Lumifi unveils research and collaboration portal

lumifi Lumifi unveils research and collaboration portalLumifi, LLC today launched its interactive research and collaboration portal. Developed for students, professional researchers and other “information hounds,” the new portal leverages Lumifi’s proprietary software that can read search results, websites or documents for you, automatically extracting the most significant topics and associated citations. Lumifi analyzes the relationships between words to produce contextual insight not possible with traditional indexing or search technologies.

The Lumifi platform offers tools to manage information, enabling users to keep their digital content organized in one place. For the user, this means all of the links, documents, and snippets of information they have previously stored in disparate places can be archived according to specific topics, much like an online notebook.

If users want to work in teams or study groups, Lumifi has built an enterprise-class collaboration portal with advanced messaging and note sharing functionality. The collaboration features were built to overcome the inefficiencies of email as a collaboration tool. Notes and messages can be attached to any specific piece of content and live with that content wherever it is archived.
