Synthesio is an elegant enterprise-level social media monitoring, analysis & engagement company. It monitors the whole gamut of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube & Foursquare right down to blogs, forums and yes even China’s Weibo.
Synthesio uses a mixture of automated processes (collecting data from 100+ countries and 50 languages) and human analysts to monitor topics for clients globally. Synthesio claims that they have analysts that can monitor over 30+ languages globally, and currently provides auto-sentiment technologies in 10 languages (including Chinese). Corporate clients will have an account manager assigned to them to help in the analysing their requirements and the topics to monitor and the dashboard setup. DIY setup by clients is also possible.
Monitoring results can be downloaded as an Excel file for further analysis. Charts can be downloaded as a picture for presentation purpose. As this is a web hosted application – the client’s team can be situated anywhere in the world and is still able to access the same set of data and report.
The strengths of Synthesio are :
- Beautiful dashboard and charting capability.
- Ability to search and filter by media type right down to the verbatim quote in the local language.
- Identify influencers by media type right down to forums and blogs.
Appended below are snapshots of some of the charts that you can find on Synthesio. This is a demo analysis using data from the hotel industry. Due to confidentiality reasons I’m only able to show you a limited set of screenshots and images. All charts may be adjusted by the user via time frame and country, and users may easily drill down into any segment to view the relevant individual verbatim.
Synthesio is ideal for MNCs with global operations that need an industrial-strength social media monitoring tool that is able to report on a day-to-day basis feedback on new product launch, new advertising campaign or even fast breaking topics during a crisis (eg during a product recall or food tampering situation). Marketing department will be able to make adjustments to their plan on a day to day basis based on the feedback that it is getting.
