I. Overview

As the economy grows, large companies and groups are facing more and more market complexities. New problems and situations that affect the market trend emerge one after another and market information multiplies. In the mean time, application of the quantitative method to the industry research at a high speed demands higher efficiency and accuracy of information collection. The mode of manual information collection has been unable to cater the market and technological growth.

Its alarm function allows the related people to be aware of the information as soon as it occurs.
