Valuescope GmbH, a specialist in semantic web business applications, today launched its online news aggregation suite Finsights in a closed beta version. Individuals who work in the financial technology industry, particularly in sales, research or executive management, are invited to participate in this beta.
Finsights’ core is a powerful semantic engine that focuses exclusively on the financial technology and services industry crawling over 500 of the top resources in that field. It allows individuals to keep on top of industry events such as mergers, product launches and new hires by consolidating them in one place. Users can monitor financial institutions and vendors by region, country or by name and they can filter search results using keywords. “Now, more than ever, staying on the pulse of the financial IT marketplace is critical for those who wish to survive in this current environment,” says Siegfried Lautenbacher, Executive Chairman of valuescope. “We created Finsights from the need to have all electronic news feeds in one easily accessible area and reacted to initial requests from various experts in the field to fill a gap in the informational landscape.”
Stefan Ki Müller, Managing Director of valuescope explains: “Our sophisticated natural language processing technology quickly and accurately identifies industry events, people, their job titles, and place of employment in real-time out of an overwhelming amount of irrelevant or redundant amount of web content. This is especially helpful for sales and marketing professionals who are searching for a contact person in middle management.”
Finsights is offered as an SaaS application (software as a service) and is optimized to run on Mozilla® Firefox 3.0.8. Compatibility with Internet Explorer and other browsers is anticipated for the first release of Finsights. Currently in closed beta Finsights is being trialed by a select group of experts from various areas of the financial industry sector. “The first response has been tremendous” says Stefan Ki Müller. “We’ve managed to get users from all over the globe from both the vendor and financial industry side which will allow us to get feedback from all perspectives”. People who are interested in contributing to the testing phase are encouraged to contact Stefan Ki Müller.
