Jinfo Subscription Report

Vable is a current awareness platform that can automate the monitoring, gathering, indexing and sharing of information from public and subscription news sources. It is used by those in information-intensive organisations, with the majority of users being librarians and information managers. The platform started out as a way to improve the exchange of legal information within law firms and was first reviewed by Jinfo in 2014, when it was known as Linex Systems. It has since grown into a system for managing every aspect of current awareness, across all industry sectors and is a useful addition to the modern information professional's toolkit.
