Likelihood to Recommend

Fond

Fond is a great way to incentivize your sales team during contests and rewards for top performers. Also, a great way to incentivize your partners such as referral sources and clients. I can’t think of anything where it’s not really appropriate as an offering. Great offering for employee vacation perks.

TINYpulse

Well-suited for companies looking to get better feedback from employees. It's probably perfect for my organization (around 80 employees) because our COO can respond directly to our concerns. It might be less effective for larger organizations, but I can't speak much to that.

Pros

Fond

  • Provides a long list of alternatives that make it easy to use your Fond points for the product/services you truly care about.
  • Very easy to redeem; select what you want to receive, and click redeem with the points/dollars requested. Typically, gift cards are provided within seconds.
  • Regularly rotate offerings so that you have many options throughout the year.

TINYpulse

  • TINYpulse provides a nice, prepackaged survey platform with a library of suggested questions to use and hard-coded timelines and processes... so it is truly a "plug and play" tool.
  • The platform produces some graphics and other methodology for assisting HR in delivering survey results to the rest of the executive team and/or to share with employees.
  • TINYpulse does a DYNAMIC job in selling the message that the employee's responses are anonymous. Not sure if it is a generational issue or the result of younger generations watching a parent go thru a RIF or other job elimination, but the notion of radically-candid feedback is not one which I've found to be present with many Millennials (here or in past organizations), so this is a big selling point for TINYpulse.
  • The TINYpulse platform offers a "Cheers for Peers" program, allowing the company to promote another form of peer-to-peer recognition which can even be linked to Slack (or nearly any business-based instant messaging system) to create a constant feed for all to see those receiving recognition for going above-and-beyond.

Cons

Fond

  • When first trying to select a gift card, I'd get an occasional error message, but other than that, it was pretty easy to use.
  • Getting more widespread with the types of awards that users can redeem is always a plus!
  • This may have changed since I last used Fond, but last time I tried using the system, the total points you had were tucked away in a somewhat obscure location.

TINYpulse

  • TINYpulse sometimes makes updates to their app and website, and when navigating as an admin, I have found some of the links to be broken after an update.
  • The pricing structure of TINYpulse has changed since we first began using it, changing from a pay per user amount to a bulk-buy amount. This led to some confusion when we went to add more users.

Self explanatory and easy to use. Email notifications help to remind users what they have to do. Very simple and straightforward user interface.

Alternatives Considered

Fond

We have not tested other products that offer such a way to award our employees for doing a fantastic job. Fond has been helping with all the necessary situations and the costs have been quite low. We have not looked into other products. I would recommend going with Fond because we have not found any quality issues with their service.

TINYpulse

TINYpulse provided the most-competitive pricing of all vendors considered, with the greatest flexibility of use with desktop, mobile app, and operating system. While customer support proposed by others appeared to be closer to "live" or real-time, with closer to the 24/7 kind of environment in which we live/work in today, budget was a driving factor for us.

TINYpulse

  • It's an easy way to get feedback and suggestions. I think it contributes to the team culture of wanting to always question and improve.
  • It's an easy way to build rapport among teammates and I think contributes to overall sense of team building (especially for a dispersed team).
  • It's an easy way to keep your finger on the overall pulse of the team and allows management to be able to quickly address any frustrations or issues before they become bigger concerns.
