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.

We held a balcony decorating contest and residents were rewarded with the ability to quickly and easily select the gift card that best suited their needs. I was awarded a gift card for performance at work and was to access the reward quickly. In both cases, it was easy and seamless for both sender and receiver.

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.

Support Rating
Awardco
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.

Ease of setup and use is the first and foremost thing that appealed to us to use Guusto. Employees had to sign up for Guusto which was a smooth process. Then the wide variety of Gift card selections played another key role in choosing Guusto over the other vendor. Smooth transitioning and setting up with our organization are the key benefits which helped us choose Guusto.

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.

  • You can charge up your account for future use which is very handy, but if you're charging from a credit card, you'll want to load over $500 to avoid fees.
