Industry Intelligence launches new business intelligence service informPlatform to help customers make better business decisions

LOS ANGELES , March 17, 2009 (press release) – Industry Intelligence Inc., a leading independent provider of business intelligence, today unveiled a new service that allows companies to share intelligence across their organizations and make critical business decisions with higher confidence.

Industry Intelligence, partnering with sister company Forestweb, designed the new informPlatform service as a single, centralized platform to meet the needs of every information user in every position in a company. Using customized, real-time information that affects their industry and the economy, executives get the snapshot they need, when they need it. Managers track their markets and competitors and can delve into specific industry intelligence at the click of a button. Sales teams have targeted information on customers and markets always at hand.

“Companies need reliable, accurate news and data to run their business and make the right decisions,” said Rami Ghandour, CEO of Industry Intelligence. “But unless that information is organized, processed and offered to our users in different views to meet different needs, it’s a burden, not a benefit.”

Industry Intelligence’s informPlatform addresses the criticality of proper information management by providing customers with a Macro view of an industry and the economy or a Micro view that offers in-depth news and data analysis.

Only minutes are needed with the Macro view to get a clear view of what’s happening in a specific industry or the economy. The detail- enriched news headlines tell a complete story in a glance, all updated in real time.

The Micro view allows a user to delve more deeply into any market sector. Instantly, users connect to news, data, analysis, statistics and charts for enhanced context and relevance.

Several built-in collaboration tools for sharing secured comments, notes, questions and analysis ensure that every single piece of raw information can be transformed into actionable intelligence, shedding an entirely new meaning to the previously isolated piece of information.
