FAQ: Is BUTTER a media monitoring platform?

No. Media monitoring platforms provide alerts on the latest print, TV, and radio news, as well as press releases and social media updates. Meanwhile BUTTER alerts focus on emerging research, patents, trademarks, and SEC filings. Though both BUTTER and media monitoring platforms keep their users informed of the latest developments within an industry by tracking relevant information as it emerges, BUTTER provides more than just monitoring: it uses sophisticated artificial intelligence that writes original articles and newsletters. So the content available on our site is our own content, not just content from other sources.
