InfoDesk Introduces InfoMonitor: Competitive Intelligence Made Easy
InfoDesk announced the launch of InfoMonitor, a new once-daily competitive intelligence, news and media monitoring service. InfoMonitor brings an organization all the important news and information, from all its preferred sources in one custom-edited, easily digestible daily email update. InfoMonitor can be delivered to your email inbox, web portal, or RSS feed.
InfoMonitor combines InfoDesk’s state-of-the-art technology with a professional editor’s review, enabling it to scan and filter thousands of news sources—including all types of subscription, web, and social media sources—to deliver only the most relevant clips, without redundancy.
Sterling Stites, president and CEO of InfoDesk, explained the difference between InfoMonitor and other services: “It’s our editors. We have put together a team of highly skilled and experienced librarians and information professionals that review, select, and summarize all the content in every InfoMonitor update.” He added, “Every story we include is there for a reason.”
In addition to professionally written summaries with links to original sources, each news item includes content rating buttons that allow readers to vote on the relevancy of each article. These interactive rating buttons reinforce the relevancy of each story. Email links allow users to send articles to colleagues with one easy click.
InfoDesk just released a new video to introduce InfoMonitor. To learn more, download a complimentary 6-page InfoMonitor Sample CI Brief or request a free demo.
For more than 12 years, InfoDesk has helped some of the largest multinational corporations, top government agencies and media companies integrate, deliver, and share large volumes of information more effectively. InfoDesk is based in Tarrytown, NY with offices in London and Washington, DC.
