FreePint's director of research, Robin Neidorf, presents a comprehensive analysis of the results from FreePint's 8th Annual Survey on News Needs and Preferences.

  • She reports on survey participants, budget levels and increases/decreases since 2014, and who holds responsibility for decisions on news acquisition and licensing, and highlights questions added to this year's survey.

  • She also looks in detail at content priorities. Features of premium news products are rated according to importance and compared across previous years. Frequency of carrying out news-related tasks such as searching for deep archive news or using a news visualisation tool are covered, and users of news products for in-depth research, and for current awareness are highlighted by department and level of product access.

  • There's also a section on the purchasing environment for news where Robin comments on changes respondents have made to their licensing of news databases and key suppliers, the key factors in contract decisions, purchase decision factors, and purchasing philosophies.

  • Preferences for primary and secondary news products, including comprehensive platforms which cover more than news, and specialist industry-specific tools are analysed. Robin examines which products remain consistently popular, which product features are trending or becoming less popular, and how satisfied respondents are with elements of their news providers - such as content, features and service levels.

  • Finally responses around newsletters and alerting options are examined, as well as options to integrate news into workflow systems and intranets, and the use of aggregation platforms.
