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.

Vantage Circle

Sometimes they don't clearly lay out the point rates; rather, you will have to look into it. So at times you might feel disappointed with the points system. Vantage Circle is also less appropriate as a mobile application because many of the times my orders were not traced and consequently no points were credited. Also one time I clicked on a, offer and it was not suited for me, but I was still being contacted by the vendors regarding that offer. The last thing I would suggest is to categorize the offers based on interests.

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.

Vantage Circle

  • Adding a photo of the activity that was carried.
  • More details on the offers that are offered for different purchases made on the shopping websites.
  • Referral process can be improved wherein a employee gets a small token a gift to add on his company colleague onto the platform.
  • Vantage Fit should be merged with the platform for employees ease.
  • HR policies and the required documents can be accessed through the app, by some or the other way. So that employees keep visiting the app and can get to know more about the features it has to offer.
  • Access to interact with individual colleague, just to increase one's circle and have cross functional engagement.

Awardco 8.3
Based on 3 answers
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.

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.

Vantage Circle

Vantage Circle has a greater variety of coupons available as compared to the Kudos. Also it is more accessible in terms of use. The extension feature, which automatically tracks orders, is very handy. I don't have to worry about it anymore. But one area where Kudos wins is the vouchers. Vantage Circle's are very limited.

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.
