Monitoring, Measuring and Reporting

In order to conduct a meaningful and productive dialogue with key markets, communities and customers, it is essential to have insight in what is being said about your company – and who is saying what.

To provide clients with a comprehensive overview of press coverage, EMG has developed a real-time media monitoring, press clippings database, reporting, analysis, and news alert service.

EMG clients make use of these services where they need to capture both print and online media coverage. EMG’s added value compared to conventional press clipping services is that we focus on the trade media, covering a wide range of industrial markets across Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Regular reporting ensures that internal audiences are updated regularly about the company’s external communications activities. EMG clients are offered a range of tools that are brought together in one system, thereby delivering an overview and analysis of relevant on-line, printed and social media coverage and activities.

EMG manages the complete trade media monitoring and clipping process in-house to ensure optimal quality. We report media coverage tailored to the needs of our clients’ media relation programmes and our system also offers electronic newsletter and alert functionality to inform communications managers and the wider organisation about company as well as industry news as required.
