As the media landscape changes and Cision constantly evolves to stay more than a step ahead, one thing remains the same—our commitment to helping communicators power their stories.
We started as the advertising department of Svenska Telegrambyrån—a company providing press clipping services in Sweden—in 1892. Since then we’ve added a media database, distribution services, comprehensive monitoring, a content marketing platform and media analysis to our product offerings. Over the years we’ve operated under different names such as Observer, Romeike, Bacon’s and Bowdens.
Integrated and rebranded
We rebranded as Cision in 2007. Today, Cision is the market leader in PR software and services, with operations in Europe, North America and Asia and partners in 125 countries.
We’ve always been the world’s leading source of media research—from our earliest printed media catalogs bearing the last name of our founder Robert H. Bacon, to Cision’s current online database listing more than 1.6 million contacts, outlets and opportunities. Our innovative solutions help PR and marketing professionals plan, connect, monitor and analyze every aspect of their campaigns. Our commitment to innovation is ceaseless, as we continue to create the tools communicators will be using tomorrow to power their stories.
