About alva

We analyse the world's content, we link it to your performance, you make better decisions.

alva is a technology company that analyses publicly-available content to create decision-ready intelligence for the largest companies in the world.

Our monitoring and analysis offering consolidates in one platform all the content and analysis relevant to a company, its products, competitors, issues and stakeholders so that they can obtain simple, clear and relevant intelligence.

Our customers are professionals in Communications, Corporate Affairs, Marketing, Risk and Strategy departments.

We have offices in London and New York.

Background

alva was founded in 2010 with a very clear mission: to develop content intelligence and link it to business performance.

As a pioneering London based technology company free from the burden of legacy systems, high headcount and ingrained behaviours, alva's mission to help Customers make better informed decisions based on genuine intelligence and to consolidate expensive, segregated, reactive services into one global platform has become a reality.

Over the past 15 years, media and social media monitoring and analysis, as well as surveys and polls have all acted as limited proxies for reputation, providing incomplete and often expensive, contradictory views of a company's reputation. With only fragmented, low quality data previously available, companies and their executives have been poorly served by the market, often having to resort to instinct or intuition for critical decisions.

These traditional approaches are even less compatible in today's always-on, interconnected environment, characterised by vast amounts of publicly-available content.

alva is revolutionising this model. Our powerful content monitoring and analytics technology informs organisations what's happening in real time, 24/7, so they can reduce reputation risk, leverage competitive advantage and increase stakeholder support.

Over the past five years, alva has developed proprietary technology to provide intelligence through a blend of sophisticated, smart filtering and algorithmic scoring technology coupled with human expertise. Working with 35% of the FTSE100, alva monitors and analyses millions of pieces of publicly available content per day to provide decision-ready intelligence.
