2. Reward Redemption & Distribution Capabilities
For admins such as HRs, sales leaders, customer success heads, etc looking to distribute rewards seamlessly and on the go, Plum offers the ability to distribute rewards via multiple channels. Apt for distributing en masse, Rewards can be sent to users via reward points, reward codes, reward links, and QR codes* for staff to redeem in the Plum Storefront.
Xoxo points can be used by HR managers or CXO’s of a company to distribute gifts and incentivize their employees, stakeholders, or channel partners. Points that were distributed can be used by the recipients on the Plum Storefront. These points are accumulated in the user account and they can redeem them as they deem fit.
Xoxo Codes are unique gift codes that can be sent individually or in bulk to end-users. Admins can create these codes in any denomination and currency. Employees can use multiple codes in a single purchase/multiple purchases as per their convenience.
Xoxo Link is a unique link that lets recipients choose the reward of their choice with a single click. Admins can distribute the rewards via email, SMS, and QR codes. Organizations only have to pay for the rewards that are redeemed via Xoxo links.
