PR Newswire Launches NewsPrompt News Alert System

Apr 27, 2004

PR Newswire has launched NewsPrompt, a news alert system designed to deliver the latest breaking financial and business news. NewsPrompt is an online tool that alerts users minute-by-minute to the availability of news from sources including television stations such as CNBC and Bloomberg TV; online news sites such as Financial Times and the Washington Post; international news wires such as Reuters and AFX; and regulatory news filed through the Securities and Exchange Commission's EDGAR database. Through the use of a tool bar located at the bottom of a computer screen, NewsPrompt delivers alerts on breaking news and links to full-text articles, based upon pre-determined criteria and keywords set up by the user. NewsPrompt is powered by technology developed by The Relegence Corporation, a Manhattan-based company which services major institutions in the financial services market.
