India’s premier Digital Experience Platform (DXP) services provider Tekno Point has joined DEPT®, one of the fastest-growing digital agencies in the world. Tekno Point’s 500 Adobe specialists support clients like Tata Capital, Bajaj, Asian Paints, Rosewood Hotels and AIA in implementing Adobe solutions. Mumbai-based Tekno Point marks DEPT®’s continued expansion in APAC and will bolster its DXP expertise for its global client base.

Founded in 2000 by brothers Himanshu and Yash Mody, Tekno Point has had a singular focus on the Adobe ecosystem and was named APAC Adobe Digital Experience Emerging Partner of the Year for 2021 and 2022.

“Tekno Point’s proven experience engineering approach combined with our deep Adobe expertise helps enterprises realise faster time-to-market and deliver hyper-personalised experiences across channels,” said Himanshu Mody, VP Global Adobe Alliance. “We’re thrilled to join forces and continue our growth globally with DEPT® and to support our shared mission of pioneering the world’s digital experiences.”

Philip Cronin, Senior Director, Adobe Partner Sales, APAC, welcomes the addition: “We are very much looking forward to working very closely with Himanshu, Tekno Point & the team from DEPT to drive even more success in the region”

Founded in Amsterdam in 2015, DEPT® has quickly grown across the globe, from 150 people in the Netherlands to over 4,000 people in seventeen countries across five continents, hitting approximately $500 million in revenue in 2022. The Certified B Corporation is known for delivering pioneering work for brands like Google, Philips, Patagonia, eBay, H&M and Twitch, and became the most awarded agency at the Webby Awards and Lovie Awards last year.

“India holds enormous potential as a domestic market and is host to a truly world-class talent pool,” said Dimi Albers, CEO of DEPT®. “We’ve felt a strong connection and shared culture with Tekno Point when working together on several European and US clients. With growing global demand for Adobe solutions, Tekno Point is ideally placed to help us pioneer with Adobe technology. We’re excited to grow their business into a global service offering.”

DEPT® expanded to Asia Pacific one year ago, headed by former Havas regional CEO Vishnu Mohan. Tekno Point marks the second team to join DEPT® in APAC after Australian digital product studio Two Bulls joined in September 2022, making the APAC team over 700 people strong.

“Tekno Point is just the beginning of our journey in India. DEPT® brings an unrivalled depth of experience in the global creative tech industries to the Indian subcontinent, which we can not wait to share with partners here,” said Mohan.

Now part of DEPT®, Tekno Point will be rebranded as DEPT® and continue to operate under the leadership of Himanshu Mody, VP Global Adobe Alliance, and Yash Mody as CTO APAC & DEPT® Adobe Practice.
