ICIS launches Data Express

Chemical, energy and fertilizer markets intelligence provicer ICIS has enhanced its delivery platforms with a new service, Data Express, which offers two options to make downloading and organising data easier for customers.

Subscribers to ICIS can now choose to access their data via an application programming interface (API) streamed directly into their proprietary systems or via a Microsoft Excel plug-in, depending on which service best suits their business needs.

Data updates are highlighted automatically and price history updates are sorted in the same column, making it easy to benchmark prices, identify opportunities, and manage risks. This facilitates smoother decision-making, and increased competitiveness for ICIS customers.

Alternatively, if customers need data delivered directly into their proprietary systems, the API can provide instant access to the latest prices as they are published, or insights into market fundamentals for one-off projects, saving time and effort when updating internal databases.
