No. Narrative neither buys nor sells data. We offer a software platform to companies who are acquiring and/or distributing data directly between each other.
Narrative's software was built to support any data type. We use the concept of a data package or schema to create normalized formats for any data flowing through our pipes.
Narrative has two separate pricing models. For participants in our data marketplace Narrative takes a small percentage of the transacted data value. For organizations who are using our platform outside of the marketplace we license our software on an annual basis.
No. If you are a Narrative customer you are not asked to participate in any form of data co-op. Narrative offers a software platform that lets you determine your own data strategy.
