18 July 2014, London, UK. Business communication specialist Banner Managed Communication (BMC) has announced a new strategic partnership with OpenEye, the global digital media consultancy. OpenEye specialises in the design and creation of digital in-store experiences that enable retailers to engage more effectively with customers.

BMC and OpenEye will collaborate in delivering advanced visual technologies to consumer brands both in the UK and mainland Europe. The partnership will combine the strengths of two companies that fully understand the need for cohesive multichannel marketing strategies.

Catherine Burke, Managing Director of Banner Managed Communication, commented: "We’re always on the lookout for ways of enhancing our multichannel proposition and we’re very open to bringing in best-of-breed outside expertise where there’s a compelling case to do so. We identified OpenEye as a world leader in digital signage and other in-store technologies and this new partnership will open up a wealth of possibilities and new ideas for our clients, with very direct commercial applications. This is yet another way in which BMC is supporting clients in the ongoing evolution of their multichannel strategies.”

Bryan Meszaros, Managing Partner of OpenEye said: "We welcome the opportunity to work with a marketing communications company that has a heritage rooted in creating effective multichannel campaigns. By leveraging our experience and expertise in digital merchandising we feel this will create an unique opportunity for us to collaborate on exciting initiatives.”
