“I am delighted to see Tute’s 49 touchpoint model and like any other strategy framework this will tremendously help in understanding and executing different types of PR activities along with multiple other marketing communication activities. This will help in integrating PR with advertising and other forms of brand communication. In a world where clients deal with a variety of creative and strategic partner agencies, such a tool strengthens the integrated focus and eases the coordination. I would like to congratulate Tute for being the first to launch this and I can’t wait to use it in my classes” Prof. Falguni Vasavada - Professor, MICA (Mudra Institute of Communications Ahmedabad)
“The digital age has brought with it changes in how we do business and the need to reimagine how PR as a practice can be executed. In order to meet these challenges, we have seen a shift in thinking and methodology, leading to more agility and speed in strategy development and execution across various communication functions. The good news is that all this has created an opportunity for those of us who know better, to help others see; invest in and embrace change. Tute’s new model is a step in the right direction that will consolidate client/agency formats across all channels and make strategic plans that were easy to understand and implement with much-needed standardisation. With this new tool PR teams will become more efficient and agile as they spend less hours creating bespoke plans for brands without getting lost in the realms of excel sheets and ppts. I am looking forward to the introduction of this format across the industry.” - Tarunjeet Rattan, Founder – PRPOI and Managing Partner – Nucleus PR
