Top qualities you should be looking for in a media intelligence dashboard

The main objective of every company is to make / build great products. But defining “great” can be a highly subjective exercise. At DataScouting we believe that if we want to be successful as a team, it is important to ensure that we all share the same definition of greatness, and we all work from the same playbook.

With that in mind, we took a look at the dimensions that are considered to make a media intelligence dashboard a great product for media monitoring companies, media and PR agencies, advertisements companies, government bodies, and comms departments, and we measured them against the qualities of our MediaScouting Core.
