Comparison Charts Provide Ready-made Research

ITN’s exclusive, comprehensive comparison charts can help save you countless hours researching solutions to make informed purchase decisions—in fact, 57 percent of independently surveyed subscribers indicated the comparison charts are one of ITN’s most useful features. 

Each issue, the editorial team creates specifications for two modalities based on audience need, and then surveys industry suppliers to gather the required data. These charts offer a third-party comparison of all vendors and products extensively, both online and in print. The comparison charts save potential buyers many hours of research time by doing the unbiased comparison for them. 

You might not be aware that ITN’s online charts frequently offer more in-depth, up-to-date information than their print counterparts, and allow you to do customized searches. The online charts are viewable at any time, anywhere, on any device or platform. The charts enable users to view and compare specs from hundreds of different products divided by modality. In total, ITN collects and compiles data for a minimum of 30 different technologies. The online charts allow for immediate, real-time updating of data as new products are added to a modality, or as changes are made in a product’s specifications.
