“Having amalgamated our specialist agencies under one roof, we were looking for a single platform solution that would allow us to unite and integrate our people and projects within our new “hyper-bundled” way of working. A big challenge that thankfully Screendragon have helped us to solve.
We now have a platform that enables us to operate as one united agency, and a trusted partner to help us continually evolve a better way of working.” Ian Douglas . COO . Mullen Lowe London
