domain-b, with its timely news reports and features, already has the
best navigation system in the online media business, which allows you
to find relevant business information you need in a jiffy, and lets you
browse through tens of thousands of pages of business information with
the minimum of effort.
Now we have added many other things that will bring you more information
more easily and allow you to do more things with the information you get
on domain-b. With these, domain-b has facilities to help users to save,
bookmark, label, forward and share content on domain-b that are better
than any other Indian business website. Check it out for yourself.
After you have gone through the new site, we would to hear what you feel
about it. Do visit our feedback page to tell
Before you do that, you might like to get a bird's eye view of the improvements
we have made on domain-b.com. Here it is:
Besides the special section on Aviation & Aerospace, which we added
in January 2007, which has already become the most popular site for information
on aviation and aerospace in India, and the db Financials section, which
we added in June 2007, which adds a new dimension to the website, we have
now added these other news sections:
||Statistics (to be launched by June 2008)
Backgrounders and fun stuff
||Backgrounders ('What's that?')
These are shown to you in context. So, when you open a report on auto
companies' plans to introduce cars that run on bio-diesel, you will see
a link to a backgrounder on bio-diesel. When you see a report on IBM doing
something or other, you will see some titbits on IBM's origins, or some
other interesting stuff about IBM. When you access reports in the Brand
Dossier, you will see quizzes about brands to test your general knowledge.
Doing things with the information
When you see what domain-b offers now, you get the true meaning of the
power of Internet media and their superiority over the print press and
TV. We have used the powerful InformachineTM software engine to provide
you these services. Take a look:
Saving for easy retrieval and access anywhere, anytime: When you
wish to save a report on any website, you usually do that by saving it
as a file on your hard disk. You can, of course, continue to do that -
but now you can do more. You can save the report in your own 'cabinet'
on domain-b. And, when you save it:
||You can also bookmark it (to signify that it is important). You
can add a bookmark to a saved report anytime later, if you want.
||You can label the report with your personalised labels (e.g., "material
for Jan presentation" or "stuff to circulate" or whatever
else you find convenient). The reports already have their standard
labels, like the company name, or the industry or product description,
or things like M&A, or advertising/branding.
||Whenever you wish to retrieve content you have already seen and
saved in your cabinet on domain-b, just do a search for reports with
bookmarks, or with any of your personalised labels or any of the standard
labels. It's very, very fast and easy.
||Add notes and comments to the saved reports for your later reference
or for sharing with others.
||Forward reports to others, with or without your comments.
Tracking and alerts
The new domain-b.com has been designed to deliver directly the information
most relevant to you. The domain-b dashboard and the domain-b tracker,
are two different ways in which you can tell us what you consider relevant.
||The dashboard: Your dashboard (scroll to the extreme right of any
domain-b page) tells you at a glance all that is new in the areas
that you are interested in. So, for example, if you select the M&A
label for tracking, each time you log in, you will see a list of the
latest mergers & acquisitions reports on domain-b. You can select
up to five labels for such tracking free of cost, including industries,
companies, management and marketing issues, and any others of the
hundreds of standard labels on domain-b.
||The tracker: Using the tracker you can choose to receive email alerts
to new articles or news items that have been classified using the
particular combinations of labels you find interesting. For example,
if you're interested in brand management in the automotive industry,
you could create a tracker that would alert you whenever there was
a new article that was labelled not only as 'brand management' but
also as 'auto industry'.
A fresh new look
domain-b's old design though very well appreciated by its readers, had
become awkward and clunky as new sections and features were added to it
over time. Technologies had also improved since the time the old interface
was created. It was clearly time for a new design that took into account
what was lacking in the old design. Here are some highlights of the new
look and feel:
