Each CustomWire brings together information from agencies and publishers to offer both a global and local perspective on business, financial, economic, and political news that affects business in a particular region. According to the announcement, with COMTEX as a single-source provider, customers save time and money and can obtain a diverse blend of news that's categorized and relevant. As with all of COMTEX's content offerings, each CustomWire story is enhanced by keywords and U.S. stock ticker symbols to facilitate searching and data management.

"Our regional CustomWires are one of the many ways we are committed to providing our customers with the specialized news and information they need from a particular region," said Sheri Robey-Lapan, COMTEX's vice president of marketing and corporate strategy. "Our topic-specific, real-time news ensures that content is delivered in context, and provides the targeted solution our distributors need for their customers. COMTEX is committed to delivering solutions to the international market with the same quality, breadth, and depth as the U.S. market has come to expect.
