“CARMA sets the gold standard in media intelligence, media monitoring, and analysis. So, this global, exclusive, long-term partnership makes perfect sense for ICCO and the PRCA.
“The kind of insight that CARMA provides is more critical than ever for the PR, marketing, and communications industry. Their analysis will help PR practitioners around the world take full advantage of the economic recovery as it unfolds.”
Richard Bagnall, Co-Managing Partner at CARMA added:
“Increasing numbers of PR and communications professionals come to CARMA wanting to achieve better, more accurate reporting about the value of PR. The desire to understand and demonstrate PR impact is a direct consequence of the world we now find ourselves in.
