How Tagged Based Searches Work in the Onvia Platform

When Onvia adds a new project from a government agency our new proprietary technology reads the project and applies the appropriate tag(s) to the project. What makes this really cool is that the tagging system uses a sophisticated algorithm to apply the appropriate tags based on the essence of the project. Machine learning helps to organize the project data so the end result for our clients is not only more leads, but the most relevant leads for their business.
