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.

Hands down this tool nails what it sets out to do. If what you need is a no-fuss method of allowing employees to build each other up that is a completely self-reliant system that only requires your predictable capital investment: there is no better. There are more feature-rich tools so there are plenty of cases where it may make sense to opt for a more robust system. I think small and large teams benefit the most from a platform like this. Small teams where every minute of admin time is precious. Or big teams where complexity can become an issue, or said large teams that are looking for a supplemental system to their current bonus/employee recognition programs.

Cons

Awardco

  • I would love if I could award points as a manager.
  • Ordering Amazon products directly from the Awardco site does not come with tracking for your items.
  • The products ordered directly from the Awardco site take a really long time to arrive at your home.

Bonusly

  • Moderation. The freedom to post anything for recognition can get out of hand depending on your tolerance/company culture. There are very little to no tools around better this.
  • Bonusly has not done much in the way of adding features. Hard to call it a con but other similar platforms have extended into allowing more directed involvement from the organization. In other words: Bonusly is a little TOO hands-off in some ways.

Someone has always been available when I reach out or they will call me back in less than 24 hours if they aren't available when I call. If I have an urgent need to reach someone, there is always someone who is willing to help in the absence of my primary contact.

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

Alternatives Considered

Awardco

In the past, we have used sites like Coupa to order products & prizes for employees who we want to reward or who have earned prizes during competitions. We enjoyed the program, but there were many steps involved & many layers to go through. It was a time-consuming process to reward an employee, but now we don't spend any time at all on things like this since every employee has their own Awardco account.

Bonusly

The "big name" to me has always been CrewHu. Not sure why they aren't in the listing at the time of this writing but they are far and away the big name from my perspective. This is the main other tool we've seriously considered and I think it highlights the opposite points I've made in the rest of this review. It is much larger in scope involving allowing your clients to participate, among many other smaller tools/features that Bonusly does not have. Conversely, it's a beast; the tool needs regular attention and engagement to leverage fully and make the investment cost worthwhile.Bonusly shines through as the simple and straightforward option on the market. There may come a time where we want more and change tools entierly to better fit new business needs. But I can see Bonusly benefiting just about any team, where other tools really require certain scenerios.

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.
