A new solution from Dow Jones & Company provides management consultants with the focused news, information and search tools they need to gain insight into prospect and customer industries and issues around the globe. Culling information from 28,000 news sources and 18 million company profiles, Dow Jones Consultant is delivered via newsletters or a single dashboard and quickly equips firms with knowledge that helps them demonstrate their value to clients, build relationships, become better counselors and ultimately build their practices.

Brigitte Ricou-Bellan, vice president and managing director of Enterprise Solutions, Dow Jones, said, "Consultants are getting their news, research, and company and industry information from disparate print and online sources, which is time consuming and cumbersome. They need to process information quickly and determine what is meaningful to clients and prospects in order to develop new business opportunities."

"With Dow Jones Consultant, the premium and most relevant sources of information for a consulting firm are combined so that users can more efficiently stay abreast of the industry news and information that drives meaningful conversations with clients and prospects," Ricou-Bellan added.
