Our platform extracts unique meaning and value from unstructured text making it a powerful tool capable of uncovering the value and insight in content at the right time.

ayfie is backed by more than 30 years of research and experience in linguistics, computational linguistics and computer science. We provide text analytics solutions for eDiscovery, finance, publishing and compliance - all the text-heavy and highly regulated industries with a need for digesting and culling unstructured content.

The text analytics market has been saturated with companies promising a unique and seamless interface - one that utilizes machine learning to deliver exact information the user is searching for. The problem is, few can deliver on their promises.

ayfie’s machine learning model is fundamentally different from others. Other platforms treat words and letters as symbols or tokens; ayfie identifies meaning. Our technology provides aided intelligence - human-style analytics that assists our clients in doing their job faster and more accurately.

With ayfie, our clients do not have to take on the responsibility of manually reading through endless documents of unstructured data or wasting countless hours analyzing large amounts of content—ayfie makes sense of it for them. Let us show your organization how our revolutionary text analytics platform can unlock valuable information hidden within unstructured data.

ayfie Group is an international team with sales offices and development teams in Oslo, Fort Lauderdale, Munich, New York, Washington and Stockholm. Our team works across borders with customers, support, innovation projects and development.
