    New tools for trade information managers


    © International Trade Centre, International Trade Forum - Issue 3/2001

    ITC has released an updated version of COMREG, its software for managing company registers. Compatible with the latest versions of Microsoft Windows, it enables the use of images and complex search and reporting functions on personal computers and through the Internet in English, French and Spanish. COMREG is used in Angola, South Africa, the United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia.

    ITC has also published a manual describing bibliographical database applications of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) WINISIS software, which is used in many developing countries. The manual can be downloaded in English or Spanish from ITC's web site (http://www.intracen.org/tis/impro.htm) or from UNESCO's web site (http://www.unesco.org/webworld/isis/#Publications).

    A new Trade Information Dissemination guide, based on a survey of over 100 trade support institutions, gives 'best practice' examples of disseminating trade information using the Internet, e-mail and other media. It is available in English and French.
