LAC Group Introduces Library as a Service

LAC Group, an information management solutions provider, launched its Library as a Service (LaaS) platform. LaaS includes a flexible, configurable, and on-demand suite of tools to help law firms and corporations conduct research, integrate an ILS, streamline research management, and more. It also offers services such as traditional on-site staffing with LAC Group’s network of researchers, librarians, and information specialists in North America and the U.K.

The automatic listening platform Manzama will power LaaS with its competitive intelligence engine. Manzama classifies and ranks industry blogs, news sites, and social media so customer organizations have relevant information for their business development and practice strategies.

“LAC’s partnership with Manzama creates real strategic advantages for both companies,” says Tyler Leshney, LAC Group’s EVP of corporate strategy and development. “Coupling the power of Manzama’s search and classification algorithms with LAC’s distributed labor pool creates a unique, curated offering that we think will redefine the competitive intelligence playing field.”
