How to Monitor Government Agency News, Resources, and Guidance with Visualping

Leverage Visualping for Automatic Updates on Government Agency News, Resources and Guidance

Regularily keeping an eye on websites of government and regulatory agencies is a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in a given department or industry of interest.

As a legal professional, you’re well aware of the importance of keeping track of the latest changes in your practice area. Keeping your knowledge current is critical in providing your legal team and clients with the best support.

Often, government agencies’ decisions and actions will significantly impact your practice, and the support to your clients, and so it’s important you know about these updates right away.

But bookmarking various government and regulatory body websites, and remembering to recheck them for updates on a regular basis, is tedious and time-consuming. You’re at risk of forgetting to check, or simply not checking frequently enough, and accidentally overlooking a crucial update.

Visualping is a thrifty and clever solution for helping you keep track of the latest government and regulatory agency news and resources – and, from any web page you’d like to get your updates from.

You don’t have to bookmark various news and resources pages. Nor do you have to surrender your email address to newsletters that tend to pummel your inbox with irrelevant information. Scavenging through this content is tedious and, again, increases the odds of you accidentally overlooking something important.

With a little know-how, you can use the power of the internet – paired with a simple yet powerful AI tool – to monitor any primary information sources, and for the exact information you care about.

How Does Visualping Work?

Simple Website Change Monitoring

Website change monitoring” describes a category of tools that scan the web for changes, and notify you when there’s a change. When this happens, you get an email alert that displays the change to you.

Available online, Visualping is particularly useful for legal and regulation monitoring, because you can:

  • Track any web page on the internet you want for updates.

  • Easily understand the web page change, thanks to email alerts that come with screenshots, and the changes highlighted.

  • Only get alerts on exactly what you care about, by specifying which parts of the page to monitor, and how often you want Visualping to check it for.

  • Stay organized and overview past changes in your user dashboard – the central location that stores all the web page updates you’re tracking.

As an added bonus, Visualping offers a keyword alert feature, so you can only get alerted when certain words or phrases are added or removed. This helps ensure that you get notifications for exactly what you care about.
