The EFA Platform simplifies the entire research process.

The platform captures, validates and uploads analyst models to a database, making them consumable throughout your organization and beyond. 

The EFA Platform generates research reports at the touch of a button and encompasses a configurable workflow engine, which ensures reports receive appropriate sign-offs before EFA disseminates them to clients, CRM solutions, websites and research aggregators. EFA’s intuitive Server API makes developing custom applications, e.g. for the web, tablet or mobile quick and easy.

With EFA as your platform you will produce more and higher quality research, reduce costs and extend your client reach.
