About Cataphora
Cataphora’s technical staff comprises experts in a variety of fields and methodologies, including software engineering, mathematics, linguistics, sociology, and information retrieval. We constantly strive to invent new technologies to help our customers, and to improve the technologies we already have.

Cataphora’s founding technology was invented to address the real business problem of making sense of fast growing volumes of information that were communicated in ever shorter messages across an increasing variety of channels. We have continued to build on our initial ideas and extend them. For example, we have since invented and patented high-performance search technology that powers our own Cataphora Query Engine and we continually develop sophisticated analytics to provide our customers with ever better insights into their digital data.
