The Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters has rolled out a news service for users of its Checkpoint research platform that is accesible from the desktop, tablets or smartphones. Thomson Reuters News & Insight draws its content from articles by Reuters business editors, the company's newsletters and a team of accounting and tax journalists that has been recently assembled.
"This is leveraging our existing Checkpoint news content, as well as existing Reuters news content," says Steve Mendelsohn
, president of the company's Business Compliance & Workflow Solutions unit. The system was made available to Checkpoint users this week.
The company also plans to make a significant amount of content available via ereaders. Mendelsohn said this expands an announced ebooks strategy as "as an opportunity to to replace some of our print content or extend some of our print." He said to expect "a full-blown launch" by year's end.
