With our two divisions - Mudra Videotech and Tantr - there is a great opportunity for branded content and integrating it with media in order to create a powerful media product."

OMS recently secured the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Enterprises (ADAE) media AOR. "The task ahead for OMS is to be, the single point for the entire communication spectrum including OOH, interactive, activation? along with a team that measures ROI for the ADAE group," he added.
