ARchitect

If you have an AR program across the globe and want to track all interactions you have with them, this tool is right for you. As you can imagine the tool is only as good as the data you put in, so you do have to make it part of your work day to input the data. Say a team member leaves and you have to jump in to cover for them, you are able to see all the interactions they have had with analysts

Marketwired

If you want to guarantee 5-8 pieces of online coverage for a news story, then Marketwired is worth using. It's cost-effective and the news often appears on news syndication sites that wouldn't otherwise feature it (Yahoo Finance, Canadian Business, Bloomsberg etc.).If you want to get news coverage on the radio, in print, and on TV, then you're still better emailing it directly to the news outlet and picking up the phone. It's much more time-intensive, but a lot more effective.

Pros

ARchitect

  • Intuitive information fields capture the things that AR practitioners must archive
  • Easy to use reporting makes the dissemination of information to key stakeholders efficient
  • The customer support is second to none

Marketwired

  • Easy to use dashboard with pre-selected newslines and industries.
  • Quite a comprehensive results dashboard that details the outreach of where your releases go.
  • For non-online releases (they just recently changed this), an editor will call you to verify your releases and they are very detailed in reading your article for any grammatical errors and other recommendations.

Cons

ARchitect

  • Use of the finder feature is a little cumbersome
  • The email editor is better but still a little fiddly compared to the likes of Mailchimp
  • Adding in new contacts is a little tedious process
  • Removing analysts no longer with an organisation - in transit is a little onerous

Marketwired

  • Incorporation of social media would be helpful.
  • More customization of distribution lists.
  • Additional niche specialty areas for distribution.

In the instances I have had issues its been a little tricky to figure things out, some of the videos are helpful but getting email responses are not great compared to online chat and I have found that the response rates have been more than a day in some instances which is not as responsive as I would like compared to other platforms

Alternatives Considered

ARchitect

Prior to using ARchitect, we were using Salesforce. While we did have some customization added, it did not nearly have the robustness that ARchitect provides -- especially since it is designed for AR professionals. We've been using ARchitect for about 8 years and have never looked back. Some examples of vast improvements: 1. Analyst firms/bios. With Salesforce, we needed to maintain all analyst bios -- something that ARchitect does.2. Analyst coverage. We used to track all analyst coverage by visiting multiple analyst websites and manually pasting into spreadsheets. We now not only get a feed of coverage that can be exported into Excel, but we can also customize reports by topic.3. Reporting. Salesforce did not provide the same reporting capabilities that ARchitect provides.

Marketwired

I find Marketwired comparable to slightly better than CNW and Business Wire. For smaller companies listed on the TSX Venture, CSE or OTC, their money is better spent on TheNewswire.com.

Return on Investment

ARchitect

  • This is difficult to say, but a higher ROI would be demonstrated when there's more overlap in analyst foci, i.e. when more than one analyst relations manager deals with the same analyst

Marketwired

  • Definitely no negative impact - and positive impact: we get to offer our clients additional services that we wouldn't be able to do without Marketwired.
