The World Marketing Congress (WMC) is globally known for its contributions to the marketing industry and is one of the largest conglomerates in India. WMC was established in 1991 under the leadership of Mr. Nand Kishore Badami in order to recognize companies for their contributions to marketing, leadership, and sustainability.

IAS India, the Indian subsidiary of a leading German ERP provider, was one of the 1500 companies to participate in the WMC. The award stirred a wave of enthusiasm at the IAS India headquarters in Pune, after IAS was named the winner of the Brand Excellence Award in the IT/ITES category.

“This award is a great boost for our team, which works passionately to develop a product that strategically fulfills the needs of our customers for their continuous growth,” said Mr. Aykut Belli, Country Manager for IAS India.

“A brand represents not only a product; it is a set of expectations, memories, stories, and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another. To put it simply, we never refrain from going that extra mile.”

Mr. Mateen Shaikh, Head of Marketing & Channels for IAS India, was named one of the “100 Most Influential Marketing Technology Leaders” on the same evening. “Our MarkTech CRM module, which comprises of variety of tools and technologies, is helping many companies to fulfill their goal of becoming a leader in their industry and achieving a competitive edge. It is an honor as a Head of Marketing to receive this prestigious award; this conveys the message that we are heading on the right direction and will continue to do so passionately with each passing day,” Mr. Mateen Shaikh said.

“For me as CEO, this is like icing on the cake. We won the Brand Excellence Award and at the same event Mateen was named one of the ‘100 Most Influential Marketing Technology Leaders’. This is great news for us and our team; this is our start in the Indian market. We promise to provide an excellent solution that will ensure the growth of your business.
