Exploit the potential of text analytics

The current generation of platforms and apps are exploiting the potential of text analytics and big data more than ever. But if natural language processing isn’t your core competency, then you’re probably looking for alternatives to rolling your own (especially if your market horizon extends beyond the world of English speakers).

Rocket fuel for startups

Rosette, from Basis Technology, is the text analytics platform of choice for leading firms in a wide range of verticals, including enterprise search, business intelligence, data mining, eDiscovery, financial compliance, and national security. The same high-performance, rigorously-tested NLP suite used by Airbnb, Attivio, Microsoft, Oracle, Pinterest, Salesforce, StumbleUpon, Yelp, and countless others is available to startups.


  • Full suite of tools required for high-quality multilingual text search, including language identification, tokenization, lemmatization, decompounding, part-of-speech tagging, entity extraction, and cross-lingual fuzzy name matching
  • Single API with access to all languages, so there’s no need to find and integrate new solutions for every new language you encounter. Simply turn on additional languages as needed
