Award-Winning Platform Boosts Staff Satisfaction, Productivity and Galvanises Sales

Appreciate Business Services (ABS) – The home of Love2shop – have officially launched a ‘game-changer’ modular engagement platform for UK businesses looking to boost productivity, motivation and employee/customer satisfaction.  

The dynamic Appreciate Engagement Platform which has already scooped two top prizes at the prestigious Incentive Awards is now available as a modular, off-the-shelf product.

Totally customisable to each organisation’s requirements and budget, the ‘Appreciate Engagement Platform’ is now fully launched and available for demonstration, providing every core module that most organisations need to manage a successful incentive, loyalty or recognition scheme.

In the recent major Appreciate Employee Value Report. 2022, a third (10 million) UK employees revealed they feel undervalued in the workplace, making the need for an effective engagement platform more crucial than ever, especially during the present ‘cost of living crisis’.

A host of business and organisations  have already taken advantage of the high level initial roll-out including finance, health, construction, hospitality, HR, IT, telecoms, retail and the motor industry sectors.

The official release this month of the fully modular version allows clients to immediately access their engagement platform with online training provided by the in-house team at ABS.

Given the instant readiness – with no need to develop the build – each modular platform is easily integrated into current office systems, saving users valuable time.

Crucially, due to its versatility, the system is more affordable than a bespoke platform – making it a great value resource and hugely beneficial tool for boosting businesses faced with the cost of living crisis.

Frank Creighton, Director of Business Development, Appreciate Business Services, said: “We’re confident that all sectors who embrace this dynamic technology will recognise how they can access high quality results, adding significant value to their incentive, loyalty and recognition strategies.”

Jamie Clarke, Head of Engagement Platform Services, Appreciate Business Services, who spearheaded the tech development, added: “A number of design features make Appreciate Engagement Platform stand out. New customers will enjoy a competitive, fully integrated and affordable platform.

“Out of the box, the new platform requires no development, but it still delivers the same quality of modules and time-saving processes as many of our bespoke programs. However, because it’s more accessible, large-scale and smaller businesses will enjoy an excellent return on investment.”

The Appreciate Engagement Platform won the ‘Best Channel Partner Programme’ award 2021 with a bespoke campaign called ‘Help for Hospitality’ in recognition for the growth it helped to galvanise for leading hospitality client, Brakes.

The engagement program designed and delivered by ABS for Brakes was a combination of off-the-shelf functionality with some bespoke developed modules, which helped the hospitality market leader achieve unprecedented results:

  • The 20% of Brakes customers who engaged in the Help for Hospitality scheme generated more than 60% of Brakes’ sales revenue during the promoted period.
  • Of the customers engaged in Help for Hospitality, 10% of the spend was recorded in new Brakes categories – where customers have not previously traded.
  • 7,944 Brakes customers engaged with the Help for Hospitality promotion, a 61% increase in participation on previous promotions.

Adam Haywood, Commercial Marketing at Brakes said: “Help for Hospitality has been phenomenal, and went down a storm in the hospitality sector. Our channel programme with Appreciate has also been a financial success, returning excellent figures over our investment.”

To find out more about the further platform developments, features and modular options, ABS is offering a number of introductory offers and demonstrations to illustrate how the tech can benefit organisations of all sizes.
