YouScan was awarded by G2 Crowd as a "High Performer" in two categories, "Social media monitoring" and "Social media analytics." The High Performer title is awarded to business software that is highly rated by users, but hasn't achieved the international Market Presence of Leaders.
G2 Crowd is a business solutions review platform that uses proprietary Grid® Scoring Methodology to rate businesses based on user reviews, as well as data collected online and on social media. G2 Crowd analysts developed a unique algorithm (v3.0) to calculate user satisfaction and market presence scores.

We have a powerful product, a strong team, major brands and agencies among our clients, and a world-class level of expertise. There are hundreds of social media monitoring vendors on the international market, but only a few can offer AI-powered solutions such as image recognition and social media trend detection.
YouScan is currently working on improvements to its Visual Insights feature and soon will offer an expanded and detailed list of detected objects and scenes. For example, instead of just “activities”, the system will recognize “running”, “eating”, “jumping” etc. Or the software will be able to differentiate the age groups between toddlers, children, youth, adults and seniors.
