Moreover Brings Web Intelligence to Financial Industry Employees

First Industry-Specific Monitoring Service for Online News, Rumor

And Speculation to Deliver Breaking Information Directly to Company Intranets



Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Moreover.com, Inc.

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Moreover,
 recently named "Best Specialty Search Engine" by Search Engine Watch for its
 ability to track thousands of rapidly changing online information resources,
 today announced the availability of its Financial Industry Business
 Information Solution, previously available only to such pilot customers as
 CAN Re and LTP Trade.
     Designed to provide financial companies with efficient, unified access to
 breaking news on the sector -- including legislative developments and fresh
 company-specific buzz, commentary and analysis -- the Financial Industry
 Business Information Solution leverages Moreover's proprietary news engine and
 XML database to track, extract and deliver relevant business information. This
 information is culled from more than 2700 premium online sources, more than
 200-plus financial-specific sources and thousands of message boards and
 discussion forums and delivered to the corporate intranet within 15 minutes of
 its first appearance online. In addition to the thousands of sources included
 in its Financial Business Information Solution, Moreover will index any new
 intranet, extranet or Web site within 24 hours of customer request.
     According to Moreover CEO Nick Denton, financial companies have the most
 to lose by ignoring the full spectrum of online comment. "Information on the
 web moves so quickly that there's a huge information gap between the whir of
 the stock ticker and the front page of the Wall Street Journal," continued
 Denton. "Moreover's Financial Business Information Solution automatically
 delivers not only the top headlines but the obscure articles, web rumors, and
 online leaks that reveal the subterranean landscape of the business world."
     Moreover's Financial Information Solution is among the first in a suite of
 vertical offerings targeted towards information-intensive industries.
 Moreover's solutions enable companies to take full advantage of Web
 intelligence, the vast amount of transient digital information that flies
 through the public web undetected by search engines and traditional
 information services. By delivering this information to corporate intranets
 within minutes of its first appearance on the center or edges of the Net,
 Moreover helps companies respond to this information while it is still within
 action range. Inclusion of this comprehensive information in the intranet
 effectively supports marketing, sales, and strategic planning functions such
 as business development, prospect development and reputation management.
 Fleeting opportunities and advantages are not lost.
     According to Denton, Moreover's technology and expertise are particularly
 suited to the finance industry. "For finance professionals, speed is
 everything.  They need the right information, all the time, right away, and
 the fact is that there's really been no way for them to get it easily," said
 Denton. "We developed the Financial Information Solution to give professionals
 an efficient, effortless way to access breaking news and public opinion from
 every corner of the world and web."
 
     Solution Feature Set
     Moreover's Financial Industry Business Information Solution combines
 flexible technology and editorial processes to offer a cost-effective and
 easy-to-integrate solution for companies to protect their enterprise, while
 offering an efficient and centralized resource that can reduce research hours
 for documented productivity ROI. Key features include:
