Great customer service has long been a competitive advantage for any business. But for online merchants, that can take up valuable extra time, as customers wonder where their packages are.

Semantinet’s slogan, “Information into knowledge” aptly describes their work. Semantinet is building a giant information graph of people, places and concepts linked together by whichever relationships are detected from both structured and unstructured data sources on the web.
