Commenting on the development, Mr Raj N, Founder of eYantra said that, “From our experience of working on corporate branding for large corporates (B2B), we realized that there is a lot of gap between their digital marketing needs versus what is offered by competition. The service model that most Digital marketing agencies offer hinders growth in the long term. There is dearth of good digital marketing agencies with a B2B focus across the world. We aim to fill this void with eYantra Media, a one- stop shop for all branding and marketing needs of B2B enterprises. Hence this association marks the beginning of creating a niche in the B2B SaaS marketing space. We aim to work towards consolidating all our Digital efforts, and stand as the first Digital media company that deploys a structure that works to curate technology and content for the B2B space.”

The pandemic has fastened SaaS adoption across all industries and business formats. Research states that by 2022, almost 75% of all organisations will be using one SaaS solution. To have an edge, it’s imperative to build partnerships that will help create thought leadership. With Digital media as the only channel of sales, it is time that we equip and prepare ourselves to cater to specialised marketing needs for selling technology to the untapped potential of B2B SaaS companies in India.”
