News Alerts

A recent article on the Virtual Chase does a nice job of explaining some of the available options (and pros and cons of some of these options) for news aggregators which can collect and deliver news to individuals via e-mail or other mechanisms.

Another service I have worked with in the past is They also scan the world of publications for articles about companies of interest to particular clients, apply filters to the content if needed, and then provide similar types of targeted company news information to subscribers.
