ConveyAPI is a text analytics engine that replicates and scales human social media analysis for an accurate summary of consumer attitudes across high-volume data sources, such as social media conversations. Converseon launched ConveyAPI to address the growing influence of social media on enterprise business decisions, which requires clear actionable metrics. ConveyAPI has a very simple business plan, to focus exclusively on making the best text analytics engine in the market, and to provide access to this engine via its API on a CPM (cost per 1,000 documents analyzed) basis. This means social media monitoring tools lacking ConveyAPI’s deeper-level text analytics can integrate this API with their offerings. On the other end of the spectrum, ConveyAPI’s simple structure allows any company to easily set up access to ConveyAPI internally in a very short time. DreamSimplicity met with Vidar Brekke, Chief Product Officer at Converseon, to learn about ConveyAPI’s technology and why it is a game changer in the social media analysis space.
