FirstRain was selected by an international commercial law firm, Bird & Bird, to be part of their Library and Information Services team. One of the selling points was FirstRain’s semantic categorization technology that filters out the noise of the general Web, providing targeted, global company, market and sales intelligence.

Sys-Con Media brought this news to our attention in their article, “Bird & Bird Selects FirstRain.” As nature-ish as it sounds, the folks at Bird & Bird have already integrated FirstRain into their ad hoc research process. In addition, adding FirstRain brought them the information advantage of targeted business monitoring and the ability to disseminate research results across their enterprise efficiently.

With the massive amount of data and clutter on the Web these days, any filter to help you drill down on the results you really want sounds like a great idea.
