Business Intelligence – The Challenges

  • How do I keep track of what’s happening in my client’s industry?

  • How do I keep abreast of recent developments in my area of expertise?

  • Where do I find the information that I need? 

  • When I find information, how do I know it can be trusted?

Director, Client Advisory Services

  • How do I meet the ever-growing demand for news and information from our Analysts?
  • How can I spend more time on in-depth analysis and less on providing ad hoc news services?
  • How do I increase the awareness and use of the premium content we purchase?

Research Assistant

Analysts spend too much of their own time searching for information, using multiple sources and tools. This doesn’t make good use of their skills, the available resources, or their time.

  • They often don’t know about all the premium content that’s available to them
  • They lack the time to constantly dig for valuable and incisive news
  • They often resort to unreliable sources, such as Google

In many organisations, research assistants manually curate and distribute newsletters. However, even skilled researchers can only manage 5 or 6 briefings each week.

  • Their time and resources limit the number of topics they are able to cover for the Analysts
  • They are increasingly asked to focus on in-depth research and analysis, but they don’t have the time

Analysts and consultants have the information they need only 56% of the time

Researchers spend 26% of their time searching for, consolidating and analyzing information

Intelligent News Profiles


 

Research assistants use Pulse to create selection profiles, specifying the type of content that is wanted for a specific news feed. They can use any number of keywords, topics, and concepts to select or (sometimes) exclude content.

For advanced researchers we offer unique methods of selecting content, including semantic analysis or sentiment analysis. Any number of news feeds and channels can be created, tested, and published. Once published, these profiled news feeds are updated continually as new content arrives.

Users just subscribe to the news feeds that interests them. And they choose how often they want updates.

Pulse delivers content via company portals, RSS, e-mail, or direct to user’s smartphones. So Analysts and Consultants have access to the latest news, whenever and wherever they want.

What is more, Pulse monitors which articles are read, and which sources are the most valuable to users. Which naturally strengthens your position when negotiating with content providers.
