ayfie Group combines the best-in-class search technology of VirtualWorks with ayfie’s text analytics engine to be a leading player in data search and analysis.

March, 8th 2018

Today we announced the merging of our two entities, ayfie and VirtualWorks, to form ayfie Group.

The merging of the two entities is a strategic business decision stemming from market demand for an all-encompassing search and text analysis solution. By combining ayfie’s linguistic skills and machine learning with VirtualWorks’ powerful seach technology, ayfie Group is situated to be the market leader in providing the most powerful tools for companies that need better insight and overview of their data. The solutions ayfie Group offers can be customized to different industries and businesses of all sizes with the ability to be customized for individual businesses.

New Product Line

With merging the two entities, we also merged the product lines for an overall more attractive offering. That also includes a rebranding of our current VirtualWorks products as follows:

  • ayfie Inspector: Our current solution for generating content insights
  • ayfie Locator: Our solution for knowledge discovery - formerly known as viaworks
  • ayfie Predictor: Our solution for predictive search - formerly known as viasuggest
  • ayfie Supervisor: Our solution for compliance - formerly known viainsight


Customers want solutions that combine search and text analysis to not only find what they want, but to make sense of what they find. As ayfie Group, we will now offer even more innovative and complete solutions under one brand, making it easier to broaden our core markets in the US, Europe and the Nordic countries

Erik Baklid
CEO of ayfie Group

When ayfie Inc. took off in 2016, our main goal was to establish position in the US as an advanced text and content analysis company. And while many of our clients realized significant benefits from our standalone solution, we recognized the need for something more — and that ‘more’ was available right at our fingertips with our sister company, VirtualWorks. Now under one roof, ayfie Group will provide search, processing, analysis and GDPR compliance solutions for companies’ large amounts of unstructured data – giving them the ability to access data more efficiently and make sense of it to make better business decisions.
