NEW YORK, Dec. 13 -- Dow Jones & Company (NYSE:DJ) today introduced new capabilities offered by its services division, Dow Jones Client Solutions, which focuses on the seamless integration of job-specific information into the daily workflow of corporate, media and financial clients.

Arthur Rassias, vice president of client solutions, Dow Jones Enterprise Media Group, said, "Dow Jones's consultative approach empowers us to truly understand our customers' information needs and provide them with a solution that helps their employees be more effective in their roles. We also take it a step further by presenting relevant content not only where users work, but in user-friendly, visual formats that enable them to get a comprehensive view of the information landscape and inspire action within their teams."
