We are delighted to announce that Viralheat is joining forces with Cision.

We started Viralheat in 2011 with the prescient belief that social media would ultimately be a massive opportunity to apply big data science. The meteoric rise of social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more has proven their hypothesis right. Today, more than 2 billion people around the world are active users on social platforms, and the vast torrent of tweets, posts, and images they generate represents both a huge data challenge and opportunity for brands.

Viralheat joins Cision

Viralheat was founded to deliver the next generation of technology to help brands monitor, analyze and engage across social media platforms. Over the last year, the company has been at the forefront of the merging of social and content marketing, combined in a fully unified product that provides brands with an easy-to-use, scalable, and seamless product to manage the full spectrum of their social media initiatives.

Today marks the beginning of our next chapter in extending to the PR space the converge of social media and content marketing. We are excited to announce that Viralheat will now be part of Cision, the leading global media intelligence company. Cision complements and expands our overall value proposition by building out the industry’s most comprehensive suite of marketing engagement tools. This alliance also positions us well for the future by strengthening our financial and technical resources.

Cision have been a leader in the PR space with such well-known brands as Vocus, PRWeb and Cision itself. This combination of Cision and Viralheat will bring even greater value to our customers.

In closing, we want to thank our investors, advocates, supporters and customers for your support and trust in our vision. Most of all, we want to thank our employees, whose enthusiasm, hard work and can-do attitude have made Viralheat the company it is today.
