FirstRain Adds Executives and LinkedIn Access to Business Web Monitoring
FirstRain added people to the business intelligence types you can monitor. This means you can now search for and monitor executives, find single-click connections to your LinkedIn network at any company, easily link to an executive’s LinkedIn profile page, and access its rapidly expanding collection of key info on thousands of top executives.
With these new capabilities, users can do the following:
- Find executive information when you mouse-over the People section of the company brief page, on any company you wish to monitor. You'll see a summary of the Business Web intelligence about them, including quick access to their LinkedIn profile pages. It’s early days, so you'll find some executives have more web intelligence than others, but FirstRain be expanding this collection rapidly over the next few months.
- Instantly see your connections at any company from the new LinkedIn “In my network” link, found in the Company Profile section of a Company Brief.
- Search for executives and add an executive to a monitor, so the latest news featuring that person is reported in your FirstRain email briefs.
- Plus, you can now bookmark items of interest and publish them into your company portals, your social enterprise tools, and Outlook using FirstRain’s RSS tools.
