Dialog has announced the launch of DialogPRO (“predictable research online”) NewsEdge, its latest service designed for small business owners and managers worldwide. Dialog describes the service as “a high-value, easy-to-use news alerting tool, available for subscription at fixed monthly fees, that delivers real-time news provided by top news and research sources based across town and around the world, and also offers easy-to-use access to archives of previously reported news stories and research.”

Specific features available through DialogPRO NewsEdge include:

  • base content of more than 2,000 sources, including real-time reports from newswires such as The Associated Press and PR Newswire, among others;

  • options for access to a larger content pool culled from 8,000 sources;

  • the ability to schedule e-mail delivery of flagged reports during the business day;

  • access to that day’s – as well as previous days’ – editors’ picks and editors’ updates;

  • “Enterprise Redistribution”, the ability to relay flagged news reports and research to others within a subscribing company, and “Publishing Module”, the ability to select news reports for user-created folders that may be shared with others;

  • “Company Watchlist”, a financial markets tracking service based on stock symbols that offers access to detailed research, current market data and real-time news on monitored companies from around the world, enabling easy tracking of prospects, partners and larger competitors; and

  • weather information, with the user able to customize data for specific cities and retrieve five-day forecasts.

DialogPRO NewsEdge combines attributes from two branded families of services offered by Dialog. DialogPRO is a series of business intelligence services designed for small businesses, segmented into content channels (current roster: advertising, biotech, competitive intelligence, consulting, defense, energy, engineering, news, patent and trademark, with more expected to be added later). Dialog NewsEdge is an industry-specific, personalized current awareness and news alerting service designed primarily for corporations and other large organizations.
