Overall Satisfaction with AlphaSense

Use of AlphaSense to monitor capital markets, competition & business development opportunities. It is also very helpful in market research and finding relevant information across basically all parts of our business.

It's great to be able to create searches and have updates sent automatically on a regular basis, thus not missing any intel that could be crucial.
  • Competitive intelligence searches.
  • Market research.
  • Monitor capital markets.
  • Sell-side research.
  • Ability to export bigger searches.
  • Coverage of more research institutions (especially local ones).
  • Ability to more accurately find market reports when this feature is used (often a bit inaccurate and includes other results as well).
  • Finding new ideas for potential collaborations.
  • Great strategic insights.
  • New data and analysis on competitors.
  • Efficiency in monitoring news flow.
In general very intuitive, with powerful search functions, without being overwhelming. Easy to set up searches and save these, set up notifications, and so on.

Have had a few issues where I was a bit confused about certain functionality, but that was easily addressed by the support team. The onboarding also is great to get familiar with some of the functionality.
AlphaSense has helped us to be more aware of valuable market intelligence by enabling us to set up relevant searches that capture almost all relevant newsflow since the included sources are so comprehensive and industry-specific. Not only does it capture newsflow, but also commentary from analysts and industry leaders, which is of great use.
It's a totally different tool vs financial terminals etc, much more focused on generation intelligence vs just monitoring capital markets. If you are looking for financial data AlphaSense is not your option, but for market/competitive intelligence, it's fantastic.

Very suitable to set up search queries to monitor specific topics for purposes of sell-side research, newsflow, commentary, etc. This can be used both for market research, competitive intelligence, business development, and so on.

It's also a great starting point for diving into a new topic to research, for example when entering a new market or similar. Easy to find relevant analysis and info on almost any topic.

Less appropriate when looking for info from private markets, but this is of course expected since the tool is largely based on sell-side research and similar.
