Abstract

What's new and improved since our last product review of NewsEdge in 2016?

Item

There's more than one reason some of the world's largest news media companies use the premium current awareness platform NewsEdge - and, in our recent new product review, we look at what they are.

Jinfo last reviewed Acquire Media's global news and delivery web platform NewsEdge in 2016. And since Acquire Media was acquired by NEWSCYCLE Solutions earlier this year, we wanted to have a look at what's changed.

Why this award-winning product stands out

Award-winning NewsEdge is one of the most popular subscription products for current awareness, with its ability to offer real-time news from thousands of premium subscription providers, plus web content and social media.

And with plans to build and increase NewsEdge's presence across Europe, Acquire Media hopes that its acquisition by NEWSCYCLE will only improve its offerings. 

Our reviewer, Jan Knight, explains: 

"The scope and diversity of (NewsEdge's) content are impressive, and readers will recognise many familiar names among its premium news sources. 

"NewsEdge enables users to find and access information that is relevant to them at that time and share it with others in their organisation in ways that make sense to the readers, ranging from alerts to newsletters." 

Jinfo was impressed with NewsEdge's mobile offering which has been in place since 2017. Its entire functionality is available for Android and Apple phones, saving employees time and making working on-the-go so much more accessible.

Another way the platform shows its forward thinking is its strong data visualisation: with so much content available to us nowadays, visual aids make information much easier to digest.
