    In 1993, the concept for the creation of a company which would take on the task of selective, valid and timely update through various printed materials, such as newspapers and magazines, was accomplished in Thessaloniki by the “ENIMEROSI” company. The use of new technologies also helped in this direction. “ENIMEROSI” company deals with the research, gathering and dispatch of information through all the means of information.
    Our company searches and keeps up with newspapers, magazines, the Internet, radio and TV stations, even the International Press so that several requirements are fulfilled:
    Complete allocation of the information during the early morning hours, careful research in more than 800 greek publications, exquisite audiovisual output, primary focus on the subscriber’s wishes and requirements and available “after sales service” at any time.
    “ENIMEROSI” has at its disposal the greatest variety of printed materials, as far as the content is concerned and the place of origin. The numerous, experienced staff reads seven days per week all the daily, weekly and monthly publications of any kind of context.
    As for the printed index, the extracts are printed in A4 and A3 dimensions and the sending of the original articles is also possible, if agreed. This can be accomplished by our own courier daily, through the greek post office or via fax.
    Our electronic node is www.apo.gr. Using your own password you can enter your electronic folder which is updated early in the morning with the extracts of your interest. The file remains in our node and your computer is not further loaded. The use of the program is simplified and easy. Choosing the index from the internet has its own advantages. For example, daily access to the most significant news of all the newspapers in Athens and Thessaloniki. Simultaneous access with the same password for more than one users is also feasible.
    Additionally, the daily dispatch can be done through e-mail in the given addresses of the subscriber.
    Subscribers can also be updated for what and how something was referred in television and radio
    stations. This platform is internet based and retains its information for 30 days.
    According to your requirements, you can be informed by various networks on the internet.
    The company takes into consideration the need for evaluation of an offering service in advance and therefore we offer FREE testing subscribing for a week to anyone who is interested.
    It is our obligation to be in the assistance of the client- subscriber at any time for anything that may come up. The confirmed confidence built between our company and our subscribers is our best promoting tract.
