In recent years, due to the strengthening of privacy legislation around the world, more and more platforms are starting to block third-party cookies. Despite this, all companies, regardless of scale or industry, are having to decide how to obtain the data needed to respond to changes in consumer values and behaviors. Demand for efficient, globally-compatible data is ever increasing, especially in the fields of cross-border EC and digital media. Digital transformation, which sits at the nexus of Globalization, Digitalization, and Consumption Diversification, is becoming more and more essential for the process of collecting, processing, and reporting on consumer data.

Example Data Collection Problem: Global Marketing Research

One example of an issue in the existing system is the data collection of global marketing research. For example, if a company considering cross-border e-commerce wants to concept test its products with online buyers in Europe, North America, and Asia, many layers are created between the commissioning company and the consumers who respond to the survey. The extended process eventually affects the research cost and time, and the commissioning company often cannot control the process from data collection to analysis, visualization, and utilization.

What is SynoCloud?

SynoCloud is Syno’s proprietary CDaaS (Consumer Data as a Service) platform of products and services for the collection, processing, and reporting of consumer data. Established in 2016, Syno has been providing SynoCloud data solutions in the fields of global marketing research, customer experience (CX), and digital marketing, all while drastically reducing costs for our end clients. To this end, we have also helped clients improve their customer experiences and marketing ROI, as well as create new monetization sources through the data we collect on their behalf.

6. Significant Reductions in Data-Related Costs

By improving existing data collection, analysis, and reporting processes, you can significantly reduce data outsourcing and operational costs and strengthen your business with existing data.

SynoCloud Partners Examples

1. Market Research Companies

By using SynoCloud in domestic and international quantitative and qualitative surveys, data-related costs and time can be significantly reduced. Through using our panel management system, it is possible to continuously conduct research on niche targets that would be difficult to recruit with conventional market research panels.

2. Consulting Companies

Our experience management system allows for the continuous collection of loyalty indicators, such as customer/employee satisfaction and NPS, from multiple touch points (in-store/online). By consistently collecting such data, consulting companies are able to effectively make use of the voices of customers and employees. By using SynoCloud, consulting companies can not only reduce conventional research costs, but can connect to their end client’s CRM or support systems for timely action when problems crop up.

3. Advertising and Media Agencies

By linking their existing services with SynoCloud, advertising and media agencies can take advantage of zero party data for CX improvements, CRM measurement, advertising promotion, and media monetization support. In addition to significantly reducing costs, agencies using SynoCloud to collect data in-house can connect to other systems via API and can visualize marketing ROI.

4. Ad Technology and Marketing Companies

By integrating SynoCloud with DMPs, CDPs, marketing automation tools, and IOT platforms, ad technology and marketing companies can optimize their ROI with more comprehensive zero- and first-party data. Collecting and using this self-reported data also allows more accurate customer segmentation and look-a-like modeling.
