advise  || Jenny advised him to go home.    

advice  || My advice is to see your doctor.

So it should be:

Advise companies to do something?

  • What companies? I've never heard of them, but if they're a 'thing' it should be 'advice companies' (advice is a thing, advise is an action) – marcellothearcane Jul 16 '17 at 20:28

Yes, advise is the verb to give advice. Advice-noun, advise-verb. Not much more can be said on this- you advise someone by giving advice.
