The company, founded in 2007, aims to expand the use of its retail predictive analytics software service Intelligent Trader in the United States. It counts as clients in Europe such retailers as Asda and House of Fraser Stores Ltd. Asda, a supermarket chain and a division of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., is No. 17 in Internet Retailer’s Top 400 Europe. House of Fraser, a department store chain, is No. 100.
