FT Launches Customized RSS Service for Corporate Customers

The Financial Times (www.ft.com) has launched a customized RSS service for internal use by corporate customers. This follows the decision to license FT content directly to corporate customers and is based on feedback from users.

In April 2008, the Financial Times introduced a direct licensing model that gives rights to organizations to have unlimited access to Financial Times journalism both on FT.com and third-party channels (for details, see the NewsBreak at http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/nbReader.asp?ArticleId=41322). Now, organizations with an FT license will have the ability to create RSS feeds customized to their specific needs. This new functionality enables information managers to define their own relevance criteria using the FT.com search engine and to create the tailored feeds immediately.

The RSS service provides the flexibility to integrate links to the most relevant Financial Times articles within the organization’s portal or intranet. End users click through to read the full article on FT.com. As their organization has a direct license they have unlimited access. The information manager can update the search criteria at will as the needs of the organization change. There is no limit to the number of RSS links that can be created, so it is easy to generate one for every area of business interest.
