AP redesigns markets site

August 13, 2009

The Associated Press has redesigned its Markets Web site. The Web site has been enhanced to include better navigation and design.

Money & Markets, customizable for both print and online use, provides insight into the financial markets with a broad mix of text, graphics and data modules.

“Users have told us the new site looks great, is easy to navigate, and provides increased functionality and better access to product information,” said Josh Orenstein, AP Global director of business and financial products, in a statement. “The new features really highlight our Money & Markets product, and the site has been designed so that members can easily take action,” Orenstein said.

The site now allows subscribers to more easily login and download their files. A new “Featured Members” page provides links to existing member implementations of Money & Markets online, giving subscribers a quick way of seeing Money & Markets “in action.” Ticker/Stub Lookup is featured more prominently on the page so members can easily figure out abbreviations or stub names in their print listings.

“The updated Web site emphasizes the current Money & Markets product offerings while still providing information about Grand Central Stocks (GCS), StocksExpress, and our Quarterly/Annual products,” said Russell Pollack, AP manager of markets operations, in a statement.

Money & Markets Print, Online, and Extra Modules are prominently featured on the home page with robust drill-down information available. Money & Markets Print Product drill-down information includes a pop-up window providing easy one-click access to samples of each module. Money & Markets Online drill-down information offers “live” samples of modules.

There are detailed “Help” and “Download” pages providing one-stop access to everything a member needs for Money & Markets. In addition, downloads, fonts, GCS data elements, fund classifications and more are easily located from the main navigation.
