"Unmatched media monitoring"

What do you like best?

Newsdesk is very easy to use! Detailed analytics provide at-a-glance data about the performance of search terms, key messages, company spokespersons and reputation management campaigns. LexisNexis provides the most comprehensive licensed content, as well. Search is relatively simple and intuitive. And the customer service can't be beat; they are always there to help troubleshoot, set up a new search or dashboard, or train new users on the platform.

What do you dislike?

I would love to see more customized templates and non-Boolean search options. But other than that, I'm very happy with the tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

LexisNexis provides our comprehensive media monitoring services. In addition, we use this tool for competitive intelligence and to identify reporters or media outlets with which our clients should align. It's a great way to stay on top of what's happening in our clients' industries.

"Best tool ever for media monitoring - unlimited search"

What do you like best?

Unlimited Search, sources and geographies unlike Meltwater or Carma that we have been using in the past that make you pay per keyword per region,

I also like the Dashboard and newsletter/ alert showing results in real time

I also like the versatility of the solution to do more than just monitoring a press release but do so much more not only in the communication space but accross all departments

What do you dislike?

the design of newsdesk could have been better, they could have made it closer to the actual standard but doesnt change anything regarding the content (print and online) or all those bits and piece that make this a great tool

Recommendations to others considering the product

once you start using Newsdesk you can realize how much you can do, not only for PR but for so much more.

our legal department use it to track regulations

our Supply chain department use it to monitor our third parties

Marketing use it, Sales use it and obviously our communication too

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using newsdesk for more that what we purchased it for

- Competitor analysis

- regulation tracking

- press coverage

- research

- new business

- internal newsletters

- reporting

What Media and Influencer Targeting solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Using LexisNexis Newsdesk in higher education"

What do you like best?

Excellent daily reporting and links to audio and video. I have it set to report three times a day to my email and it has often allowed us to react quickly to reporting that requires our attention.

What do you dislike?

I have not figured out a good way to eliminate all repetitive reporting. There are also results that come from allied institutions that use part of our name, but aren't us. Hard to figure out how to eliminate that noise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thoroughly monitoring media hits. It captures more than any other tool I have used.

"Useful Tool"

What do you like best?

LexisNexis is a very useful tool in researching both topics and people. It gives a national look at an affordable price, going more in-depth than many research tools when digging into public governmental records and records on the web.

The tool could be more comprehensive in terms of what it includes so you know what has already been covered when researching a tropic.

"Good way to find print content"

What do you like best?

Easy to navigate search results, advanced search, speed with which print hits are uploaded and searchable.

What do you dislike?

Advanced search could have more parameters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy way to find print sources in one place. I can't have a subscription to every print outlet that my clients might be mentioned in, so this is a good way for me to keep track of the hits in outlets that I don't receive physical copies of.
