CMIE launches Tradedx

by Janaki Samant

It is CMIE’s continuous endeavour to make its services user-friendly and easily accessible. In this effort, it has been been migrating its desktop installation services to web-delivery systems. The launch of Tradedx is the last in the series of migrations. Tradedx is a web-delivered annual subscription-based service providing foreign trade data. This will replace ‘India Trades’ which is a desktop installation service.

Tradedx provides data on India’s foreign trade and world trade. India’s foreign trade data is presented based on two types of product classification - Principal Commodities (PC) and Indian Trade Classification (ITC). World trade data is presented based on Harmonised System (HS) of product classification.

Tradedx has various advantages over India Trades. In the web-delivered service, clients can access new data immediately after it is updated in the CMIE database. This is a significant improvement over the update process of India Trades where there is a considerable delay in updating new data as it involves manual process.

Tradedx is superior to India Trades in the area of access to the service. The user can access the web-based service from anywhere using the registered login and password. Besides, the IP-based installation allows simultaneous access to multiple users of an educational or research institution. Access to India Trades is restricted to the physical system on which it is installed or the local area network over which access is provided.

Long time-series data is available in Tradedx. In India Trades, only limited time-series is available as there are restrictions on the size of data that can be provided in the desktop product.

A facility ‘Seek Clarifications’ is available in Tradedx. Through this platform, clients can directly interact with the product team for quick redressal of their queries and doubts related to data, updates or any other issues for which they might require clarity. This facility is not available in India Trades.

The base price of Tradedx remains unchanged at Rs.1,50,000 per single user for annual subscription. Single user subscription is entitled to 7,000 hits in one year. IP-based subscription is priced at Rs.2,25,000 and is entitled to 15,000 hits. Tradedx can be accessed from the url, tradedx.cmie.com.
