What is PRgloo?

PRgloo is a cloud-based media relations platform which combines tools for managing contacts, press releases, distribution, responses, influencers, media monitoring, newsletters, coverage, reporting and analytics, and more in an intuitive mobile interface. The solution is designed for in-house media communication teams, internal communications, and stakeholders to manage all communication functions including enquiries, media newsrooms, press releases, coverage, and influencer engagement.

With PRgloo, users can centralize the management of all content, contacts, and responses. The response desk lets users track and manage all statements, enquiries and requests to their team, and share relationships and ideas. Media-rich content can be created and managed through the content hub, with users able to schedule publication and set up embargoes. Users can also control the distribution of content to tailored lists of contacts and stakeholders.

PRgloo’s PR planner lets users coordinate all of their communication activities, engagements, industry events, and press releases in a single calendar. All activities, including interviews, press releases, statements, conversations, and networking, can be linked to outcomes to track their effectiveness. PRgloo also provides users with a customized newsroom to engage with audiences and display content.

Making a big difference to our team

We were using spreadsheets to track enquiries and Word tables for lists of contacts - it wasn't the most efficient system!

From the demo stage right through procurement and training, to implementation, our experience with PRGloo has been superb. It allows our team to work better; whether it's tracking conversations with journalists, managing reactive issues, or managing our news hub.

Any queries we've had have been quickly resolved and everyone we've dealt with has been incredibly helpful and efficient.

A good platform!

Overall, PR Gloo is simple to use and beneficial to the team.
We are looking at how we can maximise full use of the platform.
The incompatibility of IT infrastructure with the platform for some tasks is an issue we are working on.

User friendly and great support team

The overall experience has been great. Working with the PRgloo team has been brilliant and they are always on hand to help, tutorials and give great advice.

If PRgloo isn't the answer, you're probably asking the wrong question!

The integration between our back office system and frontline newsroom has breathed new life into our PR function and, as 2020 progresses we will absolutely be looking to enhance this and exploit every bit of functionality.

Pros

It's simple yet powerful, easy to use and works really well for us. We're able to track our conversations with the media easily and see what colleagues are working on at a glance.

Cons

We've had a little confusion over topics, themes and tags within PRGloo, but that's more teething troubles on our part. Once we dig deeper into reporting and use it for longer, we're confident of ironing this out.

Response from PRgloo

Thanks so much for the glowing feedback. We're really pleased that you are enjoying using the platform and that you're happy with the support that we have provided in setting you up. Please let us know how you get on with topics, tags and themes, and we'll happily provide any additional support to help you iron out any problems.

Pros

The software is accessible and easy to use, ensuring you can easily view and log calls. The option to collectively group statements under a heading is also very useful, helping you easily see how a subject has evolved every time you have taken a call.

Cons

The database of journalists can be lacking in individual details for journalists when compared to rivals, it is however useful that you can update it yourself once you have those details.

Response from PRgloo

Thanks for taking the time to review PRgloo. We're glad you and your team are enjoying using the platform. Our database has over 70,000 entries of journalists and news organisations. On a daily basis the team look at distribution issues, social media changes, social media errors and customer requests. Our highest priority is ensuing the platform is GDPR compliant. In some cases, journalists have requested they not be including in database lists and therefore we are unable to include those contacts. However, we are aware that many of our customers have great relationships with journalists so we do make it very easy for you to store this information on any record we hold. We'd be happy to show you how to do this and also how to make the best use of our research team who are there to support you in locating the best contacts for your campaigns.

The integration between our back office system and frontline newsroom has breathed new life into our PR function and, as 2020 progresses we will absolutely be looking to enhance this and exploit every bit of functionality.

Pros

The software is intuitive, well presented and, best of all, just works. It's not got bells and whistles for the sake of it - there are other providers who technically offer more (beware, showy doesn't necessarily mean better) - PRgloo is clean and lean and the delivery is faultless. Plus, and here's the rub, the aftercare is second to none. Nothing is too big, or too small, for the team to deal with and the personal service and lightning quick response times are simply outstanding.

Cons

Honestly, this is a struggle. There's nothing not to like, but there are some tweaks that could deliver a few enhancements such as task allocation to team members and direct publication to social media from press releases/statements. Having said that, knowing the guys at PRgloo, they're probably working on this - or it already exists and I've not noticed it!

Response from PRgloo

Thanks for the feedback! We're glad you are enjoying using our easy to use platform. The newsroom functionality has been a hit with many of our clients and we can't wait to see how you use it in the future. We will be in touch to discuss direct publication options and task allocation! As you know we like to provide solutions wherever possible!
