53% of Adults Use Wikipedia

Pew Research reports that more than half of all adults on the Internet use Wikipedia to find information.   This is a great resource to check on trivia, dates, and quick facts.  But when you are looking for authoritative, in-depth, well-researched information it may not be a good idea to go to Wikipedia for answers.  It is best to turn to a trained professional who can search hundreds of commercial databases and online indexes, as well as find the perfect print resource (i.e. a book) or person to whom you can have a conversation about your business information needs.

Information Outloud is that resource.  I can take your information conundrum and find factual, authoritatve, supported research and provide you with an answer or a direction to solving problems.  Contact me and let me show you.

Workplace Information Overload

The 2010 International Workplace Productivity Survey, commissioned by LexisNexis, surveyed 1,700 white collar workers in five countries – the United States, China, South Africa, United Kingdom and Australia – found professionals in every market struggling to cope with information overload.

I can help! Information Outloud is a resource to help you find, focus, and filter information for you and your employees.

According to the study, “white collar workers say they spend as much time wading through information as they do using it in their jobs.”  Your time is valuable.  Your clients need you to act as fast as possible and be accurate, authoritative, and efficient.  I can help you wade through the information and find the best documents and data available from the Internet, commercial databases, and experts.

Michael Walsh, CEO of U.S. Legal Markets, LexisNexis: “The results of this survey reveal not just how widespread the problem is, but also the very real impact that information overload has on professionals’ productivity and the bottom line. Employers need to do more than simply toss their workers a life preserver and hope for the best. They need to invest in practical solutions.”
