What is Award Force?

Award Force is an online awards management system offering users tools to manage entries, take payments, promote their awards, and manage judging. Entries can be submitted online 24/7, with continuous auto-save meaning that no work is lost if an entrant loses connection to the website. Users can then review, moderate, track, tag, search, and filter entries in real time. Payment gateway integration allows entrants to pay any entry fees online, and users can set fees and accept payment in multiple currencies, with additional options for variable fees, such as early bird or late entries, offering discount codes, and configuring VAT/GST.

Key benefits of using Award Force

Entries can be submitted online 24/7, with users able to manage, track, tag, search, and filter entries in real time.

Each awards account is given a vanity domain, and users can customize it with their own brand assets, logos, and color palette.

Spreadsheet reports including entries, payment transactions, scores, comments, judging progress, judging leaderboard, and votes leaderboard can be exported.

Four judging modes include: qualifying, with crowd consensus on which entries should qualify; top pick, using the single transferable vote (STV) system; voting, to engage participants with social sharing; and VIP judging, leveraging the knowledge of experienced judges.

Results from each stage of judging are presented on a leaderboard in real time, with the ability to sort and filter results.

We were manually collecting/managing awards before award force - so award force was incredibly welcomed.

Cons
I do find it frustrating that specific features are not present in the software.

I found it hard to visualise how to set up the system as a first time user, as there were no examples given for what I was looking for so the setup was a bit time consuming.

I DID ask if there was a file size limit for the upload (the answer is no) but I did not ask if the file sizes have an effect on the download.

Money, time and resources well spent!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Using a designated and bespoke product like AF, has taken out so much stress and uncertainty around getting the nominations in and judged remotely. we had over 1000 entries that needed to go through a very clear and strict judging process (in light of being fare and transparent ) We could let judging take place remotely and smoothly, with the confidence of our data security and personal reputational image being protected.

Pros

Everything! Especially the rep our account tech support manager. she was on hand 24/7 with not just support, but with solutions, and confidence building techniques to help me take charge of the growth of our work. The platform itself, is slick, very user friendly and a 100% reliable. It gave us the confidence we needed to launch our first annual HEAT awards. this has gone so well, we are already pencilling in next years campaign. Award Force have been the first and only platform I have used for this task, but I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. In the grand scheme of things the cost was extremely good for all the benefits we obtained, and even though our event programme is over, we are still able use all the data for our analysis and personal development.

Cons

In all honesty I have very little bad to say about the whole experience. If you really pushed me for a balanced review, I would have to say that on a couple of times and considering I emailed support up to 4 times a day in the build up of our launch. that if our designated manager was out of the office or had finished for the day. The person that took over sometimes was a little enthusiastic to come back with a response and not grasp how slow I was being. That's really nothing bad just maybe a pointer for the future that they get a summary of the clients habits and personal synopsis before responding to a query.

Vendor response

Thank you for your wonderful words, Matt! Specially appreciate the shout out to Rachel! Thank you also for the feedback about the support received from other members; we are a global team available 24x5 and feedback like this is valuable for us to be able to give more personalised service.

Great support, intuitive, submitters and judges love it!

Reviewed 9 months ago

This company really gets the importance of support. When onboarding, it's easy to get overwhelmed, worried, stressed, and panicked. We did not experience any of that when onboarding with AF. Our rep was with us the entire way. Our millions of questions (and sometimes duplicate questions a week later) were happily answered, she listened and used our particular nomenclatures when responding. I also love the "sanity check" that is offered when a new program is added. Having someone review our program before we go live is invaluable.

Pros

I love that is is easy for our members and judges to use. That ease of use helps with them participating in the awards program in subsequent years.

Cons

Nothing major comes to mind, but I have a couple of minor dislikes. I wish there was better sorting capabilities on the screen views. Not all columns can be sorted. Also, some times our I need to provide reports to our board that the system doesn't provide. Luckily I can download everything into excel and create my own "ad hoc reports when needed.

Awards tool for my awards program

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall experience is good with the tool. easy to set up and reviewing and run the nomination report. but the bug issue is keep happening all the time. this make me not very happy with this tool.

Pros

The structure, the analysis report, export the data I received. allow the attachment for people submission

Cons

there are some bugs happened in last couple of days when I open my nomination process to large audience.

Vendor response

Hi Betty, sorry for your troubles. From the support email we last exchanged, it seems the problem happened because of a setting issue. Your colleague Carl later switched it on and everything worked as expected. If there's anything else you would like to report, please let us know asap!

An Amazing Option for Project Management

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

It's amazing! It looks great, the forward facing aspect has gotten many compliments. You can customize and tweak so much that you can make it work for almost anything! And the price is great! Customer service is very responsive and so helpful! They clearly know their stuff.

Cons

-The built-in spreadsheet function is not great. -You can't have a submission from an anonymous source or without requiring a login. -If you want to have a lot of programs/ applications open at once, that tab view can get pretty cluttered and overwhelming. It would be nice if you could hide them by category or something.

A great fit for our contest

Reviewed 2 years ago

Last year, we chose Award Force to replace a competitor that was going to raise its price by an unreasonable amount. A year later, I wish we had chosen Award Force sooner! Easy to use for administrators, contest entrants and contest judges. The price is very reasonable and we are excited to start up our contest using Award Force for the second year in a row. Customer support is outstanding.

Pros

1. Ease to implement and manage for administrators. 2. Ease of use for end users (contest entrants). 3. Great set of tools to set up and use the contest judging component.

Cons

Just one thing. Wish the company could allow us to use our primary online payment vendor. We have an existing account for one that does work, but it'd be nice to consolidate and have just one product to deal with in terms of online payment. That said, Award Force has already listened to our concern and our request was forwarded on.
