We are a marketing technology company with offices in Sunnyvale, California and Bhubaneswar, India.
Tikkl is an integrated marketing solution for businesses to run all kinds of interactive marketing campaigns to nurture and generate new leads though their network. We also provide professional services to design and execute campaigns.
How Tikkl came about
Having worked for many years at enterprise software companies in customer-facing roles supporting marquee customers, we learned that our companies’ most successful marketing was through our customers and business partners to their trusted connections.
Leveraging social influence is the key to marketing success.
So, we set out to build a solution infusing social media into traditional business marketing processes, to bring businesses and customers together to promote the products and services they both care about.
Nivi Padhy CEO and Co-Founder
Nivi drives the vision at Tikkl and enjoys being involved in anything and everything that impacts our users. She brings to Tikkl a passion for engaging with customers from her twenty years of experience in Customer Support and Marketing at enterprise software companies such as Computer Associates, Ingres, Informix, Infosys and nonprofits Youth Science Institute, WIB, and LNYUP. At Computer Associates, she owned responsibility for worldwide support of the Ingres data replication product and was instrumental in driving down product defects and improving customer experience.
Nivi also served on the Board of Directors for the Youth Science Institute, a California nonprofit, and was a key member of their fundraising and marketing committees. Nivi holds a B.E. in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from BITS Pilani, India and has attended MBA coursework at Santa Clara University. With many vices to choose from — Bourne movies, the Colbert Report, math puzzles, and sushi — Nivi can be sometimes seen slacking off in the twenty-fifth hour of the day.
