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.

Rybbon

I think Rybbon is a very good choice for a UX or Market research team. It's generally easy to use, easy to send gifts to almost any country, and their customer support is great. The only real weakness is in the reporting and dashboard. You'll have to do pretty much all of it in Excel. So unless that's very important to you, I can't really think of a better option than Rybbon.

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.

  • The main dashboard is not very useful for tracking your activity and spending
  • Website didn't seem super reliable. Would see downtime occasionally.
  • You can export reports to Excel but better built in reporting would be nice

Additional 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

    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.

    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.

    Both are good products, I honestly have no complaints with either of them. Rybbon's integration with Qualtrics is a definite plus.

    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.

    • Using the paid plan where you pre-pay fees up front definitely saved us money in the long run
    • It's a lot quicker and more manageable than using PayPal or Amazon gift cards
    • Their support team has probably also saved us time by helping recipients who have trouble redeeming cards instead of us having to do it
