But witnessing the digital revolution in India in all segments & verticals, we understand this was the right time for CenturyPly to step into the digital world and connect with the target audiences. To engage and create a successful digital campaign for a heritage brand like CenturyPly, conviction in the brand's philosophy and an innovative approach was required. We are extremely thankful to CenturyPly for their faith in us and giving us this opportunity." Said Santosh Kumar, Co-founder, Webitude (A part of Digital Quotient)

"CenturyPly is the industry leader for a reason- it's huge portfolio. And that was the design challenge. Let consumers both find and discover products as per their requirement. Key objective was to demystify the category and let users make informed choices." Said, Asim Sah, Creative Head, Webitude (A part of Digital Quotient)

The new communication was launched by introducing the new website and announcing the communication on Twitter wherein the campaign was built on the brand line 'Khushiyon Ka Rangmanch' wherein users were invited to share their furniture stories with which they have an emotional connect with.

"Given the greater than before internet penetration, businesses are increasingly shifting their attention from the traditional marketing media to digital media. We were looking for an agency that understands our objective and can communicate the same across various digital platforms. We really liked team's understanding of the brand and the Digital landscape", said Amit Gope, Head of Marketing, CenturyPly India.
