Not only do charts show executives our total impact versus competitors, they also reveal opportunities and threats, thereby providing a solid foundation for strategic planning.
LANHAM, MD (PRWEB) November 2, 2005
Vocus, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand software for corporate communications and public relations, today announced the availability of Vocus Prominence Scoring, a new software product that enables PR professionals to better analyze media mentions and coverage. Purchased with Vocus Analytics, Vocus Prominence Scoring helps PR professionals better measure the impact of their news coverage, providing a foundation for long-term strategic planning of PR activities.
Vocus Prominence Scoring helps organizations calculate the prominence and impact of their news coverage. Using a proprietary formula, Vocus Prominence Scoring automatically measures the value of a news clipping based on the exclusivity, prominence, and tone of the mentions; and the relevance of the publication to the customer. In addition to providing immediate analysis of their media coverage, Vocus Prominence Scoring helps PR professionals more effectively manage and deliver value from their corporate communications efforts.
Vocus clients have received Vocus Prominence Scoring enthusiastically. Summer Thomas, Media Information Specialist at Bass Pro Shops, has found it to be an unrivalled resource.
"Vocus Prominence Scoring is a vital product that we use both in proving our worth to management and in simply doing a better job,” said Thomas. “Not only do charts show executives our total impact versus competitors, they also reveal opportunities and threats, thereby providing a solid foundation for strategic planning."
