|Factiva Announces New Personalization and Company Research Functionality in Reuters Business Briefing|
The newly expanded application sets the standard in the business information
industry for personalization and relevance. Reuters Business Briefing provides
subscribers in more than 6,000 corporations access to newswires, more than
10 years of information from Reuters news services, and more than 4,000
other sources from around the world. The information can be searched using
free-text terms and/or items chosen from lists of companies, industries,
topics, sources, or financial instruments. The service also provides delayed
market prices and news photographs. Ten language interfaces provide access
to content in 20 languages.
Subscribers can also view the latest five results of their favorite five searches in a new area of the product NewsPoint, which can be easily customized as their Reuters Business Briefing home page to display the latest headlines or financial prices in five areas of their choice, with easy access to all results. In addition to NewsPoint, other new Reuters Business Briefing features include the following:
“We are unique in the global breadth of our news and research sources, integrating into corporate systems, and dedicated customer support around the world,” said Tim Andrews, president and CEO of Factiva. The company’s business information suite is supported by sales and customer support staff in more than 30 countries.
“The new tools in Reuters Business Briefing set the standard for personalization and relevance,” said Greg Gerdy, executive director of product marketing for Factiva. “They are a result of hundreds of interviews with customers, who are increasingly asking for a Web-based product that efficiently delivers just the right facts, on demand. Those who access the service can see the entire up-to-date collection of opinion and factual information on any business subject.”
