With the rise of the Internet, changing information usage patterns and an ever-increasing demand for on-demand content, many organizations have cut back their information professional teams—some to almost nothing.

Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2013

InfoDesk has announced it will continue to expand its editorial services team in 2013 to support InfoMonitor and AgencyWatch, its newly-launched competitive and government intelligence, news and media monitoring solutions.

“Not long ago, nearly every company or government agency had one or more librarians on staff to make sure their employees had access to the specialized information they needed,” said Sterling Stites, CEO of InfoDesk. “With the rise of the Internet, changing information usage patterns and an ever-increasing demand for on-demand content, many organizations have cut back their information professional teams—some to almost nothing,” said Stites,

For more than a decade, InfoDesk has been providing tools and technology to corporate and government clients to help them manage and distribute news and competitive intelligence internally. Several years ago InfoDesk began offering custom editorial services to help its clients augment their news and competitive intelligence efforts.

“Since 2010 InfoDesk has been steadily building a robust team of highly experienced, MLS-credentialed information professionals to service the needs of our corporate and government clients,” said Stites. “There simply is no technology that can possibly substitute for the years of training, education and experience these highly skilled research professionals have to offer.”

Last year InfoDesk launched InfoMonitor, a custom-edited daily news and media monitoring service designed to meet the most exacting needs of its corporate clients. This year, InfoDesk launched AgencyWatch, a new, once-daily government intelligence, news and media monitoring service designed specifically to meet the changing information needs and demands of government leaders.

Both InfoMonitor and AgencyWatch depend on the skills and experience of the editorial team. Team members work closely with clients at every stage of the process to help analyze information needs, identify and recommend the most appropriate information resources, and develop complex search queries to filter information effectively. Monitoring a wide array of specialized content sources, the team sifts through countless news reports to identify, select and summarize the most relevant information and deliver it every work day at a client-selected time.

“The value that our editorial team adds for our corporate and government clients is immeasurable,” said Stites. Many corporations and government agencies no longer have the internal bandwidth in-house to keep pace with the deluge of information, he said, adding, “With the help of our editorial team, InfoDesk is stepping up to provide a variety of truly bespoke information solutions.”

To introduce InfoMonitor and AgencyWatch, InfoDesk will be offering online demonstrations for groups and individuals as well as complimentary sample briefings upon request. For more information visit infodesk.com or call 914-798-5940 (US) or +44 (0) 20-8350-3398 (UK).
