  • Program setup similar with expiring point distributions, except distributions are not based on job titles.
  • Similar implementation and onboarding assistance once you've signed up for a plan.
  • Integration suite is comparable but lacks some of Kudos' options.
  • Features a diverse range of reports, though the graphs and analytics aren't as strong as in Kudos.
  • Lacks Kudos' option for support via chat, but makes up for it with 24-hour phone support availability.

  • Users get an expiring monthly allowance of points to give away, but the allowance amount is given to all users and not controlled by job titles. Unlike Kudos, non-monetary recognition not an option.
  • Similarly clean interface more polished than Kudos and with a smaller learning curve for admins.
  • Gift cards and charities being the main options in the reward catalog make it a direct match to Kudos' catalog.
  • Same suite of integrations, but also features an open API.
  • Same options of email, chat, and phone support, though the help center isn't as comprehensive.

  • Distribution of points to give away is not based on job title, but you can choose the cadence of expiration. Unlike Kudos, non-monetary recognition not available.
  • Onboarding specialist assists with setup and launch, but you get to choose between a few onboarding packages to determine the level of help you receive.
  • User interface feels relatively similar, but is a bit more attractive. Small learning curve like Kudos, but the interfaces manages to juggle its many features well.
  • Integration options match and exceed that of Kudos.
