When you think of research, you probably don’t get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. That’s because the idea of pouring through books, spreadsheets, newspapers, documents, and all kinds of digital information—presented in a myriad of different formats and in various states of cleanliness—isn’t always a pleasant one. But here’s the good news: While research can be tedious, it doesn’t have to be.

Still, you might be wondering how your specific research can excel with solutions in the Nexis product suite. So, to help spread the word and educate researchers on the benefits of the Nexis solutions product suite, here are the answers to three of the most common questions our data specialists get asked all the time from researchers.
Q: Can I access executive profiles and corporate hierarchy data?
A: Solutions like Nexis Dossier improve corporate research and intelligence with a wealth of executive personnel and corporate hierarchy information. Your business research can draw on all kinds of corporate data on millions of domestic and international companies and feed critical data—such as financials, litigation history, market performance, news mentions, and more—directly into your business applications or customer relationship management (CRM) platform via one of our flexible APIs or on-premises deployment options.
Additionally, when you have access to highly relevant business information you can better identify trends, research companies, and collect critical market intelligence. Enriched, normalized data from multiple trusted content providers will help you identify corporate revenue streams and improve your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analyses. You’ll have premium, licensed print, and online content not available on the open web at your disposal—so you can work more efficiently toward achieving a dominant market position.
Q: How can the Nexis solutions product suite improve my financial models?
Financial modeling and forecasting are only as accurate and as dynamic as the datasets that feed them. Quantity, depth, breadth, and quality are all equally important for trustworthy, reliable financial models. That’s why the Nexis solutions product suite gives your predictive analytics and financial modeling tools access to enriched, curated alternative data that includes datasets from current and historical news archives. Your company will gain highly accurate regression models and better identify trading signals to inform your investment strategies and business decisions.
Q: How can a Nexis solution improve my news reporting or investigative journalism?
