Sanctuary Records Group Go Live With MPP Global’s iShop
Sanctuary Records Group, one of the U.K.’s leading Independent Labels, has selected MPP Global to power its online merchandising services. Starting with Trojan, the label’s reggae portal, Sanctuary will use MPP Global’s iShop to sell a combination of physical and digital music download products.
Giles Green, Sanctuary’s executive vice president of marketing, sales & digital, said: “MPP Global demonstrated to us the power of its iShop product and providing consumers with the ability to purchase either digital or physical products from one environment was something we have been longing to achieve for some time. Trojan was a natural first site for iShop, which we plan to roll out across other Sanctuary brands in due course.”
Paul Johnson, MD at MPP Global comments: “It is fantastic to add Sanctuary to our growing list of music clients and I am sure they have made the right decision in partnering with MPP Global for all their eCommerce needs.”
