Our aspiration for Horizons was high – to document stories of change created by Tata Trusts through the beneficiary voices and showcase Tata Trusts' impact to key stakeholders. This was the first time in 125 plus history of Tata Trusts that we were bringing out a magazine. We were confident that TIC could deliver, and they did. Feedback from stakeholders, both internal and external demonstrate the value Horizons has created. The stories also get picked up by English and regional language newspapers. TIC has been my content agency of choice for over 21 years, first at Tata Sons and now at Tata Trusts. They have delivered on every occasion, often against stiff deadlines"
Tata Sons has been associated with The Information Company (TIC) since 2000. TIC is our partner agency for two of our flagship products namely TataWorld (Tata group's intranet) and Tata Review (Tata groups's quarterly business magazine). TIC's content, design, digital and technical capabilities are par excellence. TataWorld's engagement scores continue to show a steady rise with the support of team TIC, creating engagements and content that help connect ~300,000 Tata employees across the world"

TATA TRUSTS SPECIAL PUBLICATION
The publication for the Zila Swachh Bharat Prerak (ZSBP) Programme was a prestigious and critical product for us, as it was aimed at a national and global audience of leaders and experts. TIC partnered with us to create a publication that met all our requirements. The end result was a vibrant, attractive report with real life stories and images that captured the efforts and achievements of the programme in multiple Indian states. We are delighted with the results delivered by TIC"

We are happy that TIC executed our vision so powerfully"

STERLITE POWER DIGITAL MAGAZINE
We had engaged TIC to create our digital magazine, The Grid. Over the last two years, this digital magazine has grown into one of our leading external properties. TIC understood our requirement and were able to translate it into exactly the kind of digital asset that we had envisaged. Their creative and content expertise in driving this magazine has been pretty good and has resonated well with our stakeholders"

HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LTD SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN
Hindalco has been focused on creating a diverse and inclusive culture. Promoting the idea of #EachForEqual on social media made sense as it resonates with Hindalco’s strong value system. Our gender diversity campaign helped us give out a positive message and connect with our young and smart audience on social networking sites in an interesting way – in a tone and language that appeals to them"
The initial reviews of the new Shree Cement website are extremely encouraging. I take this opportunity to appreciate the efforts of the team that made it possible, while dealing with all the challenges that go with creating an enterprise digital asset. Team at TIC displayed immense amount of patience, understanding and ownership in getting it closed. Towards the closure, they felt like a part of Shree Cement."
Deepshikha Thakur – Head, Learning and OD, Shree Cement Ltd.
Godrej VIKHROLI CUCINA WEBSITE
Our objective was to create top-of-mind recall for brand Godrej to enhance its reputation in the food space. For this, we conceived a pan-India online platform www.vikhrolicucina.com where food experts, influencers and enthusiasts could engage, network and collaborate.
To bring these varied audiences together, TIC created a comprehensive UI/UX strategy and designed vikhrolicucina.com as a publishing site hosting rich multimedia content. What makes the site unique is the exciting mix of original, curated and user generated content that builds a new experience around food. It also shines a spotlight on India’s leading food influencers and chefs.
Team TIC understood our vision and translated it into an exciting experience. We are delighted with the site."

Sterling & Wilson CONTENT AND CREATIVES
Wish to share my feedback on the outstanding work that TIC has been doing. It is a little more than 5 months that we have started working and I must say that the team has delivered fabulous results. While there is always a room for improvement, I never expected that TIC would pick up so fast in such a short time looking at how the complex business we are into.
I would have loved to mention a few projects which stood out, however, it would be then unfair on the other projects which were equally well delivered. We are now into a new financial year and I am looking forward to having a wonderful and exciting year ahead once we all overcome this unprecedented condition which the whole world is experiencing.
TIC team has been put in remarkable efforts in this period to ensure the project is delivered.
In Henry Ford’s words “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success."

Hindalco Industries Ltd campaign
We had engaged TIC to conceptualize and execute an employee engagement campaign. They came up with the idea called Hindalco Superhits and designed some fascinating Bollywood-style communication which was very effective in grabbing the attention of our employees. We are all bombarded with work emails, but this campaign cut through the clutter and got employees commenting, writing in, and engaging with HR. The campaign also succeeded in connecting to employees in far-flung locations.
The campaign was highly successful because — through the initiatives that it highlighted — it reinforced employee belief in Hindalco’s culture of innovation, collaboration, recognition, learning and women empowerment. It made our people feel proud of being a part of Hindalco.
We are delighted with the results delivered by TIC. First, they understood our requirement clearly and were able to translate it into exactly the kind of work that we had envisaged. Secondly, the project was delivered well within the timeline. The end result was a high level of engagement from employees of all departments and various levels of leadership, and a very satisfying campaign!
I would like to thank all the members from your team who worked on this video. It was a seamless execution and a very good turnaround time. Keep up the good work!
Wish to work with you more often.

Tata Business Excellence Group Annual report
I would like to appreciate the TIC team’s design and content efforts for putting together our annual report for FY 2018-19. The design especially was very vibrant and easy to read, and was appreciated by many stakeholders.

Aditya Birla Group Social Media
If it’s an idea, it’s got to be big, innovative and game changing. That’s the core belief at the Aditya Birla Group. And that’s the reason why we have been supporting the TedX platform. At the TedX Gateway last year, we wanted to really bring out the association of #BigOnIdeas with ABG and create buzz before and after the event. We wanted TIC to create positive and meaningful buzz for ABG’s hashtag #BigOnIdeas on social media. The strategy was two-fold. One, to get a select few speakers, who were influencers in their own right, to tell their stories and also speak about one ‘big idea’ that they thought would change the world. Two, to highlight all the amazing installations that ABG had put up at the event demonstrating the ‘big ideas’ that run the Group’s business. All this had to be done at a bare minimum budget. We were totally delighted with the results. From strategy to the use of influencers and the really intelligent and engaging content, TIC managed to get our hashtag #BigOnIdeas to trend on Twitter and achieve a reach of 24 million across all social media channels!

TIC credentials what we observed.

Sanofi Annual Report
After an arduous month of working on Sanofi’s Annual Report, the printed copies were finally ready and looked beautiful!
A big Thank You to the whole team at TIC who worked on this Annual Report and made it come real within the timelines. I appreciate the way it was handled – very professional and prompt. It was a breeze working with everyone – the project manager, the content and creative teams.
It's been a long and exciting ten-year journey with TIC. Team TIC inspires trust. From our smallest need to the more complex ones, Team TIC bends over backwards to delight us with solutions that are effective, creative and timely. The strategic thought, brilliant communication skills that your exceptionally sincere, capable and committed team brings to the table, makes working with Team TIC a pleasure.

In every one of these projects, the TIC team has delivered exceptional quality and shown a deep commitment to meeting our expectations. We expect this enduring relationship to grow stronger as we grow to newer heights and meet the communication challenges ahead of us.

Arshiya Limited corporate video
We engaged TIC to create our corporate film. From the script to storyboard and from location recce to post-production, TIC managed the end-to-end process very professionally. The video had to be created within tight deadlines. TIC rose up to the challenge and delivered a video that has become an important marketing collateral for us. We appreciate the recommendations that came from TIC at every stage of the production process to make a compelling corporate video.
The Team Is endlessly helpful, flexible and always quick to respond. We couldn't be more pleased with the website created for us by TIC. It is exactly what we had briefed and super easy to navigate. Since we maintain and edit our own website, ease of use on the administrative end was important as well. With the training provided and the responsiveness of the staff at TIC, it is all good!

Tata Business Excellence Group magazine
The Tata Group engaged The Information Company (TIC) to bring out the inaugural issues of "AA Matters", a magazine on the Tata Affirmative Action Programme (TAAP). What set this magazine apart is that the entire process of conceptualising the magazine to getting it ready for distribution was compressed in a month's time. Within this period, TIC was called upon to absorb details of TAAP, a subject of no familiarity, in a manner that its rewrite teams could recast original copies to fit the tight space in the magazine, and design and produce the 32-page magazine in an attractive package. The ultimate product met the objective for which the magazine had been conceived. This would not have been possible without the high quality of professionalism vested in the TIC in terms of designing and producing magazines.

IRIS Software website
We are delighted with the work TIC has done for us. They have understood our needs very quickly and been able to translate it into exactly the kind of website and communication Iris needs.
TIC has a great team with skills complementary to what we have at Iris. We will certainly wish to engage with TIC in other initiatives.
The Darpan e-newsletter has come out really well. The design, the content and the user-friendly format are ideal for our objective of reaching out to our dealers and partners. Our director and senior managers are all happy with the newsletter. Thank you TIC for doing such a great job!
