How AlphaSense Makes Qualitative Analysis Easy

Qualitative analysis is complex. Traditionally, it involves analysts spending hours poring over pages and pages of text to find the right insights. Even then, the likelihood was high that something would slip through the cracks, or that there would be inaccuracies in the analysis. 

AlphaSense completely transforms the qualitative analysis process, eliminating human error from the equation and turning a task that once took days or hours into one that can be executed in seconds. 

Further, the platform offers capabilities that are much more advanced than traditional tools like Excel and that are purpose-built to analyze qualitative text data.

For example: the most recent quarterly earnings call for social media giant Meta was over one hour long. Smart Summaries instantly generated a concise, bulleted list of key positives and negatives from the call, enabling you to quickly identify the key topics that were discussed.

When you open the call transcript to scan it, sentiment analysis helps you categorize insights and follow the overall tone of the discussion with color coding for positive and negative sentiment.

The next time you need to provide a quick POV or overview on a target company, or conduct a full qualitative analysis on a short turnaround to inform a decision, you won’t have to burn the midnight oil to do it.

Instead, AlphaSense helps you leverage automation, AI, and cloud-powered software to help your team members execute smart qualitative analysis with confidence—and from anywhere.

It’s something that outdated, spreadsheet-based research processes simply cannot accomplish, no matter how smart and experienced your analysts are.
