Overall Satisfaction with Cision Communications Cloud

The marketing team uses press release distribution.
  • People who call to verify are friendly.
  • People who call to verify do so in a timely fashion.
  • Account rep changes all the time.
  • User interface is from the 90s.
  • Renewal date is 3 months out - a lot can change in 3 months in a small co.
  • Prices are too high for the value. Other companies charge WAY less.
  • I paid for a graphic and didn't know I could use it for all releases. Again - bad UI.
  • I felt trapped in a contract that I didn't want due to the renewal timeline.
  • I feel I can do better with MUCH less expensive options (e.g. PR Underground).
  • No real value for the price.
I also used Social Media Targeting and Monitoring briefly when it was TrendKite. It was a good tool, but we weren't a large enough company to derive value from it.

Do you think Cision Communications Cloud delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Cision Communications Cloud's feature set?


Did Cision Communications Cloud live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Cision Communications Cloud go as expected?


Would you buy Cision Communications Cloud again?


If you are a big company and need to satisfy filing needs/EDGAR, maybe this is a good fit? Not a fit for SMBs/start-ups.
