Reuters has signed a new three year distribution contract to deliver Factiva's global press watch and knowledge worker archive services over its applications.
Previously only available on Reuter's 3000Xtra desktop, Factiva's content will now also be integrated with the vendor's BridgeStation system as well as domestic and next generation applications including Reuters Knowledge.
Factiva, a Reuters and Dow Jones company, says its global press watch is a collection of articles from over 550 national newspapers and 50 national news wires and will be integrated in products aimed at trading and investment professionals.
Knowledge Worker is a five-year archive of nearly 6000 publications that will be included in products for financial researchers and investment advisors.
Reuters says both services will be included at no additional charge and content will be delivered in the language of the target customer base.
Chris Ahearn, president, Reuters Corporates & Media, adds: "The combination of Factiva and Reuters creates an unmatched level of content to empower the decision-making of our customers."
