Platts Connect combines world-class benchmarks, data and insights with increased personalization and advanced technology

NEW YORK and LONDON, Sept. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Global Commodity Insights today announced the launch of Platts Connect, a new web-based content application that combines the company's world-leading benchmarks, data, and insights in a single, customizable interface for professionals in the energy and commodities markets.

The launch of Platts Connect further demonstrates the benefits and strengths of the 2022 merger between S&P Global and IHS Markit and integrates the companies' energy and commodities content and data previously available via different platforms, including Platts Dimensions Pro and Connect.

Platts Connect provides customers with a single-entry point to a wealth of energy and commodity-related content, including more than 15,000 daily price assessments, as well as breaking news, research, fundamental data, forecasts, and customizable data analytics tools all accessed via an easy-to-use navigation menu.

Platts Connect features a configurable homepage enabling users to create favorites, alerts, and report libraries, saving time, and ensuring the right data and insights are available with one click. The tailorable workspace provides further end-user personalization with predefined templates and widgets. And in an increasingly mobile and hybrid work environment, Platts Connect offers users the ability to stay connected to market developments when it matters the most, with real-time alerts available via the web, mobile and wearable devices.

"With the launch of Platts Connect we have reimagined how we bring together our world-leading content to unlock more value for our customers," said Saugata Saha, President, S&P Global Commodity Insights.
