Business Wire

We are highly satisfied with this tool and according to me, it is favorable in all aspects for the people that want to strengthen their links with the Publics either internal or external. It has the capability to manage relations and disseminates information to the business community. But it is not suitable when it comes to reports and its customer service.

TVEyes

Simply put, TVEyes is a wonderful monitoring suite that enables us to quickly access broadcast clips from campaigns we run on behalf of our clients. It's far more efficient than the old-school tape delivery companies, but it does have room for improvement. If you're running a campaign that's likely to result in broadcast coverage, TVEyes is probably the best option for monitoring and reporting. The same holds true if you are running a paid media campaign that includes added-value broadcast elements.

Pros

Business Wire

  • Proofing - Business Wire proofs every single release with great precision, and calls you to let you know if they think anything looks like it might be a typo. They are extremely thorough and also check with you about the way you want images or video laid out with the release so that the final presentation is perfect.
  • Customer Service - Business Wire has some of the best customer service I've ever experienced. They are available 24 hours a day, and always have someone manning the phones to answer your questions, proof releases, and make sure your release gets across the wire at the right time.
  • Interface - The Business Wire site is very easy to use, and saves previously used information and images like logos. This is standard for most wire services, but Business Wire does a good job as well.
  • Reach - BW reaches a very wide range of outlets, and its relationships with VentureBeat, Yahoo! and MarketWatch are great. Clients really appreciate seeing their releases in those publications.

TVEyes

  • TVEyes has a powerful search function that allows us to narrow searches for specific clients and/or campaigns by keyword.
  • TVEyes affords us the ability to access and download a clip with relative ease, no matter what market or station the clip is from.
  • TVEyes provides metrics for the sake of reporting, which enables us to quickly provide insights to clients on the success of a campaign.

Cons

Business Wire

  • There have been a few times when a minor grammatical error has slipped by myself as well as the copy editors but it's very rare for this to happen.
  • The cost can get a bit high if your press release is long (as price is partially dictated by length) or if you want to add a logo, image, infographic, etc.

TVEyes

  • The clip editing feature, while useful and important, is fairly clunky. There could be an improvement in the way you fine-tune what you need.
  • Downloading clips is a multi-step process that could be far less involved.

It's the best service we have used. We have tried a competitor and everyone prefers Business Wire.

Usability

Business Wire

Business Wire 7.3
Based on 1 answer
I gave it this rating because the Business Wire website is very user-friendly. Being able to navigate the platform on my own without technical assistance made it possible for me to quickly and easily submit news release distributions, which can be critical at times, such as during hurricane season when we need to get information out to the news media and our customers quickly.

I have only used their support on one release, but they were very good. They were able to troubleshoot my problem in a timely manner, and get my release out on time, even with some hiccups. I would definitely recommend reaching if you ever encounter any problems with their service.

Business Wire is very easy to implement. This isn't a requirement, but it's recommended that you begin to set up saved distributions for different clients so that you don't have to start over from scratch. Rather than doing all this work on the front end, you can just do it as you send out your first piece of news for each client.

Alternatives Considered

Business Wire

Business Wire is known to reach a significant range of audiences, where more marketing and information sharing is attained. Again, Business Wire supports any form of customization, more so on content, to bring the right picture which would entice and give hope to customers. Lastly, the press release from Business Wire is in different languages, hence, globally acceptable.

TVEyes

TVEyes offers better pricing and easier access when compared to the Critical Mention platform. It's also easier to use and faster. Cision and Meltwater just don't offer the same depth of access to coverage as TVEyes. TrendKite is a complementary piece of software we use in-house for media monitoring, and they just partnered with TVEyes for broadcast coverage, so there's a lot of consistency in what we're monitoring and reporting.

  • Staying updated on business news in my team's industry
  • Helps my team generate story ideas for our publication, allowing us to do our jobs more efficiently

TVEyes

  • It's essential to be able to share coverage with clients, and clients can be impatient. TVEyes gives us the ability to access and share a clip quickly. That keeps clients happy.
  • The cost of the subscription is fairly low in exchange for the ability to access a universal broadcast coverage platform like TVEyes.
