NEW YORK, NY (May 8, 2001) -- AF Lewis Information Services has rolled out GraphSTATS, an interactive CD-ROM Report featuring more than 130 of the most pertinent summaries and counts from graphic arts facilities across the United States and Canada.
GraphSTATS reviews the industry by principal product, major equipment operated and various combinations of equipment and business classifications that define key production segments. GraphSTATS is also designed to emphasize information related to company size and geographical location.
Each data sheet is linked to historical information and commentary, which is essential for measuring industry changes. GraphSTATS also includes counts of plants by SCF (three-digit zips).
"It is rewarding to bring such a uniquely useful information tool to the marketplace. That we can provide it with such accessibility is even more exciting," said Marguerite van Stolk, publisher of the AF Lewis Directory Information & Research Services Unit of Cahners Business Information.
Selected quarterly updates ensure GraphSTATS contains up-to-the-moment information throughout the industry, helping track dips, surges and trends. This exciting product was created to help marketing and sales executives answer vital industry questions about new product development, market share calculations and sales planning, among other uses.
GraphSTATS can be accessed through Adobe Acrobat Reader, and using Microsoft Excel, each data sheet can be manipulated and output from a CPU to meet customized presentation and sales needs.
