Overall Satisfaction with Meltwater Media Intelligence Platform

Our company mostly utilizes as a social listening tool. It gives one tool and provides automated reports for any social mentions.
  • Finding media contacts.
  • News in one place.
  • Quick response from their team when issues arise.
  • Implementation process.
  • Training.
  • No way to monitor ROI.
  • Additional time spent learning new tool.
We currently have both platforms.
After we purchased the tool, our team was given a login and a training site, and then we were left to "dig in" for ourselves. After struggling with getting the tool implemented, I asked for a call and did get some assistance, but could use many more calls to learn the platform. There are lots of on-demand training, but with such a robust tool, it would be nice for some 1-1 training, especially for the price paid.

I will say that when reaching out to their customer support team, they are extremely quick to respond or assist as they can.
