Lanham, MD (PRWEB) January 9, 2007
Vocus, Inc., (NASDAQ: VOCS) a leading provider of on-demand software for corporate communications and public relations, announced today that Waffle House Restaurants (Waffle House) has chosen Vocus to help manage and enhance its public relations efforts. Using Vocus PR management solution's integrated news monitoring and measurement, Waffle House will effectively promote its long-standing reputation for customer service around the country.
According to Charnae Knight, PR Manager, Waffle House, the company's manual and disparate PR tools made it difficult to track and evaluate the results of PR activities. To help understand PR's role in promoting the company's ideals and message, Knight sought an integrated solution to track and compile the company's news coverage as well as provide complete analysis on the results of coverage and media activities. Vocus PR software's integrated news monitoring and analysis offered Knight real-time insight into media outreach and campaigns and Vocus' built-in reporting tools made it easy to share results of PR efforts with key stakeholders.
"Vocus PR software has taken the guess-work out of our public relations efforts," said Knight. "Vocus' measurement and reporting features give us a clear and concise picture of the results and success of our media programs. As an added bonus, we can easily compile and distribute this information to our executives and other key contacts throughout the company."
