Product/Service Summary

LotaData pioneered "People Intelligence" (trademarked). Our Artificial Intelligence B2B platform provides geo-analytics and predictive insights for the connected mobile world.

Your mobile location is a strong indicator of your intent. LotaData's thesis is that "where you are in the real world is a great indicator of who your are and what you might do next".

As connected devices like mobile phones, cars, and iot send back trillions of location signals each day, LotaData collects and transforms this data into user profiles and behavioral segments, with high accuracy and at massive scale. We have data for 80 Million mobile devices. At present growth rate, we will exceed 150 Million mobile devices by Q1 2018.

LotaData's customers include mobile telcos, app publishers, marketing agencies, retail brands, financial services, and government agencies who subscribe to data insights through our B2B SaaS platform.
