Urban Tide


Over the last five years, UrbanTide has partnered with numerous organisations and local authorities to unlock the benefits of data via USMART, our real-time data insights platform.

We have first-hand experience of the challenges of working with reduced budgets and increased demand. Our recent innovations include helping local authorities to obtain lost revenue, increase productivity via reduced FOI requests and improved transparency. We use IoT and AI to identify and map assets helping cities and organisations to meet legislated targets and improve service delivery and citizen well being.

We designed and built USMART specifically to meet these 21st-century challenges. USMART unlocks siloed data with advanced sharing capabilities, from secure API curation to open data publication. We integrate and apply machine learning and AI algorithms to automate insights and help people and places work better and smarter.
