Cision’s Award-Winning Software Now Available on Google Chrome and Top 2 Operating Environments for Smartphones and Tablets

CHICAGO, December 13, 2011 – Cision, the leading provider of PR software, services and tools for the marketing and public relations industry, today announced that the best-in-class Cision Media Database is now available to users of smartphones and tablet computers with the world’s two most popular mobile operating systems – iOS (for Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android.

Cision also announced that its CisionPoint campaign management platform is now certified on Google Chrome and has named Chrome as its preferred browser. It released a browser extension for Chrome users that lets marketers and communicators search for journalists and digital influencers directly from Chrome’s tool bar.

“The enterprise mobility revolution and widespread use of smart phones and tablets has truly mobilized the world of business,” said Peter Granat, President and Chief Operating Officer of Cision North America. “Our customers who use iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices can log onto Cision ‘on the go,’ experience enhanced performance, and perform critical campaign management tasks.”

Users can:

  • Search for a media or influencer contact
  • Call, email or access their Twitter handle
  • View the contact’s influencer rating
  • Search for similar contacts by geography, topic, industry or publication
  • View profiles or pitching tips
  • Use “reverse look-up” from phone numbers and email addresses to locate contact profiles

The Cision mobile and Google Chrome extensions are currently in Beta and are free to users of the Cision Media Database.

“Communicators must simplify and enhance their ability to effectively tell their stories to important audiences,” Granat said. “Extending Cision’s software to the most popular mobile and browser platforms empowers more PR and marketing pros to engage influencers, media and customers, shape reputations, and generate awareness, leads and sales.”

Cision, winner of the 2011 CODiE Award as the Best Marketing/PR Solution from the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA), is now fully supported on the world’s three top browsers: Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
