The collaboration between BSG Amanet & Exchange and MKOR started in 2020, when our client wanted an annual market audit. The audit aims to determine our client’s positioning on the Romanian pawnshop and foreign exchange market.

The company used the data obtained from the competitive environment analysis and its identified strengths to fundament its positioning strategy and adapt its marketing communication.

In 2022, BSG Money Exchange called on MKOR to conduct a perception study on the currency exchange transaction acceptance form offered in its agencies, while also measuring the satisfaction level of its customers in 20 cities across the country, with the aim of improving customer experience.

After analyzing BSG Money Exchange customers’ perception of the currency exchange transaction acceptance form offered in its agencies, we identified its perceived usefulness as well as the level of trust towards the brand.

Regarding the level of customer satisfaction, the data obtained from the analysis showed that BSG Money Exchange is a valued brand with an above average satisfaction level and NPS score.
