Factiva Releases Factiva Search Module

Factiva, a Dow Jones/Reuters company, has announced the launch of Factiva SearchModule, the second tool in Factiva Integration, a suite of solutions for integrating Factiva's global content into intranets and portals. According to the announcement, customers can integrate Factiva Search Module into the layout of any existing Web-based corporate desktop. This gives them access to the external news and internal information they need to make informed business decisions, without ever leaving the application in which they are working.

"Through research, we found that our customers want flexible solutions so they can integrate Factiva's global content into their desktop applications," said Clare Hart, Factiva's president and CEO. "Factiva Search Module benefits businesses by allowing our customers to search our content directly from their intranet or portal."

Factiva Search Module is capable of sharing the same page and seamlessly integrating with various portal and intranet applications, such as internal databases, CRM systems, and e-mail. It's available in two versions: a Standard Version based on HTML and a Custom Version based on open-systems and XML tagging that allows users to simultaneously search internal content and Factiva's global content.

As an integrated solution, users have access to all of Factiva's global content, including a database of nearly 6,000 sources in 12 languages, such as The Wall Street Journal; Le Monde; The Times of London; The South China Morning Post; and Dow Jones, Reuters, and Associated Press news wires.
