We believe that people want to save both time and money.
We believe there are several things people want to follow on regular basis such as:
- the current price of an expensive item (such as a television) that you would like to purchase so that you can find the lowest price and the best discount to save money
- the current price of a company X stock in the stock market to find out when it is time to buy or sell in order to optimize your profits
- the current price of an item in an online auction in order to bid at the last minute "just enough"
- the number of followers you have in your social media accounts
- the number of likes your social media post has received
- the status of your web application or related software builds
- the latest new post on forum Y
- the latest top article with a specific Twitter search
We believe that people are evaluating the things they monitor based on certain conditions and when those conditions are met, they will take action. For example, the price of the television that you want will drop below certain price.
We believe that when this kind of tracking of many things happens manually every day, it is a huge waste of time and you can easily miss good discounts, buying or selling opportunities and as a result can also lose money.
Therefore most of content monitoring should be easily automated so that an application will monitor the things you have defined, evaluates the results based on the conditions you have defined and then notifies you when those conditions are met so that you can take action.
