Company Profile reports provide name of owner or CEO, number of employees, sales volume, line of business, and contact information. ABI charges $6 for each report plus system charges. Searchers can also get mailing labels or printouts for $4 plus 25 cents per name and address. Counts of companies in market categories for statistical analysis are charged the base connect-time rates of $15/ connecthour. The gateway connection to NewsNet accesses the direct service through a menu-driven database guide divided into geographic categories -- U.S. Businesses, U.S. Manufacturers, Canadian Businesses -- and then type of information -- Business lists, counts, company profiles. The ABI service also provides TRW business credit reports for $29 each. In the near future they hope to add MetroMail's Peoplefinder file currently available on LEXIS/NEXIS, Information America, and direct from MetroMail's Metronet service.
