Truescope – Taking Luck Out of Media Monitoring and Insights in 2024

By Todd Murphy, President Truescope

The start of a new year always reminds me to consider the trusted vendors that help me serve our great media monitoring and PR insights clients. With public relations and corporate communications, this has historically been a season of reflection as well. 2024 is no different, except it is the year after we've experience amazing growth with the industries’ newest technology and platform in North America, Truescope

Each year, communication professionals consider who’s providing their media intelligence and insights, and a consistent theme emerges: the imperative to maximize efficiency and effectiveness in news monitoringand public relations analysis

With over 30 years of experience in leading our media monitoring services and analysis innovations, as well as presiding over all our global trade associations, I've concluded that for most clients, the options used in 2023 still have not met the expectations of professional communicators.

The contemporary PR professional faces a complex role. It encompasses not only adeptly navigating and engaging within a diverse media environment but also rigorously tracking and assessing the impact of communications efforts in ways that align with stakeholder expectations. This challenge is intensified by the increasingly segmented nature of the media landscape. In this context, Truescope emerges as a pivotal ally, providing robust support in this dynamic sector, especially in the fields of news monitoring and public relations analysis.

In 2023, Truescope unveiled a series of enhancements and innovations, crafted to bolster PR teams as they transition into 2024. These developments are noteworthy, though not exhaustive.
