transcosmos inc. is pleased to announce that the company will deliver its proprietary loyalty marketing services based on the “5A’s” research technology to Tokio Marine Holdings, Inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President: Satoru Komiya). transcosmos owns the exclusive rights to use the “5A’s” research methodology based on “Marketing 4.0: Moving from Traditional to Digital” in Japan.
■ About “5A’s”
Marketing 4.0 proposes that a customer path in this era of connectivity consists of 5A’s, namely Aware, Appeal, Ask, Act and Advocate. It describes a consumer decision-making process as a “group decision making” based on various opinions of all individuals and groups that take part in the decision making process; not a process-based only on one individual’s opinion. Based on this idea, MarkPlus promotes two new attributes to measure brand strength: Purchase Action Ratio (PAR) and Brand Advocacy Ratio (BAR)—a set of metrics that evaluate how well brands converts awareness into purchase and advocacy. This concept ultimately repositions the meaning of loyalty from the past definition of repeat buying to new definition of advocacy.
transcosmos released “5A LoyaltySuite,” a suite of services that combines its outsourcing services including digital marketing and the “5A’s” model in May 2019. In June 2019, Tokio Marine Holdings began utilizing the “5A LoyaltySuite,” with the aim of further enhancing their customer loyalty and developing their brand strategies.
