Esmerk Oy, which produces news services and monitors the public image of companies, now offers also mobile news distribution services. News abstracts can now be received on Nokia 9210 Communicator. The service is already operative and will be presented at the Business Information 2002 Fair on 13 – 14 March.

Esmerk is a producer of customized information services since 1975. Today Esmerk follows events in Europe, North and South America, and Asia. The follow-up service covers financial and economic papers, newspapers as well as local papers and trade magazines in nearly 90 countries. Esmerk assists customers in finding essential data and in their management of information flow. A well structured news memo is delivered to subscribers every day.

"Competition for readers’ time is critical, and it has therefore become increasingly important to offer abstracts of the most important news in wireless media", says Esmerk Oy’s President Ilkka Räsänen.

"We offer our customers the possibility to react quickly and conveniently to changes in their operating environment. In addition to industry follow-up, the companies need to communicate changes in their own corporate image to their key personnel. Esmerk’s 27-year long experience as supplier of focused and customized information in a compact form really comes into its own with the penetration of new mobile concepts."
