Library as a Service Scenario – Curated Alerts

December 18, 2013

Home Blog Library as a Service Scenario – Curated Alerts
The Best Information, Focused by Topic and Delivered on Schedule

What if you needed to follow a specific practice area regularly? What if you were asked to set up alerts on client activities, trends, new business opportunities or potential markets? What if you are already providing alerts but don’t have the time to create and manage them because the research you are being asked to do takes more time than the day has hours? What if you could find more time in your day for what’s important?


Why is an alert service worth promoting within your organization? Because:

  • It’s not information overload. It’s filter failure. ~ Clay Shirky, educator
  • Interruptions caused by information overload cost U.S. companies $650 billion a year. ~ Basex Whitepaper, “Information Overload: We Have Met the Enemy and He is Us”
  • 43% (of information consumers) think that important decisions are delayed and their abilities to make decisions are affected as a result of having too much information. ~ Reuters “Dying for Business ” report

Our research analysts have experience creating and managing both basic and curated news alerts, can work with you to understand your organizations needs and expectations, and will develop the filters that eliminate the noise that comes with too much information. They will assist you in keeping your organization informed with in-depth, up-to-the-minute information on any topic.

Let us help you determine the best way to monitor, evaluate and deliver alerts that meet your business needs. Using your resources and/or resources available on the open web, we can handle everything from set-up to dissemination. More importantly, we can support your organization’s alert service so you can concentrate on other critical tasks at hand.
