopping for a vehicle in the next three months. By combining our exclusive near real time industry-wide sales data with historical sales data and insights into household demographics, we’ll help you zero in on ready-to-buy customers.

Connect with in-market buyers

Our analytics actively identify and help you suppress customers who recently purchased a vehicle and are no longer in-market so you can redeploy your resources towards customers who are still looking to buy.

Learn how suppression adds up

Calibrate your campaign measurements to the one metric that gives added meaning to all other metrics — sales. Measure cross-channel touch points to actual sales across the country to reveal a marketing campaign’s true effectiveness in near real time. Plus, see if your media target purchased from a competitor so you can optimize the campaign to defend and grow market share.
