Pumatech's Mind-it Delivers Breaking News to Infinet Users

InfiNet will first offer Mind-it as an optional feature module of its Real Classifieds service. Current newspapers publishing online classified ads through this service include Newsday and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. With Pumatech's Mind-it technology, InfiNet will provide end users with greater control over both the type of content they receive and how they receive it. Mind-it's unique user-driven personalization capability empowers users to decide which portion of a page to track, how often to receive updates, where to be notified about the change, and when to stop receiving updates. When users sign up for Mind-it on one of the supported InfiNet news or publishing sites, they can select to have their alerts delivered via e-mail or wireless device. In addition, users can determine the specific wireless device on which they would like to receive their alerts by supplying service provider information and a telephone number. To sign up for e-mail alerts on their desktop, users simply supply their e-mail address and indicate if they want the e-mail to arrive in HTML or text format.

"InfiNet runs software from multiple vendors for a large number of high-volume Web sites. We needed one scalable solution that could track information across many platforms and seamlessly provide the user with one system to manage their alerts," said Alan Dawkins, CTO of InfiNet. "After a deep technical evaluation, we found Mind-it to be a great solution."
