EUROPE - Information and technology solutions provider, Thomson Financial, has launched Research Exchange, a research and decision support platform, which includes the company’s broker research, earnings estimates, historical numeric data, pricing and company fundamentals from I/B/E/S, Firstcall, Datastream, ILX, Worldscope and Extel.

“Our mission is to help our customers be more competitive and make better decisions. We are integrating our indispensable content with analysis and other value-added services to produce comprehensive information solutions,” says Jim Malkin, managing director of Thomson Financial Europe.

To avoid the problems of sifting through large amounts of information, the platform has an alerting function, which notifies users when information that meets specified criteria appears in the system.

Research Exchange is available as an ASP solution or it can be deployed into a client’s hosted environment.
