In 2021 we had a very clear vision: getting users to insights faster to fuel the decisions that matter. All centered around a brand new AlphaSense search experience, to coincide with our 10th anniversary. These key improvements show how we have (and will continue to) deliver on this vision.

For each of the six improvements, we explain what it is, why it matters, share an expert tip for leveraging, and give you a peek into upcoming improvements. So without further ado, here they are:

  1. New search experience: reducing search times and finding relevant results by up to 25% faster

  2. Customizable dashboards - a centralized place for all your monitoring without running a search

  3. Recommended Reads - using our AI to make sure you don’t miss anything

  4. Company Topics - AI-powered summary of earnings calls to quickly understand what is (and is not) driving company performance

  5. Expanded news and trade publication coverage - expanding English and non-English coverage significantly

  6. BONUS Expanded broker coverage (eligible clients only) - Wall Street Insights® now includes over 5,600 global analysts covering 27,000 companies

New Search Experience

What it is: A faster and more intuitive search experience. This includes content shortcut filters, redesigned results pane, and document previews.

Why it matters: The key to helping get you to insights faster is reducing the time it takes to search. The new search experience simplifies the search process and brings to the forefront content shortcuts to improve the accuracy of the search, as well as, help to decide which results make the most sense before diving in.

A lot easier to narrow my search by specific sources. The previous view made it hard to find the full content library. This is more intuitive.
