Incentive tracking is a crucial step in running an incentive program. Unless participants know how well they are progressing toward their goal, they have no opportunity to increase their performance. Incentivize your team using challenges, leaderboards, dynamic notifications, and instant recognition to create a high-performance culture. Or simply reward one or thousands of employees with points to redeem for digital gift cards or any gift you want.

Yesimo's incentive and rewards platform will help your team achieve stellar results through awareness, communication and rewards. Leader boards, progress bars, badges, and dynamic notifications ensure participants can track where they stack against others at all times. You decide how many points participants receive every time they exceed a target. Participants use those points in exchange for gifts that you select from Yesimo's online catalog. Choose from a wide selection of gift cards or gifts to reward your teams.
