We are very pleased with Cision and would recommend it to any public relations team, especially in the fashion industry.
- Michelle McWilliams, Director of Public Relations

This is an awesome tool!
- Alex Sten, The Coleman Company, Inc

The Lupus Research Institute chooses PR Newswire to distribute press releases because the pick-up and results monitoring is better than any other service we have tried. We once used another service and the following year went with PR Newswire - the difference in pick-up was significant so we never looked back. Also, we appreciate that our release lives on the PR Newswire website so it is easily accessed.
- Margy Meislin, Director of Communications, Lupus Research Institute and S.L.E. Lupus Foundation
PR Newswire has been our agency's #1 'go-to' wire service for decades. They have always provided superior online media coverage in terms of both quantity and quality due to the influential news and content partnerships they forged. In addition, PR Newswire's Visibility Reports allow us to track our clients' press release performance along with them in real time, for optimum media relations and social media marketing. CreightonPR has occasionally tried out other wire services to compare and always immediately returns to PR Newswire because their reach and results are simply unparalleled in the industry.
- Heidi Creighton Ciampa, President, CreightonPR
MultiVu came to us as a true partner. Their team is responsive, innovative, professional and results-oriented, always coming up with the solutions we asked for — but also providing additional counsel context that gives us and our clients another perspective, which leads to even better results. For example, we saw a huge uptick in our client's e-commerce business and seeing our work in the back of NYC taxis was even more rewarding. MultiVu is genuinely invested in our success, as they recognize it's related to theirs.
- Rum Ekhtiar, Executive Vice President, Ruder Finn
As a long time PR newswire customer and active member of PRSA and our local public relations community, PR Newswire is recognized as a brand of excellence within our industry. Every aspect of account management and service is a great experience. From the initial touch point, to evaluating the service options that will be best for our firm and our clientele […], working with PR Newswire is a pleasure. Access to industryleading services, great account service, training, and industry research allows us to continue to elevate PR practice and related services. As a boutique firm, that's a great advantage.
- Tracy Teuscher, President, THE BUZZ MAKER!
We chose Cision because it offered a fully-integrated package of monitoring, analytics and a media contacts database. We could not find a similar platform that provided all of these services and that does a better job at finding our media mentions.
- Dean Forbes, Media Relations Specialist, Seattle University
The industry’s response to the news was outstanding. We even had a couple financial analysts upgrade our stock based on this news, which on its own is just incredible.
- Mark Plungy, Director, Public Relations at Varian Medical System
Cision is a dynamic platform that allow us to have everything in one place, while giving us concrete data on our audience. Plus our personal account executive is always in standby to solve our needs.
- Javier Diaz, Account Executive, GCYA USA
I want to invest my very limited time in getting to know the journalists that are driving my field, not those that are reporting on the direction it is going. The Cision database curates search results based on the language in a journalist's profile, not the use of words in one particular story.
- Christopher J. Wells, Communications Director
Yesterday, we landed massive media coverage worldwide, and including pretty much every major western media outlet, from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal, from CNN to FOX, from NPR to BBC, we ran the table. Cision/Vocus played a critical role in that smashing success.
- Greg Hittelman, Communications Director, The Sentry (www.thesentry.org)
We are really impressed with the ability to develop media lists quickly and have the option for custom lists at our fingertips.
- Mike Miller, Media Relations Manager, JetBlue
As my marketing and public relations firm grew, efficiency and time management became paramount. Researching individual reporters to find their contact information was quite cumbersome. Cision’s media database allows us to quickly identify and procure contact information for reporters who are potential fits for our clients. As we’ve continued growing, Cision has become integral to how we deliver results for our clients. Cision has paid for itself and then some.
- Eric Fischgrund, FischTank
Cision’s client service is top notch and they are always willing to work with you no matter the issue at hand (even if it may be after business hours). It’s the people that really make these services worthwhile, and Cision hires those who truly understand the needs and urgency of the agency PR person and client accounts.
- Mike Banas, Account Supervisor
Typically, the level of functionality found in Cision is beyond the reach of a small agency budget, but settling with another vendor usually means additional manual searches and queries—adding more time and expense to the PR process. From the beginning, Cision has partnered with McCoin & Smith Communications to accommodate our growth and offer the right products and functionality to match our budget. Today, the software is an integral part of our operations and the latest upgrades are only making it easier for us to serve our clients. With the growing number of choices, we strongly recommend that any small consultancy or agency take a look at Cision… it’s definitely not out of reach.
- Richard Smith, Principal
We chose to partner with Cision after reviewing over 15 social listening companies and finding Cision was far and away the best partner for Vscore.
- Mark Hoebich, President Digital Products
I have been using Cision for several years and their service is impeccable. They are available 24/7 to help you when you need technical assistance or have any questions about your account.

Their reps are always available to us at a moment’s notice, and a pleasure to work with.

- Nivene Judeh, Content Marketing Analyst
Cision won our hearts decisively, with excellent social media access, traditional media and the ability to weight stories pro/con/neutral ourselves rather than using their weighting system. Pubs go down to community paper level, and the interface is very intuitive.
- Margaret Lisi, VP, Communications
Cision’s user-friendly interface, top-notch customer service and up-to-date media contact information is the reason why it’s been bookmarked on my toolbar (next to The New York Times) since I started my PR career back in 2005. Cision is the PR bible and an invaluable coworker in the ever changing media landscape.

Today we still find that PRN has the broadest reach to journalists, investor targets and Internet databases. PRN continues to be innovative in new product offerings to serve clients, and PRN is able to customize products and services to meet a client's communications needs.
