TCS Clocks Highest Brand Value Growth in IT Services in 2020
Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has further consolidated its position among the Top 3 most valuable brands in the IT services sector according to Brand Finance, the world’s leading brand valuation firm. According to the Brand Finance IT Services 25 2021 report, TCS grew its brand value by $1.425 Billion – the highest absolute growth among the 25 companies assessed, that too in a challenging year when the brand value of IT services companies collectively dropped by 3 percent. Further, at 10 percent growth over the prior year, TCS has outperformed its peers in the Top 3 category.
This strong growth is primarily attributed to the company’s superior financial, customer and market performance. TCS navigated this period of disruption successfully with the launch of its Secure Borderless Workspaces™ (SBWS™) operating model that helped customers carry out their mission critical activities, and also launch new technology-led transformational initiatives to enhance their operational resilience and deliver superior customer experiences in new virtual and contactless engagements. The seamless adaptation to new ways of working and the increased agility engendered by location-agnostic remote working models have led to faster execution on the ground and enhanced customer satisfaction, helping TCS win more business and gain market share.
“With what was a very tough 2020, led so ably by its CEO Rajesh Gopinathan, TCS has excelled itself once again. Along with 10% growth in its brand, its market cap also hit pole position in its industry and it is increasingly closing in on the top two in the IT services sector table,” said David Haigh, Chief Executive Officer, Brand Finance. “I attribute this ongoing success to TCS’ incredible commitment to serving all its different stakeholders, be it staff, clients, its general public and the wider world. This dedication, over a long period of time, translates itself into consistent and outperforming brand value. 2021 will undoubtedly be another great year for TCS and its brand.”
“This recognition of our brand strength is a stellar reaffirmation of the continued trust that our customers have placed in us over the years. By helping them cope with the pandemic and thrive in the recovery, we demonstrated the undisputed power of resilience, collective knowledge and innovation,” said Rajashree R, CMO, TCS. “We are proud and excited to embark on the next phase of our growth, building on our beliefs, and harnessing the passion, dedication and strength of our 469,000 associates who are the true custodians of Brand TCS.”
