Techarc Unboxing Score Methodology:
Techarc’s unboxing score helps consumer make the right decision driven by an absolute number determining the value of the offering by a brand. The score, driven statistically, indicates the superiority of the offering in terms of features (specifications) it offers at a particular price point. Such evaluation helps smartphone brands to measure how they fair within competition and also gives insights about how the offering can be made competitive to become customer’s choice by seeing maximum value in purchasing a particular product.
A competition zone is defined based on the price of a particular product. All the specifications and sub specifications are compared within the competition zone. The product (model) offering the best among competition defines the benchmark and all others are compared against it. Similarly, the price is also compared. The lowest price in the range becomes the benchmark and others are compared with it. Based on pre-defined weights (which have been defined basis consumer preferences arrived through regular consumer surveys covering over 20,000 respondents in case of smartphones), the final scores are computed summing the individual specification scores and the pricing score. A bar chart is used to show the unboxing score of the device and its competition offerings. The benchmark score of the zone is also determined. This shows whether the smartphone in question is above the benchmark or below it.
