Accenture Interactive to Drive The 1’s Customer Experience Journey in Thailand
BANGKOK; October 12, 2020 – Accenture Interactive, part of Accenture (NYSE: ACN), has been appointed by The 1, Thailand‘s leading loyalty platform, to transform its customer experience strategy using experience design, analytics and personalization.
 
As the top digital lifestyle and loyalty platform of Thailand and Southeast Asia, The 1 is part of Thailand’s Central Group, which strives to deliver a seamless and personalized omnichannel experience to over 17 million members on its platform, anytime and everywhere with continuous development. This will help transform a new kind of Experience Economy in Thailand. 
 
“Customer experience is now clearly at the heart of digital transformation for The 1. Our ambition is to build a ‘Digital Lifestyle & Loyalty Platform’ that goes beyond loyalty points and delivers the most personalized and differentiated experiences that address all customer needs and retain customer loyalty,” said Dr. Ton Chirathivat, President - The 1. “This collaboration enables us to capitalize on Accenture Interactive’s global expertise and technology capabilities to create an integrated ecosystem and fast-track our journey as a leader in the experience economy.” 
 
The 1’s transformation journey began by working with Accenture Interactive to reimagine the cross-channel user experience and transform The 1 into an experience-led loyalty business. Tapping into Accenture Interactive’s deep digital experience combined with its marketing and design expertise, a major part of the transformation was to create a digital ecosystem that enables The 1 to offer a highly personalized experience with flexibility to respond quickly to changing customer and market demands. 
 
Accenture Interactive helped The 1 rewire its technology capabilities and bring living services to its users. This includes designing data-driven loyalty programs, expanding the partner ecosystem through advanced analytics, improving the user experience of The 1 app as well as supporting its workforce transformation using adaptable intelligent solutions. Accenture Interactive built the platform on Adobe Experience Cloud to further elevate and scale the user experience. 
 
In addition, Accenture Interactive’s helped The 1 introduce real-time data access with an opportunity to better understand and service the customer throughout the entire digital journey, giving the loyalty platform the ability to create a holistic customer experience across all touchpoints and provide content customized for its members. Next generation features using personalization and gamification will also reward members in more relevant ways. 
 
For instance, The 1 ‘Mission’ is a feature where members earn points and redeem awards for completing a variety of missions across Central Group and participating partners within the new The 1 application. This feature is part of the development of The 1 platform to deliver a more active shopping experience and ensure long-term customer engagement. 
 
“Winning in today’s digital world is about creating great experiences. We have assembled a talented team with dynamic capability mix in Accenture Interactive’s to empower The 1 with technology and marketing to take their member engagement to the next level. By connecting deep human and business insights with the possibilities of technology, we embed experience-led transformation into The 1 which enables them to better understand their members and deliver the most engaging and differentiated experiences to win and retain customers’ loyalty,” said Irwin Lim, managing director of Accenture Interactive for ASEAN. “The cost of acquiring a new customer is five times more than the cost of retaining a current customer, and our collaboration with The 1 will help provide the capabilities to reimagine and transform their organization into a business of experience.”
