Keeping on top of market changes is crucial if industry players are to survive and thrive in the current climate.

Recognising this challenge, ICIS has enhanced its Dashboard service to include Market Alerts by email for the most fluid petrochemicals and fertilizers markets.

As a trusted source of market information, with price benchmarks relied upon by traders, buyers, sellers and analysts worldwide, ICIS is continually searching for ways to improve its services.

"This new functionality provides an easy way for our customers to access market developments and price updates. It represents a significant enhancement in our ability to support pre-transactional decision-making and creates real-time relevance within our customers' workflow," said Simon Platt, ICIS Director of Product Management.

The ICIS Dashboard is an online, customisable platform that gives customers a single view of the markets that matter to their businesses and the new email alerting service will deliver relevant market updates directly to their inbox.
