London design group Cairnes has linked up with French e-commerce specialist Integra by becoming one of its 20 commerce partners.
Cairnes, which specialises in corporate communications, is placing more emphasis on its own digital media services. The consultancy sees the partnership with Integra as an “essential” part of its progress in the sector.
“It is so vital we do this in order to consolidate and push forward our digital media offer,” says Cairnes director Barry Semark. “We will be responsible for the front end of the websites – navigation, design and building areas – while Integra are going to do all of the programming at the back end.”
Integra channel marketing manager Sandy Dhir says: “Cairnes is one of our strongest partners and is working on some very strong projects at the moment. It’s one of three design consultancies which are Integra commerce partners, each specialising in different areas, including music, law and finance.
“The other partners are SchwartzGarcia Web Consultants and What’s The Big Idea.”
As part of the new alliance between the two companies, Cairnes is one of four partners featuring on Integra’s stand at the Internet World show which ends today at Earls Court.
