CHICAGO (September 29, 2016) — Cision has been named a  Leader  in the  Best Media Monitoring Software  report for Summer 2016 by G2 Crowd, the world’s leading software review platform. The reports, distributed seasonally by G2 Crowd, help businesses make the best media monitoring technology decision.

Products distinguished as Leaders offer media monitoring products that are rated highly by G2 Crowd users and have substantial scale, market share, and global support and service resources. According to G2 Crowd s Media Monitoring Software scoring grid, Cision earned the highest overall satisfaction score and the highest overall market presence score out of the 24 considered products. The customer satisfaction data used to determine the scoring is gathered from  authenticated users along with vendor market presence determined from social and public data. 

 We are really excited to see Cision named as a leader in the media monitoring software space through direct feedback by users. We are dedicated to providing a best-in-class solution for PR, IR, and marketing practitioners,   said Cision CEO, Kevin Akeroyd.  G2 Crowd is an informative source of information for software buyers and we are pleased to be recognized. 

G2 Crowd describes its Grid  rating methodology as being representative of  the democratic voice of real software users, rather than the subjective opinion of one analyst.  G2 Crowd  rates media monitoring products algorithmically based on data sourced from product reviews shared by G2 Crowd users and data aggregated from online sources and social networks.
