FeedBeep and PubSub announce delivery of real-time RSS alerts to mobile phones
Posted on 25-Mar-2005 14:13 | Tags Filed under: News



Santa Cruz Tech and PubSub are announcing the launch of FeedBeep, a service providing real-time RSS alerts to Short Message Service (SMS)-enabled phones and mobile devices.

PubSub is a free service that monitors more than nine million Internet sources on users' behalf and notifies them instantly when keywords are published in blogs, press releases, SEC filings, newsgroups and other sources. PubSub's real-time offering is called "prospective search" for its ability to alert on new information as soon as it appears. FeedBeep, a service of Santa Cruz Tech delivers RSS news feeds from around the world to your SMS phone or pager.

FeedBeep utilizes PubSub's prospective search technology to monitor RSS feeds and the blogosphere-using keyword search. FeedBeep then forwards important events in the form of alerts to subscribers' cellular phones or other SMS-enabled mobile devices.

"Prior to our relationship with PubSub, FeedBeep used a retrospective search pull-and-match engine that required "spiders" to crawl the whole Internet around the clock," said Jay Campbell, president, FeedBeep. "By tying in PubSub's prospective search real-time matching engine, the job of information hunting and gathering was instantly less time-consuming, more accurate and continually updated. As a result, FeedBeep became an order of magnitude more powerful overnight."

Using PubSub, FeedBeep delivers instant access to potentially critical news. For example, when a press release is published containing keywords or phrases requested in users' subscriptions, FeedBeep alerts those subscribers via SMS. In this example, public relations professionals and reporters would receive instant notification of breaking news important to them, without having to continually monitor dozens or hundreds of Web sites from their computer.
