How It Works
Our alert columns allow you to filter by individual companies, industries, subsectors and topics. In addition to viewing real-time alerts in our web and mobile app, you can opt to receive alerts via mobile push notifications, email or desktop notifications (Windows or OS X.)
Contix’s Viewpoints allows you to put an alert in context. How is the market reacting to the latest supply chain interruption in China? See movements in price, trading volume, social media discussion volume and sentiment in real time as alerts are being surfaced. Click on an alert to see the message(s) that triggered it, and drill down into information about message authors. Viewpoints is your real-time dashboard for news event analysis.
Flexible User Interface
Whether you prefer working with a Bloomberg-like dark theme or lighter UIs with white backgrounds, we can accommodate you with the click of a button. Column widths, ordering, filtering, themes – everything is customizable.Toggle
Contix is a cloud-native big data platform. We use proprietary natural language processing and statistical analysis engines to find differentiated news in a social media sphere producing over 500 million daily posts. Designed from the beginning to support multiple languages, locales and exchanges, Contix currently scans the entire Twitter firehose with additional social media sources coming online soon.
Unlike many players in the fin-tech space who tack on APIs as an afterthought, our platform was built from the ground up for integration and customization. We build all our own turnkey products on the same API we make available to customers.
Does your social media analytics platform know that Angela Ahrendts heads Apple’s retail operations, that LunarGlide is one of Nike’s top selling shoes and TYO:2502 is a reference to Asahi Breweries? We do. At Contix, we are focused on the complex field of discovering late-breaking, market-moving events that are relevant to investors.
We find differentiated news well ahead of the competition by employing domain-specific techniques that catch news items others miss.
