本報告提供3大儲值卡經營者(Blackhawk Network Holdings Inc.、epay、InComm)的由離線朝數位途徑轉變的相關案例研究彙整。
A new research report from Mercator Advisory Group, Embracing a Digital Future: Three Case Studies in Prepaid Card Distribution, examines the successful transition from offline to digital channels, including mobile, online, and virtual, made by the three major players in the card distribution market: Blackhawk Network Holdings Inc., epay (a division of Euronet Worldwide Inc.), and InComm. These case studies provide a road map that companies with traditional products and methods can follow to pivot and expand into the digital future.
The competitive landscape for all payments is rapidly changing with the emergence of new technologies and consumer preferences for virtual, digital, and mobile products. Companies are at risk of displacement if they don't respond accordingly and update their businesses to embrace these technologies. The strategic decisions of the three companies profiled in this report have positioned them well to respond to these changing dynamics, and their decisions over the last three years are organized into separate categories, including entering new businesses, updating existing lines of business, and developing new technologies. How they achieved these goals is broken down in the report into various strategies that can be implemented across a variety of business types.
"The companies that have been largely dependent on plastic cards have found ways to prepare for a digital future," said Ben Jackson, Director of Mercator Advisory Group's Prepaid Advisory Service. "Their examples provide lessons for companies who need to adapt to new technologies."
