It is the best took for media tracking and provides outstanding coverage and meaningful graphics and charts to help communicate monthly results at a very fair market price (great value versus competition) and interfaces with other major media platforms so our monthly data is merged and ready for monthly reporting

While I am happy with the product performance overall, TrendKite's recent merger with Cision is cause for concern. When we first signed on with TrendKite, I spoke with several users and the best response I received was that the company was a startup and we could expect there to be hiccups along the way as the company grew and the platform got more robust. That has certainly been the case. However, now that they have merged with Cision — a company that has grown too fast, has not focused on improving its product and has poor customer service — I have concerns that TrendKite will lose some of the qualities that have made it a great company and great product to work with.

For all of the reasons I had mentioned before, I haven't found a product that surpasses what they offer. I will maintain renewing with them for a few years and then reexamine the market to see if any new competitors arise. Until then, I have no reason to leave them for someone else.

There was a major outage of the service earlier this year, rendering the system unusable for the better part of a day and partially during the following day. It was very difficult to get information about what was happening until I persisted and finally got to talk with a supervisor. Cision did not send me (and presumably others) real time updates, so those of us who had to issue news releases on those days were left in the lurch.

Despite a steep learning curve in the beginning, through unwavering customer support and a unique product offering I highly recommend Cision. It seems that this company is always looking to improve upon itself and its customer experience. As the company continues to grow there is no doubt in my mind that it will continue to add value to your company's distributions through an ever increasing media database and detailed tracking.
