Dialog Completes Major Upgrade of Alerting Features
Dialog Corp. has announced that it has completed major enhancements to the Alerts service it offers to users of its DialogClassic, DialogClassic Web, and DialogWeb services. The company said that the upgrades are now available and that there is no change in the fee to maintain Alerts.
The enhancements include the following:
Paul Colucci, Dialog senior vice president of product development, said: "For many of our customers, the ability to utilize Alerts is essential to their ability to best put the information we offer to work. It means that important news and competitive intelligence, for example, can be delivered directly to their desktops without them having to sign on and search for it."
- The ability to run single Alerts across multiple files of content sources, including those containing intellectual property information such as patents and trademarks
- Automatic removal of duplicates of the same documents retrieved from multiple files through Alerts
- More robust options for the delivery of documents containing images
- Improved scheduling, with a new option to specify when the Alert profile is to be run
