I would (and do) recommend 3BL Professional to any company/org trying to expand the reach of it's CR programs. Often communications is how we justify the budget for our program work (communications help us increase brand reputation, reach potential employees, reach investors and ESG analysts). The 3BL platform is an incredible way to get your impacts and initiatives out to the world so that people know about the incredible programs you're running. Would recommend for any CR/ESG/Sustainability team.

Since this platform is so easy to use when creating or managing communication workflows, it is recommended to work mostly with scenarios that generally require several processes to complete each group management, for example, to cover from the follow-up of employees within the communications team to the management of the team's communication processes.

Cons
3BL
  • Could use detailed description of difference between page views and impressions and how these are differently experienced by people who could see the content on various channels
  • It would help to know a ballpark figure of impressions served up by Reuters, AP and other services that pickup 3BL content
  • It would help if quarterly reporting could track with our fiscal year quarters instead of calendar year quarters

  • The contact management system is a little wonky but it has improved over the last two years and I expect that trend to continue.
  • The grouping system (segments) and tagging is not intuitive. I've had many missteps in trying to get content to particular segments while deselecting individuals.
  • You cannot add another group of people to a distribution without going back and recreating the same distribution. you can add individuals but not groups.

Prezly is much more user-friendly than Cision but isn't as robust. The pricing is similar and I believe Prezly beats it out a bit. Overall, the UI is much better in Prezly giving it the edge.
