AxisDirect Bags the DMA Asia ECHO® Gold Award 2016 for Real Time Emailers
Real Time e-mailers by AxisDirect overcome the challenges faced in traditional email communication where data is static, by providing market information and news as it happens. Real-time personalization technology addresses the most critical factor of providing live information at the right time, creating a real value for customers. This innovation is most relevant to stock markets as news, indices and stock prices change every second and real-time data is critical to make investment decisions. The email displays live content e.g. live stock/index rates, live portfolio value, live portfolio actionable, current research picks, market open & close countdown whenever a customer opens the email. AxisDirect has seen significant increase of ~ 50% in the open rates and ~100% in click rates of the real time emails. AxisDirect’s customer rating on these emails is 4+ out of 5 stars.
With nominations across 9 countries China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand & Vietnam, DMA Asia ECHO® 2016 honored AxisDirect with the Gold award.
Commenting on winning the award, Mr. Arun Thukral, MD & CEO, Axis Securities said, “Email with its wide reach & cost effectiveness is an extremely significant medium to reach out to customers. Our aim was to empower users with real-time market data to enable them to make smart investing decision. As DMA Asia ECHO® Awards serves as a benchmark for recognizing creative excellence, we are elated by the appreciation of our efforts towards providing better customer experience.
