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.
