The artificial intelligence of the Yva platorm uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) to recognize the presence of sentiment, positive, negative or conflicts in communications between employees.

The information contained in text messages is extremely sensitive to the business of our customers. With this awareness, we deliberately designed Yva in such a way that all text analytics are implemented as a classification. The system has a task: to understand whether the text contains a set of high-level features that can give useful information about the performance of individual employee of the company, about their contribution to a healthy atmosphere in the team, about the actual (not nominal) place of the employee in the business processes of the enterprise.

Yva is designed in such a way that text messages are not stored in the platform, so they cannot be read or stolen, they only exist in the information systems of the customer's company. It is absolutely safe to trust Yva to “read” the text.

We have developed and patented a two-step procedure for working with text. Thanks to it, we can use already trained classifiers or train new ones even without the text itself.

In the context of a company's business processes, the "Message sentiment" assessment helps to determine the health of an entire organization. And it is only the informative part of messages that is being analyzed. It means that all greetings and courtesies are not considered as factors affecting the positive or negative sentiment of the message as a whole.

If there is both negative and positive in one sentence, Yva considers the entire sentence to be negative.

Examples of negative:

  • The deadline is approaching, but nothing is ready.

  • You didn't answer the request.

  • You exceeded the term of contact payment.

Examples of positive:

  • I am up for communication, for me it is always interesting to talk to colleagues.

  • In general, the expressions are good, we want to cooperate.

  • I hope we will go on at this pace and finish everything timely and on a high level.

Metrics of an employee communication with sentiment are divided into three blocks:

  • Metrics for all contacts, that is, any communication of an employee,

  • Metrics for internal contacts, that is, communication within the organization,

  • Metrics for external contacts, that is, communication with people outside the organization.

For each block of metrics Yva calculates:

The Number of received emails with sentiment

The number of incoming emails of an employee with sentiment without taking into account mailings and automatic notifications.

The Share of received emails with sentiment

The share of incoming emails with sentiment, excluding mailings and automatic notifications.

The Number of sent emails with sentiment

The number of outcoming emails of the employee with sentiment, excluding emails that are marked as automatic.

The Share of sent emails with sentiment

The share of outcomingemails with sentiment, excluding mailings and automatic notifications.

Additionally you can receive following metrics using our Reports API:

The Average response time to emails with sentiment

The average response time of an employee to incoming emails with sentiment when taking into account only those emails that the employee responded to.
Weekly calculation: all outgoing emails of the user for the week are taken. For each of these emails, it is checked which of them were responses to the incoming previous email with sentiment. For each message that is a response, the difference in HH:MM:SS is taken between the moment of sending the response and the moment of receiving the message. For a week, the median of all the values obtained is taken. Emails that are marked as automatic are excluded from the calculation.
Calculation for a period of more than a week: the median of weekly values.

The Percent of responses to emails with sentiment

The percentage of incoming emails with sentiment that the employee has responded to.
Weekly calculation: all incoming emails with sentiment of the user are taken into account. For each of these emails, it is checked whether there was a response to this email. This gives +1 response message.
Sent emails that are marked as automatic are excluded from the list of response emails.
The metric is considered as "the number of response emails" / "the total number of emails with sentiment received".
Calculation for a period longer than a week: the median of weekly values.
