Ashwin Padmanabhan, executive vice president and business head, RBNL, says, "As our brands 92.7 Big FM, Big Magic and Big Magic Ganga continue to expand their digital footprints, it was imperative that we work with a partner who understands our brands and is ahead of the curve in the design and execution of digital and social media communication. Performics fits this bill perfectly for us."

We believe that the Performics global play-book on media technology that drives planning across platform and channel were our key differentiators."
