Alacra’s selection for the 7th annual EContent 100 list follows a September 2007 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting, an independent research firm, demonstrating that one of the company’s services, Alacra Concordance, offered users a three year 402 percent return on investment.

In addition, Alacra recently launched Alacra Content Marketplace, a new service that allows small and large publishers to post and sell business research and other content via the company’s Alacra Premium and the Alacra Store ( eCommerce services.
