Leximancer drills into textual data: documents, e-mails, call center transcripts, blogs, web sites, etc and extracts the main concepts, themes and causal relationships to provide the information needed to make critical decisions.

By extracting root cause meaning from the vast amount of data currently scattered across the Internet and locked within the enterprise, Leximancer enables professionals to determine "why" and not just "what."

Currently a standalone desktop licence is available for Windows 64 bit and Macintosh 64 bit systems.
