Harnessing the Power of Convergence for Customers
Quebecor has now assembled all the pieces it needs to become a communications powerhouse. We are equipped to deliver a full range of services to individual consumers: analog and digital broadcasting, cable and wireless telephone service, Internet access, publication of newspapers, magazines and books, and the distribution and retailing of CDs, books, magazines, DVDs and other cultural products. We are also equipped to meet the diverse expectations of our business and institutional customers, who come to us for effective advertising solutions that combine print, conventional and interactive television, and the Internet.
Quebecor and its subsidiaries pool their services, resources and expertise to provide free visibility for many cultural organizations and worthwhile causes. Quebecor is also a company that cares about the environment and supports sustainable development in many ways, large and small. For example, since 2007, all black-and-white books published by Quebecor Media Book Group have been printed on recycled paper made of 100% post-consumer fibre.
We are pursuing an effective convergence strategy in order to leverage the reach and reputation of our brands and make our value proposition, the fruit of synergies and combinations among all our properties, still more attractive.
Our customers are already seeing the rich potential of working with a partner of Quebecor's stature, a company capable of inventing new ways of launching products and conducting multimedia advertising and promotional campaigns, giving its partners more visibility, more impact, more commercial benefits. This exciting mission unites all of Quebecor's business segments.
