Blazing new trails

At Beacon Informatics, we're working to create new tools that help us analyze business. The Internet is everywhere now, and it's become a treasure trove for consumer feedback. Consumers write millions of words in product feedback online every day. That's where we come in: we design our products to harness these communications, keeping you in touch with ever-changing feedback and a step ahead of the competition.

Beacon Informatics is leading the way in cutting-edge algorithms and tools that can help your business grow. We're experts in machine learning, text analytics, and information retrieval, and we use these skills to build some of the most advanced solutions on the market. We're also focused on communication: advanced shouldn't mean incomprehensible. Even though we're using the latest techniques, we're always thinking about how we can package our insights to make them clear and relatable. Let's start working together.



TAMLET, our flagship product, is advanced text analytics software for analyzing consumer feedback in online posts, specifically tuned to industry-specific linguistic characteristics. It's designed to comb through vast datasets of online posts, such as product reviews or social media posts, and prioritize content to profile competing products. TAMLET uses a machine-learned model to key in on "smoke terms," or specific words and phrases consumers use in online posts that indicate key aspects of their experience. TAMLET can be used to differentiate products' strengths and weaknesses and clarify their standing relative to the competition.

TAMLET's applications include monitoring online posts for consumers' mentions of safety hazards. Safety hazards reports are rare — just about 1% of product reviews — but their repercussions are dangerous and costly. Detecting safety hazards is complicated, and you shouldn't have to read thousands of posts to get to the few you need most. With TAMLET, the most relevant posts rise to the top.


  • Advanced scoring

    Our term-based scoring algorithms rapidly prioritize hundreds of thousands of online posts, bringing most important feedback to the top.

  • Data filtering

    TAMLET's query builder easily narrows your search down to what matters most to you. Search by brand, product, date range, star rating, and more.

  • Aggregation

    TAMLET compares our smoke term scores across brands, products, or models quickly, helping you make sense of the bigger picture.

  • Hazard diagnostics

    TAMLET assesses language to determine the root cause behind its findings. For example, safety hazards may relate to overheating, leaking, or shattered glass.

  • Markup

    TAMLET highlights smoke terms within the bodies of online posts, drawing your eyes to the concerns that are most important to read.

  • Compatibility

    TAMLET works with common file types like *.CSV, and it's stand-alone software. If you have Windows 7, 8, or 10, then you're already ready to go.
