Stephanie Slingerland, Senior Manager, Corporate Communications

CisionPoint has greatly simplified our media processes. The platform allows us to quickly gauge volume of coverage and its impact, locate reporters, expedite reports to senior executives, delineate prominent themes and much more. Best of all, it integrates a variety of media items into one central tool, which allows us to be more proactive and frees up time for other tasks.



Eric Fischgrund, Founder

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.”

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.

McCoin & Smith Communications Inc.

Richard Smith, Principal, McCoin & Smith Communications Inc.

Typically, the level of functionality found in CisionPoint 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.

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.
