Pay-as-you-go searches and downloads of latest shipment data is available online
MIAMI – February 8, 2012 – Datamyne has opened its US import database to pay-as-you-go online data searches and downloads.
Datamyne On Demand, the new online access option, enables visitors to the Datamyne website at www.datamyne.com to log into the US import database, search the latest three months of information on waterborne imports, and retrieve and download shipment records for an affordable, one-time charge.
Until now, access to Datamyne’s US import data was available only through an annual subscription. To inaugurate its On Demand product launch, Datamyne is offering free previews at www.datamyne.com.
Datamyne On Demand customers can search the import data, which is gathered from the bills of lading that document the details of each import shipment, using product descriptions, names of the importers or exporters, or the point of origin or destination of the shipments. Datamyne’s advanced search engine quickly retrieves relevant records. Users can easily summarize results and refine searches. They have the added options of saving their searches and setting up email Alerts to be notified of new shipments meeting their search criteria.
On Demand customers preview the first 10 records returned by a search free of charge. The charge to retrieve and download data is $79 for the first 50 records, and $.89 cents for each additional record from 51 up to 250. Customers can view and download their choice of as many as 12 data fields, covering such details as shipper’s address, cargo weight, vessel, and port of arrival. All purchased data is stored in the customer’s profile for later retrieval. New shipments fitting the stored search criteria can be purchased on an à la carte basis.
“Datamyne On Demand is an affordable way to tap the latest available, authoritative, detailed information on US imports,” says Brendan McCahill, CEO of Datamyne.
“It is ideal for smaller businesses that may not be power users of international trade data year-round, but want a current, clear picture of the market when they make business decisions,” McCahill adds. “This is the information our customers use to qualify a potential supplier or customer, keep an eye on competitors’ recent shipments, or monitor their own overseas business relationships.”
Founded in 1992 with the aim of clearly and accurately documenting import-export transactions in the Americas, Datamyne has since claimed a top-ranked position in the highly competitive U.S. market for trade data.
Datamyne today offers the best value in business intelligence: easy access, with expert support, at an affordable price, to the world’s largest searchable trade database. Built and maintained by an international team, Datamyne covers the cross-border commerce of 48 countries in Asia, the European Union, and the Americas.
