Cision Recognized as a Leader in Media Monitoring Software

Cision Receives Strong Customer Satisfaction Scores from Unbiased Third-Party Reviews

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Cision has been named a "Leader" in the "Best Media Monitoring Software" report by G2 Crowd, the world's leading software review platform, for Summer 2016. The reports, distributed seasonally by G2 Crowd, helps consumers make smart and strategic decisions around media monitoring technology.

Products distinguished as Leaders offer media monitoring products that are rated highly by G2 Crowd users and have substantial scale, market share, and global support and service resources. According to G2 Crowd's Media Monitoring Software scoring grid, Cision earned the highest overall satisfaction score and the highest overall market presence score out of all 24 considered products. The customer satisfaction data used to determine the scoring is gathered from "authenticated users along with vendor market presence determined from social and public data."

"We are really excited to see Cision named as a leader in the media monitoring software space through direct feedback by users. We are dedicated to providing a best-in-class solution for PR, IR, and marketing practitioners," said Kevin Akeroyd, CEO, Cision. "G2 Crowd is an informative source of information for software buyers and we are pleased to be recognized."

G2 Crowd describes its Grid(SM) rating methodology as representing "the democratic voice of real software users, rather than the subjective opinion of one analyst." G2 Crowd "rates media monitoring products algorithmically based on data sourced from product reviews shared by G2 Crowd users and data aggregated from online sources and social networks."

Cision's media monitoring software allows users to:

  • Find the right influencers - Build smarter media lists to connect with the right influencers
  • Share their stories - Distribute content with one simple tool
  • Reach new audiences - Promote brand stories by engaging audiences on top tier websites
  • Track their stories - Identify the social conversations and influencers that impact their brands
  • Analyze impact - Understand the effectiveness of campaigns with media analysis and executive reporting
