"I'm a one-man PR department for a large food cooperative ($72 million)"

What do you like best?

Prezly does what is promises. Our releases are easy to create, modify from multiple platforms (mostly), and I'm able to quickly dash-out a press release in minutes. Well worth the price and our news page looks as good as most any I've seen -- even compared to the "big boys."

What do you dislike?

There are a few quirks that I've yet to grumble about to Prezly (they are very, very responsive). Those that come to mind are duplicating a release to created a slightly different version. The new release seems to retain link naming. For instance, I created a draft with a title that included the name of an elected representative. I duplicated to highlight another Rep. I wanted to clearly see difference in titles (behind the scenes) to avoid a mistake in delivery/audience. When I was sending the duplicated/modified version (link) from my desktop email, I noticed the previous version-title included the name of the first congressional Rep. I caught it, but don't know how to change it in the system. (I'm sure time with a Prezly Rep could straighten this out -- they are really great!). I did a work-around with a bit.ly url. I share all this NOT as a complaint, but rather a means of a tip for future users. I have no qualms recommending Prezly. It is great. Not perfect, but damn close for this time-stressed user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a solid company with people who understand the concept of service after the sale. Within my comments I mentioned that I struggle with a few quirks. I am certain -- based on my experience with the team at Prezly -- that if I took the time to discuss these minor issues with them, the solution would be delivered in days, not weeks.

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

"The perfect tool to keep up with your PR"

What do you like best?

The interface is really user-friendly. You can navigate through different windows, from one contact to another in a very seamless manner.

What do you dislike?

Emailing from Prezly is still pretty basic. I like to add pics in the body of my email, here I can't do it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just go for it!

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

All my PR contacts are in the same place, isolated from the Sales & Marketing CRM.

I have an overview of the previous and on-going conversation with my contacts. The tags and filtering options allow me to segment my mailings.

Being able to store all my pictures for journalists in Prezly, and being able to share them all at once just with a link, is a great feature.

What Press Release Distribution solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Connect - Engage - Measure"

What do you like best?

Reputation risk management is a Board's #1 challenge. There has never been a more important time to centralise all of your stakeholders in one place and to execute your stakeholder outreach in a consistent and coordinated way in country, while recording and analysing the historical track record of that relationship.

What do you dislike?

Manual upload of my contacts. I want real time updates from third party influencer providers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Building trust for proactive reputatoin risk management relies on coordinated, consistent and intelligent stakeholder engagement.

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

Prezly delivers our Board of Directors oversight. It allows us to consistently connect, engage and measure the performance and effectiveness of our stakeholder engagement programs. Crisis scenarios are pre-uploaded, relevant spokespeople delegated, and then practised across the global organisation. Improvements in advocacy are tracked proactively on a rolling basis. Reputation benchmarks are analysed consistently to enable us to identify and execute the key levers for trust.

"Improving media reach, step by step"

What do you like best?

The tool is easy to use, with good background and documentation files, plus easy share with colleagues in an international context.

People working in the business are at the start and growth of this platform, and you can feel it.

Instead of sending out releases it allows you to start real Media Relations, and imporive your contact management.

What do you dislike?

Not that much to dislike, however I would like to have some things added, like workflow of drafts of releases with colleagues, and some more ease of use of database possibilities.

But that's what you get when you are sitting at a table in a good restaurant: you want to taste some extra dishes and ask for the dessert card...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to finetune your database(s) with contacts before getting started with setting up your news room(s)

Clarify in your organisation who will do what and get colleagues involved in the process

Take extra time to update your 'About' boiler plate and corporate branding material

Prepare a database of quality photos of management and key people, logos and other visuals that will be handy when working on a regular basis sending out messages

Create also a list of internal contacts to share messages

Examine linking to the own website and make it into a part of your communication mix

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

Better visual and integrated press releases, with mail and online quality display, standardised across agencies in an international group

Better exchange and pickup of messages

"Clear, beautiful newsrooms help me connect with journalists"

What do you like best?

The most effective way to present lots of information and assets to time-starved journalists. They can quickly see everything at a glance, the design makes everything look beautiful and crystal clear and of course you have the data side – which is invaluable.

What do you dislike?

I’d like more newsrooms! At the moment I have to overwrite existing ones.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the best of its kind on the market.

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

For me, it adds value to my campaigns (see above) but it also helps me present a more professional service to my clients. Everything looks slick and polished. Much nicer than ugly word documents and cut and pasted emails. I like the fact you make changes to the newsroom, even after it has been sent out - in case of any woops! moments. Benefits wise, it has helped me secured lots of great coverage! All my clients have been delighted, as have I.

"Time saver, opportunity builder"

What do you like best?

Prezly is the best software/SAAS purchase I have made in two years. It solved many of my problems with direct mail, managed contacts, and building press releases and media alerts.

What do you dislike?

Managing contacts is a little cumbersome because of the in and out and back and forth but I think it is improving as the platform develops.

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

Direct email is now compliant because I have an opt-out. Faster posting releases with dynamic content. Mobil responsive pages...a million more things.

"Awesomeness in effectiveness and user friendliness "

What do you like best?

Prezly allows us to communicate in a transversal way on our corporate strategy and brand activities by melting content into stories. We are now able to measure effectiveness of our efforts and better integrate these learnings for future purposes. Moreover, Prezly allows us to better categorize our contacts and keeping our database up to date.

What do you dislike?

Working with Prezly asks for a different approach. You need to think as a redaction, that's how powerful the tool is. It means that, as an organization, you should not only foresee in a budget for the Prezly plan but also for the additional support functions; investments in better and adapted photo material, video creation, a follow-up guidance on social media etc. Of course, it all evolves from a successful result by using the tool... so you should not dislike it... rather embrace it to optimize your outreach efforts.

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

We are working web based, so we have now multi access to our PR platform. We are integrating Public Affairs, Digital Marketing, Internal Communication and Public Relations outreach efforts in 1 and the same tool. It allows us to reuse content towards several audiences. This leads to a more coherent way of communicating as a company or a brand. Also, from a personnel perspective, the legacy is always there... no loss of information of contacts when people change functions or leave the company.

"Love it from the start"

What do you like best?

Not only the press office looks nice, but also email campaign stats look nice!

What do you dislike?

Would be great to have possibility to create email campaign without having a story published. Can't wait to have it.

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

We are a global tech company, so our brands needed a nice, modern press office. The other thing was managing a huge contact list, as we cover with our press releases many different topics for various markets. It works, it's intuitive and effective.

"Contact Management for PR professionals"

What do you like best?

Prezly is software specifically made for PR professionals with amazing newsrooms, easy email features tools and simple contact management. We used this software to improve communucation between lawyers on cases where there was multiple lawyers working together as well as to improve communication from lawyer to staff and staff to client.

What do you dislike?

Prezly is not easy to use and required a bit of training to get all staff/users on board. It also is not built to accommodate lawyers and their support staff. but more so direct from producer to requester or client.

Recommendations to others considering the product

try it out! It was a great tool that allowed us to grow in the number of communications we had with client and keep better track of all communications to and from clients.

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

simple email features and tools and easy contact management. We also used it as a interim communication tool that allowed us to be professional and provide robust updates about cases.

What do you dislike?

It is expensive. Maybe it would be even better to have some more options to personalize your page.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I enjoy the fact that I can add all or most of our digital assets to the Story as I create it and that I can continually update it as our productions run.

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

"Sub par distribution platform "

What do you like best?

Implementation was quick and easy. It did not take long to set up an account and get running with Prezly. There were lots of options for distribution.

What do you dislike?

I felt Prezly was a bit pricey to distribute our press releases. I didn't find that the CRM to track influencers was that beneficial either for the kind of data we were looking for.

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

We wanted a more effective way of pushing out press releases to our intended audience. While Prezly did that, I wasn't super thrilled with the price for the results we saw.

"Content Distribution"

What do you like best?

I like that this platform incorporates press release distribution with CRM features. This lets us see who is reading and engaging with our content.

What do you dislike?

A bit pricey when you can track with some CRM systems already.

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

We wanted a press release distribution system. But since we already had HubSpot, then we didn't need the added CRM features, etc. So with the price it didn't make since to use it when we only really needed it for content distribution.
