Northern Light Introduces SinglePoint 4.0
Northern Light (www.northernlight.com) introduced SinglePoint 4.0, the latest release of its hosted market research portal and content integration application for enterprises. SinglePoint provides centralized search, analysis, and access for diverse sources of market intelligence. Northern Light aggregates all targeted content daily for each SinglePoint client—internal primary research, licensed secondary sources, and other licensed material—indexes it, and makes it available for unified access.
SinglePoint 4.0 enhancements address three areas of functionality: personalization, ease of use, and system administration. For example, SinglePoint 4.0 lets each user create a personalized home page by adding the following:
- Headline feeds based on custom search queries
- Alerts delivered via email or RSS feeds
- "My Favorite" analyst research and news by topic, source, or author
Ease of use in SinglePoint 4.0 has been enhanced by offering preconfigured Expert Searches created by professional editors based on an organization’s information priorities. Also available to users is a comprehensive research vendor database, so with one click a user can ascertain, under their organization’s policies, how to acquire a piece of research to which they may not automatically have access.
For administrators, SinglePoint 4.0 offers an expanded set of usage monitoring and reporting facilities. In addition, administrators can easily communicate information of general interest to all users throughout their organizations using announcement boxes that automatically appear on each user’s home page, and they can instantly identify, assign, and change users’ research access privileges based on shifting short-term needs and organizational priorities.
Offered in a secure, hosted, user self-service portal environment, SinglePoint is customized to the precise market research and competitive intelligence purposes of each of Northern Light’s enterprise clients. SinglePoint 4.0 is available immediately. The pricing for unlimited enterprisewide access to SinglePoint is based upon the number of market research sources a company wants integrated into its portal, starting at $50,000 annually.
