Attensa Online takes advantage of Attensa's unique AttentionStream(TM) article level synchronization that connects desktop, web and mobile RSS reader clients so articles read, organized and deleted are kept up to date no matter where or how they are accessed. Attensa today also announced Attensa for Outlook 1.0 and the two can be used together to easily manage RSS feeds and articles from any computer with an Internet connection.

AttentionStream(TM) Synchronization - One Step Closer to Smart RSS

The introduction of Attensa for Outlook and Attensa Online is the first step in a three phased product strategy that integrates RSS reader/aggregator clients, associated workgroup and enterprise servers and an underlying infrastructure that aggregates and triangulates attention metadata. Attensa's AttentionStream(TM) technology is designed to help people cut through information overload by delivering fewer and more relevant RSS articles. By intelligently analyzing AttentionStreams, including the obvious and not so obvious ways people consume information, new possibilities emerge to prioritize and recommend higher value content to users while cutting down on useless and duplicate information. Attensa's unique lightweight AttentionStream enables fast updating of subscriptions at the article level, frequent synchronizations across multiple RSS clients and near real-time analytics to provide prioritized, more relevant articles.
