APIs & Data

At Meltwater, we believe that data shouldn’t exist in a vacuum. When you blend data from your own applications or third-party BI systems with media data, you can uncover insights that benefit all sides of your organisation. With a Meltwater API, users can extract, contextualise, organise and integrate information from across the web and gain a 360 overview of your business and its eco-system. Let our team of API experts show you how.

Measuring What Matters

Executives use Meltwater API to:

  • Identify aggregate trends in real-time
  • Understand brand performance
  • Analyse key movements and influencers in the market
  • Generate a greater analytical understanding of their customers 

"First, it gives us the reach, engagement and sentiment data that we're looking for, above and beyond our own channels. We're not just interested in understanding how our own posts perform, we want to know what the larger conversation looks like. Second, with the automation, we are able to automatically pull data into our own internal dashboards, which is incredibly valuable from a time perspective."

"One of the biggest challenges we had was putting that all together into a comprehensive, insightful presentation that would allow us to really have a clear picture of where we are across the board, also a deeper dive into the insights from there. Previously we had numbers, but we didn't know what was behind the numbers."
