Reuters unveiled its Web-based version of Reuters Business Briefing (RBB) at the Internet World Show this month. The new version provides access to the full RBB database from over 2,000 sources via a conventional desktop browser.
"We are continually looking at increasing the availability of our business information services through the use of new technologies," said Tim Dennis, MD of Reuters Business Information Products. "This latest development gives users more choice of access methods and heralds a new phase in the development of our Internet and intranet products."
RBB for the Web contains global coverage from sources translated from 17 languages, including international newspapers, specialist trade journals, newswires, market reports and Reuters own network of 1,900 journalists.
Reuters also showed News Explorer, a personalised news alert service for use on intranets. It uses the RBB with Muscat's search engine and pushes news to the users' desktops using probability analysis techniques to select relevant news items based on dynamic user profiles.
