The advantage

  1. 1. Global Real Time Coverage

    Signal has one of the broadest reaches in terms of online coverage tracking globally every relevant news article, social post, search volume, video, review and much more in relation to every major brand, company and product, TV show and movie.

  2. 2. Advanced NLP and Data Science

    The way people use language around different topics, sectors and industries is radically different. To account for this Signal employs some of the most advanced topic specific NLP models to parse out sentiment, intent, and emotion dependant on the context of the issue being tracked.

  3. 3. Combined Survey and Social Data

    Signal provides a greater level of insights by combining YouGov’s pre existing survey data with anonymised samples of social data to create a richer picture around the groups of people who are commenting or engaging with your brand, product or company.
