Vision Corner

Today, organizations face unprecedented complex data challenges. As information continues to explode and markets, regulations, and industries evolve, investing in a technology that provides precise, complete, and consistent information in real-time is key in tackling strategic business initiatives.

As we enhance Semaphore, our Semantic AI platform, we focus on product updates that include market demands and customer feedback to ensure we deliver value-driven improvements across all Semaphore modules. We incorporate innovative technologies and strategies that allow us to provide a unified user experience, enhanced interoperability, and flexible integration into our customers’ ecosystems that result in quality data-driven outcomes.

In the past year, we’ve learned that our strategy has paid off. In 2021 we were recognized as a gold medalist and leader in the 2021 Metadata Management Data Quadrant report and as the Top Vendor in the 2021 Metadata Management Emotional Footprint report from SoftwareReviews, a division of IT research and consulting firm Info-Tech Research Group.

<>The SoftwareReviews awards are unique in that they are based on the comprehensive evaluation collected from verified users and placement is determined by customer satisfaction with product features, vendor experience, capabilities, and emotional sentiment.

In the Metadata Management Data Quadrant report, SoftwareReviews named Smartlogic a Gold Medalist with a 9.3 composite score, which represents the complete and aggregated satisfaction score from you, our customers. Business Value Created and Vendor Support were two of the strongest capabilities associated with Smartlogic resulting in a 100% plan to renew. Smartlogic secured the top satisfaction scores in a variety of areas representing vendor capabilities and product features including:

  • Availability and Quality of Training
  • Satisfaction that Cost is Fair Relative to Value
  • Usability and Intuitiveness

In the Metadata Management Emotional Footprint report, we received the Top Vendor designation and an Emotional Footprint score of +98. The report identified transparency, fairness, and enabling productivity as key Semaphore features. Emotional Footprint Metrics in which Smartlogic ranked highly include:

  • Client Friendly Policies
  • Reliable
  • Enhances Productivity
  • Innovation
  • Includes Product Enhancements.

The Emotional Footprint makes the SoftwareReviews Data Quadrant unique as it is the inclusion of aggregated emotional response ratings in the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, and strategy and innovation. We’re excited to be positioned as the Top Vendor. Your positive ranking is a powerful indicator of your overall feeling toward Smartlogic, and our products and services and we thank you for your continued support.

Semantic AI Drives Supply Chain Management

Data is the driver for progress in the 21st century – where organizations used to make products, now they make data. It’s the hallmark of how businesses are run, and yet most of the information needed to make critical business decisions is stored in textual documents; not something a computer can easily process.

Patients are dependent upon supply chains to deliver medicines and healthcare. In an emergency, supply chain performance might be the difference between life and death. Emergency transport can save lives by quickly delivering accident victims to hospitals for emergency treatment. Medicines required for treatment will be available at the hospital because of excellent supply chain execution.
