At Frrole, we believe in the power of data intelligence to transform lives.

Frrole's Social Intelligence Platform currently analyzes almost half a billion data units every month, using the derived insights to create solutions for brands, media and entertainment verticals. We take pride in our ability to answer fuzzy questions, when almost all traditional data analytics stops at providing statistical and keyword based answers.

We also believe that we are just getting started.

And that the ability of deep intelligence to impact industries is at best under-estimated.
