transcosmos customer case study (English translation coming soon):

Meiji Seika Pharma has been exploring the possibility of launching a new D2C business with “meiQua,” its supplement brand that brings together the Meiji Group’s expertise in food and pharmaceuticals, which is designed specifically for medical institutions. Given that the supplements are only accessible for customers who have been referred to by medical institutions, the company must build a special sales scheme to link customers with medical institutions, create services convenient for customers, and connect the website to associated systems to make it happen.

Receiving the request by Meiji Seika Pharma, transcosmos helped Meiji Seika Pharma deliver its first D2C business with a focus on the following factors backed by its proven record in offering one-stop services for the D2C business, and in particular its achievements in supporting e-commerce businesses in the pharmaceutical industry.

(1) Develop a proprietary scheme using the medical institution code to ensure a closed-market that is only accessible to customers with a medical institutions’ referral. In parallel, build a system that can confirm sales generated from customers with a referral by medical institutions.

(2) Create trustworthy UI/UX designs that fit the product feature – medical institution only – and build the website with Shopify themes and apps.

(3) Building on its successes in offering one-stop services, deliver one-stop services from designing and building to operating business processes specifically for this unique scheme. The services cover the entire e-commerce business process from site operations such as site management and updates, sales management, shipping and receiving, logistics management such as product returns and replacement, to customer services via emails and calls.

● Comment from Meiji Seika Pharma Co., Ltd.

Launching an e-commerce site for the D2C field was challenging as it was our first attempt to go into the field, and so we did not have sufficient resources and knowledge for the business.

transcosmos not only helped us build the e-commerce site, but they have also continued to offer a wide range of services after the launch including site operations, back-office, contact centers, and logistics. Given its abundant achievements in the pharmaceutical industry and being a Shopify Plus Partner – the top rank partner – transcosmos is a reliable company and we have no concerns at all in asking transcosmos for its services. We appreciate transcosmos’ ongoing support as we continue to run our business that serves medical institutions and patients.
