May 24, 2021 (3 min read)

It’s been 35 years since the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) first began awarding the peer recognized SIIA CODiE Awards to “the most exciting and transformative products” in business and education technologies. In announcing the results, SIIA President Jeff Joseph said, “The 2021 CODiE Award finalists continued to innovate, pivot and grow to develop truly remarkable products throughout an historically challenging year. These finalists maintain the vital legacy of the CODIEs in spotlighting the best and most impactful apps, services and products serving the business tech market.” And Nexis Solutions is proud to have three of our solutions in the running for awards again.

Nexis® named 2021 SIIA CODiE finalist for Best Business Information or Data Delivery Solution 

When it comes to conducting business research on competitors, trends and more, Nexis® connects users to a world-leading data universe that spans news, company, and executive information, legal and regulatory data­—all in one place. Then our underlying intelligent technologies, like LexisNexis® SmartIndexing Technology™, support precision searches and post-search filtering that improves results relevance. As one CODiE judge noted about Nexis performance: “I think it’s a great example of how much value you can create when you move past simple data aggregation into data analysis and useful information. I feel this Nexis is definitely one to watch as it breaks new ground.”

Other strengths that earned the judges’ mentions include:

  • A clean and intuitive interface
  • Easy navigation to news results

Nexis Newsdesk™ earns a 2021 SIIA CODiE finalist nod, for the 6th year in a row

This isn’t the first nomination—or CODiE Award—for our media monitoring and analytics solution, Nexis Newsdesk™. In 2020, Nexis Newsdesk was honored as Best Content Search & Discovery Solution—and we’re in the running again this year.

This all-in-one solution makes it easy to search, monitor and analyze news and social media coverage to gain insights for brand messaging, reputation management, strategic positioning and more. Users can quickly analyze search results using built in options:

  • Select predefined analysis templates for comprehensive Brand Health, Competitive, Industry, Market or Social Media analysis.
  • Choose from a wide variety of charts to analyze coverage over time, share of voice and more
  • Generate word clouds featuring Subjects or Companies Mentioned.
  • Understand Sentiment—positive, neutral, or negative—relative to the search parameters set including a Summary view.

And that’s just a hint of what’s possible. The ability to analyze thousands of articles in just a few clicks empowers PR and communication professionals to quickly filter out the noise and make data-driven decisions that drive business value.

Highlighting strengths like advanced search functionality, one judge remarked, “The dashboard views, filters and alert functionality make this tool easy to use and provide a very efficient and effective way to report up on PR performance and opportunities.” Another judge simply commented, “I would rate it 9.25/10.” Check out sample interactive charts to see how this powerful tool enables insight.
