What We’re Doing:

We’re changing the world for the, more than 400 million, knowledge workers that generate high-value documents for organizations around the globe. By using AI classifiers and providing real-time linguistic analytics, we’re helping them significantly reduce textual ambiguities and craft linguistically hardened language in their documents.

Our tech stack includes Java, C#, React.js, .Net, and a few other goodies.

What We’ve Done (So Far):

- Received our software/systems patent in June, 2017
- Awarded over $350,000 in infrastructure credits by global technology provider.
- Top-to-bottom redesign of UI/UX
- EAU launch of a custom interface useful by a channel partner’s 28,000 customer base
