Back in 2009, it was quite challenging for companies to instantly collect brand mentions and get in-depth analytics based on this data. This was the moment when YouScan was created - a pioneering social media listening tool.
With the continuous improvement of the product, YouScan quickly became the #1 solution for social media monitoring in the Eastern Europe. The team started to work with world-renowned brands and agencies, such as Nestle, Unilever, Ipsos, and Samsung.
In 2018, YouScan introduced its breakthrough image recognition technology called ‘Visual Insights’, and the same year the team decided to conquer the global market.
Global recognition didn’t take long. In 2019, Gartner recognized YouScan as ‘Cool AI Vendor for Marketing’ and Saas Advisor named YouScan a Visual Analysis Category Winner in Martech-Challenges.
YouScan continued to expand and opened offices in New York, Mexico City, Limassol, and Warsaw. Two years in a row - 2020 & 2021 - it received the MarTech Breakthrough Award in the "Best Social Media Monitoring Software" category.
Today, the YouScan team is committed to bringing the best-in-class AI technologies to companies across the world, making it easier to listen to their customers every day.
