The two companies collaborate to manage the Superflash Radio broadcasting online and in-store, and M-Cube also manages the development and implementation of the digital signage network.

Digital Signage
All Superflash branches have been fitted with a video wall in the central area where events and conferences take place, and a monitor placed in the front window. The latter’s provide passers-by with information on the branch opening and closing times, upcoming events and general sales information.
M-Cube is providing a “turnkey” service with a fortnightly content update.

In-Store Radio
The branches also benefit of the M-Cube in-store radio service, broadcasting the existing Superflash Radio program available online.
PushPull has been managing the online Superflash Radio for sometime and has also created the music competition named Musicflash. The competition promotes the music of talented young people. The songs are played on Superflash Radio and the public vote online for their favourite artist. The winner is invited to perform live in one of the Superflash branches.

M-Cube has also developed a system to guarantee the multimedia integration between the in-store radio and the video wall. So that the volume of the music of the in-store radio player is turned down when the video wall broadcast goes live.

The digital signage and in-store radio, have met Superflash objectives of creating an engaging communication with its audience. It skillfully integrates the on and offline communications, providing an informative service which supports the bank activities to make banking attractive to the young generation.
