EDYT™ is a National Science Foundation startup providing browser-based, collaborative authoring/reviewing software for enterprises. It’s similar to Google Docs adding a layer of semantic analysis including automatic validation, auto-completion, and cross-linking for particular subject domains, provides compound document support, comes integrated with popular case management systems, and can be extensively customized. Our current focus is helping government patent offices improve their examination process through the creation of TeamPatent, a customized version of Edyt.

The Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology which drives Edyt’s semantic analysis can easily support other subject areas. In the past Edyt has been embedded at the core of a journalism startup and demonstrated for use in electronic medical records. As our development bandwidth increases we will be engaging in other customer requested projects spanning construction management, medical regulatory filings, and insurance compliance. Please contact us for more information about how Edyt can transform your enterprise or facilitate the creation of a highly differentiated product.
