The partnership provides information professionals with a solution that delivers more relevant information — tailored to the unique requirements of an individual employee, customer or partner — cost effectively throughout an entire enterprise.

January 18, 2012, Portland, Oregon — Attensa, an innovator of information management solutions, and Cindy Romaine, 2011 past-president of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) and principal of Romainiacs Intelligent Research, have formed a partnership to transform the
way businesses cope with information overload.

“From SLA’s Future Ready initiative, I learned first-hand how businesses of all sizes are suffering from information overload. The resulting paralysis significantly impacts productivity and impedes an organization’s ability to innovate and grow,” says Ms. Romaine. “I am partnering with Attensa because I believe they have the solution that information professionals and their customers have been clamoring for.”

“Research is confirming what we’ve long suspected,” Romaine added. In a recent study conducted by Intel Corporation, the company concluded that they lose $1 billion every year in lost productivity due to information overload. Similar research conducted by Basex, a recognized authority on the subject, concluded the total loss to U.S. firms could conservatively top $1 trillion annually.  Romaine continues: “I’m very impressed with Attensa’s approach to solving this huge problem. It’s very practical and delivers immediate business value.

One of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies is leading the fight against information overload by using Attensa StreamServer in their research and development efforts.

The problem: The research staff was being inundated by multiple alerts that were being delivered to them throughout the day.

The solution: Implemented Attensa StreamServer to aggregate alerts and deliver in a single email digest, organized by topic.

The result: A substantial reduction in emails combined with a more effective way to consume vital information.

“This is a great example of how Attensa optimizes a simple process resulting in a big impact. Our client describes the improvement in productivity as a ‘massive win’ for their organization,” notes Attensa’s Scott Quick, Vice President, Enterprise Solutions. “Attensa delivers measurable value that is both repeatable and scalable across an entire organization. We’re very excited about partnering with Romainiacs Intelligent Research, a recognized expert in information sciences.”
