Portland, OR (PRWEB) August 28, 2007
Attensa, Inc., the leading developer of RSS software for Enterprise 2.0 introduced new enterprise-quality RSS feed readers for Windows, Mac and Microsoft Outlook today. The three new Attensa feed readers are built using consistent AttentionStream™ technologies, architecture and user experience to provide business users with a complete set of tools for receiving, managing and reading critical business information delivered through RSS, Atom and XML web feeds.
Attensa's enterprise RSS feed readers for Windows, Mac and Microsoft Outlook can be downloaded at no charge immediately from the Attensa Web site http://www.attensa.com.
The new Attensa feed readers are designed specifically for enterprise RSS use. Feature sets and functionality were developed using in-depth feedback from IT professionals and corporate information workers in organizations where tens of thousands of knowledge workers are using Attensa feed readers today.
Choice of "River of News" views including AttentionStream view that automatically pulls articles that are most important to the forefront of the user's attention.
Attensa's unique AttentionStream Learning Engine observes and learns from the user's feed and article reading behaviors and works on the principle that past and present actions predict future behavior. Deep analytics of article content are matched to a personalization system that automatically prioritizes and recommends new articles that will be of interest to the reader.
This ongoing analysis of AttentionStream data includes the time and frequency that feeds are accessed, and analyzes which articles are read, deleted and ignored. Attensa displays feeds in a prioritized list based on the likelihood that they will be of interest to the reader. Priorities are constantly refined as the continuous stream of user attention is processed. Enterprise RSS users can choose how they want subscriptions and articles presented. Subscriptions can be displayed in a "River of News" view that simulates a single news feed, regardless of how many RSS feeds the user has subscribed to.
Consistent architecture provides fast feed and article loading and streamlined synchronization with the Attensa Feed Server.
The new Attensa feed readers use a consistent architecture to insure quick access to feeds and articles and accurate and reliable synchronization with the Attensa Feed Server. The Attensa Feed Server channels feeds to users and groups behind the firewall and makes it easy to create a secure, managed, scalable enterprise RSS feed environment. Attensa's unique AttentionStream™ synchronization ties the server, desktop, web, instant messaging and mobile RSS reader clients together so articles read, filed and deleted are continuously up to date.
Consistent user experience and updated interface makes managing and reading feeds easy while simplifying training
