How the Top Tech Companies Use AlphaSense

For those in the technology space, speed is paramount. With updates and developments unfolding on a near-constant basis, tech companies wanting to stay competitive need to keep their finger on the pulse of the industry at all times. 

AlphaSense not only helps you uncover the critical insights that matter most, but empowers you to apply those insights towards specific strategic goals and analysis. Here’s how the top technology companies utilize the AlphaSense platform to get ahead: 

Competitive Intelligence

AlphaSense surfaces all the competitive insights you need so that you can benchmark against peers, find new partners and vendors, generate ideas for new product development, and identify competitive risks—all in one place.

With our company recognition and Search Summaries features, you will always be first to know about any competitor updates. Keep track of your competitors’ spending priorities or growth investments by utilizing pre-programmed searches within the platform, such as:

Additionally, AlphaSense’s company tearsheets provide everything you need to compile an in-depth company profile, including segmented revenue, acquisitions and investments, earnings calls, and industry context from broker reports and expert calls


Due Diligence

If your goal is M&A, AlphaSense can help you conduct the necessary due diligence—including identifying the total addressable market (TAM), identifying new targets, and performing synergy analysis. 

Our natural language processing (NLP)-based feature theme extraction enables you to uncover financial metrics beyond those found in standard 10-Ks or 10-Qs, as well as parse through alternative information sources for companies that are not covered or that are part of an emerging industry. 

This feature is critical in the technology space because new companies and themes are constantly emerging, and having access to a tool like AlphaSense keeps you in-the-know— without the information overload.

You can also use AlphaSense to gain intel on private companies—instantly access funding round information, acquisition history, and peer comparison charts—without digging through multiple, potentially fruitless, sources.

Market Landscaping

AlphaSense ensures you never miss a critical industry update with customizable watchlists and real-time alerts for any companies or themes you are interested in. 

AlphaSense also makes it simple to monitor specific subsectors of the technology industry—from electric vehicles to artificial intelligence(AI) or SaaS—by searching those topics on the platform and seeing how the keywords have trended over time. 

Earnings Analysis & Prep

Earnings season can be overwhelming when you don’t have the tools to sort through and accurately analyze all the information companies are publishing. AlphaSense uses AI to streamline and deepen your earnings research—which means you can spend less time parsing through massive amounts of company data and more time transforming key insights into research reports or strategy.

With a large database of earnings and event transcripts—as well as intelligent search technology that helps unlock the most important insights—you can easily track any company’s QoQ performance and how they talk about a particular topic over time. Our NLP-based feature sentiment analysis also helps you identify shifts in sentiment over time, allowing you to piece together a larger narrative and spot compromises in continuity. 

Our newest generative AI feature, Smart Summaries, is also purpose-built to accelerate your earnings analysis. This feature provides bulleted summarizations for every earnings call transcript of the most important topics, guidance, competitive signals, and analyst questions—allowing you to quickly get to the heart of what’s happening within a company.

Accelerate Your Research Process with AlphaSense

AlphaSense aggregates all the essential market research perspectives you need in one place, so you can have a complete picture of the company profiles, industries, markets, or trends you are researching. 

Combined with proprietary AI and automation functionality not found on other platforms, AlphaSense helps you dramatically increase the breadth, depth, and accuracy of your research. 

Here’s what you get when you use the AlphaSense platform for your market intelligence:

Aggregated Market Research

AlphaSense houses a vast universe of over 10,000 trusted content sources, including but not limited to:

  • Company documents including event transcripts, global filings, press releases, company presentations, product brochures, and ESG reports
  • Industry research from the world’s top financial research firms, including Citi, Bank of America, Jefferies, and William Blair
  • Unique industry expert perspectives from customers, competitors, product leads, engineers, and partners
  • Thousands of curated news sources, trade publications, and regulatory information 

Our platform not only houses all of the content you need to make rapid data-driven decisions, it also helps you cut through the noise with advanced search functionality.

Semantic Search

Instead of digging through fragmented reports and alerts, you can rely on our semantic search to ensure you never miss out on critical insights. Our AI search technology automatically recognizes what you are looking for and delivers the results that match the intent behind your query. This means you don’t have to do multiple searches to get the results you need, and you can be more confident in the comprehensiveness and accuracy of your research. 

Sentiment Analysis 

With AlphaSense, you can use AI-based sentiment analysis to identify, quantify, and analyze levels of emotion within text, particularly earnings calls and expert transcripts. Understanding sentiment can help you catch the subtle inflection points in language that move markets and provide early indicators of shifting corporate performance. This feature works in seconds, saving hours previously spent combing through company documents and expert transcripts for the best insights.

Generative AI

Unlike other generative AI (genAI) tools that are focused on consumer users and trained on publicly available content across the web, AlphaSense takes an entirely different approach. As a platform purpose-built to drive the world’s biggest business and financial decisions, our Smart Summaries feature leverages our 10+ years of AI tech development and draws from a curated collection of high-quality business content.

With Smart Summaries, you can glean instant earnings insights—reducing time spent on research during earnings season, quickly capture company outlook, and generate an expert-approved SWOT analysis straight from former competitors, partners, and employees.
