Digital Garage, Inc. (TSE first section: 4819; HQ: Tokyo; Representative Director, President Executive Officer and Group CEO: Kaoru Hayashi; DG) starts to provide the member preferential shopping site "JR KYUPO Point Mall" from Tuesday, March 27, 2018 to JR Kyushu web members* owned by Kyushu Railway Company (TSE first section 9142; HQ: Fukuoka; President: Toshihiko Aoyagi; JR Kyushu).
JR Kyushu had developed three point services "e rail point", "JQ point" and "SUGOCA Point", but since July 2017 they merged them into "JR KYUPO". Enhancing the convenience of the JR Kyushu web members this time, DG and JR Kyushu have started to offer "JR KYUPO Point Mall". When a member purchases goods and services at more than 500 EC shops in the point mall, he can accumulate "JR KYUPO" points in addition to predetermined points of EC shop according to the purchase price. The accumulated points can be exchanged for charging to "SUGOCA" and partner's point service, etc. Through the point mall, we will expand the distribution volume of "JR KYUPO" and revitalize communication with JR Kyushu web members.
DG has been working on the point mall's site construction and operation for over 10 years. There are proven track records of introducing to more than 20 companies, including major credit card companies, and DG's cumulative annual circulation amount of the whole point mall is about 100 billion yen. Thus, as the industry leader, DG supports marketing activities that enhance the engagement of members owned by companies. DG will utilize the extensive know-how on effective point malls to consistently build and operate the site of "JR KYUPO Point Mall" and contribute to the expansion of use of "JR KYUPO".
Going forward, DG and JR Kyushu intend to maximize the distribution of JR KYUPO and strengthen cooperation to make it more convenient and affordable for all members.
