Frost & Sullivan Names LinguaSys Exceptional Early Stage Investment in the USA

Frost & Sullivan announced today that it has presented LinguaSys, Inc., a leader in multilingual natural language processing and analytical solutions, with its 2013 North American Early Stage Investment Opportunity Award in the Internet Software and Services Industry.

Citing the challenge of leveraging the power of social media with the ability to offer analytical solutions in multiple languages across geographies, Frost & Sullivan Sr. Research Analyst, Renganathan Krishnamurthy stated, “The diversity of languages makes it even more difficult for firms to reach customers who are separated by language barriers, and the effectiveness of the solution is determined by the correct interpretation of the semantics of the message. The uniqueness of the solution to gather multiple social media networks across a spectrum of languages becomes essential and serves as an indicator of the product differentiation capabilities of the firm in comparison with the competition.”

“One of the key success factors for LinguaSys is its intellectual property,” continued Krishnamurthy. “The firm has two pending patents. These patents, along with its software solutions, enable LinguaSys to add additional language packages within a span of four months. Frost & Sullivan appreciates the fact that this delivery is about one-third the industry average time. Additionally, an effective indicator of the firm’s business capabilities can be determined by analyzing the quality and overall expertise of the management team, where LinguaSys excels.”

“We are very excited to be recognized as a major new player with such outstanding potential in this field, where many of us have lived for over a decade with other companies,” said Brian Garr, CEO of LinguaSys. “The timing of this award could not be better as we explore strategic opportunities, including our next round of financing.”

Frost & Sullivan used the following criteria to benchmark LinguaSys’ performance against key human language technology competitors for the Early Stage Investment Opportunity Award:

• Strength of Intellectual Property

• Experience and Expertise of Management Team (successful track record, ability to execute, industry experience)

• Funding History, Strength and Quality of Other Investors

• Market Growth and Positioning

• Product Differentiation Capabilities

• Expansion Strategy
