The FreePint Topic Series: Beyond Aggregation launched this month and runs until the end of November. Reviews of key news aggregator and awareness tools form a key part of the Series which brings eight product reviews in addition to M-Adaptive already published, plus three mini reviews. Series producer Andrew Grave also previews the articles and webinars in the series, covering areas such as customised integrations of news content and news awareness technology installations.

External news plays an important role across many areas of an organisation and this has been reflected in the high number of responses to the FreePint Survey: News Needs and Preferences 2013. The survey, currently in its sixth year, has now closed and we had responses from over 200 readers. You can read Robin Neidorf’s analysis of the preliminary results here; her full analysis will be published as part of the Series.
We’ve already published articles examining how legal firm RPC’s news aggregation solution has given it an edge over its peers, a comprehensive market map listing all the key solutions available and a full review of M-Brain’s media monitoring solution M-Adaptive.

A key backbone of the series is our range of rigorous product reviews covering a wide variety of aggregation solutions. Reports lined up include:
With our formal research protocol for product reviews, we're also able to prepare and publish a comparative matrix on our reviewers' results. Every news-related product we've reviewed within the past 12 months will be included on the matrix, enabling you to make point-by-point comparisons on research conclusions on areas such as interface, search tools, outputs and content.
FreePint Report: Survey News Needs & Preferences 2013
Finally, we'll publish the FreePint Report: Survey News Needs & Preferences 2013 - our sixth annual review of this dynamic sector.
In addition to all these articles and reports, we're also planning to bring you webinars on:
More information on our webinars will be available later this month.
