CUA’s Corporate Affairs and Community team went out to market in 2017 for enhanced media monitoring services to ensure we’re capturing conversations and coverage across all media channels, not simply the traditional media we’ve kept an eye on in the past.

Mutual Marketplace guided us through the process at every stage from setting up our bid brief and reviewing the applicants to shortlisting and negotiating and finalising a contract.

Mutual Marketplace kept us updated at every step along the way and negotiated a competitive two-year deal for us with a new provider. We are considering reviewing further suppliers in 2018 and will definitely use Mutual Marketplace again because the process worked so well for us.
