The leading data-driven performance marketing agency, Merkle Sokrati India, from the house of dentsu international, has played a major role in the recognition. Across the marketing and sales cloud ecosystem, this was a culmination of the agency’s many years of hard work to implement innovative solutions, especially for enterprise clients from the auto, retail and entertainment sectors.
Speaking on the recognition, Anand Bhadkamkar, CEO India, dentsu said, “This is yet another well-earned recognition for our continued success with Salesforce.

Anubhav Sonthalia, CEO, Merkle Sokrati added, “At Merkle and dentsu, we specialise in delivering cross-cloud solutions on the Salesforce platform to help leading brands differentiate through data-driven marketing.
