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.

Is well suited for a lot of scenarios, from a university to a big company. As is software for challenges and rewards there is a possibility for every type of client. It could be also suitable for businesses like restaurants, bars or even parking companies. This gamification software gives clients a lot of freedom, so everyone can implement it.

It would be great if we could include the manager and the GM as well. Now I just forward the message to the others.

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 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.

Gametize is way more friendly with the users, there are a lot of templates and ways to implement characteristics of other games and challenges to your own activities. Is very efficient with customer service and even if it's a little pricey there are softwares for gamification that cost even more.
