We enlighten meanings

We extract strategic insights for multinational organizations reporting to our clients in extended or abridged versions ready to be distributed to any stakeholder.

Our tools

We have developed our proprietary tools, based on our expertise and market knowledge.

This tool was born from the need to follow live events Twitter and Instagram based. Built around a proprietary interface, the dashboard is divided in two sections: the first one working on a predefined panel, the second one working on the generic audience. The first section does work on a panel of influencers, allowing to interact with the contents they produce, ranking their activity. The second section does work on the larger audience with the goal to identify other contributors worth to be included in the influencer panel. The visual is widget based to facilitate any interaction. The tool is fully responsive.

When tackling the Web and Social Media Monitoring, one of the first question is: do I need people outstanding at understanding what’s written or people outstanding in attributing meaning to data? Our answer has been “we need both” since the very beginning.
