IMS is a leader in developing unique marketing strategies and we’re pleased to partner with them as we ramp up our global advertising offerings.”

With this agreement, IMS continues to develop its robust product portfolio with operations throughout Latin America, Europe and Asia. In partnering with a content provider like WMG, IMS adds to its services the potential opportunity for advertisers to develop unique digital campaigns and brand integrations, on a global scale.
