Internally the Promo Only MPE System allows us to get music to our locations throughout the US and globally in a timely manner. It is a real advantage to be able to service our sales teams while they are on the road.”
“We are delighted to be working with Integrity Label Group,” said Dean Ernst, director of Promo Only MPE. “It is exciting to see the new ways in which the Promo Only MPE System is being used. To have signed another major Christian label so quickly is testament to the work we are doing and the product we offer.”
