Game-changing social risk defense. For years the best brands assumed it was either impossible - or too expensive - to monitor and catch every single comment on every social channel. Those days are over. Crisp combines powerful technology with human analysis to sweep every channel 24/7, delivering global brand coverage so absolute it comes with a 15-minute notification guarantee. Crisp already discretely protects the reputations of many of the world’s most well-known and revered brands, from luxury marques and entertainment channels to pharmaceutical and FMCG brands.

Crisp delivers best-in-class social risk defense for:

  • Top-tier consumer brands that would rather walk the plank than become the next public social media disaster story
  • Pharma, airline and financial service companies and brands that need monitoring services that are meticulous and fast enough to meet strict regulatory standards

Polpeo simulates how quickly a crisis spreads on social media, and the resulting impact on a company’s reputation.

Its proprietary software simulates a crisis breaking on social media and spreading over social networks, blogs, microblogs, forums and online news channels. At the same time, a team of experienced social media and community managers mimic how the public would respond to the crisis on those channels. The crisis scenario and content is created by specialist content team, and is based around a realistic issue that could face your brand.

It is the closest thing possible to managing a real crisis that’s breaking on social media, but all done in a private, safe environment, so you can make mistakes, learn and practice without the eyes of the world watching. Most companies will have a crisis plan in place. Polpeo lets you rehearse how you would implement that plan on social media in order to reduce the risk of lasting damage to your brand. It means you can prepare for the reality of dealing with the public on social media, and practice how you will protect your brand’s reputation when a crisis hits.
