Daily news consumption is an important aspect of nearly everyone’s life, regardless of the medium. While it’s easy to personally educate yourself on the latest news, keeping an entire organization informed poses a new kind of challenge. News often spreads across an organization in a scattered and disorganized way, increasing the risk of misinformation. While many rely on their RSS readers to collect and store all of the content they thrive on — what about entire organizations and businesses?
Thanks to Delve, collaborative enterprise news consumption isn’t a problem any longer. This New York City-based startup has created a powerful alternative for effectively dispersing news across an enterprise. The next-generation social news reader allows each employee to create a personalized list of stories, while also gaining access to internally curated news streams. The hassle of sharing relevant stories with coworkers across an organization is seamlessly erased.
Founded in 2012, Delve’s mission is to help teams turn news and information into knowledge, therefore resulting in action. Beginning in private beta, Delve officially launched in November to bring social news into enterprises everywhere. Delve users can turn news into knowledge by easily discovering the latest news that leaders in their industry are reading about, sharing recommended articles, and saving key articles for reference at a later date.
One of Delve’s most unique aspects is their use of editor-curated news feeds from top content sources. These feeds are then categorized for more efficient digestion. For companies, the news feeds can be subdivided in a number of different ways, allowing different departments access to relevant feed content. An administrator controls the access of users, often giving managers and execs access to all feeds, and team members a more specialized stream of content.
With access to the top news in your industry, profession, or company, Delve recommends news from traditional outlets, industry sources, top blogs, and think tanks. Content showcased on Delve is ranked according to relevance through human editorial control. Delve’s editors curate lists of industry experts who recommend and discuss articles on social media, hand-selecting picks to make sure users don’t miss anything important. This tool utilizes a special algorithm to access authoritative voices and top journalists covering each topic. The news landscape on this platform is clearly categorized into select industries: tech, energy, environment, healthcare, education, politics, media, and advertising.
The greatest value lies in the fact that Delve doesn’t just function as a newsfeed, it’s also a custom newsletter service, saving time and energy for company news distribution. Receivers of Delve newsletters have the ability to interact on the stories they’ve shared, opening the door to company-wide conversations. Users can also flag certain content for groups to read and switch-up content source lists to ensure they are receiving their most-wanted content.
In the future, Delve plans to make the move toward providing project management features on their platform. Currently they are enticing clients with their smart news-consumption design interface and the use of the platform on mobile devices.
If you’re looking to save time and improve the flow of knowledge across your organization, Delve is the perfect platform for you. Start turning news into knowledge today. You can learn more about Delve by visiting their website.
