Over recent months, FreePint has been taking a fresh look at providers of company information, delving deeply into long-established and newer services to look at issues such as breadth and depth of company profile coverage and integration of profiles with company-related news. Chris Porter picks out some notable highlights.
In June of last year, FreePint was delighted to take an in-depth look at Avention, a new company, executive and industry information product from the provider formerly known as OneSource.
That review concluded that the vendor had built on its previous strengths as a provider of deep and well-structured data and had moved quickly to launch an improved user interface and innovative workflow capabilities. It also provides very useful integrated access to company reports and filings.
The review of Avention then sparked a wider scrutiny of company information providers.
In the months since then, FreePint has caught up with a variety of vendors in this field, looking at them all through a similar lens to see how they measure up against criteria such as breadth and depth of coverage for quoted and privately held companies; integration of company-related news; or the ability to get quickly up to speed with key company developments in recent months and years.
The Subscription Article "Vendor Market Overview - Company Information" provides a useful comparative grid which highlights information such as special features and key use-cases.
In a series of reviews and vendor interviews, we were struck by:
As the latest FreePint annual Survey on News Needs and Preferences has yet again showed, company-related information is always very near the top of the enterprise information-buyer's wish list - so watch out for further coverage!
