Stitch Together a Complete Picture of the Competitive Landscape with the Pin Feature in Nexis® for Competitive Intelligence

August 12, 2021

Are you frustrated with a highly fragmented and time-intensive CI workflow? Searching high and low for disparate types of information. Trying to connect the dots to capture actionable insights about competitors. And you still must find time to organize what you’ve discovered to share with decision makers. Nexis® for Competitive Intelligence helps CI professionals overcome these challenges by uniting four key pieces of any CI workflow. We’ve already given you a closer look at the Search and Compare features. Now see how the Pin feature streamlines data collection, allowing you to collate and annotate findings with ease.

Capture Critical Evidence, All in One Place

The faster you can unlock insights from your competitive intelligence research, the sooner you can activate them across the business. But switching between different tools only puts speed bumps in the path. That’s where Nexis for Competitive Intelligence can accelerate your time to insight. How does it work?

After running a search across a world-leading content collection that aggregates enriched news, company and legal information—even patents and IP data—you can move seamlessly to the flexible workspace offered by the Pin feature. Create pinboards to organize your findings as you go.

  • Gather snippets of articles, charts and other data points in a single visual space.
  • Keep track of your data sources—no separate spreadsheets required.
  • Collate and annotate findings with your own notes and analysis.
  • Craft a compelling narrative that brings your competitive intelligence insights to life.


Instead of stopping and starting, you can pin relevant findings on the fly. Not sure an article is relevant? Save it for later consideration. With pinboards at your fingertips, you can return to update your findings any time, allowing you to maintain CI that evolves as quickly as the competitive landscape around you.
