I was slightly confused by the combine gifts function - I wasn't sure what was combined and what was not (first time I used that function).

Incentives Made Easy

Reviewed a year ago

The backed offers reports that makes keeping track of taxable commission for employees, all the tracking is done for you automatically. Can't go wrong there. The best part though, is probably how it works with our incentive structure. Before Guusto, we had actual physical gift cards, and the type of card would rotate week over week. With Guusto, its up to the user where they'd like to spend their money. Tracking gift cards we give employees as incentive has never been easier thanks to Guusto.

Pros

Guusto has radically improved how MSi - OBTM incentives operate. The options available to our employees are always growing and the APP makes for redeeming those rewards in store a breeze. On the backed, Guusto's solution to reporting has made keeping track of funds extremely easy and the customer service is great! If you ever have a problem customer service is there to help you right away. It has a very personal feeling when you are interacting with their support team.

Cons

Honestly I can't think of something I'd say I dislike, any issues I have come down to using Internet Explorer. Those issues are still very minor and rare! Guusto is an extremely flexible service and I'm sure that if I wasn't using Internet Explorer the few bugs I've encountered wouldn't be there.

Opinion of a Frequent recipient of Guusto rewards for work recognition of meeting or exceeding goals

Reviewed a month ago

Guusto is much better than how I used to award employees when a district manager about 7 years ago and had to visit stores to purchase gift cards and expense them. This is a much better, tidier system with better accountability and proper stewardship of company funds. As a frequent recipient of guusto awards/gifts, I'm able to find something I can readily use and enjoy from the many offerings, but it's not overloaded that making decisions is not overwhelming.

Pros

The product is easy to use, to select appropriate $ items associated with alloted price-point. It's quick, and there's a good selection of products, most of which I can use in an area within 50 miles or less

Cons

Keeping track of what was used and thinking I'd had not used an ecard, when I already had. The USED selector allows me to track that better with a few clicks and recorded history of my awards/gifts.

Easy to learn, simple choice

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

The free account makes the process of learning the app real easy. The fact you feel helping the environment with the One Drop Foundation its a high point up.

Cons

They should improve the global access of the app, Spanish language and support its really needed.
