Vocus has provided us with one comprehensive PR management system
Lanham, MD (PRWEB) August 1, 2005
Vocus, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand software for corporate communications and public relations, announced today that South Jersey Industries has selected Vocus software to help automate and manage its public relations. South Jersey Industries (NYSE:SJI) is an energy services holding company. Its largest subsidiary, South Jersey Gas provides natural gas service to over 315,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in New Jersey.
According to Joanne Brigandi, director of corporate communications, South Jersey Gas, they had used several disparate PR tools that did not produce the results they needed. They were looking for one complete solution to manage all their corporate communications needs. They wanted to replace the manual process of obtaining and a distributing hard copy news clip, which was unwieldy, time consuming and did not enable them to provide timely reporting of coverage.
"Vocus has provided us with one comprehensive PR management system," said Brigandi. "We are able to research members of the media, create targeted lists, track press conversations, distribute press releases, electronically monitor our news and report on our results all in one easy-to-use software suite."
