Moncton, New Brunswick-based sentiment analysis leader Lymbix announced this week that they have re-released a new version of their ToneCheck software as an email add-in for Microsoft Outlook. The seamless integration with Outlook is fueled by a sophisticated engine for analyzing words and phrases. Matt Eldridge, co-founder and CEO at Lymbix said that ToneCheck has "essentially become a personal sounding board for the digital age."
This newer iteration of ToneCheck is a stripped down version of the original product for email which functions in near real-time with more precise sentiment analysis and the removal of intrusive layers of pop-ups.
What makes ToneCheck so useful is that it aims to improve e-mail correspondence by helping users understand the implicit tone of their words before they hit “send.” The company claims that ToneCheck is as intuitive to use as spell-check and grammar-check. The sentiment analysis tool proofreads draft emails and warns you if any words or phrases in your draft might be perceived as aggressive, nasty or any other negative emotion.
The company has also recently announced $2.4 million in funding and signed a LOI with Sherpa Software to deliver ToneCheck for Lotus.
Heather Anne Ritchie, Marketing Communications Manager at Lymbix will be speaking on a panel at the SXSW conference next week to talk about what makes Canada such a hotbed for technology and innovation.
