In addition to comparing these two platforms in the size of the gifting catalogs they offer, we will also consider different aspects such as the tech capabilities, the number of tools they integrate with, and the support they provide to their customers and patrons.
By simplifying the rewarding process for businesses, Plum makes rewards delightful for the end-users. Plum Rewards provide value at every step, starting from defining behavior triggers to enabling action to make results happen.
On the other hand, Tremendous is a bulk gifting platform that helps deliver rewards via email, SMS, and APIs.
We will be differentiating them by distinct criteria and see how they stack up.

There are more than 5000 handpicked experiences and travel options across the globe for folks who are into travel.
Upcoming features to the Storefront in the next five months of 2021 include fintech, merchandise, new gift card APIs, wellness initiatives, and cashbacks. End-users can also access consumer promotions such as lucky draw, spin wheel, etc.
On the other hand, Tremendous only contains 1800+ gift card options and lacks features such as experiences, perks, merchandise, and wellness initiatives. Tremendous also lacks the number of reward categories that Plum possesses.

With a vast global catalog spanning 21,000+ reward options across several categories, Xoxday’s Plum outclasses Tremendous when it comes to the size of the reward catalog.
2. Reward Redemption & Distribution Capabilities
With omnichannel distribution capability for admins like HRs, sales leaders, etc., looking to distribute rewards seamlessly, Plum is apt for bulk rewarding.
Admins can distribute incentives to end-users via reward points, reward codes, reward links, API, and QR codes* for staff to redeem in the Storefront.
Reward points, known as Xoxo points, can be used by HR heads, Researchers, CXO or admins of a company to distribute rewards to their employees, stakeholders, survey respondents, or channel partners. These points are accumulated on the user’s account, after which they can use these distributed points on the Plum Storefront.
Reward codes, referred to as Xoxo Codes, can be sent individually or in bulk to end-users. These codes can be created in the denomination and currency that an admin wishes. End-users can use several codes in a single purchase/multiple purchases as per their convenience.
Links, referred to as Xoxo Links are unique links that let recipients choose the gift of their choice with a single click. Admins can choose to distribute incentives via email, SMS, and distribute the rewards via email, SMS, and QR codes. Organizations only have to pay for the rewards that are redeemed via Xoxo links.
For organizations wishing to send gift card vouchers in bulk, Admins can use Plum Rewards API too.
Tremendous API response, when compared to the former, is more complex. It also requires a significant amount of effort to master.
Plum, on the other hand, provides a seamless experience and is far easier to integrate. Users who use Plum Rewards API can also get specific vouchers from the Plum Catalog using filters such as country, category, etc.
With the ability to send rewards across channels, Xoxoday’s Plum outmatches Tremendous when it comes to distribution capabilities.

3. Platform Experience & Technology
Built on a robust tech stack with complete microservices architecture, Plum is compliant with the latest security standards, including GDPR and SOC-2.
The UI/UX is smooth and works across devices seamlessly. Plum also provides advanced analytics for admins on reward redemption usage as a completely DIY solution and allows custom branding.
Plum is not only a tool for admin functions but is built keeping the end-users in mind. We regularly iterate our product every 45 days by listening to feedback from admins and storefront users.

As an admin, you will also be able to see the rewards that were sent, received, redeemed, etc., in a single dashboard and get a bird’s eye view of how Plum is impacting your business objectives. In addition to that, we have a scheduler option that admins can use to automate birthdays, and anniversaries rewarding.
Admins can efficiently perform customizations with Plum. Organizations can have custom brandings such as landing pages, and logos and use their email templates. Personalization of gift cards, greetings, images, emails, and messages is possible for special occasions. It is also possible for admins to create custom landing pages/URLs/Micro-sites. Admins can also choose to brand packing and delivery services.
On the other hand, Tremendous offers limited customization doesn’t have campaign automation and has limited functionality when it comes to analytics.
Another major differentiation between the two platforms is that the real-time bulk upload status is shown in Plum, whereas in Tremendous, this feature is absent.
