Challenge

PR Deliverables That Need To Be Met  

In order for Peermont to establish if their PR efforts were successful, they needed to work with a team that shared insights and reports - all of which, from a PR point of view, also needed to be accurately tracked and measured. 

Besides from reporting ROI, staying ahead of their competitors also proved to be challenging. Peermont had limited access to resources and felt that times were changing too quickly for them to keep up. They needed a media analytics company that could help them stay ahead of the curve. 

"What you put out from a PR point of view needs to be tracked and measured. Before Meltwater, we were using a competitor but found that is was time to move into a more digital operating company. Now, with Meltwater, we are able to get accurate publicity reports, gain valuable trends and competitor insights, and easily access customised PR reports as and when needed."
