Oorja 2017

Oorja, Qwikcilver’s annual sports event, witnessed a brilliant display of talent, dedication and unparalleled enthusiasm.

Though the main event was a day long there were a series of matches held a few days prior, all of it building-up to the finale.

The desire to not just bring home the trophy but to also put in one’s best was so great that practice sessions were held in full vigour pre / post work and on weekends.

The QCians (yes, that’s what the Qwikcilver / QC folks are called) from across functions were divided into four teams – Red Hawks, Blue Panthers, Flaming Tigers and Green Tornadoes.

Each of the teams participated in various sporting events ranging from football, cricket, badminton, throw-ball, volleyball, chess, table tennis, carom to relay and other medley events.

The day drew to a close with the Red Hawks emerging as the winning team.

But even though the QCians were divided by their teams they were united in spirit. As Shankar Balan, President at Qwikcilver, rightly puts it, “The tempo, the buzz, the sportsmanship, the competitive spirit, the celebration and camaraderie in success and the magnanimity in defeat, came through so very clearly indeed.”




Business Schools Go Woohoo !

It was a wholesome Woohoo experience for the alumni of two Business Schools of India – IIM Calcutta and XLRI.

On February 12th, the alumni of these two leading Business Schools organised a Sports Competition in Bangalore as an extension of the same Annual Sports Event that takes place at the campus.

Alumni of the two Business Schools participated in games that were evenly contested.

Gruelling contests were seen in Cricket, Football, Badminton, Table Tennis, Basketball and Throwball.  In addition, a Corporate Quiz was held between the two competing Schools. As was to be expected, when teams from these two B-Schools competed, the games were played in a highly charged atmosphere. The teams played to their best – with the players coming together on a Sunday weekend to put their skills to test.

Over a hundred alumni and their families from these Business schools descended on the venue throughout the day. With a blend of high competition, with the joy and vibrancy of Sports.

Woohoo Experience!

Brand Woohoo engaged as Gift Card Partner with this audience of IIMC & XLRI Alumni.

To add to their competitive spirit, all the attending players were pleasantly surprised to receive a specially crafted Woohoo Gift Card Package, right at the time of their entry at the Venue.

The Experience package included a Woohoo Gift Card that could be used by the recipient for Gift Cards of over 150 leading brands of their choice from Woohoo.in or the Woohoo Mobile App.

In addition, the players also received a Gifting Experience created specially by Qwikcilver. For this experience, the Qwikcilver team ideated on various options and exclusively partnered with India’s leading and popular book lending Library Chain – JUST BOOKS.

This unique Just Books Gift Card experience enables the recipients to avail a smooth and seamless service at any Just Books Library of their choice across India.

The winners of the various trophies for each game were also presented with Woohoo powered Gift Card Experiences.

This included Shopping Experiences across a mix of India’s leading aspirational and lifestyle brands via Gift Cards from Peter England, Marks & Spencer, Lifestyle, Croma and Louis Philippe.

The attendees at these games included CEOs, CXOs, and Business Managers from leading brands, organisations and start-ups across India, including Accenture, Microland, Wipro, Tata group, Birla Group, Infosys, IBM, Deloitte, Amazon among others.

All-in-all it was a fun-filled day for the attendees and their families who got to experience the delight of receiving Woohoo Experiences along with the exciting games.



Always Forget an Important Occasion? Not anymore!

Do you find yourself somehow forgetting people’s birthdays, anniversaries etc on D-Day? (I’m guilty of it myself!) Or, perhaps, you’re someone who likes to have things planned well in advance and have gifts delivered as per the plan on those specific dates? Woohoo’s “scheduled gifting” option now allows you to have your wishes and E-Gift Cards delivered to your loved ones exactly when they need to be delivered, be it Valentine’s Day, Diwali or other such occasions.

That’s right! You can now select the specific date on which you want the E-Gift Cards to be delivered. This feature does ease the pressure of having to “remember” to send it on time for the occasion or, worse still, remembering it days after the event has passed.

Never be guilty of forgetting another important occasion again!
