  • Real-time journalist requests from Twitter directly to the CisionPoint home page.
  • New personalisation options – Users can easily tailor CisionPoint to gain more relevant insight into new media contacts and editorial opportunities.  Based on individual preferences, users can view any relevant changes to their media lists to uncover new influencers or see new forward features and events that are relevant to their topic of interest.
  • Improved news distribution and analytics – CisionPoint’s redesigned news distribution wizard makes it easier than ever to optimise news releases for search engines; publish news to social media, news websites and wire channels; measure web performance of press releases; and send targeted messages. 
  • Enhanced campaign integration – CisionPoint already provides valuable integration so users can build media lists, connect with influencers, monitor results across all media and gain insight into campaign performance.  The latest release integrates more social media features, enabling users to seamlessly manage their campaigns in a few simple steps.

“The new CisionPoint release represents the third-generation of our global PR and marketing software platform. The latest enhancements are based on feedback from our clients about what they’re looking for in a PR solution and also the demands of an ever-changing market. It works the way today’s PR professionals work: multi-tasking in real-time, engaging with multiple contacts, depending on the best and most up-to-date media and influencer information available,” said Tosh Bruce-Morgan, Managing Director of Cision UK.

“Today’s media relations is about networked engagement.
