New technology makes “hard to find” business information, easy

Award-winning technology provider InfoTrack has today announced a quicker and easier way to find and analyse information on global companies and individuals.

Sourcing information from local and global jurisdictions often involves convoluted search processes and the manual drawing of organisational structures and relationships. To simplify the process, InfoTrack has launched a new service whereby clients have access to a range of comprehensive reports that access key data sources, agents and repositories around the world at the click of a button.

The information is then illustrated using REVEAL, InfoTracks’ data visualisation tool, organising the information into an illustrative structure in an interactive workspace that features shareholders, directors, locations and any associated organisations. REVEAL gives the user an ability to quickly view past and present structures of the organisation, using a unique timeline feature.

Barry Vickery, General Manager of Corporate Services comments “In our daily lives, we are now used to search engine functionality as a convenient way of finding information quickly. However, we still have to explore the results in detail to ensure reliability. Similarly, law firms are currently spending much of their time looking for, and analysing business information that is more difficult to find. Our new set of reports, available through the InfoTrack platform, are generated using technology that has direct connections with trusted sources around the world, removing the need to access multiple websites.

Barry continues, “Taking Companies House as an example, our technology consolidates information from both Companies House Direct and Companies House Beta and then provides smart technology in the form of REVEAL, so the information is visualised into a workspace. So, not only is the information reliable but the technology adds real value by making it very easy to explore past and present structures and shareholder information. That saves precious time whilst giving users a confidence in the information procured.”

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
