New platform change: Passport

Recently the Passport database was changed and now has a new web-based platform. The Passport database (Earlier name: Global Market Information Database / GMID) is a database by Euromonitor International and covers much market-related information as well as broad country and consumer statistics. Over the years, the Passport platform has continued to evolve and now, more than before, offers guided paths to get at the reports and market data that you would like to have. The startup screen now looks as follows: After selecting categories and continueing on you often get guided through maker (more) specific selections and then a geographical region: The end result, however, looks the way you are used to: a table with a selection of items that you need and a time frame / geographical selection: The main change in this last results presentation, is the fact that the save / download / print options are now presented at the top left corner: above the options to change the selection criteria.

Passport GMID updated

The database Passport GMID (former name: Global Market Information Database) has undergone some changes. The most remarkable changes involve the search options. It is now much easier to make a quick specific search using the Menu and selection options that are available at the top (black bar).

When you make a selection it is immediately possible to make additional selections using the options that appear in the middle of your screen. Below you see an example when I selected the category Consumer appliances from the menu option Industries (in the black bar). The options that appear after making a selection do vary, depending on your choice, but may include quick links to additional choice options like:

  • Search Tree
  • View top countries
  • View top categories
  • View top companies
  • Analysis finder
  • Dashboards visualize data.

After making choices you will go screens/sections in the database that are more familiar from the previous website for the database. The option that I think is really new, is: Dashboards visualize data. When available this option gives you the possibility to call up visual overviews etc. Below you see an example:
