"CisionPoint provides indispensable and comprehensive digital content that empowers PR and communications professionals to plan campaigns – and do their jobs smarter, better and faster," said Joe Bernardo, Chief Executive Officer of Cision North America.

"The CisionPoint database contains almost one million media and influencer contacts, outlets and editorial opportunities, updated almost 20,000 times every day. And that database is fully integrated with constantly enhanced workflow, monitoring and analysis capabilities. We're excited that the CODiE Award judges have determined that CisionPoint is one of the best business information resources in the world," he added.

"This is the twenty-sixth year we have recognized excellence through the CODiE Awards program, and the tenth year we have offered awards in the content categories," noted Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. "The competition is tough, as nominating companies are looking to make their products stand out from the competition. The innovations in the content industry shine through in the products selected as finalists, and we are very excited to see how the voting goes this year."

Winner of a CODiE Award for Best Online News Service, CisionPoint has been a finalist in digital content and software categories every year since becoming eligible for the competition two years ago.
