CisionPoint’s news archive now integrates print content from LexisNexis
LONDON, 28th June, 2011 – Cision, the leading provider of PR software, services and tools for the media and public relations industry, and LexisNexis®, a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions, today announced a strategic alliance that will provide targeted UK and international news content from LexisNexis to Cision clients.
Available from today, the award-winning CisionPoint PR software platform will give Cision customers access to an extensive archive of LexisNexis content to monitor and analyse news coverage. Cision’s clients will be able to search the LexisNexis content database, receive alerts as new content is posted and quickly understand what’s being said about their organisation, brands, competitors or almost any topic across the globe - all accessible through CisionPoint’s online language translation tool. As well as providing effective monitoring for print media, it can also be used as a powerful planning and research tool to uncover key industry topics and influencers from the news archive. Cision’s news archive search tool already provides real-time access to online media and broadcast and is now enhanced with print content from LexisNexis.
“This is a perfect match between two industry leaders,” said Tosh Bruce-Morgan, UK Managing Director of Cision. “Integrating best-in-class LexisNexis content with CisionPoint will deliver tremendous additional value to our customers, whose competitive edge relies upon their access to the best and most up-to-date media information. This strategic partnership represents our continued commitment to working with the best providers to deliver the best content to our global client base.”
“This alliance brings public relations professionals the best of both worlds, providing them with a more efficient end-to-end solution,” said James Ritchie, Head of Channel Partnerships at LexisNexis UK. “The LexisNexis channel strategy is to work with chosen partners whose best of breed solutions for specific functions or industries can be enhanced by integrating our market leading collection of premium licensed content. Our alliance with Cision is a great example of this strategy in practice.”
