Although the separate businesses have now been consolidated under one holding company, all WPP-Scangroup agencies operate separately. A key factor in WPP-Scangroup's success has been the multi-agency business model.

WPP-Scangroup also buys media in all Sub-Saharan African countries including but not limited to Angola, Burundi, Congo Brazaville, DRC, Ethiopia, Gabon, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
