Awardco

Awardco has something for everyone. I have employees in a variety of age groups and some want to travel, some want a tangible item, and others feel like they don't really need/want anything so they choose a gift card so they can use it how and when they choose. Awardco allows that flexibility. Also, if the individual isn't ready to make a selection right away, they can save their points to use at a later time. If an individual would like to select an item larger than their award amount, they are not able to add dollars to their personal account, which may cause some frustration to an individual.

Bonusly

Bonusly can be a game changer for fostering a culture of appreciation and engagement amongst staff. It speaks especially well to the younger generation, but even our more senior staff seem to love it to. I could see it being a little more difficult to use in industries in which technology use was not part of the day to day work, as you do need to either pull the app up or look at your email to know if someone sent you Bonusly points and recognition. In any office setting, education, healthcare, technology, or other industry though that includes an email or computer component, Bonusly ties seamlessly into the day and I have yet to find a place that has implemented it who hasn’t loved it

Pros

Awardco

  • Every employee has an account.
  • There are multiple ways to use your points.
  • All points are stored in one place & easy to find.
Marquis C. Brantley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bonusly

  • Prize selection, a wide variety of gift card, charity, and even PayPal cash payout options.
  • Prize reclamation/flow of money in, and points out. Most other systems are not nearly as hands-free as this. People are able to claim everything with zero approval/foot-work from your HR/Admin team. No prize book to maintain, no trips to the gas station to buy gift cards. It's just smooth.
  • Freedom to post however/whatever you like in the open-ended timeline/social media-esk posting feature.

Cons

Awardco

  • I would like the system to be able to send email notifications to more than the employee and the HR Manager. It would be great if we could include the manager and the GM as well. Now I just forward the message to the others.

Additional Pricing Details
Awardco Enterprise is priced fairly depending on your recognition program needs, and is often much lower than the industry standard. Our previous customers have found that they can use a portion of their previous recognition budget to implement and utilize Awardco, and the rest of the funds can be directed immediately back to their employees, thus rewarding them even more than before.

Support Rating

Awardco

Awardco 7.5
Based on 2 answers
I am giving a "middle of the road" rating of 5 because I don't have experience with Awardco support. I have never had to reach out to the support team for anything, so I don't have any substantial feedback in this particular area. The program is so easy to use, so I've never needed to contact the support team.

I never had any issues with support. It's especially nice to be able to add location-specific rewards.

Alternatives Considered

Awardco

I have only used a few other award programs and selections have been extremely limited. There is nothing worse than receiving a catalog with 10-15 items to choose from and you don't really want any of the items. It is even worse when the company spends two to three times the cost on a gift that can be purchased elsewhere for much, much less. The employee has an idea how much something costs and as a result feels like the company didn't appreciate them by giving an inexpensive gift. Awardco gifts are dollar for dollar.

Bonusly

Bonusly builds a recognition-rich culture like no other reward and recognition software by empowering everyone to recognize their peers, direct reports, and managers. With nifty features and a simple interface, Bonusly is fun and intuitive to use and employees tend to adopt quickly and use it frequently. It is definitely a game-changer.

Return on Investment

Awardco

  • We are a company that thrives on competition & rewards. Awardco has helped us simplify that rewards process, and it's much easier for us as we create competition prizes.
  • Our employees are much more engaged in the competitions because they know they will win points that can be used on just about anything.
  • Since we've started using Awardco we have hit record numbers in sales in a month.
Marquis C. Brantley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bonusly

  • For the majority of months over the past year months, over 95% of our active employees receive Bonusly points from at least one coworker each month, increasing the opportunities to feel appreciated for the hard work they do.
  • More than 50% of Bonusly points and appreciation that are given by one employee are "added onto" by another employee, showing that the staff really do read through the great things others are doing and thus prompt one another to celebrate as well.
