Social media discovery is no longer enough

The challenge five years ago was real-time discovery. Today the explosion of misinformation and disinformation in social media makes it difficult to know what's actually real. Once you discover a possible news event, you still need to invest the time and effort to verify it.

Factal is the first company to combine lightning-fast discovery with trusted verification into a single platform. By knowing the facts, you respond faster and smarter without stretching your resources.

Know what’s happening right now — precisely where it’s happening

Factal detects, verifies and publishes breaking events faster than any news organization. But that’s just the beginning.

Incidents are precisely geolocated and compared against your company’s global locations. In an instant, you’ll know if a high-risk incident is developing in close proximity to offices, stores, supply lines or company events — even down to the meter.
