LexisNexis Analytics was introduced in 2010 to South Africa, providing web, social media, broadcast and press monitoring and analysis for market and competitive intelligence, risk and reputation management.

LexisNexis Analytics gives them the confidence of not missing any media trend without being overwhelmed by noise and irrelevant information. Items that can be tracked include the mentions of specific organisations, competitors or industry issues faced by organisations.

Internationally, organisations in the Banking, Government, Manufacturing, Telecommunication and Sports sectors have been using the LexisNexis Analytics media monitoring and analysis."
