Detailed Description


Inform provided related content for a broad spectrum of online media and information companies including newspapers, magazines, non-traditional publishers, search engines, and portals. Clients included world-class publishers such as The Washington Post, CNN, NBC, IDG, Newsweek, The Economist, and Conde Nast.

The company supported editors and publishers by searching, organizing and linking content so customer sites could present even greater editorial breadth — and win more readers.

While processing millions of pages of content, Inform automatically identified people, companies, places, organizations and products as they appeared in the news; continuously delivering real time, editorially accurate content to the world's top publishers. Inform's journalistic technology understood context and recognized subtle differences in meaning, providing clients with a reliable source of related articles and related media, as well as smart, inline links and topic pages.
