"Flexible solution, incredible team"

What do you like best?

We came across PressPage by accident, and implementing it for our press releases was one of the best projects we did in this are to date. Working with the PressPage team is straightforward, they are extremely customer-focused, their support is the fastest I have ever experienced in any IT-based service, and the solution is continuously developed further.

What do you dislike?

Nothing yet, after about a year working with PressPage.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Have a look and think about all the kinds of "news" you may want to publish online. The RSS feed feature of any news category is very powerful and allows you to use PressPage as a single database for all your news, of which you may only show some on certain parts of your website, utilising RSS-feed-based elements.

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

First we only wanted to bring our corporate press releases into the 21st century. We did this and more: Our press releases got much more reach than ever, and we expand on what we use PressPage for. We have already implemented a blog and will use it for any kind of news from our business areas. And all of this at running costs lower than our previous press release circulation solution.

"Community "

What do you like best?

PressPage makes it easy to distribute news releases to all of our interested parties from the local media to our staff. Because it isn't hosted on our websites CMS it's easily customizable during a crisis or for the day to day releases.

PressPage makes it easy to integrate photos, videos and social media into the release so that releases are more than just text.

What do you dislike?

PressPage is a great product but more integrations with social media platforms and more robust crisis communication tools. Alongside that I'd like to add that they're working on these things so I expect they will improve over the next year.

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

PressPage scales with the traffic so in a crisis PressPage can handle whatever we throw at it. Moreover because it doesn't involve the websites CMS I don't need IT approval for content to post.

"Seamless System for Managing Press and Distributing Press Releases"

What do you like best?

What we like the best is how PressPage seamlessly fits over our already established website. There is fully consistency from a branding standpoint and users cannot see that they are switching from our platform into the PressPage system.

What do you dislike?

We have to change our template (header and footer) frequently due to sponsor changes. While PressPage is extremely responsive in making any updates to our template, it sometimes would be easier if we could change the logos ourselves.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

From a user's standpoint, PressPage seamlessly overlays our established website and from the backend, integration and learning the system was very straightforward. Additionally, the PressPage help team is remarkably responsive and always extremely friendly and easy to work with.

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

Being able to integrate our press page to highlight external stories while also including our own internal press releases has been amazing. Additionally by being able to distribute our press releases from within the PressPage system to journalists means we were able to eliminate going to an external site.

"Superb Online Newsroom"

What do you like best?

PressPage is a robust and powerful online news platform that is very easy to use. The ability to customize modules means you can set up your newsroom to fit your needs. Not only do you have the ability to quickly share via social channels but you also have the ability to highlight portions of a story and use that as the body of your social posts. You don't need to have a technical background to use which means you can focus more on producing the best written piece possible and not about laying it out for the web.

What do you dislike?

I'm very much into data and analytics. PressPage has a quality reporting module but it highlights only the basic metrics such as visits, new vs returning, and referring websites. I'd like to see a deeper dive into the impact of pieces, such as social shares and other measures of engagement.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The PressPage team is very accommodating when considering the product. They are available to answer your questions and set up a trial. They work to understand what you're trying to accomplish and show you how PressPage can help.

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

PressPage has allowed us to become our own online newsroom. We use it to share the pieces that we feel are most impactful to our goals and objectives. We also encourage media to use it to better understand what's going on at our college. We provide a media center with information for media outlets to leverage in their reporting efforts. As traditional papers dwindle it is important for us to still have an outlet to share our news. PressPage allows us to do this.

"Outstanding Tech Support"

What do you like best?

The PressPage tech support team is a force. They are quick to acknowledge support requests and very open to exploring options for solving any needs I have as a client--even if it means creating workaround solutions. I cannot speak highly enough about their support access, conscientiousness, professionalism, and "let's see if we can do it" attitude.

What do you dislike?

The only area for improvement I'd make is that I think the reporting feature could be more robust--but the support team can resolve much of this need with a custom Google analytics dashboard. And there are features here and there we'd like to see, but we understand our needs don't necessarily map to the funnel or priorities of PressPage's larger customer base and current development map. They do seem to take note of our needs. If they can address them, they do so very quickly. If not, they are forthright.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look at all they have to offer beyond a newsroom service. Might be beneficial to use them for more than a newsroom platform (e.g., blog, web campaign pages).

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

PressPage solves our need for a third party host and provider for our company's newsroom. I have been impressed how they have helped us use our newsroom platform in circumstances when our blog platform couldn't.

"Very easy program to use, has greatly improved our airport online newsroom look and process "

What do you like best?

From start to finish -- including customer service, training and implementation -- PressPage has been wonderful to work with and we're thrilled with the final product, which is a beautiful and clean-looking online newsroom for our company website and an easier way to distribute communications.

What do you dislike?

While most of the program is very intuitive, there are some quirks or features (such as adding captions to photos), that were hard to figure out and still seem a little clunky. But the basics, such as posting a story or moving sections around, are incredibly easy.

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

We have not only made it much easier for our entire Communications team to post stories to our online newsroom, but our distribution of press releases is now much more efficient and easy to track than our previous method of traditional email distribution.

"Del Mar College Review"

What do you like best?

The platform is very user-friendly; and no matter the size of your operation, your online newsroom looks as though you have multiple staff contributing various content based on how you design that resource for varied end-users.

What do you dislike?

We would like to have the option to add a photo with a social media post generated when using that function of the platform. A large percentage of our target audience is made up of younger individuals who are very graphiccs driven.

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

The online newsroom is more robust than anything we've ever had before and appears to attract more traffic to news stories, events listings, etc. We're also investigating how we can use this resource during crisis communication efforts, another benefit over the past IT-controlled web systems.

"Easy to Use, Feature Packed"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to include photographs, videos and attachments that will help media professionals and stakeholders. Really makes our media releases more compelling and likely to garner coverage. Additionally, with the RSS feed, we are able to sync the feed to an email list to send out custom newsletters to regents, faculty and staff with the latest news.

What do you dislike?

Featuring a particular story on our main feed is not as intuitive as it could be, but very simple once you learn the process.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a lot of video and photography assets to accompany your press releases, you will really love Press Page. Additionally, if you can also highlight the events/news within your website's content management system, you'll find that it can help streamline processes.

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

We have a spot to archive press releases, and we also integrate Press Page with our website CMS to populate a news and events section.

"An innovative way of looking at the press "

What do you like best?

It is an advanced tool that has the resources to elevate to another level your journalistic work, not only has resources that will transform your news but also you can make use of multimedia resources and infographics that you can use in communication campaigns to diversify your work. On the other hand contains analysis tools that will help you improve your content and find out if you're cpatando the desired audience

What do you dislike?

It is a productive software of high cost, it is necessary to have clear towards where the communicational strategy is directed initially not to waste its functionality. I would love to have a version for mobile devices, to monitor the course of content analysis.

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

Always looking for innovative options to improve our communication strategy and add more followers to our audience, we use this platform to identify the outcome of our campaign on the audience, it is important to verify the trend, detect errors in content, and maintain and increase followers. I like it because it is a sophisticated interface that seeks to provide different alternatives and channels to improve collaboration and communication between the company and the public.

"When it comes to newsrooms, PressPage is way ahead of the game."

What do you like best?

A newsroom has finally been built and designed to be another member of the Marketing and PR team. User-friendly, efficient and no need for IT to be involved.

2018 saw PR, Marketing, Advertising roll into one. Social Media has become mainstream and CCO's are taking on a major role in companies. Reaching out and attracting the traditional media, TV, influencers, bloggers, employees, clients, stakeholders is a priority. In 2019, interesting content and intuitive technology will be a main concern.

Where does PressPage come into to the equation? PressPage has all you need to become a publisher.

The user- friendly platform makes your workflow easy to upload and share video, audio, press notes, pictures, infographics, Slideshare, pdf documents... All in one place, drag and drop, from any device, 24/24. The download for the user is very simple too.

PressPage comes with lots of different modules for social sharing, RSS, buttons for sign up and polls and email. PressPage has recently added a media database with over 80,000 worldwide contacts.

SEO and Analytic friendly, PressPage comes with metrics to measure and track results. PressPage fits seamlessly into your web, with your look and feel. The technical team is quick to react and offer personalized attention. Updates are automatic and new features are constantly being added.

What do you dislike?

Maybe, it would be nice to have more than 1GB for video. This would useful for VNR distribution. A little more alphabetical order on the email lists and media manager...

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

User-friendly... No need for any IT knowledge. Great for keeping all our content in one place. Easy distribution for VNR content to television and online media. Being able to easily upload video, audio and photographs to share from the media library without the help of an editor or IT make PressPage unique.

"Super-simple Newsroom system"

What do you like best?

When it Comes to News, time is critical. A Newsroom System has to be easy to work with, if you want to add News within minutes.

What do you dislike?

Any System that is easy is - to some extend - also unflexible. So if yu want to add a lot of Pictures or different text formating to your News, the System might be limited. But for us, isimplicity was more importnat than extrem flexibility.

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

Our corporate Website does not offer the posiibility to add News in a nice and fast page. Presspage as a microsite alows us to do this.

"Additional trial software for press page"

What do you like best?

It does Download quickly. So most of my friends like it. They say it was really easy and reliable on business task and support.

What do you dislike?

I was just not my cup of tea.. for the line of work I do reason why its because as an Avon representative I have to review all kinds software to be able to properly promote my estore page and inventory.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As for me I probably needed it more assistance from press page. Every experience is different my friends from Avon love it. So I probably I have to try it again

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

My inventory list ...to have a diagram of it like example listing of what Avon products I have available

"A great way to publish content "

What do you like best?

I like the comprehensive capabilities of PressPage. From custom built templates to the ability to schedule and automate publishing, the platform gives the ability for our company to independently manage content

What do you dislike?

Some items are a little difficult to understand at first (like many platforms). It takes awhile to understand what's available and how to use it (newsroom vs. creating content, they look the same).

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

We needed a way to publish content easily (and in a user-friendly way) outside of our drupal website. Many of our colleagues don't have the knowledge to do this - PressPage solved this by being a user-friendly platform for our department to publish press releases and blogs quickly.

"Easy Peasy"

What do you like best?

I've been working with the PressPage platform for the last six-plus months and have thoroughly enjoyed its ease of use.

What do you dislike?

I like everything and enjoy that they continue to evolve.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is an easy to use platform that makes getting stories to the web quick.

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

It's a great way to share news with our members and the general public. I'm also interested in learning more about the new functionality options to share to social media directly from PressPage.

"Potent Product"

What do you like best?

Overall, the simplicity and user-friendliness. Satisfies our needs completely on getting the word out.

What do you dislike?

The access to images in Media Manager. You have to scroll to locate images if the word search suffice. WordPress' image access is great example of a preferred way of previously used locating images.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it! You will like it!

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

Strong platform to get the job done from PR Analytics to e-newsletter distribution to press releases...one-stop shop!

"Improved our Newsroom more than 1,000 percent (literally)! "

What do you like best?

It's so easy, yet so complex. The Press Page platform is so intuitive that it is simple to learn the basics. Within 20 minutes, I was posting our stories without any help or doubt. What I mean by complex is that I am still learning new tricks, seven months after our launch.

What do you dislike?

Now I am learning the distribution end of the platform and it's intuitive as well. No complaints. Wouldn't count this as a dislike, but it would be nice to have a more robust template for press release distribution.

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

Our unique visits went from 900 a month to 13,000 a month in these seven months since we launched.

"Over het algemeen tevreden"

What do you like best?

De gebruiksvriendelijkheid van het systeem

What do you dislike?

De mogelijkheden om statistieken in Presspage te bekijken vind ik te beperkt. Met name de details. De mogelijkheden om door te plaatsen op social zijn beperkt in die zin dat je bv. op Twitter veel meer tekens kunt gebruiken en op LinkedIn ook tags en foto's etc. kunt toevoegen. In de praktijk plaatsen we dus niet altijd direct door op social media.

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

De voordelen zitten hem vooral in het samenwerken in één systeem. De gebruikersvriendelijkheid.
