New incentive platform from Edenred UK powers up sales, channel sales and customer service performance

Today, Edenred UK is launching Connect Incentive; an easy-to-implement, SaaS based incentives platform, which enables organisations to have a powerful engagement tool to drive performance through their channel or internal sales and customer service teams. Edenred UK is a part of a global group that is a leader in payment solutions for the working world, connecting 830,000 corporate clients, 47 million employee users and 1.7 million partner merchants across 45 countries.

Connect Incentive is an innovative platform that enables incentive programmes to be set up in minutes rather than weeks or months. It removes the admin challenges associated with running an incentive programme and is more cost-effective to run because it doesn’t need a costly IT project to get it up-and-running.

The platform is designed to give sales, channel sales and customer service leaders the tools they need to power up the performance of their teams through incentives, which are aligned to specific business targets. It means less time spent managing programmes, and more time maximising their success.

Connect Incentive enables organisations to run multiple incentive programmes for different teams at the same time, each with its own objectives and branding. It offers a choice of rewards either within the Edenred rewards catalogue of gift cards and eGift cards, or custom rewards, which are fulfilled outside the system such as holidays or client-managed rewards like a 2-hour lunch or leaving early.

Sitting alongside Connect Recognition, which is designed to support employee engagement through social recognition and Select, an instant digital reward solution, it is part of a new suite of Edenred platforms which enable organisations to reward, incentivise and recognise employees, increase engagement and enhance performance.

Jamie Clarke said: “Connect Incentive makes it fast, easy and cost effective to put in place schemes which will motivate teams, internal or third party, to deliver on your business goals.

Matching the fast-paced business environment, Connect Incentive is a technology platform that quickly and easily enables you to set up complex incentive programmes on the fly.

With no complex ‘IT project’, no hefty upfront costs, no painful admin to keep it running, this makes it is easier for organisations to drive performance from sales teams, channels partners, or employees.”
