LinTeractive bags digital mandate for Larsen & Toubro

LinTeractive, the digital division of MullenLowe Lintas Group has bagged the mandate for digital marketing of L&T across all its businesses, including performance media buys.

 Larsen & Toubro (L&T) is often referred to as ‘the Builder of India in the 21st Century’, and the Company that carries the flag of India Inc. across multiple geographies. For over seven decades, L&T has been making a critical contribution to high impact sectors of the economy - Defence, IT, Infrastructure, Construction and Heavy Engineering. L&T was looking at the digital medium as a force multiplier for its strategic communications.

 After a multi-agency pitch that saw leading national agencies compete, L&T chose LinTeractive as its digital partner. L&T was impressed with LinTeractive’s strategic framework which provides a roadmap for companies looking to be future ready in the digital domain.

Commenting on the association, Deepak Morada, Vice President Corporate Brand Management & Communications at L&T said, “Digital is a key focus area and as a group we wanted to go beyond looking at it as just another medium, truly harnessing the power of digital to change the conversation. At L&T, we’re at the forefront of technology across multiple domains and industries – we aim to provide an equally cutting edge experience to our customers, and we have reason to believe that LinTeractive possesses the requisite skills and experience.” 

 The challenges of digital for a large conglomerate is not a simple thing, but Sumanta Ganguly, Executive Vice President, LinTeractive feels that it needs to start with changing how digital is perceived across the multiple stakeholders inside the organization.

Commenting on the state of digital marketing in India, Ganguly said “The business of digital in India for most brands today remains an additional check box –a thing to do. At LinTeractive we look at digital as a way of doing things instead. With L&T we sensed an opportunity to deploy the power of this concept in response to the increasingly digital world of today.”

On partnering with L&T, Vikas Mehta, Group CMO & President – Marketing Services, MullenLowe Lintas Group said, “In the past 70 odd years, the L&T Group has played a pivotal role in building things that are at the core of today’s India. During these 70 odd years, Lintas has partnered hundreds of brands into becoming a part of India’s popular culture. The opportunity to collaborate with L&T, as they aim to re-imagine their businesses for a digital world, is a matter of great pride for the MullenLowe Lintas Group. We realize the tremendous responsibility that L&T has entrusted LinTeractive with.”
