"Consumers demand a trifecta: credibility, reliability, and convenience in every purchase,” said Prabhu Ram, Head-Industry Intelligence Group at CMR.
The 'Alpha Brands' have arrived on the basis of their performance across major components, including brand's users, key decision makers, Net promoter score (NPS) score, level of satisfaction and the overall brand trust quotient.
"Convenience coupled with trust is not just a winning formula; it's the lifeline of modern businesses," said Sugandha Srivastava, Senior Manager-Industry Consulting Group at CMR.
"Mobile app-based brands have rewritten the narrative, reshaping how consumers perceive and interact with products and services,” Srivastava added.
