Transcosmos launches a DM revenue maximization service powered by DataRobot
A highly accurate, machine learning mailing list has expanded sales by 150% whilst cutting costs by 10% 
[Tokyo, Japan, August 6, 2019] transcosmos inc. released a Direct Mail (DM) revenue maximization service powered by “DataRobot,” a tool that automates the machine learning process, in August 2019. By leveraging both cutting-edge AI and its know-how for success that the company has accumulated through operating its mail-order business and offering services to clients, transcosmos helps clients develop highly accurate direct mailing lists internally and maximize revenues of their DM business. transcosmos aims to implement this service to 10 companies by the end of FY 2019.

■ About DM revenue optimization service powered by DataRobot

transcosmos first deploys DataRobot to clients and lets clients apply DataRobot’s machine learning feature to predict purchase probability of each individual customer. With this service, clients can expand sales and reduce costs by executing DM initiatives such as sending DMs only to customers with high purchase probability scores whilst emailing to customers with lower scores. Although DataRobot requires members who have analytical skills, ability to process data and know-how of DM initiatives, transcosmos’s data scientists provide support for clients to perform analysis and share their know-how. Ultimately, the data scientists help clients create highly accurate mailing lists in-house.

■ A solution to bring analytics in-house that wasn’t possible due to a shortage of analysts and tools

Since DM, such as postcards and catalogs, can present a lot of information and senior customers tend to prefer DM due to its readability, the DM initiatives are the core operations for mail-order businesses that directly impact their sales. On the other hand, it takes costs to develop and send DMs. Against this backdrop, an increasing number of businesses are currently seeking to achieve higher returns on investment from their DM initiatives.

In reality, however, most companies lack in-house analysts and tools and therefore outsource analytics to third-party vendors. Yet, given the fact that an analysis performed by in-house members who are well-versed in data specifications, industry and products generates better results than that of third-party vendors’, transcosmos encourages clients to apply DataRobot to automate and perform analytics in-house. transcosmos not only implements DataRobot but also makes its data scientists help clients analyze data and share know-how on creating a direct mailing list.

transcosmos has already executed various DM revenue maximization projects and has achieved successes in membership services and digital marketing initiatives on top of succeeding in clients’ traditional mail-order business that focuses on postal DMs. transcosmos assists clients in expanding their sales, optimizing costs whilst maintaining sales, utilizing digital channels like LINE, and preventing their brand image being tarnished due to excessive DM delivery.

■ Case Studies

(1) DM revenue maximization at Nihon Chokuhan“Nihon Chokuhan,” a transcosmos’s mail-order business sends out DMs to its members on a monthly basis. Traditionally, Nihon Chokuhan has used a third-party vendor to create a direct mailing list and send the DMs only to customers with higher purchase probability scores that were calculated by a machine learning tool to reduce the enormous costs. The reason for outsourcing the process was a shortage of data scientists that made it difficult to operate the process in-house.

Now, the emergence of DataRobot has solved this challenge, enabling businesses to use machine learning without a data scientist. Ahead of others, transcosmos has applied DataRobot for creating a direct mailing list for Nihon Chokuhan business. As a result, the company has successfully developed the list that led to higher sales in a short period of time compared to the list developed by the vendor. The direct mailing list created by DataRobot resulted in a 150% increase in sales and a 50% reduction in man-hours compared to the traditional list developed by the vendor. What’s more, making the process in-house has enabled transcosmos to accumulate analytics know-how internally.

(2) Membership service for a major transportation companyA major transportation company utilizes this service to optimize DM delivery initiatives. The company has been developing their direct mailing list based on RFM (recency, frequency, monetary) analysis, yet due to an excessive DM delivery and wasteful mailing have become management challenges. To address these, the company has decided to use DataRobot for creating a direct mailing list. As a result, the company has successfully reduced the wasteful DM delivery cost by 10% whilst retaining sales.

(3) LINE membership service for a major mail-order company A major mail-order company utilizes this service to send coupons effectively to LINE users. Traditionally, the company has been sending their coupons to all users. By applying DataRobot to predict purchase probability and sending coupons only to LINE segments with higher probability scores, the company has successfully increased ROI by 400%.

transcosmos continues to help clients develop analytics-driven, highly accurate direct mailing in-house and maximize revenues through the offering of the DM revenue maximization service powered by DataRobot.

JA Solar Pasok Modul Half-Cell untuk Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Surya di Afrika

BEIJING, 2 Juli 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: JASO), pembuat produk energi surya berkinerja tinggi yang terkemuka di dunia, hari ini mengumumkan langkah perusahaan dalam memasok modul half-cell 6,5MW bagi pembangkit listrik tenaga surya (PLTS) di Namibia, Afrika. PLTS ini menjadi proyek modul half-cell perdana di Namibia dan penggunaan pertama modul half-cell oleh JA Solar dalam proyek berskala besar (utility-scale).

Terletak di Namibia, proyek ini digarap bersama pengembang kenamaan asal Jerman SunEQ GmbH, perusahaan yang masih satu grup dengan konsultan energi terbarukan Suntrace GmbH, dan vendor solusi energi baru yang terkemuka GILDEMEISTER energy solutions. GILDEMEISTER energy solutions juga bertanggung jawab atas konstruksi proyek itu. Karena cuaca yang panas dan kondisi ultraviolet yang tinggi di Namibia, proyek ini memiliki sejumlah ketentuan yang paling ketat dalam hal keandalan modul PV. Dalam proyek ini, GILDEMEISTER energy solutions memilih modul 72-sel berjenis half-cell buatan JA Solar demi menjamin kapasitas pembangkitan listrik yang stabil dan konsisten.

Dibandingkan dengan sejumlah modul konvensional, modul half-cell JA Solar meningkatkan teknologi interkoneksi, mengurangi kerugian resistansi, memperbesar arus listrik dengan menambah jarak antara sel-sel surya, sehingga menghasilkan peningkatan daya listrik secara efektif. Lebih lagi, modul half-cell JA Solar memiliki koefisien cuaca yang lebih baik. Dengan demikian, keuntungan daya listrik di bawah cuaca panas tampil lebih baik. Lewat optimasi BOM, kemampuan melawan radiasi ultraviolet juga ditingkatkan. Hasilnya, modul half-cell JA Solar mampu berkinerja baik dalam cuaca panas, di tengah kondisi ultraviolet yang tinggi.

Cao Bo, Vice President JA Solar, berkomentar, "Sebagai produsen modul PV terkemuka dunia, kami tetap berfokus pada inovasi teknologi dan mutu produk demi memenuhi beragamnya kebutuhan pelanggan serta berkontribusi dalam upaya mengatasi kendala energi dunia."

Tekan biaya dengan platform data analytics yang didukung kecerdasan buatan dan berbasis blockchain

SINGAPURA, 4 Juli 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sejalan dengan dunia yang menggeluti digitalisasi data, sejumlah perusahaan visioner belajar tentang memanfaatkan data analytics demi menghasilkan keputusan bisnis yang jitu. DATAVLT berupaya membantu usaha kecil dan menengah (UKM) dari beragam industri yang kompetitif agar mereka bisa berkembang dengan menghadirkan layanan data analytics bagi UKM yang belum terjangkau.

Teknologi mendatang buatan perusahaan dibangun pada jaringan yang terdesentralisasi, dikenal dengan blockchain, guna mengurangi ancaman dari aspek gangguan tunggal seperti upaya pembobolan bank data yang terpusat.

UKM dengan dana terbatas sering kesulitan dalam menyesuaikan anggaran dengan evaluasi bermutu dan dapat ditindaklanjuti. Arsitektur DATAVLT yang terdesentralisasi menjamin keberlanjutan fungsionalitas, bahkan jika beberapa bagian dari jaringan mengalami kerusakan. Sebagai prinsip kriptografi, catatan value exchange disimpan dalam buku besar dan dapat diakses pihak lain dalam sistem supaya terlacak. Namun, hanya pihak-pihak yang memegang "kunci digital" (digital keys) yang dapat melihat konten dari sebuah informasi.

Sejalan dengan berkurangnya biaya infrastruktur untuk mengolah data berjumlah besar, teknologi telah mendukung pengumpulan data yang lebih mudah diakses ketimbang masa sebelumnya. DATAVLT ingin menghadirkan platform terbaik bagi sejumlah perusahaan biasa di pasar mana pun sehingga mereka bisa mengakses dan mengkaji data ini lewat kustomisasi open-source. Perusahaan mengajak dan memberi insentif kepada para pengembang pihak ketiga untuk menciptakan perangkat analitis atau vertikal dalam platformnya. Langkah ini mengurangi waktu dan dana bagi UKM dengan meniru proses yang telah dioptimasikan. Hasilnya, para pengembang tersebut akan menerima utility tokens sebagai hadiah ketika sejumlah perusahaan atau individu tertentu memakai produk dan layanan dalam ekosistem platform.

Guna mengurangi biaya pemasangan infrastruktur, perawatan mesin dan sumber daya manusia, DATAVLT mengenakan biaya terhadap klien hanya ketika mereka memakai layanan analitis dengan skema pay-per-use. Berbagai klien dapat diuntungkan atas penghematan dari mesin yang tak terpakai dan menghindari biaya berlangganan dari penyedia layanan lain. Perusahaan memperkirakan peluang yang layak dalam menghadirkan berbagai perangkat data analytics yang lebih komprehensif, dibandingkan perangkat biasa yang ditemui di pasaran. Perangkat itu biasanya hanya menawarkan beberapa aspek dalam bisnis, atau terbatas dalam hal cakupan fungsi. DATAVLT menghimpun data perilaku konsumen dari bidang ekonomi, sosiologi dan antropologi, menyatukan data tersebut dengan penyusunan profil, tonality dan sentimen untuk menghasilkan kajian yang lebih mendalam dan bermakna. Tujuannya, menghasilkan pengalama konsumen yang lebih sesuai kebutuhan, penyelesaian sejumah isu layanan konsumen dan mengelola risiko ancaman serta peluang tantangan bisnis. Selain itu, algoritma platform dan kecerdasan buatan DATAVLT akan memilah, memperingkas dan menolak data yang meragukan dari waktu ke waktu, khususnya saat menemukan kejanggalan yang mempengaruhi analisis prediktif. Fitur machine learning akan meningkatkan mutu kajian secara berkala, dan memfasilitasi pengambilan keputusan yang berdasarkan informasi.

Di tengah besarnya permintaan akan analisis data perusahaan, DATAVLT berjuang menciptakan produk kompetitif guna meningkatkan status quo dan mendorong lebih banyak perusahan kecil agar menerapkan big data.


DATAVLT adalah platform data analytics yang gesit, inovatif dan hadir secara on-demand, dijamin oleh teknologi Blockchain. Platform tersebut dirancang untuk menyediakan berbagai wawasan yang terpadu dan terkorelasi. Didukung oleh kecerdasan buatan dan kemampuan machine learning, platform ini mendukung berbagai perusahaan agar dapat memaknai era big data dan meningkatkan efisiensi biaya. Lebih penting lagi, DATAVLT menjadi platform manajemen data/informasi yang terpadu. Hubungi kami di

FAQs for AIRBNB and DJUBO’s API Partnership

DJUBO and Airbnb have announced an Official API integration which is an official 2 way sync. Djubo is one of the very few in India which has been successful in integrating with Airbnb. Airbnb is now open to listing even traditional hotels and bed and breakfasts and all kinds of accommodation businesses on its platform. With this partnership, DJUBO’s client hotels will be able to manage their rates and inventory on Airbnb seamlessly without having to login to the Airbnb app or extranet.

How is Airbnb’s business model and interface different from other OTAs:

  • The listing title on Airbnb cannot be the commercial name of the property. It should be a descriptive name. For example : “Hotel Taj Palace” will not be approved for listing. However “Spacious Luxury Suite on MG Road” is acceptable.
  • Airbnb’s commission structure is different from all other OTA’s. While it charges only 3% to hosts/hotels – an additional service fee of 0 – 20% is charged to the guest.
  • If Hotel has a GST/VAT registration, the Airbnb will apply the applicable slab on the sell rate along with its 0 – 20% commission and then sell to the client. Airbnb will passback 97% of sell rate and 99% of GST/VAT to the hotel’s account. To understand this or question on any calculations the hotels can write to [email protected]
  • Traditionally, a regular listing owner approves/authorizes a guest to allow him to make a booking after the owner has chatted with him on the Airbnb App. However, If a hotel is approved for availing the API connectivity through DJUBO then Instant Book feature is automatically switched on for that property. This means that the guest need not chat with the owner or request for a room and will be able to easily book rooms without any engagement with the listing owner.
  • In Airbnb , one listing can only be booked one at a time. No one can book 4 deluxe room rooms at a go. They can only book deluxe rooms 4 times. Each listing doesnt have an inventory attached to it, but has an available/closed status only. So when rooms run out on DJUBO, the status of this listing will be changed to Closed so that no more rooms are sold on Airbnb or on other OTAs.


Which rates will be pushed to Airbnb via DJUBO?

– DJUBO will be pushing the sell rates that the hotel sets up on the OTA rates tab under Manage this property > Rate Setup > Best Available Rates > OTA Rates.

How will Airbnb handle GST/VAT?

– Airbnb will also apply GST/VAT on sell rate and markup the rates that the guest pays. In case the host has no such registration then no tax will be levied over and above.
– Hosts will be passed back 97% of the Sell Rate and 99% of the GST/VAT when a booking happens in the bank account setup in the Payout Preferences by the host.
– In order to inform Airbnb about your GST/VAT registration number please email [email protected]

How can i start using Airbnb’s API Connectivity via DJUBO?

Operating through secure Seos technology, an encrypted key is delivered securely to a guest's smartphone, which they then use to open their guestroom door, as well as accessing other onsite amenities and secured areas. Using advanced RFID technology, the VingCard Allure electronic lock features a unique interactive and customizable LED panel that is housed on the wall adjacent to the guestroom door, rather than on the door itself.

You may be the best property in town, but unless you’re able to pitch this to your customers in a manner that will break through the clutter and attract their attention, you cannot grow. This in a nutshell is why you need branding.

Let’s start at the beginning. What is branding? Why you need it?

A brand is the image and identification of a company or entity that tells the consumer all about the company. A strong brand is vital for encouraging direct bookings, along with dozens of other benefits. It is a trigger that will help people choose you over the unknown. Think of the Marriott ‘M’ versus another property. If rates and other comparatives are same, which one are you more likely to go with?
Branding allows you to drive more direct bookings, compete more strongly against competitors on OTAs, and take control of your message and your online presence.

How to build a successful hotel brand?

The key to branding is to have a very distinct and unique selling proposition that will appeal to a targeted audience. Let’s break this into easy tips for brand building.

What’s your story?

What sets you apart from the others? Is it your design, a historic tale or your service style? Put on a guest’s hat and see what your point of difference is. Build your brand around this unique story. Connect with your users on an emotional level in order to create an environment that is interesting and engaging.

Brand to a specific market segment.

Instead of being nothing to everybody, be something to fewer people. Build your brand with this audience in mind. For instance if you’re targeting millennials, emphasise on your cutting-edge design and digital facilities. A family property would rather focus on play areas and childcare facilities.

Build a strong visual identity.

Your brand identity should carry from your logo right down to your stationery, online ads and other branded material. Your visuals should reflect your hotel and its unique story. But remember, at the end of the day these are just visuals – your real brand is you story, not the logo.

Connect on an emotional level.

Your property is more than four walls and a bed. If you connect with a consumer’s need for romance, adventure or another emotion, you can build a longer lasting brand, even demand a premium for it.

Get smart about marketing your brand.

Not everyone has deep pockets like the Hilton or Marriott. Be selective about how you market your brand – to whom and where. A targeted approach is not just efficient, it is more effective. You may reach fewer people and at a higher cost, but the conversion will be higher.
At the same time, make it easy for your guests to market you. In the age of social media  explosion, if you have a good story to tell, your guests will spread the word for you.  

Brand building is not for a select few with deep pockets. If you create your unique story and sell it to a smaller, targeted travel market, the result will be sustainable profitability. Visit here to know more

HOUSTON, TX, January 22, 2018—SHR, Sceptre Hospitality Resources, a leading provider and pioneer of advanced hotel distribution technologies, has unveiled a new CRS product, in addition to three new global Property Management System (PMS) integrations for its Windsurfer® CRS, and a powerful new direct connect with one of the largest Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) in Europe.

A truly new Windsurfer, Essentials is a streamlined CRS and booking engine designed to better-serve hoteliers who need a leaner way to manage distribution for their growing hotels.

Protel Hotel Software caters to a full range of hotels, from independent to large multi-national chains. Serving the global hotel market for 22 years in over 90 countries, Protel is currently one of the largest PMS providers in the European and Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions.

PHM Hospitality’s collection of up to eleven hotels and resorts in Indonesia will have the option of training their employees through mobile learning

Scalable, standardised mobile learning solutions will ensure the same learning curriculum is available to all properties

JAKARTA, May 9, 2017 – Qooco, the leading mobile learning solutions provider for the hospitality industry, will provide mobile learning solutions to PHM Hospitality, one of Indonesia’s largest hospitality and lifestyle groups. The partnership will allow all of PHM Hospitality’s 11 properties (17 by end 2017) to access the mobile learning solutions, providing high-quality English and Mandarin language training to its 880 hotel employees.

PHM Hospitality has a growing portfolio of properties throughout Indonesia, ranging from city hotels to luxury resorts, welcoming guests from all over the world who speak various languages and possess different cultures. As a result, the company have invested in employee training to ensure they are able to continue providing the highest level of service for current and future guests.

“Mobile learning is perfect for a company such as PHM Hospitality which has multiple properties around Indonesia” says David Topolewski, CEO of Qooco, adding “Qooco’s solutions can easily be scaled, so you get the same high-quality, hospitality-focused language training across all hotels, removing the uneven teaching that often results from classroom-based learning. 

This will result in higher Mandarin and English proficiency among their teams, a vital ability given China’s continued dominance of the global travel market – Chinese tourists spent US$261 billion globally last year – more than any other country[1]. PHM Hospitality are right to equip their employees with Mandarin skills, and the results will be better quality service, higher guest satisfaction and a better bottom line.”

Qooco’s mobile learning platforms that PHM Hospitality will have access to are tailor-made for the hospitality industry, and feature sophisticated speech recognition technology that is able to deliver improved and more consistent results than traditional forms of classroom-based learning. The mobile learning courses are used in over 150 luxury hotels worldwide, and are designed specifically to address the rigorous service and delivery standards expected in high-end hotels, resorts and boutique properties.

PHM Hospitality will leverage two of Qooco’s range of mobile learning solutions: Qooco Core teaches employees the most commonly spoken hospitality phrases used in English and Mandarin Chinese, allowing those new to English and Mandarin to learn the most important phrases that help with their everyday work life. Qooco Voice improves spoken English and Mandarin through interactive and continuous learning based on real life situations in Front Office, Food & Beverage, Kitchen, Housekeeping, Spa & Fitness, Security, Sales & Marketing and Engineering Department.

“We place learning and development at the core of our employee strategy, and seek to ensure all our associates are constantly growing and improving their skillset – vital in today’s fast-moving tourism and hospitality environment” says Bu Nur Enddin Destiyani, Corporate Director of Human Resources at PHM Hospitality, adding “Mobile learning makes a huge amount of sense for this reason. We are able to train our employees in language skills in a standardised manner across all of our properties – from Jakarta to Bali, Bandung to Yogyakarta – ensuring they are able to serve their guests in English or Mandarin to a higher level of quality.”

Qooco Core and Qooco Voice will allow PHM Hospitality employees to learn via their smartphones, anytime, anywhere. Each platform has a dashboard and comprehensive reporting that allows training managers to monitor performance, and provide further guidance when and where necessary. With this real-time data and insights, hotel managers and brand leadership are able to evaluate training on an individual, departmental and property level, making the cross-pollination of talent easier.
