CHICAGO, Oct. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Cision (NYSE: CISN) today announced that Falcon.io, its social media management division, has acquired Unmetric, a leader in delivering insights from social benchmarking, audience engagement, and content performance.
Unmetric delivers public data from leading global brands across social media channels, enabling companies to enhance their content strategy, better engage with their customers, and spend time where it matters, delivering on business objectives and ROI.
Falcon.io will integrate Unmetric into their Social Media Marketing platform, enabling customers to drive consistent brand experiences across social content, engagement and insights.
“Our mission is to deliver a powerful social software suite that enables the brands we serve to win in their markets. Today the Unmetric acquisition gets us closer to this vision,” said Ulrik Bo Larsen, Founder of Falcon.io and President, Cision Social. “Giving brands the ability to benchmark, monitor, measure, better engage with their customers and audiences, and create and publish powerful content all in one unified platform across multiple channels will help them win.”
“Marketers are often data rich and insight poor. This is especially true in the content ecosystem where brands are communicating at the speed of culture. Brands, therefore, need to continually benchmark their social campaigns, content and channels, and use insights from the past to fuel campaigns for the future,” said Lux Narayan, CEO of Unmetric. “Unmetric brings this historical perspective to the Falcon.io platform to help brands and agencies create more compelling content.”
Falcon.io extends a warm welcome to the brands that Unmetric has been serving for years, such as Unilever, Pepsi, General Motors, Amgen, Bombardier, Edelman, TBWA, Homeaway, Away, GroupM and many more.
Unmetric’s social media marketing capabilities will be incorporated into the Falcon.io customer offering, and Unmetric’s team will be integrated into the Falcon organization and continue to build and expand on the use cases they have successfully taken to market.
