I am looking for a company that offers a solution to integrate product alerts to an ecommerce site. Customers can signed to recive alerts via RSS, or email, or other options.
I heard of mybuys but I am looking for other options.

Does anybody know?

Could you not just build this straight into you shopping cart system, it wouldn't be very hard to implement? We built a back in stock notification system last week, which is basically the same design.

We don't have IT resources to build this for us internally.

If you sort your inventory by most recently added, a RSS feed seems easy to accomplish. If you have your inventory in a database, many database systems also offer a meta field that will store "last modified" date. If your current platform offers modules, see if the features you want is already available.

I would recommend trying to find a local company to help you with this, or use one of the online freelance auction services.

An RSS feed is a good idea but there is still such a large percentage of Internet users that are not aware of it or what to do with it. I would recommend doing both, at least you keep the web savvy and not so savvy happy!
