Dozens of major global brands are already using Lithium Social Intelligence to gain accurate insights and achieve real business results including Autodesk, Cisco, TomTom and many others.

Lithium Social Intelligence uses a state-of-the-art big data architecture that allows brands to analyze billions of monthly social interactions, delivering results in seconds. It operates in the cloud at web scale, using advanced algorithms developed by in-house social scientists to help brands focus on the key metrics that matter.
