Introduction to ParallelDots Excel Plugin

Our Excel Add-in provides the state-of-the-art Natural Language Processing capabilities to your analysis without the need to write code (which you need in case you want to use the APIs).

The Add-in also comes in handy when you need to run analysis in batches and discover insights in them (tweets from a social campaign, earnings call transcripts, open-ended user feedback etc.). You can export all your data from any BI tool you use in xlsx (or csv format) and install our plugin to annotate the data with sentiment, emotions, intent etc. and analyse them from the comfort of your spreadsheet in seconds.
