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.

Staffbase GmbH
Staffbase is well-suited for companies who want to drive and measure employee engagement through meaningful content. I wouldn't recommend it for companies that maintain a complex SharePoint environment with years of legacy content. It is not intended to be a CMS system. It is a dynamic platform that makes it's easy to share information through the mobile or desktop app and email and push notifications. You don't need a large team to manage it.

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

Staffbase GmbH
Since we selected Staffbase, they are one of a few companies that haven't been acquired or changed its business model. We would have invested a lot of time and money rebuilding our intranet otherwise. We selected them because of the standard features included, the free updates, and the reasonable licensing fees. They understand the value of communicating with non-desk employees and keeping them engaged.

Return on Investment
Rybbon
  • 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
