Describe the company – the elevator pitch…
Profilyser is a web-based solution that analyses social media activity, measures and visualises influence areas and identify key influencers. Users can query our tool with keywords and timeframes and will obtain a visual representation (cartography) of hotspots and related key influencers.
In a few words: Profilyser connects the who, the what and the where.
