CNW launches new investor relations website solution

TORONTO, March 12, 2013 /CNW/ - CNW, Canada's leading newswire and provider of investor relations services, today announced the launch of IR Room and the IR Room App, two new investor relations solutions designed to help Canadian IR professionals manage and optimize their website and mobile communication strategies.

IR Room is a full-service website hosting platform specifically designed for publicly-traded Canadian companies. The service includes website management tools (featuring automated news release posting and financial data web pages) as well as news release feeds and data widgets for those companies who don't require a full website hosting platform, but still need dynamic content for their website.

An update to CNW's IR website solutions, which launched in 2003, IR Room's key new enhancements include: Inbound Investor Targeting, which allows investor relations departments to measure the effectiveness of their outbound communications and gain a deeper understanding of their current stakeholders, enhanced social media integration (including StockTwits and Slideshare embedding), and full support for CNW's multimedia-rich newsfeed.

The IR Room App provides companies with their own easy-to-launch mobile app for smart devices. Integrated directly with the IR Room Content Management System, the app provides investor relations professionals with a single-step workflow to simultaneously update both their browser-based and mobile device shareholder communications.

"To put it simply, IR Room was designed to help make the lives of IR professionals easier," said Tim Griffin, VP of Product at CNW. "By automating many of the processes that would otherwise have to be done manually, IR Room saves our clients time and resources and also helps mitigate the risk of human error. Additionally, the new features we're introducing with IR Room will help our clients better communicate with their stakeholders in today's increasingly social media and mobile-focused world."

IR professionals are invited to request a demonstration of IR Room and IR Room App here.
