Jinfo Newsletter 440

11th February 2016

Robin NeidorfJinfo is the new name for FreePint. You might have seen our announcement last week, and if you've been on the site you'll have seen the new branding.

This is simply a name change: we remain totally focused on original research to support the visibility and value of information in organisations.

We deliver through the Jinfo Subscription, covering the three topics that our research demonstrates need to work together:

  • Sources: What sources and products are available, and how do you get the most out of them?
  • Technology: What technologies and innovations enable better information delivery, management, and control?
  • Value: How do we better define, measure and improve the value of investments in information?

If you've been on the Newsletter list for some time but have never had a chance to explore, now is a great time to acquaint yourself with Jinfo's unique value:

  • Focus your attention through our Research Focus: our quarterly look at critical, strategic issues connects you with fresh research and practical outputs to make important improvements.

  • You need product reviews? We've got them: in-depth, methodical reviews that give you a short-cut to identifying alternatives and additions for your portfolio.

  • Need a quick overview of the freshest content? Our latest Subscription Update offers a summary, or visit our "What's New?" page.

But the best way to understand how we can help is to ask us how we address your particular priorities and areas of interest. Our staff can then select and make available to you "tasters" of our content. 

Or, if you already have a Jinfo Subscription, we can help direct you to the most appropriate resource, make recommendations, and take your suggestions for our research and editorial planning.

Ask us today, and we can be helping tomorrow.

Director of Research

Name Change Announcement

Name Change Announcement

We hope you've seen our announcement that "FreePint" has been renamed "Jinfo".

The old name proved a barrier to us communicating the strategic importance of "information" through our research on sources, technology and value.

This Jinfo Newsletter remains the best way for you to stay informed about our latest research and resources.

Thank you for your continued support. Read the announcement here.
