What does the name Indus B2C signify?
The holy river Indus is witness to the creation of world’s first and most intelligent civilization (The Vedas were written in the Indus basin and world’s foremost University Takshila was established here as well). The erstwhile name of the river is “Sindhu”, from which the word “Hindu” comes (People living beyond the Indus were referred to as Hindus since ancient times). This creative genius of Indian civilization is the DNA of our company with the culture of the organization being multinational.
B2C (Business to Consumer) was the starting focal point of the company’s biz, while the vision has always been to have bulk of sales coming from B2B (Business to Business). We firmly endeavour and dedicate the same manicured attention and care to the company’s B2B’s sales as we do for B2C.

How will a deal with Indus B2C help a company in the B2B space or one which does not have a Brand?
A B2B business has relatively limited clients and therefore the belief is that it does not need to carry out any mass marketing programs including advertising, to increase sales revenue (demand side factors). However, the end customer of the client is just one of the stakeholders for a B2B company. The brand needs to positively influence multiple stakeholders as is relevant to his business/category. These stakeholders would range from existing and future talent, shareholder community, investor community, policy makers, vendors, financial institutions etc. The supply side factors which affect the profitability of a company include employee costs, vendors, investors, bankers. A better brand image relates to potentially enhanced employer of choice positioning leading to higher retention, lower recruitment costs and lower salary costs to attract outside employees; enhanced image and higher traction amongst suppliers for better terms and higher bargaining power; higher investor confidence; higher confidence among bankers for better interest on loans. Overall enterprise value can be significantly enhanced through brand building by B2B companies. Partnering with Indus B2C will open the world markets for your B2B biz.
