Dialog says the service is an essential point of reference for organizations researching the potential of overseas markets.

Data may be accessed either by conducting a specific search or by opting to receive automated alerts when new data is available. The functionality offered by TradStat offers the user the following abilities: viewing import/export figures for countries ranging from Argentina to Zambia; assessing market share, tracking competition, and identifying potential trade partners; monitoring trends in trade flows and price fluctuations; and tracking the movements of products around the globe.

In addition to this, new functionality for TradStat Web includes the following: continuous updating to offer superior levels of timeliness when compared to CD-ROM and hard copy sources; the ability to e-mail reports to colleagues; use of a built-in foreign-exchange calculator; the ability to create personalized regions of interest to the user; and an online bulletin board providing news of new data coming online.
