Xoxoday makes your digital rewards strategy simple. You can power your business results by rewarding customers with gift cards, discounts, experiences, and much more. But providing all these rewards can be a time-consuming process for your business if you have a lot of rewards to send.

Different businesses have different use cases for rewards and incentives. Let’s discuss some of these use cases below:

  1. There is a business case where the customer is already having a rewarding use case in its existing application. These can be homegrown custom applications for HR, Sales, Marketing or various other requirements. The company might want to run rewards/incentives on these applications without wanting the users to switch to any other third party application. In such cases, the best way for businesses to enable rewards is through rewards API.
  2. There is a business case where the company is using standard tools like Salesforce, SAP, Qualtrics, Hubspot, etc for their sales, HR, Marketing use cases. In such a case, companies can use Plum native reward integrations with these applications to enable rewarding.
  3. There is another use case where the company does not use any application but still wants to send rewards to its employees, channel partners or sales teams. In such cases, they can use Plum rewarding applications which come with a full suite of features to enable different types of rewards.
