Pros

Whilst it seems simple, there's been so much thought put into the interface and functionality - we love it.

A reporting feature would be useful so that the content could be extracted to report back to senior management

Stan James

A fabulous business tool and one we could not do our daily business without now.

2018-07-06

Its a necessary business tool which links our values to our behaviours and measures the success of our organisation in living these.

Pros

Its ease of use along with the support we get from Thanksbox. I really like the fact that the recognition can be linked or not to the reward system. Just a great business tool.

Cons

I could not fault it in any way. Every time we have had an opportunity to improve it 'Thanksbox' are right there beside us to make the upgrade.

It's a great way to recognise and reward my team and you can do that anytime anywhere.

2018-06-25

It's a great way to recognise and reward my team and you can do that anytime anywhere.

Pros

I can recognise and reward my team from wherever and whenever. I don't always get to catch people to thank them because my day can get hectic, and this gives a chance to reflect on the day and thank people for giving their all.

Cons

Nothing really, I am waiting for the GIFs to be added to the massages. It's easy to use and reliable.

Kirsty Golder

We have recently introduced ThanksBox and it has been incredibly well received by all staff.

2017-06-07

Pros

We really like how user friendly it is, and it really does encourage the sort of culture we are aiming to create. All staff members have become engaged in using the software from the word go and it has quickly become a very useful tool for us to have. The ideas sharing function is great to make all staff feel like they have a voice and can make suggestions.

Cons

We can't fault it, it has been so easy to implement with great support from the ThanksBox guys and we are really enjoying using it.

Easy to use and provides a qucik response

2018-07-13

The quick and easy way you can offer praise and recognition to colleagues for a job well done

Pros

The option of just typing a name and choosing from drop down boxes makes the use of the Thanksbox quick and easy

Cons

Not sure where the issue sits whether this is with Horwich Farrelly but the platform stability as on occassions you have to log out and start over. Sometimes I experience difficulties logging in when the start process just continues to circle around and you have to close all systems and start again. This also does not always sole the problem

the best way to motivate people

2017-01-18

They made such a thing which you can motivate people with. I use it in my team in a nonprofit association and they love it. The ThanksBox's team is really friendly so I can only recommend it. :)

Pros

Easy to use and to understand how it works.

Some people think that it's better to say thanks in real life, but you can do both together I think so. :)

2018-07-10

Pros

Each enviroment within the application is clear and easy to use.

Cons

I dont necessarly have cons, but it would be great to get a Thankbox button installed onto our hotel team Facebook private group (and vice versa) This would help bring our communication and reward tools together.

Easy to use, easy to implement, great support from a passionate team. It does what it says it does!

2017-05-31

Pros

ThanksBox is simple and easy to use, even for those of us (i.e. me) who are digitally challenged!

Cons

Initially we didn't use a modern enough web browser so the ThanksBox team had to make all sorts of adjustments to make it work for us. Since implementation the organisation's IT dept has upgraded the web browser for all users which has addressed the issue some users had when trying to open the software.
