Frequently Asked Questions
What is Mergeflow?
Mergeflow is a powerful data collection and analytics software, designed for analyzing R&D and business information. Through natural language processing and machine learning, Mergeflow automates many of the information gathering and organizing tasks that a research analyst would perform manually.

Does the trial include all features?
Will I be charged when my trial is up?
No. We do not ask for your credit card up front, so you will only be charged when you decide to buy a subscription.

Do I get a tax-deductible invoice when I subscribe to the Innovator or Analyst plan?
