F+W Renews and Expands Relationship with Palm Coast Data
PALM COAST, Fla. (May 7, 2014) – Palm Coast Data has been awarded a multi-year, full-service subscription fulfillment contract with F+W, a content + e-commerce company. The new agreement renews and combines the previously separate contracts of F+W and its recently acquired New Track Media business.
