|Low Effort Curation Process|
Need to open & read each document.
Skimmable view that makes rapid curation easy. Duplicates bucketed
|Qualifying a document is harder; as you need to click through to read each article.|
Gnowit extracts summaries that makes this process easier, and you can skim through at 10x the speed.
With Google Alerts, duplicated documents are not flagged and bucketed, so when you have a widely distributed article, you may need to qualify the same article hundreds of times in a single session, which takes a lot of time and effort!
|Intuitive Filters and Drill-down|
Instant filter feedback and contextual drill-down
|With Google Alerts, you need to set the queries and then wait for results.
When you set filters in Gnowit, you can immediately see the number of results, and the types of documents matching.
Manually do everything yourself.
Engineered workflow to support research, analysis, curation and reporting
|With Google Alerts, you need to copy/paste articles into documents or spreadsheets, or manually enter them into databases.
Gnowit provides you with an intuitive workflow: that helps you to easily share these briefings and your analysis with colleagues and stakeholders.
|Canadian Government Coverage|
Very sparse Government coverage (2 sites only!).
Comprehensive Government coverage.
Monitoring you can rely on
|If you are in the Government Relations field, Google Alerts only monitors a tiny subset of the Canadian Government information.
Gnowit tracks everything comprehensively, and we have a rigorous QA process to ensure that we don’t miss anything of consequence to you.
