NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Talkwalker, a leading social data intelligence company, has been selected as the top social media monitoring tool on the market for performance, data volume, reporting and alerting, according to the Goldbach Interactive Social Media Monitoring Toolreport 2015.
Published by Swiss digital agency Goldbach, the report analyzed 170 social media monitoring tools from around the world and Talkwalker was selected as one of ten global leaders in the industry for the third year in a row. Talkwalker was one of only two tools to be chosen as a market leader in two categories – performance and data volume and reporting and alerting
The report especially praised Talkwalker's strength in areas critical to effective social media monitoring, such as the ability to handle big data volumes, performance speed and the wide range of reporting functions.
"On the whole spectrum of media types, Talkwalker had the best source cover," the report explained. "The quality of the results obtained is consistently good and the speed stable even with large amounts of data."
From an initial pool of 170 tools, Goldbach created a shortlist of 30 top performers and then rigorously tested each tool based on filtering possibilities, source coverage, export functions and tool performance. 10 tools were then chosen as the elite social media monitoring tools worldwide and judged based on eight categories ranging from reporting and source coverage to performance and usability.
"The Goldbach report shows that Talkwalker is becoming the market leader in the social media monitoring space," says Talkwalker CEO Robert Glaesener. "As our clients will testify, the power, usability and flexibility of the Talkwalker platform is second to none and we will be introducing more exciting new features in the near future to keep the momentum going."
Talkwalker's selection comes after a year of strong growth in Europe and the US that has seen the company sign global deals with some of the largest brands and agencies in the world.
