Why Do Companies Choose AlphaSense?
AlphaSense is a leading all-in-one market intelligence platform and smart search engine. It’s the ideal tool for research and business professionals—from analysts and financial researchers to corporate professionals—looking to implement a qualitative research strategy powered by proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) technology and automation.
Here’s what sets AlphaSense apart from other market intelligence tools:
Premium Content Sets
In market and competitive intelligence, the more diversified content sources you have access to, the better and more accurate your insights will be.
AlphaSense’s extensive content universe provides access to over 10,000 private, public, premium, and proprietary sources—indexed, searchable, and all in one place. That content is organized by the four key perspectives:
- Company – These are documents published by public and private companies, including SEC and company filings, earnings reports, presentations, transcripts, and ESG reports.
- Journalist – This is content published in major news networks, trade journals, and government and NGO publications.
- Analyst – Our Wall Street Insights® content library includes leading equity research from 1,000+ sell-side and independent firms, covering global industries, sector themes, and companies.
- Expert – Our Stream expert transcript library houses 30,000+ interviews conducted by experienced buy-side analysts with pre-vetted industry experts (former executives, customers, competitors, and partners). Stream is available as an add-on feature.
Advanced AI Search Technology
Analysts are most effective when they can spend their time on actual research—instead of fruitlessly searching for sources. Our Smart Synonyms™ technology enables you to access every relevant source and insight in a single search, while filtering out any irrelevant results.
Smart Synonyms™ recognizes the intent behind your search, then automatically includes results for your search terms and those with the same or similar meaning. This feature mitigates the risk of user error or missing information, and saves you countless hours previously spent on manual research—freeing up time for higher-level tasks like strategy and analysis.
Sentiment analysis is a natural language processing (NLP)-based feature built into the AlphaSense platform. When the platform detects a slight change in a text’s tone and subjective meaning, it highlights it using different color codes. These color changes help you identify if documents have negative, positive, or neutral sentiments.
Further, each search term gets a sentiment change score. Using this numerical score, you can track slight market sentiment changes over time. Subtle inflection points in language can often provide early indicators of shifting corporate performance.
Document Trend Analysis
When conducting research or analysis on a particular topic or company, it is important to understand the frequency of and context in which your search term appears across data sources over time.
In the AlphaSense platform, each user search generates a document trend analysis—a graphic visualization of how often a keyword, company, or topic is being mentioned across content sources on the platform over a given time period.
It’s a simple yet powerful way to understand and evaluate the relevance of market movements and trends over time. Document trend analyses can also be sorted by content type for a more detailed understanding of the how and who of a topic being discussed.
Multiple integration Options
AlphaSense provides easy integration with commonly-used programs such as OneNote, Sharepoint, and Evernote to enhance your productivity and streamline your collaboration.
Integrations are key in improving your team’s workflow in a secure and automated way, and AlphaSense integrations are powered by AI and help capture what others easily miss. With integrations, you can easily search across all internal and external content to find actionable insights, as well as collaborate with team members to share those insights internally.
