How do you perform text analytics?

Text analytics can unlock new insights and functionality

“We are excited to work with Idibon to explore new ways of engaging with the young people that we serve — in their own local languages and dialects. Thanks to Idibon’s unique natural language processing technology, we’ll be able to better understand and empower marginalized communities that are often excluded due to language barriers.”

Evan Wheeler, CTO of UNICEF’s Global Innovation Centre

Analyst efficiency offers a huge return-on-investment

“Idibon provides a well-designed and uniquely delivered service that can be flexibly integrated into applications. We are impressed by Idibon’s ability to work with very large unstructured documents with esoteric terminology.”

John Akred, CTO of Silicon Valley Data Science re.

Everything about our system is faster and more accurate than legacy vendors

Existing text analytics tools often require a great deal of time and frustration to upload and categorize documents. Idibon’s system allows massive parallelization. Ask us about how you can get unprecedented levels of accuracy.
