What is Quill
Businesses Need Insight, Not Just Numbers
Quill gives you the power to move beyond the numbers and leverage true insight. Quill is an artificial intelligence engine that generates, evaluates and gives voice to ideas as it discovers them in the data.
Quill imports your data and builds an appropriate narrative structure to meet the goals of your audience.
Business decisions no longer rely on data from a single source. Companies are spending millions of dollars on people, processes and technologies designed to integrate, warehouse, or export data from a variety of sources in an effort to obtain a comprehensive view of their business challenges and to uncover meaningful insights.
Quill applies complex and sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms that extract the key facts and interesting insights from the data and transforms them into stories. The resulting content is as good or better than your best analyst, and is produced at a scale and speed only possible with technology – technology that is now patented.

Quill creates the appropriate narrative structure to achieve specific communication goals. Some readers require high level summaries while others need in-depth analysis. The chosen structure guides the next steps in the process of writing the story.
Quill derives facts, scores, rankings and custom lists utilizing high performance data analytics. It examines the data and identifies trends, relationships, correlations, inflection points, exceptions and more, to establish the set of facts used to build a story.
Quill uses the facts and relationships between them to make judgements and draw conclusions. During this phase, Quill works to answer the questions that are important to the reader.
Next, Quill evaluates the facts and conclusions it has discovered and determines which are more (or less) relevant than others. Only the most important interpretations are included in the final output for any given story.
Finally, Quill’s natural language, visualization and rendering engines generate the text, graphics, layouts and styles for each story. During this process, Quill incorporates variability, expressiveness and uniqueness into every element, as if it were written by a skilled writer or analyst.
These data insights can be delivered on demand or on a schedule (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly) in your chosen format, including mobile, HTML, dashboard annotations or any document type. For mobile devices, whether via email or app, narrative content is ideally suited for consumption; much better than traditional methods like spreadsheets or graphs. Also, API options are available for integration with your existing systems and applications.
You may think you know business intelligence, but Quill’s process of deriving data and developing narratives is unlike any other business intelligence platform on the market. Learn more about the potential for transformative insight as it applies to your industry or need.
Quill delivers stories that are understandable, precise and expressive. Individuals benefit from sophisticated analysis they wouldn’t be able to perform themselves. The stories are:
Organically constructed or guided by predefined structure
Historical, predictive, and advisory language
Personalized by audience perspective (word choice, location, reading level)
Visualizations to emphasize key aspects of the narrative
Flexible in voice, tone and language, as well as layout and design
Tailored for consumption medium (mobile, desktop, email, dashboard)
