The cumbersome award application process as well as the following judging process has added so much value to our organization and smoothen our award operations. Award program setting up has been never easy like this. We can easily review and run the nomination reports now. Streamline our Award process via AF has been a lifesaver.
  • Ability to evaluate the applications within the app by judges.
  • Can create my questionnaires and categorize them automatically.
  • Assign judges easily
  • Provide help to the submissions.
  • Provide a smooth learning curve for the new users (As judges differ always)
  • Emails sent from the software lands in Spam sometimes
  • The product tends to lag if we are running many tasks at once.
  • Limited in-app reporting view.
When we run a series of award program with different set of judges in rounds, we have had the best use of AF. It is highly competent in processing the applications specially as our number of applicants are over 2000. Therefore, we have been able to streamline the entire award process and reduce the margin of error and very transparent and efficient judging criterias implemented.
  • Pre-configured award setups.
  • Assign custom judges based on the award program
  • Capacity to re-submit incomplete applications.
  • Huge cost saving on paper usage. Cost reduction almost by 90%
  • Transparency in judging process.
  • Time to judge and evaluate the programs gone down by 60%.
The customer support team was outstanding in AF. They were very attentive and on point in our requirements. Also the pricing was very affordable. We had few recommendations from existing users who were already in our business market.

The product is comprehensive and this helps in tracking and indulging investors and startup applications. The support team is very helpful in any issues we face. Their product knowledge is impressive and this helps us in less downtime and more productivity.
  • User friendly User Interface
  • Data Protection
  • Reasonable pricing
  • Extra details are missing in fact sheets.
  • As a first time user, setup is time consuming and need help from support regularly.
  • Apart from this I have not encountered any downside with Award Force till now.
Award Force integrates API and SSO integration which is a plus and the dashboard and reporting is very intuitive. Good sense of security, prevention of spam and data protection, these features are what an organization looks for and Award Force seamlessly provides them. The capability to broadcast the emails and do so by the status of the submission.
  • Integrating awards with other vast applications.
  • API and SSO integration.
  • Assessment Management.
  • Immense forward increase in ROI.
  • Increase in participation and hence more productivity.
  • No dependency on separate vendors for different features and cutting cost.
