Northern Light, a provider of custom enterprise, industry, and web search engines, has released a new version of the Business Research Engine, which opens the service to all users. All users of the Business Research Engine can browse the Market Intelligence Centers (MIC), access the featured reports and resources from the web, and can use the Business Web search without limitations as well as the new white paper search. Users can search the full-text of trade journal and business news databases without limitation to see if there are interesting and relevant articles. A subscription or day pass is required to read articles from the journals and business news sources and to take advantage of the advanced functionality like Search Alerts, Public Alerts, and user preferences. There is no advertising on the site, no pop-ups, no paid inclusions, no text ads pretending to be search results.
Credit card subscriptions to access the premium content and features can take two forms: a monthly subscription for $9.95 or, a new option with this version, 24 hour day passes for $4.95. Subscribers have unlimited access to all content and features. There are also annual enterprise licenses available for $5,000 for up to 50 seats and $36,000 for an unlimited number of users. Some highlights of new features are: a reorganized design of the site; browse by topic; the ability for users to toggle their search; public alerts; the ability for users to set preferences; review account details; and an administration center.
