Investext Group said it recently released Research Bank Web, which delivers reports and market analyses on individual companies to desktop computers.
Investext followed that announcement in early June with a free text searching capability and the option to buy individual pages in PDF-portable document format-via the World Wide Web.
The software, in version 1.0, offers access to several hundred investment banks and other data sources worldwide. More than 5,000 reports are added weekly.
The benefits include "maximum timeliness, integral search features, and full-image presentation," said Tom Moore, managing director.
The company is part of the Thomson Financial Services unit of Thomson Corp. of Canada, as is American Banker.
