The New RewardTrax Leaderboard

The ISI group is proud to announce the new addition of the leaderboard module to our RewardTrax incentive marketing platform. Beginning July 1st you’ll be able to plug in any numbers you like and have them show up as a leaderboard for your incentive, recognition or loyalty program.

Gamification, or turning any activity or program into a game/competition by using a leaderboard, is one of the easiest ways to encourage participation and competition amongst your participants. It’s a quick and easy way to inspire engagement and participation in your program. It’s especially useful with sales people and the sales incentive programs they’re in because they’re fiercely competitive by nature.

The RewardTrax leaderboard module allows a data upload in the form of a spreadsheet into the reward system. Upon login, your participants will see where they stand as well as their team mates in terms of program metrics. Contact your account manager for more information.

On Sale Rewards

Starting July 1st on sale rewards items will now be available in the reward catalog. Your participants will be able to log in, click on shopping, then click the “On Sale Now!” tab, and see exactly which items they can save some points on! It’s easy. All items that are on sale will also be flagged as being on sale throughout the catalog.
Giving your participants ways to make their points worth more will only increase their engagement in your program, and thus cause them to complete more company objectives and earn your company more money. Your productivity and morale will go up since your participants’ points will go further , and your program, and your business, will enjoy more success as a result of it.

New Engagement Reporting

We know how important data is when deciding which promotions are successful, which aren’t, and what kind of ROI your program is producing.

To add to your reporting capabilities, we’ve launched a new level of engagement reporting that lets you filter the level of engagement your participants have with your reward program. This new reporting will categorize your participants into six different groups depending on their activity in your incentive program. Here are the different groups based on the participant’s activation status and their award activity and login activity over the previous 12 months:

  • Group 1 – Invited
  • Group 2 – New Enrollee
  • Group 3 – Not Engaged
  • Group 4 – Low engagement
  • Group 5 – Mid engagement
  • Group 6 – High Engagement

We’re hoping this new functionality will allow you to further concentrate your marketing efforts toward engaging all participants into your program, thus increasing your ROI. Call your account manager for more information.
