A New Way to Scour the Web
What with blogs, social networks, and 24/7 news sites, finding and sorting through information about clients, competitors, and prospects on the Web can become a full-time job. A new service called Workstreamer does the job for you. You create a free account on the Workstreamer website and name companies you would like to follow. Then, the service scours a vast amount of online sources, including Facebook, Twitter, and SEC filings, for mentions of those companies; Workstreamer filters out junk like coupons. Links to the information appear in your account in real time, sorted by company, as well as in daily e-mail updates.
