Intelligence Data to Implement Qpass Digital Commerce Service

Thomson Financial/Intelligence Data (, a provider of business intelligence to the corporate market, has selected Qpass ( to develop an online commerce solution that will deliver in-depth opinion and analysis to companies on a pay-per-document basis. Intelligence Data's content is currently sold by subscription. The new e-commerce solution, which is expected to launch later this year, will allow occasional users and companies with smaller budgets to obtain reports on an as-needed basis.

Intelliscope, Intelligence Data's flagship product, offers detailed broker research as well as analyst morning meeting notes and commentary. When the e-commerce service launches, it will also feature trade and business publications, newsletters, news wires, and company profiles. The integration of Qpass will allow users to locate the data they're interested in, pay for their selected document(s) on the spot, and then download the file(s) they've purchased.

Documents will be priced by content set. All broker research reports will have standardized pricing based on the length of the report. The morning meeting notes and analyst commentary, which are generally one or two pages long, will have a set price per note, and each article and newsletter, regardless of length, will also have a set price.

Qpass' reporting capabilities will allow Intelligence Data to track usage by customer. If a customer's usage increases over time, or if he or she purchases several large reports over the course of a year, a subscription may prove to be more economical than purchasing individual reports. In these instances, an account executive will be able to contact the customers to discuss subscription pricing, giving them the option to switch to a subscription or continue to purchase individual reports based on their anticipated future needs.
