Cision, the leading provider of PR software, services and tools for the marketing and public relations industry, today announced that Mile High United Way of Denver, Colorado, has chosen the award-winning Cision marketing and public relations software platform as its campaign management solution.
Mile High United Way serves Denver and four other counties in its metropolitan area. Founded in 1887 as the first “United Way” organization, it works with over 50,000 individual and 800 business donors, more than 100 non-profit partners and state and local government agencies to unite people, ideas and resources that advance the common good and drive positive change.
Mile High United Way selected Cision because it has changed the way it communicates with media, influencers, donors and its stakeholder communities.
“We’ve turned the corner in how we tell our story: we’ve moved from a traditional, one-way model to a much more interactive environment. Now we communicate using SEO [search-engine optimized] press releases, social media communications, and an entire social media team that monitors online conversations and engages with our communities,” said Robert Thompson, Director of Media Relations.
“But to do that, we needed a tool that only Cision can provide: one that monitors both social and traditional media, and helps us spot trends, connect with influencers and audiences, communicate our story, keep us on the same page, and clearly show the ROI from our activities. Cision wraps all those activities up with a nice little bow: the Cision Media Database; social media, online media and print media monitoring; SEO and web distribution; and basic analytics,” he said.
“Mile High United Way is communicating with media, digital influencers and constituents in new and exciting ways. Cision gives the Mile High team the software, information and tools that lets them do that with maximum efficiency,” said Peter Granat, President and Chief Operating Officer of Cision North America.
