“Signals Analytics alleviates the challenges food and beverage brands face in making strategic product decisions by providing smart, holistic, timely and actionable market intelligence gleaned from a multitude of external data sources,” said Gil Sadeh, CEO of Signals Analytics. “Companies that are data-driven know that the most valuable data exists outside their organizations, but the question is how to collect, connect and use it in a meaningful way. By giving companies the ability to understand the relationships between different categories and trends, and how consumer sentiment shapes them, we are strengthening the solutions we offer our clients as their strategic partner and helping them win in today’s hyper-competitive and continuously evolving marketplace.”
The Signals Analytics platform merges deep industry expertise with smart contextual engines, leveraging both human curation and artificial intelligence.
