The Polish company supports global brands in automating customer feedback analysis and customer service using AI technology. The SentiOne platform is available in over 75 languages, and the company acquired over 500 customers from 35 countries, including Pepsi, LG, T-Mobile, Procter & Gamble, Nivea, mBank, PKO BP, and Alior Bank.
The company was founded in 2011 and achieved $3.75M in revenues in 2020 by opening offices in the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Hungary, Germany, Mexico, and the United Arab Emirates. SentiOne, with its R&D department located in Poland, implemented the “SentiCognitiveServices” project together with the Wrocław University of Technology and AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, under which it created a proprietary natural language processing technology for colloquial texts. The value of the project was $2.9M, of which the NCBiR co-financing was $2.1M. In 2021, the company received another $4.7M in NCBiR subsidies for the further development of artificial intelligence technology, which turned out to be the highest grant of this type in Poland so far.
