New York, NY, March 1, 2005 - ISI Emerging Markets, the leading provider of Internet-delivered emerging markets business intelligence, today announced a significant interface upgrade to its flagship Emerging Markets Information Service (available at www.securities.com). Designed in response to customer feedback and extensive user testing, the changes are both graphic and navigational, improving look and feel as well as usability. Also included is a makeover of the company’s corporate homepage.
Said Jim Hammond, Executive Vice-President of Marketing: “Although we have made continual product improvements every year, the look and feel of our corporate homepage and our services has remained largely unchanged for the past 4 years. This latest version updates and enhances the usability and the visual experience of our online service.”
