SAN DIEGO , CA (August 24, 2007) — Visual Sciences, Inc. (formerly known as WebSideStory, Inc.) (NASDA Q: VSCN ), a leading provider of real-time analytics applications, today announced that Visual Sciences Technology Platform 5™ has been selected by KMWorld magazine as a “Trend-Setting Product of the Year” for 2007.
