The acquisition of PushPull  is the result of a solid partnership that has been ongoing since 2007, and is part of M-Cube’s vertical growth strategy in order to strengthen its in-store audio and video services, one of the company’s key business areas. Communication inside points of sale or branches is becoming more and more relevant. It is one of the most important trade-marketing tools, not only because it guarantees a unique and motivating  shopping experience for the customers, but it is also an invaluable tool to inform and train personnel. This is an often overlooked aspect but its potential is gaining recognition. PushPull will contribute to the development of this aspect, also thanks to  the experience gained with the conception of a series of daily programmes for Radio Intesa Sanpaolo, a station  dedicated to the bank’s customers but also to the staff, with  specific programmes hosted by well known Italian radio networks personalities.
The acquisition of PushPull by M-Cube will strengthen and increase the range of  services offered, with greater focus on contents and creativity.  It has also expanded the company’s structure, with fifty people now employed in the Italian branches in Trieste and Milan, plus 5 audio production studios and 3 video post production ones.
“This acquisition is very important strategically since it allows us to integrate M-Cube’s consultancy and technological know-how with PushPull’s exceptional creativity” affirms Manlio Romanelli, M-Cube’s CEO.
 “ The in-store radio market is definitely reaching its peak, especially with regard to communicating with  customers. PushPull’s experience allows us to develop highly competitive solutions in answer to the market’s demand, always looking for more effective tools to address the consumer. As for the growing potential of internal  communication we have no doubt  that the know-how of PushPull will help us to expand and consolidate this market too” says Romanelli.
“Together M-Cube and PushPull represent a unique organization in Italy.
