  • User friendly
  • Reporting and Metrics
  • Integration with Cision Communications Cloud
  • Pricing is very expensive
PR Newswire MediaRoom is well suited for news release distribution over a wide geographic area, such as an entire state or region. Because of the cost, it's not well suited for a news release that targets a small area, such as just one city or community.

We receive PR Newswire and sometimes will use info from that in stories published online by my company. It is something helpful when trying to pull needed information that an entity or school will put out to get their word out. It helps us just put in info without having to track down more info.
  • It gets info we need to us rather quickly.
  • It gets the message across that an organization is trying to convey to us.
  • We don't have to "hunt down" sources at times to get what we need. It's just there for us.
  • It sometimes reads as too "PR-y."
  • It could have more quotes.
  • Sometimes it can be bombarding with info that doesn't even relate to what we are trying to get across to our readers.
It's well-suited when trying to push a product or idea that doesn't need much elaboration. At times we need information and it's just there, like a magic trick from a brilliant magic man.
An area of improvement is not coming across so "PR-y." But I guess that's the job of the person writing it and a news person's job to decipher it.

PR Newswire MediaRoom Review: "The importance of online newsrooms"

PR Newswire Mediaroom is used by our communications team in support of our client projects that require additional PR support. It helps us accomplish our goals of improving SEO for announcements, as well as serving as a central hub of information for journalists as it relates to campaign launches, product launches, etc.
  • PR Newswire is the market leader in Newswire distribution
  • Mediaroom serves as a central hub, i.e., providing facts, figures, images, video, etc., all in one place
  • Mediaroom is easy to use, especially if you don't have internal web/digital resources
  • Mediaroom can lead to redundancies of hosted information
  • Mediaroom can take traffic aware from your web presence
  • Overall costs can be high
PR Newswire Mediaroom is best suited for those clients launching campaigns and for those particular clients that may lack traditional online media rooms and/or the ability to tap internal digital/web resources to host information, campaign photos, infographics, statistics, bios, video, etc., that you would typically find in a traditional online media newsroom.
