Pros: We've just recently launched Applauz. I can't give it enough glowing reviews! I presented it to my CEO and COO and they were sold instantly. Administratively its so simple. So many great features. It automates our birthday and anniversary announcements among other amazing things. Our staff gravitate towards the news feed on a daily basis and really appreciate the ability to post and congratulate their colleagues. They also appreciate their POINTS and LOVE the marketplace, with over 2500 items and 250 brands to choose from. We all enjoy our retail therapy!

Congratulations on catering to SMBs and really delivering a quality, high caliber product and service!

Cons: The only suggestions we've had so far is we'd like to see the ability to edit and add pictures to posts. Also we'd like to be able to make "group" posts. However we know they are still new and growing and like any new company they are evolving everyday. Applauz is very receptive to feedback and they are very easy to work with. It's been an absolute pleasure learning about all of their new features as they continue to evolve based on their client feedback.

Pros: It's so easy and it encourages staff engagement to notice each other and the good things happening in our agency not just frontline but behind the scenes.

Cons: I really can't say. If I speak for the agency we have a few people that struggle with technology so they'd have comments about it being online

Also on the recognition part the comment space need to allow for more space

Overall: We are very pleased and after extensive research with many companies I feel we made the best choice we love it!

Applauz enables me to create a culture of recognition

Pros: So many features and functions! Really versatile and easy to use. It's almost as if it makes cleaning my PC fun!

Overall: Easy PC cleaning and maintenance. It's that simple!

Pros: how easy it is to reward points and engage employees.

Cons:

the feature to reward anonymous points, the only way I can figure it out is to hide the recognition in the feed, there should be a keep recognition anonymous so only the employee who receives the reward sees it. some people respond better to silent recognition.

Overall: fantastic, from demo to go live, this has been such a user-friendly experience.

Easy to get up and running, and quick buy-in.

Pros: The fluidity of it and certain parts of its design etc.it is clean and easy to use it works well for what seems like a very intuitive program.

Cons: None that I can think of at this moment but if it's really required I am sure I could come up with something just to fill up this requirement.

Fun to use, but didn't find it to be overly useful for us!

Pros: It's got an excellent user interface and UX design, so it's super easy to jump right in and start using Applauz for your employee recognition programs.

Cons: It's not a knock on the software, but I just didn't find it brought that much value to us as an organization. We went back to our own "old-school" methods of recognizing our employees!

Overall: It gave us interesting ideas, we enjoyed using the software just didn't really fit with out operations.

Easy to use, great solution!
