The MCA/System is now a comprehensive cloud-based solution that provides for marketing & communications tracking, and new programmed input of business data. It includes decision support systems in marketing & communications, supported by automated dashboarding that connect the marketing & communications experts and the business managers with the information and the resources they need to work more effectively.

Our Commitment

As more brand owners want to improve their marketing and revenue performance capabilities, we are committed to making the power of MCA/System available quickly, cost effectively and with high quality support.

About MCA

BXG has developed a unique Voice of the Consumer (VoC) based Brand Experience methodology, universal ‘Brand Experience’ currency and analytics platform (powered by the Market ContactAudit® - MCA®) that provides quantitative category, market and brand-specific insights that inform responsible resource allocation and execution decisions and are strong predictors of brand health and market share growth. It measures and manages all elements of the Marketing & Communication mix empowering the Marketing function towards:

EFFECTIVENESS | EFFICIENCY | ACCOUNTABILITY

Rather than the input-based measures such as click-throughs and GRPs that have traditionally been used by marketeers, BXG uses true outcome-based MCA® Brand Experience metrics that correlate strongly with consumer choice and market share movement.
