Excerpted from Official Website:
"Delve is a smart, social news reader for professionals and organizations. We cut through the noise to get you the news that matters to your industry. You share and archive articles and insights on a private, secure network."
Here is an excerpt from review article on BetaKit:
"Social newsreaders like Flipboard, Zite, and Pulse have traditionally been aimed at the average reader, and while they have topics like business and technology, they don’t focus specifically on professionals and enterprises looking to stay informed on industry news.
Delve, a New York City-based startup that combines an editorial team with news aggregation, is trying to solve this problem with its social newsreader for professionals.
After signing up and choosing their topics of interests, Delve users receive a curated list of articles based on their sector, and what leading commentators are saying about these topics. From there they can participate in discussions with their colleagues using the forum feature, and recommend content to others on their team. Users get a daily roundup of the news and the discussions surrounding it via email.
Individuals and teams with up to nine users can use Delve for free, and the company is working with 15 pilot enterprise clients, and will charge companies on a per-seat basis after the test run.
The company plans on releasing a mobile app in about a month, which should help it compete with mobile-first newsreaders like iPhone apps Circa and Summly, tablet readers like Flipboard, and others like Prismatic that have a strong mobile presence. Delve doesn’t just compete with social readers though, it competes with the traditional ways employees share articles and discuss news, namely email, social networks, and industry newsletters. In terms of other newsreaders directed at teams, its strongest competition is Flud.it...."
