Uphold the 4 Cs of Smart Moderation

SaaM ensures your community guidelines are upheld to the utmost precision with the 4 Cs of Smart Moderation:


SaaM’s algorithms automatically block unwanted comments more effectively and cost efficiently than human moderation


There are millions of ways commenters can hide spam, abusive language and profanity. SaaM accurately uncovers unwanted content/language and blocks it


With automatic moderation around the clock, users can engage in ongoing civil interactions in real time without fear of online abuse or harassment


SaaM reduces the time and expense of human moderation, while supporting the growth of online engagement and the community


Moderation is top of mind as media companies aim to drive engagement, manage their community, and create a positive user experience on-site and across social media. Up until recently, staying on top of comments and growing community engagement has proven to be a burden — but that doesn’t need to be the case with SaaM.
