PR SaaS company Mynewsdesk and Ragan Communications partner to make digital PR and communications easy for brand communicators across the U.S. The partnership is announced by Mark Ragan, Ragan Communications CEO, at the Social Media Conference in Orlando later today.

The Mynewsdesk platform allows communicators to take control of their digital PR efforts. From publishing brand stories to connecting with journalists and analyzing their results, it’s an all-in-one digital platform that improves efficiency.

Like many PR technology leaders, Mynewsdesk has its roots in the Nordics and was founded in Sweden 2003. The company has dominated the Nordic PR market for the last decade. In recent years, it has successfully expanded to Germany and the U.K., making digital PR and communications easy for more than 5,000 brands and 88,000 users.

Mynewsdesk now brings the innovative technology, used by many of Europe's leading companies, to the U.S. together with Ragan Communications.

“Helping our customers be effective with digital PR has always been our focus at Mynewsdesk. Telling your brand story has never been more important than it is today, and at the same time, it has never been more challenging trying to cut through the clutter,” said Mynewsdesk CEO Mattias Malmström. “We look forward to helping U.S. communicators be more effective through our partnership with Ragan.”

The Mynewsdesk and Ragan partnership will be announced during Ragan’s Social Media Conference in Florida today, where speakers from brands including Vox, Amazon, IBM Corporate Communications and Salesforce are in attendance.

“Having a digital platform that delivers the type of information journalists are looking for — in the way they want it — is critical,” said Ragan Communications CEO Mark Ragan. “Without it, reporters will click off your site and miss all the great stories you have to tell. We are thrilled to bring Mynewsdesk to North America.”
