SETU Software Systems Pvt. Ltd.
2ERICA Software Systems (P) Ltd. is an Information Access Technology focused startup based out of Hyderabad, India. SETU is an acronym for Search and Extraction Technologies Unlimited. We are a core research based technology company primarily focused in the areas of search and information access technologies using text and natural language processing.
SETU, which means bridge in Sanskrit, was founded in 2008 by a few researchers and faculty members of IIIT- Hyderabad, with a vision to bridge information access barriers by taking their technology to the society. The company was spun out of one of India’s premier research centers – Search and Information Extraction Lab (SIEL) in IIIT Hyderabad after years of R&D; in the areas of natural language and text processing.
Our technologies in most of the cases are on par with the state of the art and in many cases extend far beyond the state of the art. We are among the very few companies in India that are focusing on plying technologies related to Indian languages, search, semantic web, summarization and sentiment analysis. Our leading edge products address enterprise customers’ needs to search, extract, and summarize large volumes of human language content.
We received the Best Product Startup Award, in the Enterprise category, in 2010 and the Jury – Special Mention Award, in the Consumer Product category, in 2011 presented by the prestigious ‘Information Technology & Services Industry Association of Andhra Pradesh (ITsAP – Advantage AP)’. We were also listed in “75 Startups You Can Bet On” released by CYBERMEDIA’s DARE Magazine, on June 1, 2010.
