We are happy to announce an integration with the United Media Agency, otherwise known as “UMA” based out of Russia.
UMA will provide a music service to customers directly and on a B2B basis with the Mail.ru group. Mail.ru owns and operates Mail.ru (https://mail.ru), one of largest email providers in Russia / the Commonwealth of Independent States. Mail.ru also owns and operates the three largest social media networks in Russia/ the CIS; VKontakte (VK) (https://vk.com), Odnoklassniki (OK) (https://ok.ru) and Moi Mir (MM) or ‘My World’ (https://my.mail.ru).
Additionally, and as part of the licensing deal, UMA is also making content available in BOOM, a mobile application developed by the group on their behalf which will serve as a standalone music app for the social network users of Mail.Ru Group.
“This deal is a move forward for us in the market of Russia. With great partnerships already in place, we continue to look at the market as a very positive and opportunistic area for our record labels and artists distributed. To see UMA handle the relationships with these networks further ensures that people can legitimately use material rather than having their material illegally shared.” – Jorge Brea, Founder & President
Clients of Symphonic Distribution will now see “United Media Agency” as a partner via their dashboards and further, will be able to start delivering content immediately.
