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.

Jive

It's definitely worth considering Jive for the type of application we've developed i.e. a central shared repository for all employees to host and discuss information. I can't say I have ever used a superior tool, but they may exist. I'm just not sure I would want to use it exclusively for file hosting, though. It does integrate with various other tools, so perhaps it would be fine if used in conjunction with another tool for that purpose.

Pros

Awardco

  • Allows users to save rewards they're interested in.
  • Notifies you when your item has been shipped and keeps you up to date on location.
  • Diversity of awards available.

Jive

  • Individual design
  • Presence of Russian language (localization can be independently established)
  • You can configure several information tapes with different themes. One for work, the second for communication
  • A newly-arrived network user immediately receives a prepared block for beginners. After completing several game tasks, the user will receive the basics of using Jive.
  • There is a template for each scenario. There is even a template for planning R&D, and there are more than twenty of them.
  • Integrates with MS Office, Google Drive, Google Docs
  • There are all platforms (even Winphone and blackberry)
  • You can create forum threads

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.

Jive

  • Search functionality is very weak
  • The information architecture and taxonomy doesnt allow for easy discoverability of content
  • It's hard to navigate the and find spaces/groups that I already know about
  • The main profile/interface does not allow easy access to key tasks or common tasks.

There are always external factors that can impact this decision but currently, the Jive platform is maintaining its lead in the market place in this area. If the innovation in this space by Jive continues, then this number will remain high. Integration with other systems and adaptability to changes in the market or in client needs will also make this decision hard to predict more then 6 months into the future

It was harder to use that expected. The admin needs to be code savvy to truly customize the system. And users need to trained on the system and the setup. Trainings and monitoring need to continue to enforce use.

Uptime was OK. But there was one day that the system crashed for a whole day. Our company was unable to operate. And all the plugins to word/excel froze causing those systems to freeze.

Jive posted a statement to the media saying all customers were up, but we were not.

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.

They did an OK job when I needed them. Except for the one day the system went down. Jive pointed the finger at the hosting company, and the hosting company pointed the finger at Jive. No reliable information came to us.

Jive online training is there. It is OK/average. I feel some other companies are doing better. It is not a piece that is required to have a successfully implementation, but it could be useful to improve it

If I did this over, I would hire out the implementation. They know the best practices and could have guided us to make an easier to use setup.

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.

Jive

Jive and IBM/HCL Connections have very similar features, but Jive has a much much better UI/UX compared to IBM/HCL Connections (which is horrendous). The usability factor alone was enough to tip the choice in Jive's favor. When compared with Atlassian Confluence, it came down to a toss-up between target user audience. Out of the box, Jive is more tailored to ordinary users that may not be tech-savvy, while Confluence being highly customizable and extensible, demands more from its users.

Return on Investment

Awardco

  • Has fixed the employee complaint of more award diversity.
  • Has allowed for HR to award year of service awards virtually.
Barbara Slay | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jive

  • Makes us seem bigger than we are.
  • Makes it so the person that manages this part of the business can go on vacation and can pass on these duties to other people when he is gone.
  • Helped us fulfill MSA requirements from our clients to have phone support. Couldn’t have closed some of our deals without it.

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.
