Siia logo Alacra Pulse has been named a finalist in three categories for the upcoming CODiE Awards, sponsored by the Software & Information Industry Association. The categories are:

The CODiE award winners will be selected according to the votes of SIIA members and will be announced at a special Information Industry Summit dinner to be held January 26, 2010. Finalists were selected by a panel of judges who carefully reviewed each nominated product. What makes the CODiEs special is that they are peer awards; votes will be cast by others in the content industry.

In addition to Street Pulse (analyst and key blogger comments about companies), the Pulse platform now includes Deal PUlse (intelligence on M&A deals and rumours), Weak Pulse (distressed company events) and the just-introduced Chief Pulse, which features comments by corporate CEO, CFO, President, Division heads and other leaders.

Our clients tell us that Alacra Pulse is helping them address two distinct needs:

  1. Idea generation: give me a reason to call my client or prospect; and
  2. Current awareness: keep me from looking dumb in front of a client by not knowing key information

Alacra Pulse uses the freemium business model. A free version of Street Pulse is available at http://pulse.alacra.com. The Professional version includes Street, Deal, Weak and Chief Pulse and provides support for portfolios, alerting and advanced search.

We're currently working on a series of enhancements which will be rolled out shortly after the New Year. In the meantime, to learn more about Alacra Pulse, please contact our sales team
