Sophia Recommends Launched: Find a new book!

We're proud to announce that Sophia Recommends(tm) has been release in conjunction with our presence at BookExpo America 2013. Sophia Recommends is a browser add-on and a powerful cloud service that can recommend books to web users based on the content they are reading at that moment. You can read the press release about Sophia Recommends here.

About Sophia Recommends

In short, Sophia Recommends is an advanced discovery solution that automatically understands reader interests based on what they are currently consuming online. It places books of interest directly in front of readers in a native, non-intrusive, organic way, increasing the probability of purchase. It is available as a brower bookmarklet for the Chrome, FireFox and Microsoft Internet Explorer

Privacy Guaranteed

One of the major features that sets Sophia Recommends apart is that it makes recommendations based on the content that user is interested in, and not the user's behavioral data. No cookies are needed, and there is no need to track the users, since the recommendations are based on the one piece of data they have given, the URL of what they are reading.

Sophia For Publishing

Sophia Recommends is the first of many applications built on top of our Sophia for Publishing platform. We've recently published a data sheet on Sophia for Publishing, and download it from our website.
