EQS Group AG was honoured with the Grand ARC Award in the category "Interactive Annual Report International" by the 2016 ARC Awards International. The award honours EQS Groups's excellence in implementing the design of its Munich partner for the interactive annual report of the BMW Group.

The ARC Awards are bestowed annually by the US-based MerComm Inc. in honour of excellence in annual reports. EQS was already honoured in mid-August for four reports in their respective industries: Hannover Reinsurance, BMW Group, HMS Group and China Telecom. The report for BMW Group received the special cross-industry "Grand ARC Award," prominently recognising its excellence in international, interactive report.

"We're very proud that our work on this technically challenging project was honoured with the highest distinction. A Grand ARC Award is very special recognition for the entire project team," says Christian Pfleger, COO of EQS Group.

EQS Group has developed digital business and sustainability reports for companies both at home and across the globe for over 15 years, making it a pioneer in Digital Investor Relations. User friendliness and a winning presentation are always EQS's first priority when designing company reports. As such, the BMW Group's report, with its high-resolution photos and elaborately designed videos and numerous effects, represents the "technologies of the future."

"We at BMW Group are very pleased to receive the Grand ARC Award in our anniversary year. Because BMW has the same high, exacting standards in our digital reporting as we have for our automobiles and services, EQS Group, with its cutting-edge solutions, is the right partner for implementing our interactive annual report. With its animated functionality and interaction, the digital report we've created together offers BMW readers real value," says Christian Finkenzeller of the BMW Group.
