SPH Search Pte Ltd, a joint venture between local media giant Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and Norwegian media group Schibsted ASA, has launched a nation-wide project to collect business data of all companies in Singapore, SPH said yesterday. The initial data collection process will take three to six months. The business data collection exercise is the venture's first step towards building and enhancing a comprehensive database, which it will make available to the public. The database will form one element of the core products of SPH Search's offering at its launch next year, SPH said. SPH Search aims to provide Singapore's first online search engine focusing on all things local.
