Editing Media Group

Editing Media Group was the publisher of some authoritative technical magazines like StoreCheck and Elektro-Verkoop, which was published for the first time 40 years ago, but also of several informational editions like: a supermarket guide with all core data of every supermarket in Belgium, a retail guide as well as an out-of-home guide. The purpose of the database is to administer the advertising contacts with all related orders and invoices on one hand, and the numerous readers on the other hand.
