Overall Satisfaction with Business Wire

Business Wire is used across the editorial department of my company. Our teams use the site to browse what is going on in each of our industries and also help generate story ideas for potential future content. It helps us keep up-to-date on our industries, including business developments, product launches, talent appointments, etc.
  • Separates content based on industry or subject matter
  • Organized chronologically so you can keep up with what you missed since your last visit
  • Press releases come in a variety of languages
  • I can't find a way to always filter out non-English language press releases
  • The search function doesn't typically bring up relevant content
  • I would love to see more photo, video, or additional multimedia content included in the press releases, where applicable
  • 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
I prefer Business Wire to PR Newswire because it is easier to navigate and browse by my selected industries. I do not feel the same way about PR Newswire, though I use both to ensure I am gathering as much information as possible in case one site missed news that the other may have.
Business Wire is extremely suited for news gathering purposes, which is what most of my team and colleagues use the site for. It helps up stay up-to-date on major news in our industry and also helps us to generate ideas for potential future stories for our publication. It takes some time to navigate, but the site is useful if you have the time to dive deep and browse. For those looking for a quick hit of business news, perhaps this is not ideal.
