ibs rebrands to Fulcro; redefines itself as strategic partner for brands in digital-first world
Fulcro after elevating from a digital agency to a strategic partner and now has expanded and enhanced their portfolio of services with individual service verticals.
With the evolving needs of clients in a digital-first world, the company has reinvented itself to meet the compelling necessities and make itself future ready in terms of its business model and services.
In 2003, Sabyasachi Mitter founded his entrepreneurial venture Interface Business Solutions (now Fulcro) to offer technology-led digital solutions to brands. That later transformed into a complete digital marketing services agency along with every conceivable digital service including social, experiential, direct response, online media planning & buying among others. Shortly, ibs won over 200 awards for its work in the digital and marketing space, including winning the Agency of the Year title 17 times. The agency also achieved winning the Grand Prix at ABBY and the Grand EMVIE at the EMVIES in the same year in 2014.
“I believe disruption is always just around the corner. It is better to disrupt and reinvent one’s own business than to be disrupted by someone else”, said Sabyasachi Mitter, Founder, and Managing Director, Fulcro when explaining the reason for the change. “In the day and age when digital is a key driver of a brands success in the market, our clients were looking for thought leadership as well as best in class service in each service vertical that they needed. It was no longer about clients choosing a single agency for ease of operations but the best in class in every vertical. We did not want to be the Jack of all but the master of all, and that is the premise on which Fulcro has been built”. Sabyasachi further adds.
