Overall Satisfaction with AlphaSense

We use AlphaSense primarily to aggregate, categorize, sort, and prioritize incoming news/PR/sell-side notes/etc. Lately have been also using it more and more for our lookback searches too and starting to play with the integrations in the hope of fixing our SharePoint woes. We probably use it overall less than BamSEC or Bloomberg or just Google search, but it meets the use case of being able to feed different sources and filter by source, theme, keywords, etc.
  • Tagging
  • Smart search
  • Alerts
  • Team sharing
  • Integrations
  • CS
  • make entitlements easier to transfer/manage - A MUST - FactSet who is their service provider for this does it so...
  • email alerts
  • mobile app
  • AMR research
  • Team integration
  • better use of time for research
  • Less effort keeping track of incoming news
  • Fixing our unorganized SharePoint (just connect to SharePoint and search on AlphaSense)
Completely logical and intuitive UI. No need to learn a coding language like with Bloomberg. The perfect combination of easy enough and precise enough
Rather than changing how we perform on that task (huge part of our job) it's instead freed us to also devote time and attention to other stuff.

Before AS, keeping tabs on our space was a full time job. Now we get to do our full time jobs (where keeping up to date is necessary but by no means sufficient)
They are all unique and we actually still use them all. But if we had to pick one (minus the obvious lack of financial data...) it's AlphaSense because of how much easier it is to use. The others are worse at getting documents and even snippets Out, and then have much worse markup/bookmark, etc capabilities

Do you think AlphaSense delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with AlphaSense's feature set?


Did AlphaSense live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of AlphaSense go as expected?


Would you buy AlphaSense again?


the only game in town for its specific ideal use cases When you have to integrate and sift through textual information from various sources there is really no other choice. We use it to keep on top of analyst notes, company PRs, news, SEC filings, other regulators, patents, clinical trials, lawsuits, and the like

Using AlphaSense

8 - Strategy, IR, Finance, Research, Investments
N/A all just the normal support from AS we have no one internal just a billing contact
  • Equity Research
  • Company PRs
  • updates
  • Fixing our sharepoint organization woes
  • Great way to pay per page of equity research we do not subscribe to
  • We hope that since they bought teneo they eventually will merge financial data with their amazing contextual doc search
No brainer - this will stick around forever like bbg Terminal
