Changing lifestyles and strong income growth mark the rapidly expanding pace of retail in India. Combined with a revolutionary change in the concept of shopping with the advent of the ‘mall culture’ and hypermarkets, retail has become the country’s largest industry accounting for over 10 per cent of India’s GDP and around 8 per cent of the employment. With organised retailing growing at 25 per cent annually, the need to understand consumer needs and translate them into strategic and innovative solutions for the retail industry forms the framework of the partnership between the two companies.

Leveraging service capabilities of both companies, this partnership aims at providing improved service offering to clients on retail and related services ultimately adhering to the promise of ‘we help shoppers buy’.
