CRIBIS Announces New Content Integration Into SkyMinder
CRIBIS Corp. (http://www.cribis.com) has announced the ability to access, through SkyMinder (http://www.skyminder.com), content from the Investext, MarkIntel, and Industry Insider collections provided by Thomson Financial. These brokerage, analyst, and industry reports, the majority of which SkyMinder users can purchase by individual page as their needs require, can be used for financial projections, market analysis, business intelligence, and evaluation of industry performance.
SkyMinder is a corporate information and decision-support tool that provides in-depth information on more than 31 million public and private companies across more than 200 countries worldwide. SkyMinder offers company information, financial company data, industry information, executive profiles, news, market research, tables, and credit information from leading sources, including Thomson Financial, Jordans', Integra Information, Hoover's, Graham & Whiteside, Dun & Bradstreet, COMTEX, and more.
In addition to the Investext, MarkIntel, and Industry Insider reports from Thomson Financial, SkyMinder recently integrated Dun & Bradstreet's (D&B) Million Dollar Database Plus, which allows information professionals to retrieve detailed information on 481,000 U.S. and Canadian businesses. The database is composed of companies that have more than $3 million in sales or more than 45 total employees or branches with more than 50 employees. The company information includes eight-digit SIC codes, number of employees, annual sales figures, location types, principal executives and their biographies, and a company's banking and accounting firms when available.
"In order to maintain SkyMinder's record of continuous improvement and to expand our service offering, we chose to integrate the very comprehensive Thomson Financial content for its authoritative financial data and quality business research on companies, industries, and markets worldwide," said Carlo Gherardi, chief operating officer for CRIBIS. "This addition, along with the integration of the new D&B database, which is well-known for its reliability, allows users to access the best company and industry information possible."
In addition to the millions of online reports available through SkyMinder, its users can order custom off-line reports through the CRIBIS Consultancy Service. According to the announcement, information professionals will be interested in the ability to request a "fresh investigation" for any company anywhere in the world.
